I looked for 3 years for an 86-87 300DSL. 4 Months ago I finally located the deal I wanted. Miles is not always a problem. Sagging seat, trans problems and injector pump.
Many cars are going way under book price in the last 6 months. Repairs are expense!! That $3800 savings won't cover an engine rebuild. Look at the details of prior repairs.
My prior owner complained (not to me) about lack of power and brake vibration to the local MB dealer.
Dealer recomended new injector pump etc $2000+ and replacing rotors, ABS sensors, calipers and etc $1950. In fact fuel filters and rotors was all it needed $225.
