This is a 1980 300SD purchased new by my father, who passed it onto me. It's always been a second car, so has been driven little when therewas salt on the roads. Has the optional sunroof. Just 144K miles on it,starts right up and runs great,like it was new, smooth.It had accident damageabout ten years ago to theright front quarterpanel., it was professionally restored. There is some rust ina few spots, near thedoors, down low as shown in the pictures.Paint is overall in good shape,except for the trunklid, where it's peelingon the lower part as shown in thepictures. Engine is solid, doesn't burnoil, but it does have a tiny oil leak, weeping at the oil cooler hoses atthe front, near the radiator. It's so small that no oil needs to be addedbetween oil changes, the level barely drops.
The HVAC is notworking, the HVAC servo needs to be replaced.The system was converted to R134A refrigeranta couple decadesago. Cruise control doesnot work. It has somerain leaks fromseals, water shows up in passenger footwell and behinddrivers seat. Interior is in good condition,except the back seat whichhas a tear inthe leather on the right side asshown in the picture andthe driver's seat has some of the color worn off from sliding in and out.It has a Blaupunkt CD stereo with Denon 240 watt amplifier, ADSspeakers and 9"subwoofer, but it's not working, suspect it's the ampIt has new tie rod ends, new rear sway bar links and new tires.
