1985 Mercedes-Benz 300D Turbo Diesel LOW ORIGINAL MILES, only 68,600!!!!!Yes, 68,600 original miles!!!!!!
This was my aunts car.My aunt is 87 years old. She bought it BRAND NEW and itâ€™s been garage kept itâ€™s whole life!!!
In 2016, she stopped driving it and stored it in her garage for about a year or so, I got it after that, I drove it from her house in Pennsylvania and drove it to my house in Maryland, (which is almost 200 miles).
This Mercedes W123is offered with the original ownerâ€™s manual, original bill of sale, service/repair receipts/factory service records dating back to new! My aunt kept most ofher service receipts. I will give that all to you when it sells.
This isone of the finest examples of an all original unmolested completely bone stock 300D. All numbers matching as well.
LOW MILE cars like this are harder and harder to come by in this original condition/original paint! especially with less than 100,000 miles!
This was the last year of the W123. ---Super Rare Diamond Blue Really nice body/paint condition- no rust. With a good buffing & polishing & waxing the original paint would look even better!!
No ACCIDENTS EVER, no stories, there is a small/minor ding on the trunk lid, hardly noticeable
The interior is in unbelievable/excellent condition! The seats are in near perfect
condition,no rips, no tears, no stains, no fading, you will be impressed! My 87-year-old aunt had seat covers on the front seats,which kept the seats looking great!!!! She had no children,so the back seat was hardly used. The carpets are even in excellent condition too!
All the rubber/weather-stripping also in great shape, not cracked up at all. Undercarriage is nice too,
This would make an AMAZING addition to your collection or simply an amazing daily driver. Either way, the car is a total HEAD TURNER!
Â· Radio even works
Â· Speedometer & odometer works
Â· Gas gauge works
Â· Other gauges work
Â· The sunroof even works, my aunt probably opened it once or twice in 33 years. I opened it once, and itâ€™s slow as a turtle, lol... probably due to never being used! Probably could use some good lubrication.
Recent things done:
Â· New fuel filters
Â· Brake system was flushed
Things to do:
The blower motor for the heater, etc... possibly needs to be replaced/fixed.Iâ€™m not sure if itsneeds a new blower motor or fuse or whatever. It could be something simple.
- If you're not familiar with these cars, they are built like tanks. The engine that powers this car is the Mercedes-Benz OM617, 5-cylinder diesel engine. These engines are known for insanely long lifespans.
I've talked a lot of folks who own these Diesels and been toldthey go up to and over500,000 miles, and their cars were still running strong. A well-maintained Mercedes diesel engine will run for 500,000 miles and longer.
For these engines, 68,600 miles is nothing.
The point is, you can pay a few bucks for this car now, and it will still be running strong 30 years later, no joke. (Just make sure you change the oil regularly, and don't forget to change the transmission fluid occasionally.)
Anyway, it looks good; it drives well. It's solid and reliable. I drove it from my auntâ€™s house over a year ago to my houseand would have no problem driving again or taking it on a longer trip. It's a good car. If you are looking for a car to last the ages, this is a good buy. You can drive it as is, or you can put a little work into it to get it even better.
I'm selling it because Ihave too many cars and this deserves to go to someone who will appreciate it and enjoy itâ€¦.I personally only driven it less than 10 times, since Iâ€™ve had itâ€¦â€¦and it needs to go to someone who will drive it instead of letting it sit.
Make it a daily driver or add it to your collection!
Garaged and Meticulously Maintained throughout its life has this 300D running well...My aunt took really good care of it and did all of the regular/routine maintenance on itâ€¦â€¦ It starts immediately, has excellent power, and shifts smooth timely and proper. The steering is tight, and the suspension is controlled and supple.
The car brakes well without pulling or pulsations.
All options work including all windows, sunroof, power antenna, and door locks.
All of glass is in great shape too, no cracks, chips.
Tires have good tread.
