Exterior:
The exterior of this car is simply breathtaking. The original white paint is bursting with color, gloss and reflections. Nothing short of showroom concours condition. All of the glass, chrome, rubber and brite work present themselves as new. To state the obvious this car lived a pampered life. It was never taken to a car wash, never left outside exposed to uv for extended periods of time, nor was it driven in any foul weather. The body is laser straight. I highly doubt you will find a better example!
Interior:
Upon opening the door you will be amazed by the rich and deep color of the palomino interior. The seats are soft, supple and wrinkle free. The back seat was never occupied and the passenger seat was used only a hand full of times. The dashboard is pristine and shows as new. All of the wood grain, carpets, door panels,and headliner are flawless. This car was never eaten in or smoked in and the ashtrays tell the story.
Mechanical:
This car runs, drives and shifts as new. As soon as the glow plug light shuts and with a slight twist of the key this car starts instantaneously. The engine emits a perfect sound at idle and acceleration. Absolutely no smoke or issues as you would expect a car with these miles. The steering is straight and accurate. There are no squeaks, rattles or unusual noises. The brakes feel excellent. The a/c is cold and and the heat is hot. All of the functions on this car work flawlessly. You can actually feel how new this car is through the use of the gear selector, turn signals and buttons. Although this car hasn't had much use, it was taken to Ray Catena in its earlier life and a German car specialist in the later years. Despite its low miles, this car was started often to keep everything lubricated. There is a recent service on the car which includes an oil change, fuel filters and replacement of the small braided jumper hoses that run from each injector, using factory parts. Please understand that this car still has all of its factory cosmoline present in its engine bay. For those that may be unaware this is NOT dirt. There is still the factory chalking on the intake manifold.
Short Story:
This is an amazing opportunity for someone to own the best and lowest mileage w126 300 SDL in the country. This car is nothing but phenomenal inside and out. You will be absolutely amazed at the preservation of this vehicle. This is clearly a bluechip investment and will appreciate over time. I have never seen a lower mileage example of this model. The production of the '86-'87 models were the better years of the diesel engines, as opposed to the 350 engines that were known to bend rods and have head gasket issues.I also wanted to note that these photos were taken in direct sunlight, so some of the pictures of the interior coloring may appear inconsistent. Please observe the interior photos that exhibit a richer, darker color, as these best reflect the car as a whole.The car is completely original, the only addition was an alarm system which was installed when the car was newly purchased.There are over 250 detailed pictures of this car including the spotless undercarriage. We hope this makes your viewing/ decision making process easy.
I welcome any serious party near and far to come down and view the car in person. If this is your intention please do so before you bid. I will assist in shipping to ensure a safe and smooth delivery of this vehicle . We are willing to work with buyers out of the country as well.
