Description for Mercedes-Benz S-Class 1981

HERE'S A REALLY NICE W126 MERCEDES BENZ TURBO DIESELWITH LOW MILES THAT RUNS AND DRIVES JUST FINE WITH GOOD POWERAND 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 SHE IS READY TO GO. THE ENGINE STARTS IMMEDIATELY FROM COLD. DOES NOT SHAKE ANDHAS GOOD POWER. IT IS GETTING VERY DIFFICULT TO FIND AN OM617TURBO DIESEL WITH UNDER 200. 00 MILES ON IT BUT I CAN TELL YOU EVENTHE ONES WITH 400. 00 MILES CAN RUN WELL IF THEY ARE PROPERLY MAINTAINED. I HAD AN 84 WITH 464000 MILES AND THAT CAR RAN AND DROVE LIKE IT HAD HALFTHOSE MILES ON THE ENGINE. 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 AND THE INTERIOR IS DARK BLUE. IT IS AN UNUSUAL COLOR COMBINATION THAT SUITS THE CAR. 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 NOSHAKES RATTLES OR NOISES FROM THE SUSPENSION. THE TRANSMISSION SHIFTS SMOOTHLY AND NORMALLY UP AND DOWNWITH NO SLOPPINESS 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. 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 DRIVETRAIN RELIGIOUSLY. I ENCOURAGE QUESTIONS.
