Description for Mercedes-Benz 300-Series 1987

Take a look at this gem!
We are selling our beloved car that has treated us very well over the past 2 years. I am the 3rd owner and both myself and the previous owner are Mercedes mechanics, so the car has been kept in pristine mechanical condition. The car also runs on either veggie oil or diesel fuel with a kit that was professionally installed - $2,500 value. I will most certainly take as long as it takes to teach you how to properly use the kit and drive on veggie. As well as give you all the hints I have from driving on veggie oil in the US for over 3 years and 40,000 miles. The car (regardless of the fuel) gets 35MPG hwy! These W124 chassis with the old style Mercedes diesel will run easily 1 million miles if you treat them right.
This one was on that path. I kept her in amazing shape as I wanted to gift her to my 9 month daughter, but her mom and I are moving to Finland in the end of August so this won't happen anymore. The following work has been done on her in the past years:
- Completely new front end. New bushings for the control arms, Moog (the best you can buy) ball joints, Moog tie rods, Bilstein shocks (the best you can buy), tires, rotors, brake pads (ceramic), and bearings
- Completely updated rear end. New rotors, brake pads (ceramic), new Bilstein schocks, new coil springs
- Updated the transmission linkage as the weaker plastic parts are prone to break
- new bushings/bearings in the alternator belt
- fixed really anything that needed fixed
Overall more than $3,000 just in parts has been put into this car. The body has some dings etc, but that has never been as important to me as the suspension, engine, and transmission. Even though they have 250,000 miles on them, they are showing no signs of wear. Diesel engines are made to last, and this era especially have over built engine walls. Thankfully all of those are solid.
