1980 mercedes-benz 300cd coupe.
This car was bought new by the original owner in California in 1979. One owner until I bought it a short while ago.
I was looking for a very long time to find the coupe with low miles and one owner.
It drives flawlessly and has nothing wrong with engine, transmission, axles, etc...(the rear right has been updated to the more robust w126 design (this is the wheel that takes most of the torque.)
this is will be one of the cleanest mercedes benz diesel you will see on the road. Purchased as a european delivery vehicle in 1979 (we have euro delivery documentation) receipts from 79. original purchase documentation included. original build sheet included with sale. 105,600 original miles. It is an absolute stunner. the interior had wool sheepskins (included) covering the seats from day 1.(they were removed to show the quality of the seats. the brakes have been serviced recently, oil changed. the A/C blows cold (I have converted the system to r134 although the type of seals used are backwards compatible with R12). the dash has also been covered and shows no signs of wear. the engine runs strong and starts every time. the headliner looks brand new. This vehicle was ordered without a sunroof (the sunroofs in this model are notoriously leaky and require copious amounts of TLC) (plus the non sunroof models have more headroom for you tall folk. Even the trunk area of this car is perfect, no scratches no hols in the carpeting . there is one dent in the rear left of the vehicle, which i opted not to paint because every bit of paint on this car is original german, and is built to last. The suspension drives straight and the original struts are in great condition. This car has been garaged since day one only until recently when i have taken it out to revive it.
windows work. (there is one area of the driver's glass that has some kind of vertical scrapes on it (1"x12"), i suspect it was from a locksmith.
the cruise control probably doesn't work and probably never will. I have never seen one work on this generation car.
the original becker radio works nicely.
speakers all sound good.
antenna raises and lowers every time.
I rebuilt all of the locks and tumblers as they had locked up from being stored ( the original key code remains and any MB dealer can cut a spare for about $25.
two master keys and one valet are included (valet key will not open glove box or trunk)
even the floor mats are pristine. (they had a second set covering them.)I believe that there is a center piece of carpeting missing from the center console in between the seats. the dealer says it is no longer available, however i found a few places that sell such items. I can guide you in the right direction.
the tires are a bit tired. pun intended. although I would feel comfortable driving on them, they could use to be replaced.
The suspension rides nicely. original struts.
the brakes pedal is tight and firm. The person the replace them last put a cheaper set of pads on the front and the do squeak from time to time. put an original set of pads and rotors on and that will go away.
the interior is near perfect. I managed to find a small tear on the driver's seat. i suspect it was recent.
the blinkers work
the brake lights all work perfectly
headlights/fogs work
3rd brake light works
windshield is original and in good condition
windshield washers work.
clock keeps time
odometer and speedometer work nicely
all gauges work
wheels have been reconditioned and look great.
manual mirrors are clear and work nicely
no leaks!
all original paint!
all documentation included.The car does not leak a drop and has a pristine interior. no cracks on any of the wood details.The perforated black seats have almost zero wear and look new front and backAll power windows work and seal nicely.this car has the original engine.this car also has the naturally aspirated motor which does not leak any oil unlike it's turbo cousin.There is a brand new battery
original Bekker radio
Zero rust on the car's body and wheelbase This car has a little 3x12 bump in the rear end (this moment was when grandma lost her license)
original wheels are in mint condition. Tires have a few cracks in them but have lots of material left in them.
Mercedes beautiful original silver paint is still on the entire body and looks amazing for the age. Everyone thinks the car has been restored but it has not.
Turn signal works, wipers work (although the first stage does not want to activate(may need a new switch, heating works, defrost works, emergency lights work, all lights work, horn works, ac works and has been converted to r134a the o rings are manufactured from viton and are downward compatible with R12. HVAC blows nicely and all switches work.
I really did not want to sell the car but need to buy an SUV for practicality reasons.
if you're looking for an untouched, low mileage original 300 coupe with no accidents- this might be the car for you.
Car has never broken down, ever!
Car has a clear and clean California title
You must arrange for pick-up yourself. Car must be picked up within one week of payment.
