Opportunity to by what could be really nice car - 1981 300TD wagon. ~132K
original miles, rebuilt engine with about 2K miles on it. Has been
sitting in a garage for at least 9 years, not running. Any ideas on value
or particular pitfalls about me purchasing this vehicle? It would be my
first MB, and first diesel. I'm not afraid to get my hands dirty, but
don't have a ton of extra money at the moment.
Suspension "seems" good, no obvious leaks, engine compartment is
immaculate. Still haven't tried to start it yet, sort of leery without
gleaning advice from people with some experience. Rear hatch supports are
shot. Interior is immaculate, body better than fair, medallion broken off
by vandals a decade ago. Other than that, I just don't know.
