1979 Mercedes 300 D in tremendous original shape. 80,000 original miles. There is zero rust, undercarriage is perfect along with the body. I purchased this from a friends mother last year with 72,000 miles for my daughter. My friends mother kept this car because it was her first one and now she owns two new Mercedes. My friend is a car collector who owns 14 cars and is a family that takes care of cars. I am selling this because my daughter decided to go to school in England. She loved this car.I did everything to this car to make it safe for my daughter this past year. The car is performing as it should. I had the diesel tank professionally removed, cleaned and resealed by a company who just does Mercedes in Santa Cruz CA. A new fuel sending unit was also installed. Bosch glow plugs were installed along with Monark relay glow plug kit from Mercedessourse. This allows the glow plugs to warm up sooner and start every time. New tires and new spare. I only used Mercedes parts. New brakes with near rear caliper. Mercedes battery with at least two years left. The compression on the engine is great and the transmission runs smooth. Ac blows cold, heat works along with the Becker radio. Power windows work and door locks. There was a plastic piece where the water from the radiator runs through was leaking. I found someone who made it out of aluminum and that was also replaced. New headlights and wipers. The only minor thing that just happened is two minor cracks on the dash because of the sun. See photo. Easy fix. This car is ready to drive with no maintenance. Great gas mileage. Haggerty blue book is concourse $16,400. This car is fairly close. Whoever buys this car is getting one of the best engines Mercedes ever built. Like my mechanic said you could drive this car to the moon. Seriously if your looking for this model car you will not find a better one. Contact me if you have any questions.
