FS 1992 MB 300D -w124

I've decided to give up on fixing the old gal. I can't seem to source any parts cars around me so...

This is well sought after for veggie oil conversions. She was running great until a lady decided it was her turn to go at the stop sign and hit me. I was going to fix the wheel and fender, but with work and lack of parts cars just haven't had time.

The good:
Body is dent and rust free and other than the right front fender

Interior is good. Door panels, dash, seats (driver seat has some wear), headliner, etc

All windows (and sunroof) open close properly, no leaks.

Tires are good (though the rear one has slowly lost air while sitting)

Engine has 377k miles, but was running strong. No burning of oil (more than diesels normally do), turbo no issues. Regularly changed oil.

Transmission was shifting fine

No electrical issues

No vacuum issues

The bad:
Obviously the front fender/wheel damage

Clearcoat is worn off most the car

Will have to be towed on a carrier or dolly. Car is located in Johnson City, TN

If you have any questions, or need more pictures feel free to let me know.

Text or call 423.5 three four - 28 twenty.


I'd rather not piece/part her out unless necessary.

I'm asking $1,650 on my local craigslist (given everyone here is pretty knowledgeable I trust to tell me if I'm asking an unreasonable amount.)

377k and a folded front wheel?
In the plus, its a oft looked for 124 diesel, the bad....I cant see its worth more than 1/2 your asking price max.
