Technical specifications, photos and description:
Up for sale is my 1987 Mercedes 300D. This is one of the cleanest and most mechanically sound 87 300Ds you will find in the northern states. Would make for a perfect WVO conversion.
This car has seen very little snow in its entire life. I bought it in August 2012 after two Mercedes Diesel lovers owned it for a total of three years. The first 22 years of its life were with an elderly woman in Florida.
Many repairs have been done since it was brought up from Florida. Listed below. I have receipts for many of them and full vehicle history reports.
The 300D has mainly been used around town for the last year. getting about 25mpg.
The suspension is very tight and as you will see in the list below. it is pretty much all new. It needs at least a couple new tires. but this sale will come with three tires (I just put one on after a flat. The flat could be patched if wanted. ) The previous owner put a set of four tires on matching Benz wheels. Those will be included.
The transmission has good shift points. and pulls stongly. but shifts too firmly at times. The hvac system works very well. the a/c will freeze you out. and the heater works well. All buttons work correctly moving the air to where it is supposed to be.
Even the rear headrest still flips down. While this car is an exceptionally clean driver. she still has some flaws. and this auction is as-is only. There will be no refunds or anything of that nature. I prefer that anyone bidding on the car actually come out to take a look at it. I am fully disclosing any issues this car has. whether they are big or small that I know of; however it is 25 years old and I cannot make any guarantees.
Please ask any question you have.
