1983 300SD (with lorinser parts) $3750 obo NorCal

Edit: $2250 OBO, or less with the stock parts put back on.

I have owned this car for nearly 3 years and still drive it everyday.

In the past 3 years I have done the following:

Rebuilt front suspension (ball joints, bushings, tie rods, etc)

Bilstien Shocks and Sportservice Lorinser springs

16X8 Lorinser RS90 wheels with 225/50-15 BFG G-Force Super Sport A/S tires

Bosch Euro Headlights with Lamin-X protective Film

Euro Bumpers

Euro Warning Triangle in trunk

Injection Pump, turbo and steering box replaced with low mileage used parts.

Changed Transmission fluid and filter (about a year ago)



Valve Adjustment

Engine oil and filter

Rear diff oil

Front brake pads, rotors, calipers, flex lines and brake fluid

Valve Adjustment and new valve cover gasket

New Factory Engine Mounts

New Fuel Lines and Injector bleed lines

Replaced Rear Seat with a newer one that has headrests

Oil pan and gasket, and turbo and oil separator oil drain seals.

The car runs and drives well, and the interior is in great shape. No body damage beyond a few door dings and the paint still looks shiny, but has peeling clear coast in a few areas.

According to the previous owner the timing chain and injectors have been replaced once, and the transmission rebuilt. He didn't have any receipts for the work though.

The odometer doesn't work, and didn't when I bought it, so I don't know how many miles are on it. I do have 2 extra gauge clusters, I just don't know how to remove it from the car to swap them.

Extra Parts:
These I would sell separate as well:
Additional Euro warning triangle, Stock Headlights, bumpers springs and bundt wheels with tires iin fair condition, Depo euro headlights,
These will either be sold with the car or will be available once the car is sold:
Extra front euro bumper, matching drivers side front fender, Extra good drivers seat and both drivers and passenger side seats for parts (covers are bad), extra valve cover and throttle linkage parts, Momo Sportservice Lorinser steering wheel,, New Lemforder guide rod mounts, and Mercedes (reproduction) spring compressor.

Other work needed:

Passenger side seat needs one of the adjustment motors replaced, I have an extra that works, its just a somewhat involved job to replace it.

Radio, power antenna, a/c and heater blower (the heater works fine otherwise) all don't work.

Thanks, Hopefully someone will be interested who will appreciate it. My neighbor across the street has a running 82 380SEC he said he would take $250 for too (not registered and not drivable, there is a reason for the price).
