FS:1987 Mercedes 300D RESTORATION in progress.

I bought this car on a auction it has been hit in the rear right quarter. Will be rebuilt title. I thought to my self If I am to fix this car I might as well do it right. Whole exterior is getting redone. Car runs very good and has low miles only 120K so I figured Its worth bringing this baby to Excelent condition. If someone is interested in a very very good condition 300D let me know. This car will be ready for a test drive soon I am anticipating that the car should sell for around 5.5K when restored. Location New Britain CT Call 860 331 seven 7 61

Here is another one. If you are going to buy a Older Benz why not buy it from someone who knows a thing or two about them ?
