1981 300D w123 - $1800obo

Car is not running- will need engine rebuilt or replaced. However, everything else is in great working condition. Located in Atlanta, GA

For sale for $1800 or best offer. Maple yellow 1981 Mercedes 300D. Approximately 170k miles on the car. I bought the car, put several thousand dollars of new parts into it, and then the engine threw a rod. I think this means that the engine needs to be replaced entirely. A good engine for this car can be bought for around $500, I just cannot afford to have it put in and lack the expertise myself. The transmission is good. New brakes (brand new machined rotors and pads-fully rebuilt $1600)! 4 New tires (less than 2k miles on them $370). New interstate battery ($140). Brand new radiator ($600) I have all the receipts for the work, and all was done by professionals at Fullerton Goodyear. All belts basically new as well. AC has been converted to R-134a refrigerant and charged by an EPA certified AC mechanic; blows cold. The interior is great, and the seats are full leather (not the more common MB Tex option). The paint is a bit faded, as can be expected for a 30 year old vehicle, but cosmetically she is in great condition as well. Original working Becker radio. Huge, working sunroof. I have put over $4000 into the car. It handled and drove beautifully before the engine blew and I'm sure will do again with a little work. I really need the money and am just trying to recoup some of what I put in. The car is at my mom's house in East Cobb, but call or email me and I can take and send more pictures or we can set up a meeting to look at the car. I am somewhat desperate to sell this, but not enough to take crazy lowball offers. Sold as-is, $1800 or reasonable offer takes it. Please call or text 404-680-0849 for more info. Emails will also be returned very promptly.
