Description for Mercedes-Benz 300-Series 1981

1981 MERCEDES BENZ 300TD WAGON SURVIVOR 96k ORIGINAL MILES!!!!!

CLEAN CLEAN, NO RUS, NO ACCIDENTS, DOCUMENTED ONE OWNER

Power Steering, Power Brakes, Sunroof, Wood trim, Air Conditioning, Wow!!!

This amazing car was purchased new in 1981 in Miami Florida by a well to do

Guatemalan who drove the car down to his native country upon purchase in 1981. The sticker price was

$32,000.00- Adjusting for inflation today this would be $88,000.00!!! These wagons

were SO popular there was a black market for used ones, as there was a wait of years

at the dealership for new ones!!!!!! This car was nicknamed Princess by the owner’s

family, as it was his pride and joy and he LOVED it. The car was always garage kept

and serviced according to manufacturer specifications by the dealer. The wagon has

the bullet proof 5 cylinder turbo charged diesel engine. Experts regard this is as one

of the most reliable engines ever produced. Half a million miles is not unheard of.

This one is barely broken in at a well maintained 96k!!!!! I purchased the car from the

original owners wife, and I have known the family for years.



The exterior paint was freshened up a few years ago and shows well. There are some

chips and minor defects. Princess was never in any accidents, and is virtually rust

free. There is a tiny dime size bubble forming behind the front passenger wheel well,


and a small area near the battery. The chrome trim is bright and laser straight. The

interior leather style seats and door panels are original and clean and look amazing!!!! The

quality of workmanship on this car is truly breath-taking . The sound the doors make

when closing is quality that does not exist anymore. There is a tiny hole in each of the

front seats, but they are hardly noticeable. Please refer to pictures. The dash with its

wood trim is perfect as it had a cover on it since new. All items that I inspected are in proper working

order including the air conditioning (blows cold), power door locks, power windows,

etc. Carpet is original and mostly nice; however there are a few wear spots and fading.

Please refer to pictures. This car is a joy to drive, and has plenty of power, !!! The

original Becker Europa stereo cassette system works and sounds great!!!! Well the

radio works, I haven’t tested the tape deck because I don’t have any tapes…. The only

item missing is the original antenna, which was replaced with a period correct cellular

one 25 years ago. The clock is not working, and I have not tried the heater; but I

remember the owner’s son telling me it was disconnected many years ago, as heat is

not used in this climate. It still has the sealed original first aid kit in the rear

compartment!!! The sunroof mechanism is in perfect working condition and does not

leak, and the crank looks like new

The car comes with all the original paperwork including the original owners manual,

maintenance booklet, dealer info and a bunch of other original Mercedes material

that came when the car was new. Please refer to photo. I would love to keep Princess,

but I don’t have space for her.

I have described this car to the best of my ability. This car is 36 years old and has no

warrantee. It is the responsibility of any prospective owners to ask questions and

inspect the car in person. I will do my best to answer any questions in a timely

manner. The rear hydraulic suspension works, and the rear shocks will need to be changed soon.
