1979 Mercedes-Benz 300-Series 300d euro

56k original miles.

Euro model ; Imported from the German domestic market.

This car comes with the legendary OM617 diesel engine with factory 4-speed manual ! Engine is very smooth and starts up every time, even in cold.

New brakes lines front & rear.

It also has new front & rear shocks. Dashboard has no cracks, German radio works, sunroof does not leak. Manual windows & HVAC -- this is a truly FULL mechanical W123!

What it needs:

Tires. They are old, little bit cracked. Please don't drive long distances with these.

A/C charge, it does not blow cold

The keys will not lock/open driver door (perhaps lock cylinder jammed?).

Instrument cluster lighting does not work

TLC - This is a low mileage car approaching 40 years of age. Car isn't "show room fresh" by any means as it has done a lot of sitting. Paint is ok, has been resprayed at some point and has fading.

I am more than happy to entertain viewings and test drives, just inquire. Any other Questions? Just ask.

International purchases are okay -- I have shipped a car to Europe in the past and it went extremely smoothly.
