Description for Mercedes-Benz 300-Series 1980

This is an original 100% rust freeCalifornia1980 Mercedes Benz 300 SD Turbo Diesel with 232,542 original miles

These are the last of the handmade Mercedes Benz and the final year of production for the w-116 body.

The 3.0 liter turbo charged inline 5 cylinder diesel engine starts right up and runs extremely well! The idle is smooth. There are no apparent leaks, smoke, overheating or any unusualnoises. The entire drive trainis solid and tight.The automatic transmission shifts properly into all gears.The brakes, steering and suspension are in good working order.The air conditioning, vacuum operated locks, power windows (drivers window goes up and down the others will most likely need regulators-passenger window goes down but needs aid going up) and the power antenna (stays up) will need service.

The current odometer reading is 136,898 miles....which is a fraction of what these engines are capable of doing. They are notoriousfor going up to 1,000,000 miles without a singlerebuild.

Cosmetically this 300 SD looks great! The structural integrity is superb and the frame is rock solid. The body and chassis, floors and wheels wells are 100% rust free, the beauty of an original California car. There is no a singleblister or bubble anywhere whatsoever. The paint finish has a glossy finish.

The overall appearance of this 300 SD gets high marks for having an honest, original and authentic look.

-All four tires have decent tread on them

-Nice chrome trim moldings, lights lenses and bumpers

The interior is in good original condition.

-Nice seating surfaces, carpets, headliner and door panels. The dash has some misc imperfections. This car also feature a fully functioning power sunroof.

This is a timeless classic that will only continue to increasein value. We hope the next owner/operatorappreciated it as much as we do.
