FS: 1985 Mercedes 300D Turbo

I hate to see her go, but I'm moving and so I got to let her go.

5 Cylinder 3.0L Turbo
Automatic
141,xxx Miles
2nd owner
Clean inside and out

In terms of the work that was done on her. The tires I had replaced, all 4, with all season Pirelli P4, a couple of years ago. Still lots of tread left on them. Had all 4 shocks replaced with Bilstein's. The back rear disc rotors were replaced with Beck Arnley's.The back right rear brake caliper was replaced. All 5 glow plugs were replaced. Starter was replaced along with the battery.

I do have some extra parts that I intended to use to change on her but never got the time around to do so myself. They include:

8 quarts of 15w-40 castrol gtx diesel engine oil
Oil filter
Fuel filter, both primary and secondary
New set of front brake pads along with the sensors
Fuel treatment
I did replace the windshield wiper inserts
I do have a new downpipe that I bought a while back. For some reason I just ended up buying it, because back when I was younger i thought that it would help increase HP, I was dumb and naive.


$4000 OBO
Located Southern Cali.

Serious Buyers.

Thanks. Not quite the Galleria but good guess, just a parking structure nearby.

Beautiful car, I've actually been looking for something with better gas mileage than my car for my daily driver, but the price is a little too high on this. GLWS!

Too bad you're not on the East Coast. I'm looking for a 85' in Silver, but with black interior. I would consider swapping in the black because there are so many out here with black interior and its an easy swap.

I'd have to see the car before I could give you a price, I hate to negotiate not in person. Also, was just looking at your previous posts and you stated their were problems with the cars starter (which you seemed to fix) but there was also a problem with the tranny. Did you get that fixed or rebuilt by any chance? Any other issues with the car that you know of?

Please let me know, I also live in the L.A area so I might be able to come take a look at her. Thanks.

I did end up getting a new starter a couple of years ago. Along with a new battery which I had tested and replaced in June on this year. I also had the glow plugs replaced along with the fuel return lines. In terms of the tranny, I only changed the fluid and filter, back then. Don't seem to have any noticeable problems with the tranny. The downfall is that the A/C doesn't work. Compressor seized up. But if you want to come and see it let me know. I live on the boarder of LA and Ventura County, so if you'd like we could meet up to show the car.
