Dad's 1982 300SD May Be For Sale:

1982 300SD, tan exterior with dark gray lower mouldings. New paint (6 months old) new interior with seats built from foam, Kenwood CD, New 617.952 with pistons, liners, Camshaft, Followers, valves, Guides, Chains, Sprockets, Injektors, Rod Bushings, Oil Pump, oil lines, radiator, Thermostat, turbocharger, etc., all belts & hoses (Continental),ALL new front suspension, tires and brakes.

168,000 actual miles, IIRC.

Additional new goodies are the hood pad, Monovalve, pushbutton unit, alternator, battery, Euro headlamps and new lock cylinder.

Dad built the car for my Mom but she cannot ride in it comfortably due to a medical condition, so Pop will be putting it up for sale soon.

This car needs nothing whatsoever. Forum member 'Hammerwerfer' has seen the car in person and will attest to this. There are no dents or scratches anywhere. less than 1,500 miles on complete overhaul.

Car is located in Porterville, California and I will be the point of contact for interested parties.

Photos to come and I will entertain reasonable offers. I would like to see him get a fair price for the car, so I am thinking around $4k and would appreciate your feedback.

Thanks....Robert

That is more than a fair price for the amount of repairs and up grades done to it. It would cost far more than that to go through a car and bring up a neglected to that level. 168K is low for that year.

Dad just addressed some additional 'details' that were bugging him about the car. He is a perfectionist and didn't want to offer it for sale unless it was as near perfect as possible.

As previously stated, everything on the car was rebuilt, including a new climate pushbutton unit, new odometer gears, underhood insulation pad, battery, calipers, pads, master cylinder and A/C service. Current tags, non-salvaged California title, and it is an original rust free Fresno car.

Asking price is $4,500.00 and car can be shown to interested parties by contacting me via PM or E-mail.

Thanks...

P.S. Photos later tonight...

from your description of his desire for perfection, I figured that was the answer.
was just curious if he originally got a deal on it because of some mechanical failure possibly.

Sounds like a real deal based on the level of work done

Seems like a screaming good deal for all the work! I would love to own a not abused and neglected car....and to actually hear what one if these engines are suppose to sound like!

Dad got the car from the original owner. It really only needed a paint job, as it ran OK. However, Dad built it with the intent of keeping it and driving it, so he did everything imaginable to it. The only motivation for selling it is they don't need it (they have 2 other vehicles) and it just isn't comfortable for my Mom due to a medical condition.

It's a very good car and the work done is top notch...

P.S.

Dad recently installed a Delphi R4 and it is still an original R-12 system that has never been converted.
