Rust Free 82 300SD in Dallas TX needs new home (lots of pics)!!!

First off - this is not my car (though it could be the twin of my '84), so any inquiries need to go to the owner - Erwin B - hm # 972.390.9297 or cell # 214.435.3873 or email at linderhof@mybluelight.com.

OK, now what I now about the car. I've known Erwin for over five years and this is weekend car, the one he drives to the gym on the weekends. The rest of the time it stays in the garage. He bought the car in '97 used and I do not know the service history prior to that (Erwin might know more).

Since I acquired my '84 and brought mine back to life as a daily driver, Erwin started letting me do some maintenance on his so I know what has been done this year. We just did oil & filter, air filter, pre & regular fuel filter, new thermostat and serious flush of the cooling system (we replaced with genuine MB straw colored coolant - hey, I learned something hanging out on this list!). We also ran Diesel Purge through the injectors.

The next thing we were going to tackle were new belts (they need them), but Erwin got a job offer back in Europe and he is looking to sell the car before he leaves in about three months. The A/C is not working properly. It blows very weak through the defrost vents. Fan / blower speed is fine, just not cold. I jumped the condenser fan and it spins up fine. That is as far as I got on diagnosis.

Esthetics. There is ZERO rust on this car. I checked the wheel arches, under hood, rocker panels, and the back of the windshield where it meets the trunk (see pics) - no rust. The car looks good from 10 feet, but as you get closer the paint needs a good weekend with the buffer. No major dings or scratches, just needs what I call the Meguiars three step wax job (paint cleaner / polish / wax). There is no delamination on the rear window (mine does), which I think confirms the mileage (more on that in a bit). The interior needs a good cleaning but the leather is much more intact that mine (again, speaking to the miles).

Erwin says, the speedo stopped working this year just short of 109K. Hopefully someone can run the VIN using the pic I took to confirm the miles. The alloy rims looked to have had a couple spray painted by the previous owner. I *think* a couple of the tires are new (have to ask Erwin on that one).

Other stuff that I can remember. On the freeway something had popped up and hit the egg crate part of the grill and made a hole, so we replaced that this year and with it the silver cross strips. Some the sound deadening under the hood has come off.

Erwin is not a detailing fanatic like me, so don't be surprised when you see stuff in his car in the pics... Overall the car seems sound, but you will have to ask Erwin about all the electrics (sunroof, windows, stereo, cruise, etc). I did not go through them to check. I think that is about all I can remember so I'll start posting pics!


***Erwin is looking for the best offer over $2,000 ***

****08-05-04 UPDATE!!!

Erwin accepted an offer on the car tonight from a gentleman in Fort Worth TX. Unless the deal doesn't materialize, the car is sold!

He wanted me to do an update post and say "Thank You" for all the inquiries and for helping him find a new home for his 300SD!****
