***THIS IS A 1984 300D GRAY MARKET EURO-SPEC MODEL.  I HAD TO LIST AS A 1980 BECAUSE EBAY DIDN'T RECOGNIZE THE VIN#. ***
This diesel Benz has just 136k miles -- that's barely broken in for these legendary 5-cylinder engines. This is the non-turbo model.  

She's all original. with all her beltline trim and chrome pieces. and very little rust.  I think I'm the 3rd owner.

Air conditioning works and has been updated to CFC-Free refrigerant. 4-speed automatic transmission. Power steering. brakes and passenger side mirror. Climate control.  Cruise control.

I have had the following maintenance items and work performed:

> new Goodyear Assurance tires (x4)
> new front brake calipers (x2) with brake fluid flush
> new engine block heater element and cord with new coolant flush
> valve adjustments
> automatic transmission tune-up (shifts great once she's warmed up)
> new rear shocks
> new rear stabilizer bar links
> new primary and secondary fuel filters
> new air filter element
> new engine mounts
> new JVC in-dash radio with Bluetooth and USB connections (original radio comes with car. too)> new dual horns

Car runs like a top and gets about 23 MPG in combined city/hwy driving. I wouldn't hesitate to drive this sedan cross-country. Completely dependable. Great car for your college kid! 
Here are the not-so-perfect aspects of the car:
> passenger side rear window crank handle cracked -- need a new one (easy fix in junkyard)> front passenger fender seems to have been replaced -- not sure when the accident occurred or how bad the accident was> typical rust in all the usual places for these 300-series cars: jack ports on rocker panels. battery tray. rear window trim. bottom of wheel arches> I stop-gapped and fixed rust in a few areas. but a pro-body man could've done better.  I used POR-15 and Bondo/fiberglass cloth at end of driver-side wheel arch beneath corner of trunk; and at end of passenger front wheel arch down by trim. Michaelangelo I ain't. > headlight aim dial doesn't work on center console> rear stereo speakers aren't connected to new radio (too much work so I didn't bother)> dash clock inoperative.  Not sure what's wrong.  It seemed to work intermittently. but then stopped. > dash has UV cracks and glovebox is misaligned due to cracked plastic interior trim plate. > Zebrano wood trim strips on dash have come off and are warped. Previous owner tried to glue them back on. but left a messy trail of attempts.  :(> hood hinges got bent a little when previous owner tried to slam the hood after it had been clicked upright into locked position.  :(  But they work fine. > underhood insulation mat missing.  Glue residue left behind.

Send me questions -- I will provide unvarnished truth.  I have clean title in hand.

Will entertain serious offers. Thx.
