This car is only sold because I have too many cars and I just purchased a sweet 350SD. The car is in good condition. The rubber is in good shape, there are a few dings on bumpers but overall it is still an awesome car and I love it. The interior is in good shape with minor cracks on the wood and center console. The upholstery is great, as is all the glass and rubber. Updates include regular maintenance documented, all scheduled oil changes and fuel filters with quality German filters. New Bilstein shocks, rear springs, tie rods, brakes and rotors front, oil cooler lines, power steering filter serviced, fuel return lines, valves regularly serviced, new glow plugs, new headlights, transmission serviced and filter change, various relays, front seats re stuffed, new blower, climate control servo, fuel shutoff, mono valve, injector dampening bolt. I performed some oil and fuel filter changes and all other work was done at Euro Spec in Asheville, they know this car. I am sure there are other things but I cant remember, it’s a great running car and one of the most iconic engines ever built, I would love to keep this car but I have too many. The speedometer does not work but I am guessing the car has about 175-180,000 miles. I have done all the mechanical bits and you get to enjoy the smooth ride at my expense. I will take great pleasure to know that someone will take this car to the next level, as I was getting ready to do, it is a true classic, the last year of the 617, 5 cylinder Diesel. I ran B-20 in the car a few times and B-99 once, other than that it has been regular diesel with lots of shots of cetane boost. .
The things that are wrong with the car include slight cracking on some of the wood trim, and center console, the dash has minor cracks. The exterior has a few dings and the bumpers could stand to be sprayed. The bottom of the driver door has some rust, it is not visible except on the Driver door threshold. I was getting ready to take the car to the body shop to have this repaired and the gray trim sprayed, but I bought the 350 SD instead. This car needs a trip to the body shop to make her look awesome, the engine is top notch. The paint is good and not faded and cleans up really well. The car will need new tires sooner than later. I have driven this car all over KY and IN and would not hesitate to drive it anywhere, this is an awesome car. These cars do require some maintenance in order for everything to work properly, hopefully this car will go to an enthusiast and not someone that will run it into the ground, but whoever brings cash will be the winner. Good title ready to go. The 1985 300sd is cool, looks great, classic style, clean lines, awesome engine, and she will hold her own at the valet stand and for 15% the cost of a new car. How many 85 Buicks do see on the road that look this good.
