1987 300TD Wagon with OEM roof carrier - $2400

Well, I sold the 87 300D a couple weeks ago to a fellow forum member here, and down to the last W124, the rare bird. I bought this with intentions of getting it all polished up and giving it to the wife for a DD. A combination of my current situation of needing to move and thin down the collection, and not being overly impressed with W124's vs. W123's from a simplicity and build quality standpoint has made this sale possible. I haven't really touched this car since getting it. My parents borrowed it while they looked for a second car, and my mother drove it, but that's been about it. It's got one of the most rust free W124 300TD bodies I've seen, which is why I bought it. I could only find 1 spot under the drivers side taillight which is in the pictures. Things that I know of that it would need are diff mount bushings in the rear. It does fine driving, but has play you can hear while coming to a stop while downshifting. You can see they are worn out when under the car. I bought a set, and will include these in the sale. Also, the blower worked when I got the car intermittently, but does not now. AC compressor is free spinning. I bought a W124 blower with cages new, but haven't been able to find it. If I locate it before it's sold, I'll throw that extra in for free. The PO thought he blew a head gasket when his wife took out the radiator with a curb. Where the leak was coming from was a small split in the lower hose which I assume happened during the impact. Anyway, after installing a brand new BEHR radiator, and replacing the hose with a used one from PAP, it's fine. Also included is an OEM W124 MB rooftop carrier. This will go with it as I have no need for it. The turbo doesn't seem to spool. It's free, and has no lateral play that I can determine. So, either the feed line is plugged, or it could have an exhaust restriction. It's got dings and dents, by no means a show car, but at this price, reasonable for a very solid bodied single year US model W124 wagon. Clear is peeling on top surfaces. Tires are good to very good. Drives well, VERY smooth on the highway. I just wish the interiors were put together a bit better. Seems cheapish and not as well thought out as the W123's. But, I'll give it the credit of being a WAY more modern feeling E-Class. That said, we compromised and I got her a 1985 300D, the most advanced W123 with reasonable power for her DD. So, if you've been looking for one of these wagons and like the extra feature of the OEM roof carrier, and want to tinker with it, it would be a nice ride for any W124 wagon lover. I'll try to answer any other questions, but this car I know the least about as it's just sat in a carport until my parents used it, and I lost interest in W124's, and now am shopping for a house and selling off some cars to relocate closer to my job. The car is at my fathers home as they just got a second car, and I haven't gone over to bring it back with the wife, so it may take a bit for me to answer a question that requires a ride over there to verify on site.

Take care.

Here are some pictures. Some are in light rain, so I went back over and shot more pics in sunny weather. I'll just post them all. Hope it goes a true fan of these.

Glad to hear you sold the sedan. Would you be able to get the car to the DC area if I bought it?

It's possible. If you'd be able to add $250 for travel (my wife and I), I would either bring it on a trailer, or take 2 cars and drive back one. It's about a 4 hour drive one-way from here. I'd have to do math to see if trailering it would make more sense vs. taking 2 cars. The wife's openness to drive 4 hours following me would also need to be factored in...

Also, I am almost positive this car has the third seat option. REALLY almost super positive. But will verify for absolute it does sometime before Monday if I can get over there.
