FS- 1985 Mercedes 300D

Classic sedan in need of transmission rebuild to keep it on the road for another 28 years.
Alternatively, this gray market vehicle could be a great source of sought-after parts.
191,000 miles on the clock; exterior in great condition with no dents or scratches; interior in fair shape, with some cracked plastic but no tears in upholstery.
She starts every time and runs well, but has reached the point where she needs a transmission rebuild. Estimated cost for the job is $2,000.
In view of this, I am asking $3,600.
Based in Lincoln City, on the Oregon Coast. Happy to answer any questions.

Why don't you get a rebuilt from Sun Valley and swap it out yourself? It would be a lot less than $2000.

What makes you think this is a grey market car? I see no euro features and its a turbo....3600$ for a car needing a trans, that is probably with a working trans is only worth 3500$ is a lot.....

If you can add engine photos, things that have been done....fluid, filter changes, major work...may help retrieve an offer...
