FS: 1980 300CD

New Tires (400 miles on them)
New AC Compressor
New Accumulator
New Expansion Valve
New Right Front Caliper

I noticed a PS leak. So, I dropped it off last night to be fixed.

It has rust in the usual spots starting to show a bit.

Drives VERY well, very tight steering and suspension.

Needs some attention on rust in spots, and some interior trim items, (window regulators...etc.)

$2000 cash takes it. It was painted 12 years ago, and still looks amazing for its age.

I need to start getting rid of stuff in case I need to relocate.

I have other cars I am selling also, I will be listing them here and waiting a couple weeks before listing on CL and then Ebay.

Any questions, just let me know.

Sounds like a very nice deal...
Would have been nice if you had listed the mileage, and a bit of the recent service history.
Good luck with the sale...

Where is it again that we are going... And why are we in a handbasket?

I'm not sure what the odometer reads. I think it's under 200,000, but if I recall, it doesn't work.

As far as recent service, it's the items that were mentioned in the original post.

Thanks for the response.

Good price for a long lifer and a great colour.
As to the other vehicles for sale? If your signature is up to date they all look to be diesels. Can you give us a hint as to what is coming up?

PS leak fixed. It was the lid to the pump. He said I didn't have it tightened down enough. He checked it all over, and he found no leaks anywhere else.

If I had $2000, I'd buy it in a heartbeat. Where in Roanoke is the car located?

I'm in Bedford, between Roanoke and Lynchburg. If anyone wants to see it, I should be available late this week or this weekend. I am traveling for work mostly until then.

The wife and I took it out this morning for the first time in 10 months for a pleasure drive! I wish I had the time to enjoy it. We drove it by my fathers house on the way home, and he suggested that I take a few pics of there since it's such a nice day. So here you go! I'll try to get pics of the interior and engine area this week if I get a chance. Also, I've never been able to open the trunk since I've had it. So, to whoever gets it, once you take it by a locksmith, and get the truck open, definitely let me know what's in there. Every time I look at the car, my mind wanders as to what is in there...

I hope everyone is having a great weekend!

Take care.
