Description for Mercedes-Benz 300-Series 1983

You are looking at my pride and joy. A 1983 Mercedes-Benz 300D Turbo Diesel. This car was supposed to be restored over the coming months. but unexpected bills have put me in an emergency situation needing to sell it. The Good: - Runs great. - Drives well. - Was my daily driver until February when I bought a new car. I regularly drove hundreds of miles in a week with no problems. - Tires are still in pretty good shape. - 3/4 of the power windows work. - The power sunroof works. - 3/4 of the vacuum door locks work. - It does not nor has it ever (in my ownership) been run hot. - Interior is in better shape than most W123s its age. The Bad: - 1/4 of the vacuum door locks don't work (common for old Mercedes). - 1/4 of the power windows don't work (common for old Mercedes). - The vacuum cruise control doesn't work (common for old Mercedes). - The automated climate control doesn't work except for full heat defrost (common for old Mercedes). - The rear of the car sags a little (common for old Mercedes). - There is a bad transmission flare when shifting from 2-3 (common for old Mercedes). - It leaks oil (common for old Mercedes). - The neutral safety switch sometimes acts up. so I added a bypass switch in the glovebox. - No radio. - It's pretty cold-natured if the temperature is below 20*F. It usually has to be jumped off if it's below 15*F. - Dings. trim missing in places. dents. etc. Usual old car stuff. - Salvage title with "REBUILT" stamp. meaning the car was written off but re-certified for road use. This car has surprised me to no end. I bought it as a restoration project. and my primary vehicle blew up. forcing me to drive this car daily for over a year without any major issues. It pains me terribly to sell it. but I need to take care of my family more than I need a project. I hope you love it as much as I do. EDIT: I have lowered the Buy It Now price from $1. 50. 00 to $1. 00. 00 and have replaced the battery because I need to sell quickly. Don't pass this one up! Make me an offer!
