1987 300D Cabernet Red w/beige tex 230k miles $2500

I bought this car as a parts car, but its such a great car, with such a great interior its a shame to rip it apart.

Its 230k miles, runs good, 2 owners with the books. Cabernet red with beige tex, seats work, sunroof works, heat works (PO said the a/c works). No rips in the seats, dash is good. Speedo & tach work fine. Carpets are nice, has MB overmats.

Has the newer vacuum pump, tensioner has been swapped. Runs as well as any 603 I've seen.

Has rust in the rockers (the worst part of the car) but I'll include a pair of the later plastic rocker covers. Oxidized paint on the hood and roof.

Its on the original trans, so I'll include a spare trans (that worked but its TMU) so you can rebuild or whatever, the blower motor is making a little noise, so I'll include a spare.

The hood pad is new. The ball joints have been changed. The wheels and tires are great, the exhaust system is a couple of years old. The central locking works.

Headlight doors have been changed. Bumpers are good

The car won't shut off on the key, and the adjuster knob on the throttle cable is broken.

Rides and drives great.



Send me an email and I will send a couple of videos.
