1979 300 SD. I've worked on a number of these 617 diesels, and the 116 SD is the most DIY friendly of this DIY friendly TURBO Diesel series. No EGR to pack the intake with soot, simplified throttle linkage and tranny set up. Room to access most everything (wide body and fewer gizmos in the way). A beginner DIYer dreamboat. Oh yeah - very quick, fast enough, big, fantastic ride, and you can't shake the rear end loose. Downside is rust.
