1983 300SD Turbo Diesel For Sale

I have had this vehicle for about 8 months. It sat for 5 years, undriven, and with a flush of fluids, new tires, recharged the battery it started right up and I drove it home. The engine has between 60,000 and 65,000 miles. My intent was to restore this to its former beauty, however, with the loss of employment and the $$$ involved I have decided to sell this car. Here is what I know it needs; either a new battery or alternator, windshield wiper motor, windshield needs to be replaced, cosmetic repair to dash and a paint job. I am asking $1,000 (one thousand dollars) firm. This car is located in Murfreesboro TN about 4.5 miles south of I24. Serious buyers only please. My personal email is michele.kinnane@comcast.net

I've had a lot of lookers but no comments or interest. I did not mention in the ad that this Mercedes has an inline 5 engine (diesel), I acquired this from a friend who inherited it when her grandfather passed away a little over 5 years ago. She drove it twice, decided it was not for her and parked it. Poor little car sat unattended for 5 years and remarkably started right up and made the 80 mile trip to my home. I know the mileage I stated is accurate, I have driven this car maybe 10 times since I got it, it passed emissions without a hitch and although cosmetically it needs attention I know the engine is sound. Rear brakes and brake lines have been replaced, all filters have been replaced, all fuses have been replaced. My asking price is what I have in the car, we could replace the alternator, if that is why the battery won't hold a charge, add the price to the cost of the car and whomever purchased it could drive away in it. Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated. The man who owned this car started a diesel mechanic school in Nashville TN many years ago, he was very proud of his vehicles and if I remember correctly he owned 2 Jaguars and 3 Mercedes, all garaged until his death. Looking for advice so would welcome your comments. Mrs. Ted
