1981 300D for sale- Chicago

Mercedes-Benz - 300-Series
1981 Mercedes 300D
  • Item ID: 120752362749
  • ZIP Code: 60305
  • Price: $2300.00
  • Description: One of the best running Mercedes diesels I have ever owned and a rare find for this price in the Midwest without major rust.
    300D, five cylinder, non-turbo, automatic. Smoother than the 240D with more horsepower. Ready for bio-fuel with minimum effort.
    Here is an HONEST description of condition:
    Odometer says 131K, but the previous owner says it stopped working approx. 65K ago, so the best estimate would be around 200K. Originally a North Carolina car, with only 3 years in Chicago. Some small surface rust spots starting, but no rust holes. Paint still shines, no clear coat peeling, but could use a repaint to look nice. Some minor dents and dings, but she won't embarrass you at the country club. Don't get me wrong, the old girl is not perfect by any means, but looks presentable and has no mechanical issues. Needs tie rod ends to tighten the steering, but I have a new set that will be included for you to install. Interior in good shape with some light dash-top cracks. Newer radio not working, (don't know why). Sunroof currently in-op. Can hear the sunroof motor running, but the cable may be broken. Power windows working with exception of the left rear. Vacuum locks in-op, but doors lock with the key. Four newer tires, (all match), brakes work fine. Small exhaust leak in center pipe, (manifold to muffler fine otherwise). 4-speed automatic trans with auxiliary vacuum adjustment valve for fine-tuning shifts. Newer glow plugs and injectors, so she starts in the winter without a block heater every time.
