Thank you for looking! This is a beautiful 1983 Mercedes 300SD turbo diesel. This car is in really great shape inside and out.Carfax is perfect.There are ~296,000 miles on the 5 cylinder diesel engine, which runs extremely well - there's nothing like driving these cars! The automatic transmission shifts perfectly with no issues. The only real issue externally is the paint, which I would judge 7 out of 10. The paint on the trunk lid is spotting and there is some fading on a small area on the roof. No dents,but a few scratches here and there.I have all the service records for review, thebulk of the work is done by Tony's German auto care in Santa Ana, CA. Fuel filters and occasional oil changes done by Fletcher Jones. This car has been extremely well taken care of.Some additional info on the mechanical/exterior:
  • Newneutral safety switch and shifter bushings
  • New radiator and water pump
  • New cruise control module (cruise control works great!)
  • New vacuum system for powerdoor locks
  • New vacuum lines (for engine shut off)
  • New motor mounts (~6,000 miles ago)
  • New front brakes (~1,000 miles ago)
  • New rear tires (1,500 miles ago). all tires are in great shape
  • 14" Mercedes wheels re-chromed 1 year ago
  • all fuel filters replaced at 287K
  • Battery replaced ~1 year ago
The interior of the car is very good. All tan leather is in great shape, no tears in any seats. There is a small crack in the dash coming off of the speaker vent (i can send you close up photos). All door panels are excellent, however the driver side front and rear eachhave a crack on the top. There are no tears or stains inthe headliner or anywhere else. Carpet is in excellent condition as well. Other highlights:
  • Rebuilt dash instrument panel (speedometer, tach, etc.)
  • New instrument panel window
  • The sunroof mechanism (including motor in the trunk) has all berebuilt/replaced. It works perfectly!
  • Alpine cd/usb/aux/bluetooth stereo
  • Focal 4" 2-way slim speakers throughout
  • Alpine 45W/4 head unit power pack
  • 250 watt mono amplifier
  • 10" subwoofer
  • Renegade 20%window tint (with warranty card)
Allaudio system andwindow tinting was done by AudioToyz in Rancho Santa Margarita in July 2013. Documentation included. All interior and exterior lights work perfectly. The power windows, seats and mirror all function (passenger frontwindow mechanism was rebuilt about 2 years ago). Power (vacuum) door and trunk locks all work. Air conditioning and auto climate control works perfectly, blowing ice cold air (the air conditioning unit has NOT been converted and was charged last fall). Center vent baffles were just replaced, so all vents work. All the wood trim is excellent.
Thank you for looking at this great car. It's truly a gem and a lot of fun to drive. Please email me with any questions or if you want additional photos of anything. I'm located in Ladera Ranch (orange county, CA).
I accept certified funds only and any shipping would be the responsibility of the buyer. Good Luck!
