1979 Mercedes Benz 300 SD – W116 – Turbo Diesel $$$ For Sale $$$

304,000 miles, Cream Yellow w/ Tan interior, California car with minimal surface rust, needs work…

This was a great running car until the transmission stopped going into 2nd gear and above. I would drive the car around in first gear slow to keep the car running. The starter has now failed and the car won’t start.

I believe it needs an 80$ relay / regulator on the top of the transmission. I have checked all the vacuum connections and the readings were within spec.

The windows, door locks, and stereo, sunroof, and A/C also need repair.

This car is the first 4 door 5cyl. diesel turbo S-Class from Mercedes.

Here is the good: New Calipers, Rotors, Brake Lines, Front Bearings, Exhaust and other misc. parts…

These cars run forever and the W116 version is the best looking SD.
Give me a call if interested,

* 1,500$ Cash & bring a trailer *

The car is located in Bourne, MA.

If you need delivery near the location let me know.
