1984 Mercedes-Benz 300-Series

1984 Mercedes 300D

Excellent driver in nice condition! I picked this up as a driver to keep mileage off of my truck, but I got a great deal on something newer and can’t keep both.

The good

- Starts, runs very strong, and shifts as it should

- Valves adjusted within the last 2000 miles

- Vacuum system works as it should (yes, it shuts off with the key)

- Rebuilt power steering pump

- EGR delete

- Fuel filters replaced within the last 2000 miles (including the in-tank filter)

- Good tires (snow tires on the rear) and brakes, all glass is good

- Interior is in nice shape and complete with only minimal wear, fading, and dash cracks. No sagging springs in the driver's seat!

- Comes with valve adjustment wrenches and the hard to find technical manual along with the Haynes manual

- Overall clean body and decent paint

- Block heater functions - starts perfectly in the cold

- Moonroof works fine

The not so good

- Some rust, mainly in the rear quarters and wheel arches (see pics)

- Marks a spot when parked for a bit

- Air cleaner housing rattles at idle because the mount has started to fail (very common issue)

- Drivers side rear window is inoperative

- A previous owner plasti-dipped the lower portion of the body


This is a great driver with decent miles and recent maintenance work. It's not perfect but runs great and looks nice. Great extra car or candidate for a waste vegetable oil conversion! Since I'm usually asked, I have no reason to believe that it would not make a drive home.
