Description for Mercedes-Benz 300-Series 1980

We are offering up a 1980 Mercedes 300TD wagon. One owner blue and yellow California plate car. 233k original miles. Original owner passed away early 2016 and his family is selling the estate.
I am a amateur Mercedes enthusiast but I do know a little bit about Mercedes diesel. I have also had a very well known Mercedes Diesel mechanic look at the car. Engine is unbelievable! No blow by and purrs! Only pump diesel was used in this engine! The only thing we have done to the engine is a oil/filter change. Starts up quickly and runs down the road good. Drives straight and steering wheel is straight. Car is pretty impressive for almost being 40 years old.
Original owner was an electrical engineer and was his own mechanic on this Mercedes. All maintenance was performed by himself. Car has updated climate control which is a very big deal. AC and heat work. Everything seems to work on the car. Vacuum door locks work as well.
Overall my assessment of the car is that it is a true surviving California car. It seems to run and drive like a well taken care of car. I have put over 125 miles on it. While not a lot of miles, I just like to have an idea what I'm offering on eBay for the new owners benefit. Although a used car, I got that typical Mercedes diesel feeling that I could drive the car to New York and back and be fine. If you know these cars then you know how reliable they are. Car is not perfect and shows the appropriate wear of a 233k car. As you can see in the photos, just a nice survivor.
$500 deposit due within 48 hours. Remainder payment due within 5 business days. Shipping is the responsibility of the new owner/purchaser. Please have all finances completed before making a bid/offer. The car is being sold from Sacramento,California in Sacramento county. We have a major airport and you are welcome to fly in and drive home. We aren't selling a restoration but we are selling a car that you can get in and drive and was well cared for. Ask all questions before bidding please.
