FS: 1985 MB 300TDt

1985 MB 300TD T (wagon) - White/Navy MB Tex 216,610 miles. Was 90% restored in 2006. New upper and lower oil pans, New vacuum pump, various vacuum lines connectors, New paint, blacked-out trim, new headliner, sunroof seals, added rear facing seat which was recovered by Mobile Trim in Memphis The car developed a leak which is noticeable after a heavy rain; Interior was pulled (carpet and seats) and reinstalled when I felt I had found the cause. I did not. There is some mildew; however the headliner is not and seats were cleaned. The car is currently on American Racing 3 piece look wheels with rotten rubber. I have been given an ultimatum from my wife to have it gone by November. Car has lots of potential but I have run out of time. $1500 OBO.

are those bricks holding up the exhaust?

can you tell us more about the wheels?

is every piece of exposed chrome blacked out? what did you use to do it and what was the process? can it be removed easily (plasti-dip)?

For Sale Again

Car was sold on E Bay, but the buyer never responded to numerous requests by email and phone to pay for and pick up car.

So sorry to hear that !

I've had trouble with non paying deadbeat timewasters on ebay lately too....

And then there are those ebayers that bid to win and then disregard the 'terms of the sale' completely and pay in their own sweet time....

Very little can be done through ebay is what I have discovered....

Your car looks like a good buy !! Good luck...
