FS: 1982 300D Turbo Diesel-California Car-Low Miles

1982 Mercedes Benz 300D Turbo Diesel-former California Car-Low Miles. Car is now in the Boston area. Only 115,500 miles.

I love the car, but the wife wants something newer with things like air bags, etc. Asking $4,100 OBO.

This is my daily driver for a 20 mile commute each way. Averages 24-25 MPG in mixed driving and likely gets around 30 MPG on the highway. It cruises comfortably at 70 MPH, and will easily go faster. It runs clean and does not belch smoke.

This car spent most of its 29 years in California, so there is virtually zero rust. Only two or three winters in New England after a brief stay in Florida. The interior is in excellent shape. The MB-Tex seats have no holes, tears or stains. Carpets are excellent. Interior roof and trim upholstry very good.

Mechanically it is in great shape. All original equipment. Engine starts right up even in very cold weather, though it does have a block heater. It also has an electric sliding roof, power windows and locks (all work). It is a 4-speed automatic. It drives very nicely; straight and smooth. Heat works fine. Air conditioning doesn't work. I estimate the snow tires have about 75% life left. A second set of all-season(?) tires is also included.

This engine is the OM617.95x, 3.0 liter, inline 5-cylinder engine. At 115k miles, this one still has a long life ahead of it. Body style is the W123 sedan. This car is a very well preserved example of the stylish 300D. I have all of the receipts for service and repairs since it was new. Complete records including the original window sticker! (1982 sticker price was $31,227).

Work in the past year:
Oil changes every 3,000 miles.
New belts.
Air filter replaced.
Right upper & lower ball joints replaced.
Front brake pads and rotors replaced; wheel bearings repacked.

$4,100 OBO. Calll Jason at 508-423-4660 or email skippybrew@hotmail.com
