1985 300D GREAT SHAPE

I have a 1985 300D with 155K miles on the Car and 178K on the motor. I bought the car with intentions of fixing it up, but have two other projects that i am working on and i just don' t have time for it. It has been garage kept. I bought it with blown motor, and bought a used engine to swap into it. It runs really great and shifts out beautifully. The interior is fantastic. The seats have no holes or tears. The windows and sunroof work -we can test them) I could part it out and get more cash, but don't want to do that as it is such a fine car. It rides really great. I priced getting the interior done on the 84 i had and it was over $1000. I did not install the AC compressor when i put it all back together, but it is available. Let me know what you think about it.

I finally got it out this weekend and ran it several miles after i figured out the thermostat was in backwards and temp gauge started working.

It can be set up to run WVO. I had an 84 running on it recently. I can install a kit of your choice at your expense. I have some suppliers i have used or can design a custom system that best fits you and your abilities. Let me know if you are interested. I am an official installer for Plant Drive Systems!

Pics available email-- You won't find an 85 much cleaner that has not been reworked.

I've spent that much getting it to where it is now. I've totaled right at 1900 off of the top of my head where different parts have been bought. I'm asking 2000 and gonna have to stay real close to that for the money i have in it, labor and most importantly the shape of the car. Not many interiors are still this good and i'm very impressed with motor and transmission.
