1985 Mercedes-Benz 300-Series 300D

This 1985 Mercedes Benz 300D has been my daily driver since 2008. I have enjoyed these cars so much! This is one of four that my wife and I have driven and fixed up. We are selling this one because we are running out of driveway space and the Navy is relocating me to the west coast and I don't feel like paying a friend to help me drive this all the way there.One of the most well known cars in the world, he 300D was the quintessential family sedan from its inception in the late 1970's. They were over-engineered and last hundred of thousands, f not a million miles.This one is exceptional. I have done a complete work through of the entire car, hich is referenced in the picture of the Excel spreadsheet maintenance tracker. Although the mileage is at almost 229k, ny professional diesel mechanic would tell you that with all the preventative work that I've done, his car will outlast most brand new gas burning cars on showroom floors today! For a fraction of the cost of a new car, ou get to cruise around in a classic Mercedes at 26-27 miles per gallon while feeling safe in this full, eavy gauge steel body that has no rust anywhere.
Here are some highlights of maintenance items completed:
-Compression test in 2009: all 5 cylinders greater than 300psi (excellent)
-New Timing Chain and Tensioner
-New Valve Stem Seals
-New Front Crank Seal-Turbo completely rebuilt with new seals
-All gaskets and O-rings in engine compartment
-All fluids/filters replaced regularly
-All new rubber components throughout entire drivetrain
-All new joints/bearings for entire steering and suspension system
-New Paint in 2009 (shows some light sun damage now that would probably buff out)
-A/C converted to R-134 with new compressor in 2010 (needs a recharge and new drier but works)
-Rear seat reupholstered and front seats re-stuffed in 2012
-New front windshield
-New front and rear windshield seals and all 4 doors and trunk seals all new-Rebuilt front brake calipers, ew master cylinder, ew brakelines and fluid flush/bleed in September 2015-Blocked EGR valve (more power and nothing to clog your intake and turbo up, am providing the cleaned part in case you need to comply with local inspections or whatever)
There is much more that has been done but you get the idea.I have a whole binder of receipts that reflect all the work annotated in the Excel tracker picture. I can provide more info if you like but you really just need to come drive this to appreciate it. You won't regret it.
Shipping is available with your arrangements, oordination, nd payment. Meaning, 'll answer my phone and be available to hand the keys to the shipping driver when they come to pick it up. Thanks and have a good one!
