I am close to buying this '76 300D.
Will be bringing it home for a better look and make sure its mechanically ok before I buy it.
It is sitting in a farm field and since it is still winter here, I want to pull it into my garage and thaw it out have a really good look and make sure it runs and drives ok.
I dont have any history on this car as I am getting it from a friend who basically inherited it along with 40 other cars (really long story)
As you can see it has California plates with the last date of Mar 2008.
My friend says it runs (he is a diesel mechanic) but I have not seen it run yet.
It has newer paint and the body seems to be rust free and in good condition (again I want a better look)
The interior is ok but not really great..theres a few things that make me go "hmmm"
So here are some pics, I have several more, but these should give you an idea of the cars condition.
Looking for opinions on it and if you see anything really scarey.
My friend said $1000 ...good price to start at
Sunroof..what you cant see is the windshield has a crack in it
The drivers seat needs some attention..
Floor boards look good
It has a nice dashboard cover
covering this not so nice dashboard
A couple of other "hmmm" things..
A fuel gauge and a toggle switch where the ashtray is supposed to be...and an aftermarket stereo
Some cracked plastic, another small odd toggle switch and Im not sure what that round thing is in the middle
A broken light and a stained headliner (no rips or tears though)
A couple of engine compartment pictures
For some reason there is no belt on it...hmmm
I have several more pictures, if anyone want to see something I may have a pic of it..I can also go take more pics if I need to
So, any opinions/comments/questions would be appreciated.
If it runs ok and I dont find anything horribly wrong with it, I think it will be staying in my garage
