1984 Mercedes-Benz 300-Series

The Good: Great daily driver. Body is straight. Engine and transmission are in great condition. Suspension still has that classic Mercedes feel. Cruises at 75 MPH easily. Turbo still works great. The leather seats and headliner are immaculate. I've had several of these cars and have never seen the seats or headliner in such good condition. Windhsield fluid pump works. Moonroof works. Radio works. Tags and registration are current. Title in hand. Needs no smog in CA due to being diesel. 32 mpg.
Recent work done: Axle shaft. Front brake job. Front End suspension rebuilt, tire alignment. Water Pump, thermostat, new coolant, Fan Belts, Air filter. Glow plugs and tires recently replaced. New fuel filter and hoses.
The not so good (but not so bad):Clear coat is gone on most of the paint, so has that faded look. One of the rear windows works sporadically. The vacuum system running the locking system was disconnected, had a leak, and I didn't feel like dealing with it. I just use the key and open up the drivers side door and open other door locks manually. Odometer stopped at 242K. Will need an ignition lock tumbler ($350 or so). The tumbler started to go, so I siliconed the key to the ignition so I wouldn't take it out by accident. Because if the the tumbler fails without the key in it, it will cost twice the amount to fix as opposed to having it in the ignition. I drove it everyday like this and just covered the ignition when I left the car. (Too lazy to get it fixed.) A/C not working.
