1985 Mercedes-Benz 300-Series coupe
Here is a great opportunity to restore one of the most iconic mid 80's diesel automobiles made. 1985 Mercedes 300cd turbo diesel with only 66k original miles. I purchased this car last spring with intentions of a full restore for my daughter. Well we came across a 1988 560sl she desired a little more so we are going to tackle that one. Here is the story. I was taking a worker of mine home one day and noticed this car on his neighbors property. Long story short, asked the couple about it and bought it a couple days later. It had been sitting for 5-6yrs. The tires were literally 1/2 buried in the dirt around the car. Had it towed to my house. Bought a battery, tires, oil change, cleaned out tank and refilled with new diesel put the key in ignition and the darn thing started right up like it never missed a beat. I have driven it about 1000 miles this summer and fall. The good66k original milesrust free, very clean body!!!interior seats in very good conditionruns and drives wellhave all original parts including the original radioall windows and sunroof workdoors lock and unlock with keyThe badneeds new paint and seals all aroundalthough engine runs great, i would have someone give it a good go through(new belts ect)really good cleaning(there were 100 wasps nests on this thing when we uncovered it)interior wood trim not good and one window switch is baddash is terrible and needs replaced(its blue)when the tow guy pulled it out he forgot to put it in neutral for some reason and now it likes to roll when its in park . when you start the car it must be in the neutral position. still drives fine and stops and will go into park but you can push it. bummer i know, but what can you do.Asking $5000 or best offer. Pretty good deal for a 30+yr old collector car with only 66k original miles. Have a clean clear title in my wifes name. Please feel free to call or txt 317 512 2870 with any questions.
