FS 1985 300CD Turbodiesel 115k miles 2nd Owner Grey have Records Car in Florida

1985 300CD Very low miles 115k Miles 2nd Owner. Bought this car from 85 year old man that loved the car from the time he bought it. He took such meticulous records that I even have a notepad he gave me documenting every time he put diesel in the car and filled up the tank (you should see the price of gas in 1985!). Motor 10/10. Body 9/10 (original paint no damage at all see detail below). Interior 9/10. I have all maintenance records from when I purchased it approximately 4 years ago (almost all work done by Karl's German Auto in South Miami). Since I purchased car I have replaced battery, alternator relay, key cylinder, several of the hoses, new gaskets, and valve timing adjusted. Car has original Becker radio, no accidents, new tires and everything works including sunroof. I am having a second baby and now need a four door car (my other car is an M3 and I had to let one of the two go). Car has the classic color matched hubcaps in pictures but I have original bundt wheels that I will include. I drive this car no problem at expressway speeds and it does great. Car has original paint except for a small part over the rear wheel where I had it sanded down blended in because from years of driving some of the paint flaked a bit in one little spot. Interior is 9/10 with a very small and fine crack in dash (1/2 inch) and what looks like a small cigarette burn in the back of the car (I do not smoke). I am sad to see the car go. I have seen these with higher mileage and multiple owner go for much higher looking to get $8400. Please do not call me with ridiculous offers because I'll just keep it (hagerty insurance is only $85/year with this car after all). Car located in South Florida, Coral Gables to be exact.

Got a couple more PM's over the weekend. Sorry I was in a trial (don't hold it against me I am a lawyer). I will get back with everyone today. If you don't hear from me please PM me again. I am sorry for the delay.


As an update I took the car in for a complete inspection to repair any issues at all with the car for the new owner. I am installing a brand new radiator and replacing the coolant temperature sensor (went out 2 days ago). I am also installing new brake pads and installing new arm rest and rear seats to take care of worn armrest and rear seats. Let's just saw I am an enthusiast and want to make sure I send this car out to the next owner in the shape I would want it.

I also have the car info with many more pics on mbworld.org.
