Up for sale is my beautiful Mercedes 300D turbo diesel in near-perfect condition. I am only selling it to get either the 300 SEL 6. 3 or the 250 SE coupe. If you are someone who is in to vintage cars. specifically from the bullet-proof era of Mercedes-Benz. and wants to drive them daily. then this is the car for you.

I am the third owner of this masterpiece. Its engine consistently is reviewed as one of the top ten best engines of all cars in history. With proper maintenance. one can achieve 500. 00 miles without a problem. My goal since owning the vehicle has been to get it on track with its preventative maintenance schedule as set forth by Mercedes-Benz and that is the point I am at now - so it's on to my next project! And did you see that it has a manual transmission?! I put that in when the automatic transmission was slipping and needed replacement. Believe me. this must be the fastest w123 chassis available. Did you ever think that you could do a burnout in a 300D? Well. you can now! (With the acquisition of the manual transmission. however. does come the loss of a cruise control. )

The straight-lined burgundy exterior free of any dents with chrome in near-perfect condition and black rubber components glossed to a shine is the perfect compliment to the indestructible palomino MB tex interior. There is no rust and this car has always lived in California.  There are no cracks in the dashboard. the wood components are in good condition. and there is a Nardi mahogany steering wheel. The rims are powder-coated to match the factory specifications. The original Becker radio is present and working like new. It is really a piece of artwork. I have the original tool belt as well as the original manual. including the blue Operation of Automatic Climate Control and orange Cruise Control guideline tags that would have been hung from the rear view mirror upon purchase.

As mentioned. the vehicle adheres to the preventative maintenance schedule put out by Mercedes-Benz. It has taken me plenty of hours and hard work. but now it is all for your buying pleasure. I have the maintenance schedule in PDF form attached as pictures to this listing (three pages). The oil has been changed every 3. 00 to 4. 00 miles. The car was in an accident with the previous owner and this explains the salvage title. I had no problems with the DMV or with my insurance company when I purchased the car. I asked the DMV about removing the salvage title and they said that a vehicle can never go off of a salvage title once it is on.
