FS 1978 300CD in Tampa, FL
Up for sale is my trusty and babied 1978 Mercedes Benz 300CD non-turbo diesel. I have owned this car for about 5 years and it has been truly a great car. Its use has been for cruising on the weekends and going to vintage car shows.
Excellent condition having an older repaint with no signs of overspray and very well done to match door jams and undersides.
Third owner with only 169k miles on its very well working odometer. All instruments work as does the clock!
Interior is in near perfect condition having no tears, loose seams, stains or issues. Seats are flawless as is the carpeting. Headliner is excellent with just a tiny mark on the sunroof liner. Dashboard is in near perfect condition with no cracks or issues.
All glass is perfect having no tint or cracks or road chips. Exception is rear glass that has slight staining on bottom edge.
All the electronics work as they should including vintage Becker radio with am/fm and tape as well as the 4 speakers. Rear left window is disabled due to missing pin in window assembly. All windows are power and work properly although a bit slow but certainly close properly.
Motor is very clean and starts right up with no unusual smoking or rattles. New glow plugs, rebuilt injectors, recent valve adjustment, New head gasket, New water pump, New belts, Recent upgraded radiator and overflow setup along with new hoses, Recent complete oil change, Recent fuel filters, Recent all fuel lines replaced.

This car was setup for partial WVO use having proper fuel lines and added fuel rail heaters. Presently disabled due to not using WVO in past 2 years.
