FS 1991 300D W124 2.5L Turbo
 
Well I have decided the wife's car is going up for sale, $2600 or BRO since the Climate Control or blower died. Not sure which.

Car has 204,000 miles, new Yokohama Avid GT tires with about 6,000 miles, Just installed rebuilt alternator with new voltage regulator this week. It has a new rebuilt transmission installed two years ago or about 7,000 miles ago. All vacuum lines replaced with synthetic long life tubing, all new brake lines, new fuel lines. Has new a/c thing that's in front of the new radiator, new RR tail light assembly, also replaced one of the front ones but don't remember which. Installed new Glow Plug's and new injectors that were pop tested and balanced last summer. Has Optima Red top Battery that's 2 years old. Also new fuel tank screen, and all spare oil filters (2) and fuel filters (?) will go with he car. The car has been running on Mobil 1 5W-40 T&SUV oil since spring, prior to that it was mobil 1 0W-40 in winter and Mobil 1 15-50 in summer. The car has a coolant heated windshield washer tank that holds a gallon and a half of fluid and has new windshield wiper.

Location is Poplar Bluff, MO I can be reached at oldnavy6393@gmail.com send an email with phone # and I will call you if you need more info. I can send current photo's if interested.

Any rust or body work? What shape is the interior? My wife's next car will be a w124 2.5, so I'm always on the lookout for a nice one.

No rust on the car, has some parking lot dings, slight dent in door (grandkid fell against door that would probably pop out with suction puller, wife has back into something (she says not) twice, dented trunk lid one time and broke tail light the other, place on trunk where the late tom cat slept, no chips in windshield and it the original with the sticker.

This car is in great shape, but has some small problems that are no big deal to fix it you are handy. Even the a/c would be a easy fix if I was ten years younger, but the heat stoke I had in last week of Aug or first week of Sept has ended my wrenching days of any kind. It took me all day to install the new alternator that 5 or 10 years ago would have taken be 30 minutes at most, so as I say my days are done tinkering on cars.

I bought the wife a '02 Ford Escort ZX2 Coupe one owner garage kept (like our MB's) with PS,PB, AT, A/C, AM/FM with tape player, new tires, and they changed the tranny, engine, and brake fluids today for the deal and only gave $6000 for the car. The car could pass for new as it has no dings or dents, but the wife will remedy that problem in first week I bet. ;)

If I was the daily driver of this car I could tell you more about it, but last time I dove it was two years ago I think. I will ask wife about any problems with car other then the radio died this spring, but the tape player works fine. Never heard of that in a car, I thought the tape players always died first.

Whe a car is 18 years old and with 200,000 miles on it, it will be a tinker car be it MB or FORD.

Hey Walt -- bummer that you have to part with the '91; I remember your posts when you found her! If you have any piddly work that needs done and you need to make a commissary run when I happen to be down at Scott AFB, drive her over and I'll turn the wrench for you. That's a nice looking W124. Someone would do well to snatch her up!

Hey shipmate how you doing? Been a while since we chatted. Hey I will be in Scott for a meds run on Monday, probably go to exchange and look around and maybe go to the commissary for batteries.

Bought the wife a little Ford puddle jumper today, a one owner Ford Escort ZX2, 2dr Coupe, A/C, PS, PB, AT, CC, alloy wheels, AM/FM/tape and with only 22,000 miles on the car.

I just had drill... won't be back down until December at this point. Need to catch up with you some weekend, though, and shake hands. Good luck getting the car sold; someone will be getting a nice one!

Thanks for the kind words, we are going to have to make it date one weekend for sure.

I have decided to make a video of the car and if I can post it on photobucket or here if I can. Will try to get it done tomorrow if I, but may be Friday.

Running-snail , must be a former 240D owner or maybe early 300D no turbo. ;)

Beautiful car.....if only I had the $$$ I want a 300D 2.5 badly! That car is literally the diesel clone of my 300E.....same color and interior....except the motor! (not that the M103 is bad, just thirsty) :D

I have a HS buddy with one and that is his comment. Other than that he can't believe the quality and longevity of these cars, he is still on original brakes at 279,000 mile mark and mine has originals also and look almost new.

I figure the little Escort I bought the wife will need a brake job in about 10,000 more miles if it goes that far, its doors sound like tin cars dropped on the garage floor. :rolleyes:
