1980 Mercedes 300d (diesel)
Body and chassis have significant rust
This model is famous for its long lasting durability. The engine and
transmission on these cars regularly achieve 350,000 miles with normal
This car has been maintained meticulously. Interior is in great shape
with mint condition leather seats. Motor and transmission are in
perfect running order. This was a Michigan car and the rust has taken
its toll on the body. My mechanic tells me that the rust under the car
is significant and should not be driven much more as it is only a matter
of time before something breaks. So, in good conscience I am selling
this car with the recommendation that it become an
engine/transmission/parts donor. Have a good W123 body with an engine
which is shot? Just yank it out and drop in this motor. It will likely
carry you for another 100,000+ miles.
FYI: Diesels are exempt from California smog regulations, so no smog
tests – EVER! Furthermore, you can turn this into a bio-diesel motor
and do your part to help the environment. This motor gets ~26mpg at 75mph!
