Description

LEGENDARY 3.0L INLINE-5 TURBO DIESEL, 4SPD AUTO, A/C, PWR STEER/BRAKES, RELIABLE

This 1985 Mercedes-Benz 300D is part of the earned legacy of ultra-robust German-engineered sedans. So when you can get strong turbodiesel classic that's also loaded with all the best features (including a sunroof and modern A/C,) you'll soon realize this is a true affordable icon with everything you want.

The 300D is the right car for the classic market. It has the larger engine of the diesel series, and a few more premium touches. Mercedes was truly the king of understated style during this era with its crisp lines that had smooth rounded edges. And the way the rub strip runs nearly unbroken line as it goes down both sides and wraps around all highlights how straight the panels are. It's a testament to both the build quality of a Mercedes and the care that this sedan has received over the years. These Mercedes diesels are known to be adventurers, and this one even comes with a Yakima roof rack, so you can bring more of the world home with you.

The interior is a full blue package, right down to the carpeting. And it all remains looking top-quality, which is another sign of this sedan's proper care. This has the space to be a practical classic, and family and friends will happily come along for the ride because this upholds the Mercedes reputation for premium motoring. That means the best in comfort features, like power windows, power locks, wood accenting, fold-down armrests, and a sunroof. Plus, this one has been upgraded along the way with worthwhile pieces like an AM/FM/CD stereo and cold-blowing modern R134a air conditioning.

Under the hood is what makes the 300D so desirable. The Mercedes diesel motors are the true high mileage kings. They have a one of the best reputation for robustness in the industry, and the 3.0-liter turbocharged unit seen here was one of the most powerful versions they ever offered for series. This is believed to be the original motor to the car, and it even comes with the original maintenance history. These have never been speed demons, but you already knew that. Their true value is that this was built to be an effortless cruiser. That's why you have a cruise control, power steering, and a four-speed automatic transmission w/highway-friendly overdrive. And because this was up to the autobahn standards, you also have the confidence of a fully independent suspension and four-wheel power disc brakes.

You already know these are the best at mixing luxury and robustness in a one vintage package. So if you're looking for a classic that still is ready for your daily life, don't miss this deal. Call now!
