For Sale-1983 Mercedes Benz 300SD - $2000 (Issaquah,WA)

I have been owning this car since 2008. This has been a California Car all its life and I brought it to Seattle,WA last year; Not exposed to salting of roads. Ever since I bought this, I have been pampering her with all the services/parts, she needed. Very sound, no rust/rot. The engine pulls strong and the transmission shifts smooth and tight. I got this serviced by Mercedes Garage, Bellevue WA last year spending quite a large amount.

New Steering Gear Box
Valve Adjustment and resealed valve cover with new valve cover gasket
Replaced all drive belts
Vacuum Service
New Door Vacuum Pump
Replaced Idler Arm Bushings
Replaced Steering Shock
New Brake Pads and Sensors
Replaced The Engine Hood Pad
Transmission Service
New (4) Flexible Brake Hoses
Serviced/Flushed/Refilled Transmission, Differential, Power Steering, Brake, Coolant systems
Recharged A/C with R134A
New glow plugs

The car has 250K Miles original miles on the clock.

Repainted 2 years ago
Has 4 new Michelin Primacy MXV-4 Tires from COSTCO (October 2012)
Has Chrome Centra Wheels.
New Radio CD Player and USB Port
New Window Regulator switches which I fixed recently.
New Safelite Windshield in 2011
Euro Headlights with new bulbs from Autolamps.com
Euro Corners
Replaced Tail Lamp Lenses
New Battery (2 years old)
New Floor Mats from Costco
A/C and Heater work very well
Car starts right up even in cold climates without any trouble.

Now for the Bad:
The Tachometer in inop
Cruise Control does not work.
Antenna does not work.
Sun Roof: Though I got this serviced, it opens only partially.

The car has California tags valid till December 2013.

I have all the service records/bills since Aug. 2008 and some from the previous owner.

I am relocating to India; hence I want to sell the car and want her to go to new home. I am not in a hurry to sell.
Priced to sell.
Serious inquires only. Cash or cashier's check only. No personal checks. Call Ram : 714-718-3592. Pl. leave a msg and your phone no., if busy. I will get back to you ASAP.

Nice looking car at a nice price. If I was in the market, I'd get it.

Amazing how well these cars age. If you were in Portland I would be tempted.
