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.
