Description for Mercedes-Benz 300-Series 1981

HERE'S A REALLY NICE W126 MERCEDES BENZ TURBO DIESELWITH LOW MILES. IT RUNS AND DRIVES JUST FINE WITH GOOD POWER AND PRETTY MUCH NO BLOW BY FROM THE 5 CYLINDER ENGINE. THE CAR JUST HAD THE VALVES SET. A DIESEL PURGE. OIL CHANGE. EW FUEL FILTERS AND IS READY TO GO. THE ENGINE STARTS IMMEDIATELY FROM COLD. DOES NOT SHAKE ANDHAS GOOD POWER. IT IS GETTING VERY DIFFICULT TO FIND AN OM617 TURBO DIESELWITH UNDER 200. 00 MILES ON IT BUT I CAN TELL YOU EVEN THE ONES WITH 400. 00MILES CAN RUN WELL IF THEY ARE PROPERLY MAINTAINED. NEW AIR FILTER CANISTER RUBBER MOUNTS WERE JUST INSTALLEDALONG WITH EXHAUST RUBBER DONUTS. THIS CAR WAS A SOUTHERN CARFOR MANY YEARS AND HAS SPENT SUMMERS IN NEW ENGLAND AND HAS NOTDRIVEN DURING WINTER MONTHS. IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS ABOUT THE CAR PLEASE FEEL FREE TO EMAIL ME. THE EXTERIOR IS A VERY LIGHT GRAY COLOR WHICH MATCHES WELL WITHTHE DARK BLUE INTERIOR. IT IS AN UNUSUAL COLOR COMBINATION. THE CARS SHOCKS ARE 1 YEAR OLD AND ARE VERY FIRM. MERCEDES SUSPENSIONS ARE SUPPOSED TO BE SOMEWHAT FIRM & THISCAR IS NO EXCEPTION. SHE DRIVES AND HANDLES NICELY WITH NO SHAKESRATTLES OR NOISES FROM THE SUSPENSION. THE TRANSMISSION SHIFTS SMOOTHLY AND NORMALLY UP AND DOWN WITH NOSLOPPINESS IN THE TRANSMISSION GEARS OR LINKAGE. THE STEERING IS VERY TIGHT. THE STEERING KNUCKLE WAS REPLACEDAPROX. 1 YEAR AGO TO ELIMINATE SLIGHT WANDERING AT HIGHWAY SPEEDSAND THE CAR DRIVES AS STRAIGHT AS AN ARROW. THE BRAKES STOP THE CAR EFFECTIVELY AND WITH NO SQUEAKS ORPULLING TO THE SIDE. SHE STOPS QUICKLY AND IN A STRAIGHT LINE. THE DRIVE TRAIN DOES NOT LEAK. THE UNDERCARRIAGE IS CLEAN &RUST FREE. OVERALL THIS IS A WELL KEPT CAR WITH VERY STRAIGHTBODY PANELS AND NO SIGNS OF COLLISION. THE SEATS AND CARPETING ARE ALSO IN VERY GOOD CONDITIONWITH NO DAMAGE OR TEARS. THE DOOR PANELS AS SHOWN INPHOTOS ARE IN GOOD CONDITION AS WELL. AT IDLE THE OIL PRESSURE IS CONSTANTLY SHOWING 30 LBS PRESSUREAND THE GAUGE NEVER CHANGES. THIS ENGINE HAS BEEN WELL MAINTAINED. HE MOST RECENT SERVICE INCLUDED HAVING THE VALVES SET THIS MONTH. THE CAR HAS BEEN OWNED BY A MERCEDES DIESEL FANATICWHO MAINTAINED HER DRIVE TRAIN RELIGIOUSLY. I ENCOURAGE QUESTIONS. PLEASE CONTACT ME WITH ANY YOU HAVE.
