FS 1985 300D W123 Non-Turbo European Part-Out

Hello all,

I have an '85 European import 300D. It's the non-turbo model, manual. It's a white sedan, and has the fender mounted antenna which I have not seen before. I drove the car back 1.5 hrs after purchasing it.

The engine starts right up even in 25F weather, transmissions shifts through all gears fine. It is a manual 4 speed model and the odometer still works. 151,000 miles. The interior is cloth. Someone wired a dinger from a Japanese car into it in place of the buzzer and left the under-dash panel on. The car is complete and driveable.

I'd like to part this car out entirely, and will pull the parts myself. I do not have any set prices in mind - but I am aware of the market right now. You will notice that the car is missing the European tail-lamps and head-lamps. I have the original head-lamps but the glass is broken on the driver's side lamp.

I will consider all offers. I would like to hold on to the steel wheels and the hitch, but like I said - consider all offers. You may message me here on Benzworld, but I will give you alternate forms of contact as I am much more easily reached via my primary email and cell-phone.

Here's a link to some pictures I took the other day: imgur.com/a/O639L






Note: I have the rubber ends on the bumpers, they are in a box. The gear-shift knob is from a 190E and is not for sale nor an accurate reflection of the shift pattern. There is no radio. The climate control is a dual-zone and functions correctly. The interior is cloth.

Wow, the shift knob shows it has a 5 speed transmission. I see lots of good parts on there.

It's a 4 speed. That's mentioned at the bottom of the post. I have a 190E shift knob on there as it had a crap AutoZone job on it that was loose. It is a 4 speed manual.

I don't think it's there - but I'll check again when I get home from work this evening. I may have the triangle from another car though.

I still have the car. I drive it occasionally. The car has serious structural rust issues.

Euro bumpers are gone.

Edit: the best way to contact me is by PM here.
