MotoeXotica Classic Cars is pleased to present this amazing original condition 1975 Mercedes-Benz 300D. This Colorado Beige Benz defies its age and it shows because it was always garaged and lovingly cared for by the same family for 23 years! Mr. Mulch purchased this 300D from the original owner on May 3. 1982 with a current odometer reading of 69. 12 miles and during his ownership put another 93. 62 miles traveling around the country with his wife until his passing in 2005. During the 23 years of ownership Mr. Mulch kept a auto record diary that he recorded every detail of the care and use of this 300D. he averaged around 26 mpg during his entire ownership and recorded every single time he drove the Mercedes and where to! He also listed in great detail every time he changed the oil and valve adjustments religiously along with all other routine service work and repairs. The third owner was an elderly women who purchased the 300D from the Mulch estate in 2006 and sparingly drove the 300D on the occasion Sunday and only put just a little over 2k miles on the car during her 10 years of ownership and always stored in a garage. This 300D is a prime example of a classic benefiting from well cared for long term ownership and is a genuine time capsule from the 1970's.
In 1975. Mercedes-Benz big diesel news came in however. when Mercedes grafted another cylinder to the new diesel four to create a 3. 0-liter straight five diesel making 77 horsepower. at the time. the most power available in a diesel passenger car.
Finished in its correct shade of Colorado Beige (code 470). the paint job is beautiful and presents itself extremely well with a nice shine. Front bumper has a good fit. with rubber over riders. the rear bumper (with the same over riders) has a excellent fit and finish that shows well with only minor imperfections. All trim pieces are present and have a brilliant finish with little hazing and or dent that we could see. The weather stripping is still very pliable with no shrinkage or drying and the front and rear windshield seals are in great shape. The U. S. spec headlights. bumper mounted driving lights and taillights are in very condition with no hazing or cracks.
Inside. the rich Saddle tan (code 104) MB-Tex vinyl seats all look great with no major signs of wear visible. Excellent matching carpet throughout the interior. Overall the genuine wood trim looks great. The door panels and dashboard are matched perfectly with the exterior of the car and look fantastic. The headliner mirrors the rest of the cabin and completes the theme. The original steering wheel in great condition. air conditioning. heater. power windows. power locks. period correct Yamaha AM/FM cassette player and even an early version of aftermarket cruise control. As known with these W114/W115 Mercedes models blower motors can be very pricey to repair and this 300D 's blower motor has been tested and operates as originally designed.
This nicely presented Mercedes is equipped with the Bosch injected 3. 0L inline 5-cylinder diesel engine. 4-speed automatic transmission and independent suspension. The drivers assist features include power steering. power brakes and cruise control. 14-inch OEM steel wheels with matching Colorado Beige full Mercedes hub caps on white walled Michelins.
