1986 300 SDL for sale

Hello All,
I have a 1986 Mercedes 300 SDL that I would like to sell. It's got 226,000 miles on it and runs, but not so well. I will be frank and won't sugar coat anything. I am selling my Mercedes because I don't have the time, money, or resources to properly restore/repair and maintain this car. I just bought a Mazda Miata and no longer need this car, though I must admit, even through its problems, I did like it. I would like to get at least $1500 but will consider all offers. To justify this, my car has the 603 engine with the #22 head which I've seen sell alone for $750. Fair price? I think so.
The bad:
-Burns a quart of oil every 150-200 miles
-Nock in engine, don't know what's causing it
-Sometimes gets stuck in first gear ( about once or twice a month )
Short term solution: shift into neutral and then back into drive
May be low on transmition fluid
-Needs new tires very soon
-Memory seats forget
-Clock, radio, and dash backlighting does not operate
-Small rip in worn drivers seat

The good:
-Clean title
-603 engine with a #22 head ( I've seen these heads alone sell for $700 )
-New oil and filter less than 1000 miles ago
-New battery
-Still is a pleasure to drive
-All seats but the drivers seats are in pretty good condition
-Power windows work
-AC works
-Heater works
-Body is very straight with only a few door dings
-Still gets 20-25 miles to the gallon

Here is the link to more pictures of my Mercedes: http://www.flickr.com/photos/9380620...7635106529184/

For any questions, feel free to email me. I live in the Sacramento area of California.
Thank you, Phillip

Hello Mike,
Yes, I think it would make it to Pheonix on its own. I've driven it a little over 2000 miles during the past year, mainly to school, track and Cross Country meets. It has never ceased to start right up and get me anywhere I've needed to go. However, if I were to drive all the way to Arizona, I would probably consider having the tires replaced as they are on their last legs. Other than that, I would feel perfectly fine driving it to Arizona or even farther.
Phillip

Love the color. Btw, the W126 forum has its own for sale thread and it may get you more exposure.
