'83 300D Turbo Diesel for Sale - Alabama

1983 300D Turbo Diesel for sale.
$1000.00 firm.

Located in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.

Car has ~ 240k miles
Turbo works.
Runs good.
Body in good shape - no rust that I can find.
Floor pans have some surface rust and seat mounts have rust - will probably need replacing. Basically - the car shows its age.

I've replaced the glow plugs and return fuel lines. I've changed the oil with synthetic. I've changed the transmission fluid - actually, paid someone to change. I think they put the gasket in wrong because it's got a slow leak from the pan now. Either way - should be an easy fix. Battery is new. Gauges are all rebuilt. Interior lights work. Exterior lights all work.

For more info or picture requests - hit me up here.

I doubt it. I'm about ready to just let the recyclers haul it away for scrap. At least, that way, it'd be out of my driveway.

It's not that I lost patience. I wish I could keep him, actually. But my father passed away on 1/27 and I've inherited a house... which needs work... and will serve me better than a car will, sadly.

Thanks for the kind words.
I've had two bites so far locally - neither of which panned out.
As much as I love the car, I figured I'd post here because I know the members here (most of 'em anyway) have an appreciation for these things. And, that way, I know he'll go to a good home

Have had a lot of people asking me if I'm flexible on the price. Maybe. Depends on how you approach me with your request (read: I'm not calling out the individual who inundated me with private messages trying to haggle me down repetitively).

I wish I would have seen this post about two weeks earlier... I just bought an '83 300SD for 4g's... one owner; but in great condition. I would have bought one from someone from here because I know it would have been well cared for; service records or not.

She is a beaut though. I just don't think I need to drop another 1k right now. (That and AL. is only a 20 hour drive :-p)
