Well, I reluctantly have decided to part with my 300SDL. This car has
an unbelievably sound engine (253K) and transmission ($1700 rebuild 30K
ago). It runs and shifts beautifully! Other work done over the past
New master cylinder & front pads
New lifters and timing chain
New fan clutch
New sunroof headliner
New injection pump aneroid
Alpine CD player AM/FM (Original Becker radio included out of the car)
New California registration in June or July
I'm the second owner of the car. It comes with all work orders since
new, the original monroney sticker, owner's booklets and even the
original first aid kit! The front seats have been covered by sheepskins
since new so they are pristine. The back seat is in very good condition
for its age. The rest of the interior is fair to good.
The body is straight with the exception of a few door dings. The clear
coat on roof and trunk lid is beginning to deteriorate and will require
The car consistently averages 25 to 27 mpg. There is no smoke and it
uses about a quart of oil between 5000 mile oil changes.
Why I'm selling:
Quirky electrical problems with the climate control (combined with
broken driver's side regulator)
Occasionally ABS light comes on
Not a practical car for carting around 2 sixty pound dogs and 200 lbs
of equipment every day.
I'm asking $3200 for the car. From a mechanical standpoint, I think it
is well worth it. Feel free to call Vincent at 707 224 9195 for more
info or to set up a test drive.
