Description for Mercedes-Benz 300-Series 1982

YOU ARE LOOKING AT A ONE OF A KIND 1982 MERCEDES BENZ 300CD. These Mercedes coupes were built between 1978-1985 and less than 2. 00 a year were produced. They all came from the factory with a 125hp five cylinder diesel motor and they are known for their durability. A Mercedes shop foreman in Florida modified this one using only original Mercedes parts. The diesel engine was replaced with a rebuilt 560cc. 300hp Mercedes V-8 motor and transmission out of a Mercedes 560SEL. The rear end is from a Mercedes 500SEL. The four wheel disc brake calipers. rotors and wheels are from a 560SEL. Front wheels are 15" and rear wheels are 16" (originals were 14"). The exhaust is Mercedes euro style with Flowmaster muffler. I recently installed Flowmaster catalytic converters legal in all 50 states. The car spent most of it's life in Florida. I purchased it out of Florida in 2008. It has not been in snow/ice since I have had it. As you can see in the photos. the body and interior are in great condition. It is mostly garage kept. It has been well cared for and it shows. A repaint using original color was done by the former owner in Florida in 2006. It shines beautifully with no cracks or bubbles. The original body is straight and solid. no dents. dings. rust or rattles. The floor boards are original and solid (see photo). The chrome is excellent original and trim is very good original The glass is excellent with original windshield (see photo decal). The headlights are euro style. The photos show two style grills. the original is horizontal chrome strips. and the modified Mercedes star is a Mercedes 560SEC after-market design. The tires are four Michelins purchased three months ago with less than 500 miles on them. Front end was aligned with tire purchase. New battery. New spark plug wires. The interior is very good original with no odors. It has never been smoked in while I have owned it. The carpets are original with no stains. The door panels are original and excellent. The wood trim is excellent to very good. The headliner is very good. It has original Becker AM/FM tape deck/radio and the electric antenna retracts. All electric windows work. The electric sunroof works. Air conditioner/heater work good. All lights work. Wipers and washers work. Horn works. It passes the yearly state of Missouri safety inspection. Speedometer and tachometer work. Odometer shows 181. 00 miles. but it has never worked since I've owned the car. These cars have plastic gears in the odometer and are known for wearing down. The man in Florida I purchased it from said he drove it about 4. 00 miles after the rebuild and I've driven it about 2. 00 miles a year since 2008. It comes with all records since I purchased it. It comes with all manuals. original tools. original jack and even original first-aid kit. A dust cover comes with the car. I drive it frequently around town and take it to some cruise events. There is never another car like it and it garners many compliments. This is the third coupe this style I have owned over the past 25 years. but the other two had the diesel motor. This is SO MUCH QUICKER than the diesels and none of the diesel odor. Acceleration at any speed will press you hard into the seat back. The car is 32 years old and not perfect. The driver's seat has three worn areas (see photo). but the rest of the upholstery is excellent/very good. The dash has three small cracks that don't show up in the photos. It has no cruise control so just use the pedal. The sun visor on the driver's side has split in vinyl. The car must be locked using key in passenger side door. I have Carfax for the car. but is shows nothing before 2001. You are encouraged to have the car inspected before purchase. The car has no warranty. Buyer is responsible for shipping. but I will assist. Deposit of $500 due within 24 hours of purchase and balance due in seven business days. I've done by best to describe the car and my experience with it.
