Description:

1985 Mercedes-Benz 300-Series

For Sale is a Diesel Benz with the legendary OM617 5 cylinder turbo, ften revered as the most reliable engine ever produced. This is the last year of the mechanical turbo diesel Mercedes. Many in Europe are used as taxis with over a million original miles. I got this from someone who had if for 13 years and I planned on converting to waste oil burn/veggie or just prepper vehicle- it can run with absolutely no electronics. I am moving and cannot bring this car otherwise I would just keep it. It has been under a cover so the paint all around is quite nice, howing some fading on the top surfaces. Tires and brakes are good. Just had oil change with filter, uel filter and transmission flush. The only main problems that I know of are crack on left headlight (these are the euro lights), he alternator tensioner bolt and the transmission kick down linkage- the transmission will not up-shift out of the first couple gears and I think this linkage can just be adjusted. see video of the car running, t goes up to about 30mph.

interior ok no big tears or cracks- stereo not hooked up and console parts taken apart. Blower works but ac does not. Only right rear window rolls down and up not sure why the other don't whether it is a switch but these and locks work off of vacuum so it may be something with vacuum. Some typical cracks on dash.
Good condition and low miles for a car that just turned 30- I'm sure the new owner will be happy with this project vehicle.
No rust on bottom except for a spot behind the wheel wells on the passenger side
