Arrow FS 1986 MB 300SDL TurboDiesel Long Body Very Good Condition

Ok, for sale is a 1986 300SDL that I procured with the intention of converting it to WVO, however, in the meantime, I lost my job and have to sell some of my toys / projects.
Chances are, if you are reading this, or have searched for this, know exactly what it is. This MB has the inline 6 cylinder turbo diesel that I am informed has the better designed head which does not have the "bent-rod" plague. it is the long body and it's in very good condition considering it's age and that someone went though the pain of restoring it.


- Inline 6 turbo diesel
- Runs very good
- Always run sulfur additive*
- 250k mi
- Recent minor overhaul including alternator, belts, gaskets, glow plugs (though the light occasionally stays on), new battery, new fuel filter, fresh LOF, really needs nothing.
- Turbo works very well: steady boost with no issues
- Average 24.6MPG
- Transmission shifts well with no slippage

- Fresh color-matched paint job (champagne)
- All lights work
- Headlight washers/wipers
- New tires
- New brakes
- All perfect glass
- 1 dent on LF fender
- All trim intact
- No leaks

- Very good condition
- Re-dyed upholstery to OE
- All trim intact
- All windows work
- All seats work
- Dials work (fuel stuck on full though)
- Mirrors work
- Heat works
- Radio does not work
- A/C does not blow cold
- Sunroof needs motor/cable (Have complete replacement unit, just trying to find reliable installer)

If you have any questions please feel free to ask.

Price: $3400 obo.
