    I am selling this wonderful 300D coupe. It's certainly a rare car. There is 206k miles on the clock. Anyone who knows anything about the Mercedes diesel, knows that it still have many good years left of service. It has an automatic transmission as well as cruise control and A\C. The A\C isn't hooked up. Other then that, everything else works great and looks nice. The paint is still mostly shiny. Could use some wax. There are a few dings here and there. But overall, considering the age, the car is in remarkably good shape. I have a clean title in hand. The brakes are in excellent working order, they stop with authority. It doesn't over heat or leave oil all over the drive way. The car just works and it's just a pleasure to drive. You won't be disappointed in this example.

    Fender was repainted some time ago, Don't know when. Early 90's? Its close in person, pictures blow it out of proportion. I have about 5 of every filter on the car new in the boxes along with lots and lots of other spare parts like switches and relays. Also, I have a spare injector pump. I have just replaced all the wood trip with better looking stuff. The seats are in good condition, just need a good cleaning. No cracks in the dash or rips in the seat. It does have a block heater installed.

    Great car, shame it's THAT color. Is that the only color MB offered in the late 70s early 80s, because it seems like everyone I see is that same color.

    Still an awesome car GLWS!

    Mid to high 20's on a daily. 30 if your nurse it. It floats on the highway and eats up the bumps. It still pretty quiet as well. Set the cruise and just drive.
