New to MB Cars, 1980 300 turbo diesel
My name is Mike. Im pretty new to MB Cars, but I have a good deal of experience with the trucks. Any way, my wife loves older Benz cars. She found a 1980 300 turbo deisel that she likes. It belongs to an older fellow that had it stored for the last couple years. But after he drained the fuel, it started up very easily, even in the cold (28) weather. It has 220 k miles on it and runs great. Doesnt smoke or heasitate. The body is in great shape. The interior is a litle ruff, but workable. And for $800.00 it seems like a decent vehicle. My question is what do you folks think about the car. Without putting it up on a rack, I can tell it needs shocks, also new seats would be good. And the rear deck (the area where the speakers are mounted)?? needs repair and fabric. Is there a place that I could get these things at a reasonble price, in the pacific north west? Well thanks in advance for your help, hope to chat more later.
