It seems from browsing the group that if I want to get a diesel wagon, I
want to get a 300TD from 1987 or earlier, to make sure I get iron heads
on the engine.
...so what I'm wondering is how much these cars are truly worth to those
who know. I'm in Southern California (United States) and I keep an eye
on the used car ads but saw a '76 (this was a 300D I think?) that was
priced at $17,000 which seemed a bit, umm, crazy to me.
So here's one that's got just over 290k miles, it's an '85, it's been
repainted recently and needs a new radiator and they're asking $7775.
Are these cars really worth this, or are they trying to milk the hippies
who want to go biodiesel (me, except I don't have the hair <g>)?
Here's a link, and it's not a lot of info, but...
Can anyone give me any idea what this car might actually be worth?
Edmunds.com tells me it's worth about $800. Does anyone know of any
good diesel folks in San Diego that I could call to have check it out?
Any other info I should be aware of, and if I go to take a look at it,
anything I should particularly look for?
