1987 Mercedes-Benz 300-Series1987 Mercedes Benz 300SDL - The legendary W126 - True Long Wheelbase - Turbo Diesel
- 1 Owner from new - Purchased new in 1987 from Loeber Motors in Chicago Illinois, ordered in 702 Smoke Silver Metallic with 77 Burgundy Leather interior and sliding electric sunroof. The pinstripe is high quality 3M Vinyl and can be removed very easily if the buyer desires
It comes with all original owners manuals, original window sticker + order sheet, all records.
This vehicle has been dealer serviced its entire life with a mix of services done by an Independent Mercedes certified garage .Over $12,000 in service records, oil changed yearly regardless of miles, Michelin MXV4 tires with 95% tread. In the past 10,000 miles it has had control arms, shocks, brakes and multiple other bushings replaced as well as almost 8 oil changes!
The A/C has beenconvertedby MB to R134A. It blows extremely cold, and thevacuum system works as it should, diverting air from floor, to dash, to compartment as it did from the factory.
The body is in extremely goodcondition, as well as the interior. It is striking how preserved this car is. The 300SDL at some point received an extremely high quality, glass out, trim off, doors offrepaint in its original Mercedes 702 Smoke SilverMetallic. The chrome is in excellent condition, as well as all trim and seals. No dry rotting, or cracking.
The interior is immaculate showing almost 0 wear. All of the glass is perfect, and all original with VIN numbers stamped, the leather is supple and clean with no cracking, the wood holds perfect gloss with no fading or cracking. The original books andmanuals are in the glove box, as well as theoriginal medical kit in the rear compartment.
It drives extremely well, its incredible to get in something 30 years old and feel how tight and well built they used to make them. It tracks straights, it is smooth over bumpers, brakes are straight and strong and the tires are quiet.
The carfax is clean and shows no accidents, based on my inspection as well as my mechanics it has always been an accident and rust free vehicle
All electronics work as they should-Power seats-Windows-Cruise control-Sunroof-All backlights and lights-Mirror adjust-Down to the headlight mounted wipers
This Monday I dropped it off at German Auto Repair in Charleston and requested the owner perform an oil changeand full mechanical inspection and to replace any items that warranted: he found nothing and made very positive remarks.
Cons:-Small touchup on front left of bumper (shown in photos).-Antenna istemperamental, I will be happy to order areplacement
An almost identical, same color combination 300SDL of this caliber sold oneBay recently with a few differences:-It was a 1986, not a 1987 like mine-It had 70,418 miles, not 62,XXX miles like mine-It was not a 1 owner vehicle and did not have the documentation or service records like mine-My reserve is set much lower than this above mentioned vehicle sold for ($15,900 + dealer fees)
I have a flickr album full ofadditional photos and I am happy to provide videos or further photos if you request them -
