....ABOUT THE CAR:
ITS A VERY NICE and WELL CARED FOR 1985 MERCEDES 300SD TURBO DIESEL. And its NOT just a basic run of the mill 300SD..... This one has been professionally modified and set up to use either regular DIESEL FUEL from a gas station, BUT TO ALSO run off of BIO diesel (VEGETABLE OIL)...which is VERY EASY TO GET (collect) from restaurants for FREE!!!!Yes, THIS ONE HAS a HIGH END BIO DIESEL operating system with a touch button SWITCHING SYSTEM already installed and FULLY OPERATIONAL to let you drive on YOUR CHOICE of DIESEL or BIO DIESEL! Everything is already installed and RUNS WELL!!! !..... SO < YES... you can drive on DIESEL OR vegetable oil -----EITHER ONE!
PLUS!!!>>>>>Plus i am including ALL the accessories that i have bought for this car as well (about an additional $2k value ALL FOR FREE!)This RARE MERCEDES 300SD turbo diesel model is a VERY desired and sought after car and is highly desired by enthusiasts of the Mercedes brand. In Fact, this model is considered by MANY Benz enthusiasts and Car Gurus to be ONE OF (if not THE BEST) engines that Mercedes has ever made! Its often described as being Bulletproof and Indestructible. There are Endless stories of these cars heading well over 400, 50, and 600k miles, They just DONT make them like this ANYMORE!!! Thats why they are becoming quite rare and in such demand! IN MY OPINION THIS ONE IS MUCH BETTER THAN A DIESEL ONLY MODEL***FULLY modified TO RUN ON YOUR CHOICE OF EITHER regular DIESEL fue, or BIO-DIESEL (and its TOUCH BUTTON system, so you can SWITCH to bio diesel (VEGETABLE OIL) over from diesel at the touch of a button (located on the control panel)
This car is TRULY A GREAT CLASSIC MERCEDES with LOTS OF LIFE LEFT IN HER! TONS OF NEW PARTS OVER THE YEARS, and Always WELL CARED FOR!It may be 31 years old, but its still solid as a rock and has proven itself to be a VERY reliable daily driver and its NO DOUBT still an impressive and stylish looking car with TONS OF CHROME and Nice ORIGINAL paint! THE GOLD STILL SHIMMERS and the chrome still looks amazing! This car still gets noticed, and is VERY INEXPENSIVE to maintain and keep on the road because (used) parts are plentiful and easy to find, and despite it being a CLASSIC MERCEDES, I have ALWAYS found the parts for these models to be VERY reasonable!!!
* TONS OF PARTS have been replaced on her over the years as well! Its BEEN WELL MAINTAINED and has proven to be EXTREMELY RELIABLE and in my opinion, with simple and basic maintenance it should easily counted on as a GREAT DAILY DRIVER!!!
* This S-Class has the famous 5 cyl turbo diesel that have been known to be reliable and built to last. The car starts up every time, and IMO it runs and drives damn good. She amazingly still gets about 28 mpg on the highway. And like i stated, These cars are quite simple to work on with no complex computers or complex emissions controls, etc. and for the most part, pretty basic electronics, so fixing them is usually inexpensive, and especially so if you are doing maintenance and service yourself!
REMEMBER: this great car will also come with LOTS OF EXTRA GOODIES for FREE!The Free items are mostly BIO DIESEL RELATED ITEMS AND ALL ARE INCLUDED (for free) to my winning bidder/or buyer (if they should want these items, WHICH THEY BLOODY WELL SHOULD as its about $1,100 worth of good stuff that you will want if you are planning on driving the car on bio diesel.
Specifically speaking i am including FOR FREE with this sale ALL of the Pumping and Extracting equipment with filter, containers, pump, etc.Extra clamps, Mercedes filters, etc. BBDS, More than is even needed etc. This car is IDEAL for a fellow enthusiast and IMO should make a Very economical and FUN car to drive for many years to come. * Great on gas It gets damn near 30 MPG on the highway and it doesnt matter if you are driving on DIESEL or VEGETABLE OIL, The mileage is about the same = Great gas mileage either way!
I currently have an almost Full tank of REGULAR DIESEL in it, and the bio diesel tank is also near FULL of VEGETABLE OIL FUEL as well. so shes ready to get on the road and go anywhere right now!
The leather interior in TAN and the back seats and the rear carpets still look very good too! (FOR A 31 year old car, youd be hard pressed to find much nicer! SEE PICS!)
* Tires are in good shape with lots of tread on them. A/C works and the compressor turns on and the system works. The air is still cool, but could probably use a small recharge of freon, Like i said, it does still blow and blows coolBrakes work fine. Lights all work.Overall Great classic that runs and drives well and is CONVERTED which can and will save you TONS of gas (all while you are saving the world! ha ha )These cars were built like a German tank, and made to last! the doors still make the sound of a tightly enclosed cabin and the door seals and sunroof seals do not leak at all!!! Its a true classic and its been well cared for and the pics will show you that.
MORE STUFF worth noting:
The sunroof works perfectly and the motor assembly in the sunroof was replaced at a cost of nearly $350 ...now it works GREAT (Smooth like new)All the windows currently are working too, but sometimes they have to be raised manually (help them up) due to them slipping occasionally off the track, but yes they do all work! Also BOTH MIRRORS WORK TOO!The Leather is ALL ORIGINAL and still looks good all around! a few minor tears in the driver seat and pas seat, but nothing too bad and overall the interior is damn good for a 31 year old Classic Benz!see photos.The Original Turbo functions well and gives the car Wonderful efficiancy! (not so much speed! These 300 SD turbo engines are designed for heavy use and to be a workhorse NOT A RACE CAR! Anyone who knows these cars knows that! And while this car definitely wont win you many races, you can always count on her to get you there and in classic regal MERCEDES Luxury style!
* LIGHT, TURN SIGNALS, TAIL LIGHTS WORK and are in good / functional shape
* IMO- all doors and door panels look GREAT too ! see pics!
*ALL POWER LOCKS + TRUNK LOCK WORK! (were fixed at a cost of $366 last year!) have receipt!
*Radiator and cooling system including all hoses are also all GOOD, no leaking, or issues etc. and function GREAT!'
*NO OVERHEAT ISSUES AT ALL! THIS CAR NEVER EVER RUNS HOT, NOT EVEN out here in the SCORCHING LAS VEGAS SUMMER SUN!
ABOUT THE BODY:The Body is overall quite nice with only a few (Minor) rust spots worth a mention. Not bad at all for this age of a car! i have posted lots of pics, and for serious buyers i have no problem sending you more.Overall body and paint are good ESPECIALLY considering they are all original! ALL CHROME TRIM STILL HOLDS UP WELL AND LOOKS BRIGHT AND SHINY AND CERTAINLY DOESNT SHOW ITS AGE AT ALL! - SEE THE PICS! Dont take my work for it, let the pics speak for themselves! the nice condition all around should be quite clear!
*CHROME bumpers and ALL THE CHROME TRIM PIECES are in simply beautiful condition too with no pittin, breakage, or damage anywhere worth mentioning at all. The Tires are all good with decent tread all around and the CHROME MERCEDES WHEELS still look nice and still shine BRIGHT! see the pics!!!You wont find one any nicer for anywhere near this price without looking for MONTHS!This one is CLEAN with a CLEAN LEATHER INTERIOR, Decent ORIG GOLD PAINT, Starts, runs and drives well and has already been FULLY CONVERTED to operate on EITHER DIESEL FUEL, or BIO DIESEL (Used VEGETABLE OIL) so you can operate it for PEANUTS! ALSO: The suspension is very good and tight on the car!
*The Shocks are ( all 4) new and were just replaced and were just installed (4 months ago) HIGH END shocks all the way around too which also was quite costly! ($522)These cars LOVE the highway and make Superb commuters for short to LONG commutes daily!Once your out on the road, It Just BEGS to be driven!!! and to drive it is to love it!
Odometer still works! the Automatic transmission shifts well in all gears including reverse too, which is a common issue that these cars sometimes have, but not this one! She shifts smoothly and on time everytime!
Please keep in mind that this is NOT A NEW CAR! its 31 years old ! that being said, its IMO in overall VERY NICE SHAPE and i bet It will impress most how well it looks, runs and drives in person,Especially for a 31 year old PAMPERED (converted) CLASSIC BENZ!
