Default '78 Benz 300D diesel...

I'm selling one of my favorite toys to make room for another. This Forest Green, 4 door classic Benz is in VERY good condition. Paint near perfect, 170k miles on car but only 50Kish on motor installed 3 years ago. Many new parts include, exhaust system, heat system, valve job done a month ago, among others. $2,600 spent recently to make it near perfect. Interior is leather and in excellent shape. $4,675 or BO. I really need to move this car out, so offers are encouraged-too many toys...


UPDATE 10 January, 2006: Many ppl have asked that I send them pics, so I figured it would be easier to post them here. The car was in storage until late December and now it's in my garage, hence the dust. I want it out of my garage ...

'78 300D was my first car. Red. I loved that car. We used it as the getaway care when we rolled houses. Good luck with the sale.

darn that brings back memories. Had a "merlot" '78 300D forever and the odometer quit working at ~250k and we put at least another 150k on it before selling to some Indians(The red dot kind)

Good car and the sunroof was utilized in several neighborhood excursions to terrorize the neighbors.

I think that one had a sunroof, We had 2, one was a newer one so forgive me if I have my facts a little screwed up.

What did you do to fix it up? What mpg does it get? Is it reliable? AJ
