FS: 1984 Mercedes Benz 300 CD Turbo Diesel - $6400.
Found another car from a fellow member and need to sell my 1984 Mercedes Benz 300 CD Turbo Diesel; price $6400.
This 3 owner car is fully optioned, with factory heated seats, power windows, etc. Finished in astral silver with navy blue MB-Tex interior, a very elegant color combination and car gets compliments where ever we go.
I have full documentation and extensive service history for the last 20+ years. This car was primarily serviced at the MB Dealership and recently with a local European car specialist. Decent original interior with couple of small cracks in the dash and seats. Paint is original and although it looks great, there are a few spots that require attention to make this car perfect. Car was garaged but managed to pick up a few rust spots, it is after all original and unrestored. Current mileage is 207,xyz miles (or around 334,xyz kilometers)
The best thing about this car is the way it drives. It starts up right away and is a pleasure to drive. It is plenty fast and the shifts the way it is supposed to (no dropping out of the gear). This 300CD would do great as an every day driver and is one of those few classic cars you do not have to think twice about.
Mercedes only built 8007 of the 123 series coupes with a turbo diesel engine This will make it a good practical investment. If you take car of this car, you should always be able to get at least your money back and it should appreciate over time. Prime examples now sell for north of 20K.
The one noticeable upgrade to the vehicle is the more expensive and attractive European headlights which the previous owner installed shortly after purchasing the car, more recently the car has been upgraded to an HID light set so this thing can go through any dark foggy road.
Stereo system has also been professionally upgraded to an Alpine Satellite receiver w remote control with new speakers and wiring all around. The sound is wonderful.
This Benz will come with a car cover and a few extra things depending on the price.
Some of the recent work completed:
- Radiator flush / Oil / Air Filter / etc.
- Top end including a valve job.
- KROWN Rust proofed.
- Recent brakes and rotors.
- New parking and brake cables
- New fuel line
- Recent glow plugs
- Window regulators and motors all around.
- And much more.
The only two issues are that the sunroof is not operating (Motor works, so the cable must have slipped - will try to work on this if I have the time before I sell it, but no guarantees). Also, the rear quarter windows are sticky even do both the motors and the regulators were replaced (looking in to it).
Selling reluctantly and considering serious offers only to make room for another classic Benz in my life. Car can be viewed by appointment, located in Toronto. If someone from US wants it, I will assist with the shipping and inspections are welcome.
