FS:1980 Mercedes L-1116 Truck

1980 Mercedes Benz L-1116
Truck was running when parked about a year and half ago (should only need a battery and fuel system flushed and bled). I have owned the truck 3 years. The OM352A ran good when it was last running. The truck was originally used at a lumber shop here in TN and then sold to a farmer who used it once a year to move hay. I bought the truck with the intention of turning it into a flat bed wrecker but do not have the time to deal with it anymore. The truck does have rust I do not know the extent of the cab rust but you can see it throughout the pictures. Below is a list of stuff I know that the truck needs. I will be glad to answer as many questions as I can about the truck, the truck is located an hour from me so I will not be able to supply anymore photos. This is the second L-1116 I have owned and they are extremely hard to find in the US at this point. I have a CLEAR TN title in my name. The hubometer and the odometer are about 10,000 miles off so I listed the milage at the odometer milage but it has between 140,000 and 150,000 miles. The air over hydraulic brakes worked flawlessly until the reservoir cracked so that will need to be replaced to get it up on the road again.

Truck Notes:
Engine- Mercedes OM352A
Transmission / Rear End- 5 Speed / Single Speed Rear End
Motor has not been started in 1 1/2 years
Will need Batteries and Ground Replaced
Will need Fuel System Flushed and Bled
Brake reservoir is cracked and will need to be replaced

Truck Dimensions:
Wheel Base- 190 inches
Overall Length- 331 inches
Overall Width- 94 inches
Total Bed Length- 240 inches

Truck is sold in as is condition with a Clear TN title. You can view / bid on the truck on ebay or make me an offer. The truck is located in Lynchburg, TN and will need to be picked up and or viewed there.
$2000.00 obo

Congrats. Worth saving.

Reminds me of the old buses I grew up with in the old country. Those diesels could run a million miles without blinking...
