Mercedes-Benz : 300-Series Hardtop Coupe for sale
1983 Mercedes Benz 300CD Coupe
I've always had a fondness for the early 80's Mercedes Benz 300's. Few people realize that. back then. 80% of Mercedes Benz sales were diesels. Of course. the addition of the turbocharger on these engines made their acceleration acceptable and there was no denying their durability. Most Mercedes diesel's are good for 1 million miles or so they claim.
The wagon and sedan are both also collectible. but the coupe captured the attention of the well healed and those seeking a more stylish alternative.
I own two. a black coupe and the gold coupe that you are now viewing. My shop restored both at the same time. I couldn't decide which of the two to keep. but the gold CD was finished first. Hence. it is for sale.
We started with an excellent running car. The paint was fine. but there was minor rust around the windshield and back glass. This. as you might know. is a common problem with these Coupes. The rust was properly repaired and we added new front a rear glass. (I hate old pitted windshields). This was a professional restoration – not a quicky paintjob. All of the rubber was replaced on the car. all of the glass was removed –as was the interior. The bumper ends (they always crack with age) are new. We found NOS trim where needed and installed it and also put on a new grille.
The paint is better than factory quality. It's nearly show quality – see the pics.
The interior has minor patina but it very very nice for its age. Two of the windows didn't work. so we replaced both regulators. The tires look new. so we didn't change them. The same for the brakes.
Other additions during the restoration included:
Fresh paint (OEM color)
Stripped and under coated
New trim pieces
New bumper rubber
New window and door seals
Sunroof rebuilt with new seals (works)
Rear windows rebuilt
New door handles
And the car has a nice AM/FM CD player (I don't have the original radio)
A 300CD. in the condition. is a rarity. I never look at mileage when buying a diesel Mercedes because they last forever.
Due to her age. she is sold as is - where is. No warranty is implied or inferred. We can help ship anywhere in the world at the buyer's expense. Reasonable storage after the sale is fine. Deposits are non refundable. We report non paying bidders so please bid responsibly. You will not be disappointed in this Mercedes.
