1987 300D - $1250
Selling the wife's daily driver. Had it for over a year now, and haven't had time with switching jobs and readying the house to sell to finish the remaining things with it. It runs very very well. Transmission shifts fine. Interior is good shape for the age of the car. Some cracks in dash, drivers seat bolster wear. Other than that, it's quite nice.
Things it will need.
I bought a new condenser for it, as the old one was bad. I will include that with the car, it's new in the box. Also, the blower motor intermittently works. I bought a new unit complete with new cages as they tend to break when removing them when they're old and brittle. I will also include that as well. Will also need rust repair around the jackpoints where they rust.
I have to sell my house, so the extra toys will have to go. The thinning of the herd has to continue. The wife hates being put back into a W123, with the lack of acceleration vs. the OM603 in the W124, but she's making due. I'm trying to eliminate the W124's to simplify the parts I need to keep around, and I prefer the simplicity of the W123 personally. I have an 87 300TDT that will be coming up shortly for sale also (with the OE MB Clamshell carrier included), and then that will be the last one to go...
Any questions or any pictures of any particular areas needed, let me know.
Was in and out of the country over the last 2 weeks. If I can get out there tomorrow, I'll upload some pics.
In the meantime, here's a couple videos from earlier this year.
One driving it, and a quick walkaround in the other video.
Thanks! I want this to go to a really good home. I've been fortunate so far placing pieces from the collection with great people who are still keeping them on the road. I'd hoping to continue that. Whoever gets it, know in advance I'll be checking in every few months or so to see how it's doing.
