FS: 1985 Mercedes Benz 300TD Wagon manual trans - Euro

This is a very rare European 1985 300TD wagon (VIN# 1231901F054663) with a 4-speed manual transmission. This Classic White (737G) on shadow blue one-owner wagon belonged to a World Bank employee up until a few months ago and was obsessively maintained and cared for all its life. Every component is in good working order, every feature works (door locks, air conditioning, self-leveling suspension), and the car is mechanically sound (engine, transmission and clutch, tires, brakes, suspension, etc.).

Features:

- OM617 5-cylinder naturally aspirated (non-turbo) diesel engine with no emission controls
- European spec mechanical Bosch injection pump for high output
- European spec gearing and differential for high output
- Manual 4-speed transmission
- Manual climate control
- Manual windows
- Manual antenna and unique European Becker cassette stereo system
- Cloth interior in very good shape for its age and seat springs are in excellent condition
- Factory installed fire extinguisher under driver’s seat
- European spec front and rear bumpers
- European headlights with built in “City Lights” and vacuum height adjusters
- Rear fog light
- Hazard triangle
- Paint coordinated Mercedes Star hubcaps
- Second row headrests at all 3 positions
- Third row jump seat
- Luggage/roof rack
- Manual sunroof
- R12 factory air condition blows cold

The odometer reads 257k kilometers (160k miles) and the speedometer also reads in kilometers. With proper care and maintenance the vehicle will continue to give you enjoyment and fulfill its purpose indefinitely. This car was a driver, not a garage queen (even though when it wasn’t being driven, it was garaged). The pictures and video will give you an idea of the condition of this car, but you owe it to yourself to drive it and then you will fully understand.

PRICE: $9,850

An interesting car and presented fairly. Your earlier listing for this car on eBay is still up, though it ended in October. It may be helpful to those considering the car.

Good luck with this sale.

Thanks. Please be aware that we had extensive body and rust repair work done to the car since the ebay posting. The ebay listing is not accurate anymore.

^^^ You'd be smart to post pictures of the rust repair then.
