Thumbs up 83 300D for sale

Western VA, Shenandoah Valley. Silver, Blue MB-Tex, Turbo, 187k, runs fine, I love it, wife hates it. I have repalced timing chain and tensioner, rack bolt, cigar hose, water pump, tach amp, cruise amp, pushbutton unit, ac compressor (new), manifold hose, other hose to condensor, receiver/dryer, expansion valve, R-134 conversion (nice and cool 44df), fan clutch, teflon fingers in swithover valve.
Basically, it's all fixed up. All service records since 1987 from PO, I have owned since last fall. Religous oil changes. No rust, everything works. Cruise is not as smooth as I like, will return amp to george murphy for replacement.

Will take some digital pics this weekend 9/1.

Asking $4300
or 540.294.8238

You can probably resolve the un-smooth cc operation by cleaning/lubing the throttle linkage. It is unfortunate that the wife hates it.

Thanks for the post. I have cleaned and lubed every joint in the entire cc/ip linkage with ATF to no avail. I have even swapped in another actuator. The failure really seems like the amp, this will be my second replacement. The first would not function at all.
