CL DC - 1991 mercedes 350SD Turbo Diesel - $3900

This sounds like a great price for a 350 SD, though with high miles it's not one I'd want. I seem to recall these going for much more...

Not associated in any way - just a heads up. Ad has pix.



6 cyl turbo diesel. New paint. Daily driver. Hi milage but extremely dependable.
looks and drives great!

i think conventional wisdom is that swapping in a 617 would be a lot of bother.

I've only seen ONE of the 350SDs here with my own eyes.

The placement of the rear badges aren't right - accident?

I'd bet so. I love it when the owners say "no accidents" and the badges are in the wrong places.

If I was even semi interested, I'd look the trunk over close.

No thats how they are, ive seen two 350SD's. one is up the street from me. They have the turbo badges like that for some reason. Unlike the SDL's or W124's where they are more off to the side.

Hrm, I'll take a pic of this broken 350SD when I go out to Dallas next. The badges aren't like the one in the link here.

The badges are NO different on ANY SD/SDL. the 350SD/SDL and turbo badge are in the exact same location as they are on the 300SDL.

No difference. Just like a 560SEL/420SEL/300SEL. For each badge I think 1 inch away from one side of the trunk and 1 inch above the bottom lip. That's where the badges SHOULD be.

Except for my two front fenders, my 350SD is completely original. Do I need to take a picture?

Here is one of the cars we sold...
