1991 350 SDL

Very nice condition ...see photos at 350 SDL Photos by stephensonclan | Photobucket

Just turned 200k!

Original engine (head has never been off), original transmission (just a tiny bit slow going into reverse as it was when I bought t at 103k from my neighbor).

Have replaced a lot since it bought it in 1999 ...Bilstein extra firm shocks, water pump, belt tensioner, vacuum pump, recent injectors, recent glow plugs, belts, Klima relay, ASD sensors, a/c compressor and conversion to 134 (have leak somewhere as must recharge every. 2 years), recent rotors and pads (packed bearings), recent ball joints, tie rod ends, driveshaft flex disc, wheels refinished.

Mobil 1 for last 100k, changed every 5k or so, transmission fluid changed every 30k with MB fluid, recent oil and filters.

Full records, with history available by searching my last name on peachparts and benzworld.

Kumho tires good for another 20k.

Two minor bumps ...one in 2006 with a deer (fender repair and repaint and replaced lights with Euro versions at the time), and one two years ago on front quarter with only paint and stainless trim replacement. Paint extremely hard to distinguish from original surrounding it.

Got a company car in 2006 and have driven the SDL about 6k miles since then, only 500 miles a year in the last 2-3 years.

Everything works great ...but didn't charge the a/c last year (full disclosure).

Sheepskins since 1999 ...front and rear seats nearly perfect ..always used Lexol. No cracks in dash. Wood finish cracks on console. Steering wheel nearly perfect. Becker worked fine when I replaced it with a Blaupunkt Montreal in order to get iPod and USB connectivity. Windshield replaced once and still looks great. Carpets are perfect. Trunk carpet perfect. Driver side sill cover is cracked in a couple of spots, but still protects the sill.

Be glad to answer specific questions or take specific photos in addition to what is in photobucket link, above.

NADA ranges from about $6-10k ...condition probably warrants higher end, but I'm a reasonable guy.

Man.......you had to post that now while I'm looking for another daily driver. So tempting. Absolutely nothing drives down the road like an SDL. Oh how I miss mine.

Has the rear suspension (springs and bushings) been rebuilt?

Sorry ...thought I had posted answer.

The rear springs are stock ...no obvious droop ...haven't measured but seems like it was when I bought the car from my neighbor in 1999. Put HD (harder) Bilsteins around 2004/5.

That looks like a good example, whats leaking on the differential the input shaft seal?

A forum member should buy this 1000% better than the ebay stuff with no known history.
