1987 300TDT for Sale

I have to let my 300TDT go.. School fees have gone up much more than was expected this year so she has to go.
UPDATE: have just posted it on Ebay heres the link


I have posted video on Youtube - see the link below for one of the videos.



Is completely stock, starts and runs as it should doesn't use or loose oil.

Thought I should answer a few questions I have had since posting the add.

The A/C needs a new Expansion Valve, I took it for a recharge (was working fine but not quite as cold as it used to be) and the shop pressurized the system too much and blew the valve. I have a new one but have not fitted it.

The drivers side rear window sometimes goes down when you ask it to and sometimes it doesn't.

Transmission sometimes shifts hard (going up). I had it looked at and it needs the usual vacuum adjustment. Had planned on doing it but I simply don't have the $$ at this point.

The video of the receipts was simply to show the folder/history of work that has been done since 98. Totals over $20K. One particular invoice (around 2001) is for over $8K. So as you can imagine it has been a previous owners pride and joy - as it has mine but I have not had to spend anything on it other than oil changes. Most recent invoice was in June (PO) for the drivers side rear wheel bearings - replaced.

The video of the spare parts - The car I had previous to this was a 91TE and I just started collecting parts as and when I saw them at the local pick-and-pull. As you can see they are all like new and I am happy to let them go with the car, that, by the way, doesn't need any of these parts - so they are useful "spares"

No clue what it's worth but am open to offers. One just sold on Flea-bay for $3,800. It has been incredibly well taken care of.

Va inspected until end June 2013.

Some basics would be helpful... paint color? interior color? mileage? VIN for CarFax/AutoCheck reports? Photos (besides the videos)?

FYI... the rear window issue is almost guaranteed to be a broken wire in the door jamb. Very common. The tranny shifting hard should be a free fix if you're a DIY'er.
