Description for Mercedes-Benz 300-Series 1980

Mercedes only made about 28,000 of these 5 cylinder turbodiesel SD models from '79-'81. And they were only sold in the US and Canada.This is a very nice example of a highly original SD.The 5cyl in line turbo diesel engine is the same one in most W123 300D models and is known as the "million mile" engine.
Notable flaws are shown in the picturesincluding one small surface rust spot.Interior leather is exceptional.
AC needs fluid.New tires and battery, recently serviced.
The car's lustrous finish is represented well in the pictures as well as the chrome wheels.Windows, locks, sunroof all work properly.Cold starts immediately. send me your cell phone number for a cold start video.Drives and shifts smoothly. drive and shift video also available.No rips or drips. There is a minor intermittent radiator weep that we are still trying to isolate and repair.
We have two reliable transport guys that we have used with success.One is flat rate $0.60 per mile one way for long distance deliveries.Another is an experienced no nonsense broker.
