1983 300SD

Renntag’s PeachParts Mercedes-Benz Forum Photo Gallery
1983 300SD
Our current 300TD has treated us so well, we wanted another diesel benz. We set out shopping for a later chassis, but a family member made us an offer we couldnt refuse as they prepared to move into something newer.

Here we have our 1983 300SD.

Typical 300SD (in my limited experience).
Fully loaded, 200K miles, needs TLC.
Dash lights, A/C and right rear window inop.
After a thorough "going through", I am sure I will find more.

Planning to make this my commuter. When you travel 150+ miles a day, you need a little Mercedes luxury.

The body is straight and everything is intact.
Paint on the hood is faded so it is going to need a make over. Will she be Black, Silver, or....(?), who knows. The current Grey does nothing for me and unless I learn that this car is something special, I am not worried about originality. My last 300SD was identical, so I am guessing nothing special or unique here.

Stay tuned.

Benz #3.  With a little work, hopefully this will be the next commuter. Think it'll buff out?    LOL.    New paint is in order. The interior appears to be clean. Not yet sure why the console is loose. ...and on the 7th day he rested.

RUN-EM Hyundai is partially owned by Mercedes Benz. But labor rate is probably lower and may get more rub out time after painting. Mercedes has probably not sued them over that claim as they own part of the company. 11-01-2011
Renntag This car will be removed from the gallery soon. It has been relegated to parts car status after acquisition of a much nicer SDL. Repaint project will commence soon for the 300TD. 10-31-2011

Renntag Maybe when compared to this 300SD and my last 300SD, they are correct. They both had the same faded hoods. 03-16-2010
oldsinner111 You know? Hyudia claims its paint is better than Mercedes. 03-16-2010
