1987 300D FOR SALE

Need to sell my 1987 300D. I am picking up another car and need the parking spot.

204,000 miles, AC does not work, everything else works as it should though the drivers window has started to only work sometimes. Seems to be the switch, though I have not dug into it to find out. I have a bunch of extra switches and I will swap it out to confirm.

Car has aftermarket custom interior installed by PO. The interior is in great shape (vinyl two tone) and the front seats were rebuilt, including all springs fixed and the seat bases were lengthened about 2 inches. They are incredibly comfortable, though probably not to everyone's taste.

Does not leak/burn oil, running Rotella 15w-40. Has new (Kaehler) OVP, all filters/oil changed within last 1000 miles. Tires have about 50% tread. All major suspension components new within last 5000 miles including struts, towers and rear shocks. Car rides very well. Head gasket changed at 189,000 miles. No oil in coolant.

I am selling because i do about 95% of my driving in town and I would like to sell and pick up a 300e. I feel badly not running this car as it should be run. My in town mileage has averaged out to be 21mpg.

Transmission has fresh filter and fluid. There is occasionally a flare from 2-3 under heavy acceleration. I have the upgrade spring kit for it, but it has not been installed.

Rear windows have new regulators. Headlights are the ugly ricer type but I have the originals and the wipers. Or swap in Euros as it is already wired for them.

Jack points have some surface rust, small rust spot on the lower truck lid and paint is shot on the trunk and roof. Has some dings as would be expected for a 27 year old daily driver.

I am sure there are some things am forgetting.

$1800 obo. Car is located in Alexandria, VA and has a valid safety inspection.

PM/email me for more pics as I am having trouble getting them to load. I would love to have this car gone by Saturday! Clean and clear title and ready to go.

I don't at the moment, but I will up load some when I get home this evening. For some reason I am not able to get them to load. The layout is similar to the attached with darker middle panels (dark taupe color) and lighter (dark grey) outer panels. It is vinyl and done well. The brown cover you see is just that, a cover. It is on there to keep dirt and grease off the seat. There are no rips or cuts or tears in the interior.

It also has new carpet throughout that is very dark grey.

Ha. They were put in my the previous owner at a cost of $2200. I saw the receipt. Apparently the old interior, which was grey, didn't suit him so he had that custom job done. They were not great to look at, but they really were comfortable and very well made. He was a tall guy (as I am) and he had the seat bases extended 2". It made for a very comfortable ride. He also shortened the armrest which I also liked.

He had also taken the center console wood out, moved the window switches, etc to the spot where the ashtray is and converted the center area to a spot with 2 cup holders. It was covered in the same vinyl as the seat inserts. I took it out almost immediately.
