I have talked to the guy quite a bit. It seems like a good car for the price. It happens to be a twin to mine (same color). I asked the guy to send a photo of the top of the engine, so I could see if there was any injectors leaking. Haven't gotten it yet. You may want to ask him for a photo as well, maybe he will understand how important this is that it needs to be checked.

1987 Mercedes 300d Moving Special - $600 (san jose downtown)

1987 mercedes 300d
condition: fair
cylinders: 6 cylinders
drive: rwd
fuel: diesel
title status: clean
transmission: automatic
type: sedan

Engine runs strong but transmission needs overhaul/replacement. Mechanic says rear brakes need attention in addition to charging issues. Body decent but paint is faded with a small dent front passenger fender. If you're a good wrencher and dig these older diesels this could be for you $600 or best clean title in hand registration paid but needs tags
