1984 Mercedes 300D Turbo Sedan. This has been my baby since 2001 and has served me well. I bought it with 172,000 miles on it and have replaced many parts since I have had it.
I currently have 248,618 on the Odometer.
Now for the Bad, car will have to be towed or loaded on to a car carrier, it will run and drive short distances, but there is a large knock in the engine and that will need to be rebuilt. My friend borrowed the car when it was in L.A. and ran the thing with the thermostat stuck shut until the engine overheated.
In addition, the exhaust system from the down Y in the middle of the car, although the way back is missing, it fell off on the ride to L.A. in Colorado, although it sounded amazing until the engine overheated a month later.
The rear bumper is also missing, but I can see if I still have it around.
The sound system may be worth more than the car, with Focal speakers added in the front foot well’s and two large Amps in the trunk, plus four upgraded speakers in the car for a total of 6 speakers. The radio is also capable of having an IPOD plugged in directly.
There is a Wilson CB antenna wired into the vehicle and set for a lip trunk mount. The vehicle has 4 Blizzak Snow Tires on it as well.
Everything worked on it prior to the epic trip it had out West.
THIS WAS MY FIRST BABY INTO THE WORLD OF THE W123 CHASSIS
MANY NEW PARTS OVER THE LAST 12 YEARS I HAVE OWNED IT
A GREAT SOUND SYSTEM
THE VIRGIN GUADELOUPE SHIFTER
MISSING REAR BUMPER
ENGINE HAS A LOUD KNOCKING NOISE AND WILL NEED A REBUILD, BUT IT STILL STARTS SO PROBABLY BAD BEARINGS.
BOTH MUFFLERS IN THE MIDDLE OF COLORADO, BUT MAN DOES IT SOUND NICE, I WOULD HAVE STRAIGHT PIPED IT IF MY FRIEND DIDN’T KILL THE ‘UNBREAKABLE’ ENGINE OF ALL TIME THAT NORMALLY GOES A MILLION MILES.
SOME RUST SPOTS, NOTHING TOO EXTREME
YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE TO TOW THIS AWAY, BUT IT CAN DRIVE UP ON A TRANSPORTER SO THAT’S A PLUS
