1980 Mercedes-Benz 300-Series Turbo Diesel California Car, 100% Rust Free description
These are the last of the handmade Mercedes Benz and the final year of production for the w-116 body.
The 3.0 liter turbo charged inline 5 cylinder diesel engine starts right up and runs extremely well! The idle is smooth. There are no apparent leaks, smoke, overheating or any unusualnoises. The entire drive trainis solid and tight.The automatic transmission shifts properly into all gears.The brakes, steering and suspension are in good working order.
The current odometer reading is 232,542 miles....which is a fraction of what these engines are capable of doing. They are notoriousfor going up to 1,000,000 miles without a singlerebuild.
Cosmetically this 300 SD looks great! The structural integrity is superb and the frame is rock solid. The body and chassis, floors and wheels wells are 100% rust free, the beauty of an original California car. There is not a singleblister or bubble anywhere whatsoever. The paint finish has a glossy finish.
The overall appearance of this 300 SD gets high marks for having an honest, original and authentic look.
-All four tires have decent tread on them
-Nice chrome trim moldings, lights lenses and bumpers
The interior is in good original condition.
-Nice seating surfaces, carpets, headliner and door panels. The dash has some misc imperfections. This car also feature a fully functioning power sunroof.
-Good wood surfaces and trim
-Factory radio by Becker Mexico sounds loud and clear.
This is a timeless classic that will only continue to increasein value. We hope the next owner/operatorappreciated it as much as we do.
