WE ARE ALWAYS ON THE HUNT FOR UNIQUE/ODD BALLS AND CLEAN ORIGINAL VEHICLES AND HAVE HAD ABOUT A HALF DOZEN 300 SERIES DIESEL SEDANS AND THIS IS OUR THIRD COUPE, UT WITH US ON THE CONSTANT SEARCH THIS IS THE FIRST COUPE WE HAVE HAD IN THE LAST 3 YEARS. IN THE DIESEL WORLD AND BY ANY STANDARD OF 37 YEARS OF AGE 173K MILES IS LOW AND DUE TO THE EXCELLENT DEPENDABILITY AND INCREDIBLE FUEL MILEAGE THESE CARS GET DRIVEN AND IT IS VERY HARD TO FIND THEM WITH UNDER 250K NOW DAYS. THIS MERCEDES DOESN'T HAVE ANY OF THE COMMON DOWNSHIFTING ISSUES, PEEDOMETER PROBLEMS OR COLD START ISSUES. WE HAD THIS CAR IN OUR LOCAL DIESEL SHOP FOR INSPECTION AND HAD BOTH FUEL FILTERS REPLACED ALONG WITH THE MOTOR MOUNTS AS THEY WERE NOT BAD, UT FELT IS WAS TIME. IT HAS JUST A COUPLE HUNDRED MILES ON THE OIL CHANGE AND THE BRAKES WERE RECENTLY REPLACED. THIS 79 IS NOT A RESTORED SHOW PIECE OR PERFECT TIME CAPSULE GARAGE FIND, UT HAS BEEN A VERY WELL CARED FOR REGISTERED AND DRIVING CAR FOR THE LAST 37 YEARS. THIS CAR IS VERY CORRECT, OMPLETE AND IS IN GREAT SHAPE FOR BEING IT'S AGE AND ORIGINAL WITH A VERY NICE INTERIOR WITH MINIMAL WEAR. IT HAS VERY NICE STRAIGHT AND RUST FREE EXTERIOR WITH GLOSSY ORIGINAL PAINT FREE OF ANY DENTS, INGS, IG CHIPS OR SCRATCHES AND ALL THE CHROME AND TRIM SHOW WELL. THIS IS A HARD TO FIND FACTORY A/C CAR, UT IT NEEDS A RECHARGE TO BLOW COLD AGAIN.

BODY-ALL ORIGINAL BODY AND PAINT IN THIS DESIRABLE AND WELL LOVED COLOR OPTION M/B CALLED GRAY BLUE METALLIC AND IT SUITS IT WELL BECAUSE SOME CALL IT GRAY AND SOME REFER IT AS BLUE, 'M ONE OF THE LATTER. THIS HAS CLEARLY BEEN A WELL LOVED, ARAGED AND WAXED CLASSIC OTHERWISE IT JUST SIMPLY COULDN'T LOOK NEARLY THIS GOOD OR HAVE SURVIVED THE NEARLY 4 DECADES OF IT'S LIFE WITHOUT BEING SIDELINED AT SOME POINT. THIS IS EXTREMELY CLEAN FROM TOP TO BOTTOMAND THE UNDERCARRIAGE STILL HAS THE ORIGINAL PROTECTIVE COSMOLINE UNDERCOATING AND BLUE BODY COLOR IN WHEEL WELLS. IT AMAZINGLY STILL HAS ALL IT'S ORIGINAL GLASS EVEN THE FRONT WINDSHIELD! THE PAINT HAS A HIGH GLOSS AND NICE FINISH THAT I THINK LOOKS FANTASTIC, UT I LOVE ORIGINAL CARS THAT SHOW AGE, CARS AND THEIR JOURNEY ON THEIR FACE. THIS CAR TO ME IS WHAT I REFER TO AS A HONEST CAR. IT IS ONE THAT LEAVES NO QUESTIONS WHEN YOU LOOK AT IT AND ISN'T HIDING ANY STORIES. IT IS ALL ORIGINAL PAINT EXCEPT THE PASSENGER REAR QUARTER PANEL HAS BEEN RE-SPRAYED AT ONE POINT FROM THE TAIL LIGHT AND BLENDED FORWARD UP TO THE DOOR AND JUST UP TO THE TRUNK GAP AND REAR WINDOW PILLAR. I'M ASSUMING IT IS FROM A MINOR PARKING LOT TYPE INSTANCE AS THERE IS NO SIGN OF BODY WORK FROM LOOKING IN THE TRUCK AND I HAVE BEEN OVER THE METAL AND CAN'T FIND ANY FILLER, UST SOLID STEEL. THIS CAR HAS HAD A JOURNEY OF 37 YEARS AND 173K MILES, O IT DOES HAVE SMALL LITTLE SIGNS OF WEAR WITH LITTLE CHIPS ON PANEL EDGES, FEW SMALL UNDER A INCH SCRATCHES THAT CAN BE FOUND ON THE BODY, OUR TYPICAL SMALL STONE CHIPS ON LOWER END OF BODY, N LOWER VALANCE BELOW FRONT BUMPER AND ON VERY FRONT FASCIA OF FENDERS, UT ALL ARE NO LARGER THEN A TIP OF A PENCIL AND IT AMAZINGLY HAS FAR LESS THEN YOU WOULD EXPECT. THE PAINT LOOKS GREAT, UT IT DOES SHOW IT'S AGE WHEN YOU GET CLOSE ENOUGH TO TOUCH THE CAR AND IT'S MAINLY BECAUSE OF THE METALLIC IN THE PAINT. METALLIC'S WILL ALWAYS AGE HARDER OR FASTER THEN SOLIDS. ALL LENSES AND HEADLIGHTS ARE STILL CLEAR, RIGHT AND FULL OF COLOR WITH NO CRACKS, HIPS OR FADING ALONG WITH ALL CHROME AND BRIGHT WORK THAT STILL HAS A DEEP REFLECTION, UT THE GRILLE HAS A LITTLE CHIP OUT OF ONE OF THE FINS ON RIGHT SIDE. THIS 300CD CAME WITH THE 14" STAINLESS CAPS ON FACTORY STEEL WHEELS THAT ARE IN FANTASTIC SHAPE WITH NO CURBS AND SHOW LITTLE WEAR. THIS MERCEDES HAS BEEN UNDERCOATED FROM THE FACTORY SINCE NEW AND IT HAS LEFT THE METAL AND UNDERCARRIAGE IN NICE, LEAN AND SOLID CONDITION. AS EXPECTED THE RUBBERS ARE SHOWING AGE WITH SOME FADING AND CRACKS, UT ARE PRESENTABLE, UNCTIONING AND PREVENTING ANY LEAKS. THE DOORS SHUT LIKE NEW AND MAKE THAT VAULT LIKE SOUND THAT EVERY CAR GUY GUY LOVES TO HEAR. TRUNK AND HOOD BOTH POP RIGHT OPEN AND SHUT STRAIGHT AND SMOOTH. THIS CLASSIC MERCEDES DIESEL IS TRULY AN INCREDIBLE CAR THAT IS BY FAR ONE OF THE NICER ORIGINAL EXAMPLES I'VE SEEN ON THE ROAD.

INTERIOR-INSIDE IT IS FINISHED IN FACTORY OPTIONED BLUE AND IS IN NICE ORIGINAL CONDITION WITH BRIGHT VIBRANT TRUE COLORS THAT SURPRISINGLY HAVE NO FADING OR MATERIAL BREAKDOWN ON ANY PANEL, RIM OR UPHOLSTERY. IT SHOWS ONLY MINOR WEAR AND IS A COMPLETE NON SMOKER FROM NEW WITH NO PETS OR ODORS. IT IS ALL ORIGINAL DOWN TO THE OWNERS MANUALS IN THE GLOVE BOX AND THE COMPLETE FACTORY FIRST AID KIT IN PLACE. ABSOLUTE NEAR PRISTINEFRONT AND REAR SEATS WITH ONLY MINOR WEAR ON THE DRIVER SEAT ODDLY ON THE INNER TOP RIGHT EDGE, EALLY NICE DOOR PANELS WITH NO HOLES, RACKS OR FADING, UT THEY ARE MISSING THE PLASTIC BOTTOM POUCHES THAT PUSH IN AND ARE COMMONLY MISSING. REALLY NICE DASH AND DASH TRIM WITH CRYSTAL CLEAR GAUGES AND ONLY ONE CRACK IN THE VERY MIDDLE OF THE TOP OF DASH AND THE PLASTIC PANEL THAT GOES UNDER THE DRIVER SIDE OF DASH IS INCLUDED, UT HAS A COUPLE CORNERS BROKEN. THE REAR NETS ON THE FRONT SEATS ARE STILL NICE AND TIGHT! THE ORIGINAL BERBER WOOL LOOP CARPETS LOOK GOOD WITH NO FADING OR STAINS AND ONLY HAS WEAR THROUGH MARKS ON DRIVER FOOT ARE, UT IT HAS FLOOR MATS THAT COVER IT UP AND WERE REMOVED TO SHOW CONDITION. HEATER WORKS GREAT, UT THE FACTORY A/C DOES NOT BLOW COLD. IT HAS A UPGRADED CD PLAYER AND ALL SWITCHES WORK AND ALL WINDOWS GO UP AND DOWN, UT SLOWLY AND THE SUNROOF OPENS SLOWLY AND SOME OF THE TIME ONLY OPENS HALF OF THE WAY BEFORE IT RUNS OUT OF STEAM AND YOU HAVE TO GIVE IT A LITTLE PUSH TO OPEN OR CLOSE ALL THE WAY, O NEW MOTORS MAY BE NICE. THE TRUNK IS VERY CLEAN AND ALL INTACT WITH ORIGINAL MAT, ARPET, PARE AND TOOL KIT. OVERALL FOR 37 YEARS OLD THIS INTERIOR HAS MADE THE JOURNEY AND HELD UP INCREDIBLY.

MECHANICAL- MECHANICALLY THIS IS A SOLID LITTLE DRIVER AND IT HAS A VERY CLEAN UNDERCARRIAGE AND UNDER THE HOOD! THE MOTOR HASVERY LITTLEDIRT OR GRIME BUILD UP, LL DECALS AND WRITING ARE STILL FACTORY FRESH AND THE PAINT ALONG FIRE WALL AND WHEEL WELLS IS FREE OF ANY DIRT, ICKS, RIME BUILD UP AND DAMAGEFREE WITH A NICE PAINT FINISH. THE LEGENDARY AND DEPENDABLE 3.0 DIESEL MOTOR TRULY LOOKS AND RUNS GREAT AND WHILE IT WON'T WIN ANY DRAG RACES IT IS JUST A BLAST TO DRIVE. THIS DIESEL MOTOR HAS NO COLD START ISSUES THAT FIRES RIGHT UP EVERY TIME AND PULLS STRONG DOWN THE ROAD WITH NO HESITATION, NOCKING, ICKING, MOKING OR ISSUES. 4-SPEED AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSIONSHIFTS NICELY WITHOUT SHAKING, HUTTERING OR MISS SHIFTING AND DOWN SHIFTS ON DEMAND AND BRAKES NICE AND STRAIGHT WITH A SMOOTH PEDAL. THE STEERING IS NICE AND STRAIGHT AND STEERS WITH NO NOISES OR BINDING, UT IS STARTING TO GET A LITTLE LOOSE WITH A 1/2 TO 3/4 INCH OF PLAY. THE TIRES ARE ABOUT 50% SO WILL LAST A WHILE, UT IF YOU WAN TO GET EVERY SQUARE INCH OF THE PAVEMENT ON HEAVY WINTER ROADS YOU MAY WANT TO GET A SET OF NEW RUBBER. THE A/C AS MENTIONED ABOVE IS NO LONGER BLOWING COLD, UT ALL THE HARD TO FIND PARTS ARE INTACT AND THERE. THERE IS ALSO A CABLE AT THE VERY TOP OF THE MOTOR THAT COME TO THE LINKAGE THAT IS NOT CONNECTED, UT EVERYTHING SEEMS TO OPERATE CORRECTLY AND IT DOESN'T HAVE ANY UP OR DOWN SHIFTING ISSUES, O I COUNTED MY BLESSINGS AND LEFT IT ALONE LOL (YOU 300D GUYS PROBABLY KNOW WHAT IT IS, O THROW ME A MESSAGE IF YOU DO AND ILL PASS IT ON). THESE 300D AND 300CD CLASSIC MERCEDES ARE ALWAYS GOING TO CLIMB IN VALUE AND ARE SOUGHT AFTER AND KNOWN FOR THEIRGREAT FUEL MILEAGE, ORQUE AND DEPENDABILITY. THIS SWEET LITTLE COUPE IS A DRIVER AND CLEARLY HAS BEEN DRIVEN AS IT HAS BEEN CONTINUOUSLY REGISTERED AND ON THE ROAD EVERY YEAR OF IT'S LIFE!!

WE HOPE IT GOES TO A LOVING AND APPRECIATIVE DIESEL HOME THAT WILL CONTINUE TO PUT THOUSANDS MORE ROAD MILES ON IT AS THE LOVING ORIGINAL 2 OWNERS DID! BID TO OWN WITH NO RESERVE!

The older the car, he harder it is to define the condition of the vehicle.Most of our vehicles are specialty vehicles or are 15+ years old, nd usually trucks. Because of this, t is very difficult to describe each vehicle to everyone’s satisfaction. Based on the bidder'spersonal experience, ome bidders will be overly pleased with my description and pictures, nd others may feel that I fell short. I postthese auctions based on how I want to see auctions when I’m buying, keeping in mind what I look for, nd I try to put your eye's to what I can see and touch. Please help me by asking all questions and letting me know if other pictures are wanted. If you do not see a pic or description of a item or a area on the truck please do not assume anything and ask me about the specifics your a needing or for more pics and i will post every question asked by members so all potential bidders can see. Every car is available for inspection and i personally drive each vehicle before listing it and If anything does not work properly I will let you know. Of course I amonly human and these are mechanical creatures and these are usedvehicles, o please keep this in mind when bidding >< >< ><
