1982 Mercedes-Benz 300-Series

This is a premo project car! Car presently has no engine, but included in sale is a new factory engine and good 4-spd manual transmission and 99% of the parts to do installation. Also included are over a dozen other parts to make car near perfect.
Presently car has an empty engine compartment--the engine was removed 20 years ago for a rebuild and lost. The car has been stored inside for the last 20 years. Outside paint is a very desirable lite yellow.
In Oregon no salt was used on roads. I did a professional underside inspection and car is RUST-FREE except for minor rust on bottom of driver's door and one tiny rust spot about 3/4 inch in dia located next to amber lite on rite front fender, and it is on the surface. This is the nicest wagon I have ever had (I have had over 30 of them). Only two small dents in hood, and a few 12" scraps in the area just forward of rear rubber bumper end on driver's side. NO flaking clear coat. An exceptionally clean car! Has a set of nice Bundt alloys with brand NEW tires with less than 20 miles--they all still have the little mold tits on tread surfaces.
Included in sale is a naturally aspirated 300D engine and all new attachments!--See fotos of engine with copper colored paint. The engine was purchased from the Portland MB dealer and has less than 10,000 miles! (Sedan was totaled--it was hit hard in the side.) Everything on the engine is new--it is a pretty sight! NEW: new vacuum pump, new alternator, new water pump, new injection pump, new starter, new power steering pump, new filter housings, new cooling fan assembly, new rubber engine mounts, etc. Also included are all the new water hoses and clamps in engine compartment (I will not cut them), the new radiator, new oil cooler and its hoses. Engine is still in the car so you can hear it run. It starts rite up, and does NOT smoke, not even a tiny amount! Original cost over $10,000. Included is my removal of engine and its related components. Engine comes with my 1 year guarantee.
Also included is an inspected and guaranteed good used 4 spd manual transmission and all related components from a 240D 123 sedan. Includes all these good used items: transmission, bell housing, flywheel clutch assembly, clutch fork, clutch/brake pedal assembly, floor shifter/rods assembly with good shifter handle, neutral safty/backup switch with all related items including wiring, speedo cable, hard fluid line, firewall/floor grommets, and all related nuts, bolts, washers, and related fasteners. These used components are included for reference but need to be replaced with new: throw out bearing, clutch master cylinder, the slave cylinder, the flex hose, and transmission rubber mount. I will supply my guess at the proper length of front section of driveshaft--let me know if a different length and I will inspect my driveshaft pile...if I have it will be delivered to you at no charge. These items are not included and need to be supplied new: pilot bearing and retainer.
OR a good turbo automatic transmission, which is still in the car.
The most desirable tan Interior is very nice--no rips or holes in any seats. Dash pad is near perfect with only one small crack just in front of binnacle--telling me that this car has be garaged most of its life. Odometer shows 181,150 miles. The headliner is in great shape. Carpets are original and all are nice--tho one needs cleaning. Has the preferred manual sun roof, electric windows, and AC. The left rear electric window regulator is not functioning, but I am including a good one.
Also included in sale: AC condenser and hoses, header pipe, all 3 window wipers, underdash panels, near new spare tire mounted on a nice Bundt alloy, jack, lug wrench, owner's manual package (for a 300D sedan), keys, and clear & clean new title.
Included in sale is the removal of the new 300D engine and all related items from the copper-colored smashed car and removal of all 4-spd manual transmission parts from the donor car. For out of state buyers, for an additional $300 I will package/box engine/transmission/items all properly and pack/strap/bolt into a strong plywood crate on a pallet. Buyer pays all shipping costs. I will manually assist with loading car and crate. International buyers, please contact me with your country code for estimated shipping cost.
Note that if I do not sell in next week, I will do complete installations and car will absolutely roadworthy for $10,000.
