for auction is this beautiful 1979 mercedes-benz 300sd turbo diesel..
the sd is not perfect if you look
at the photos. the rear seat bottom cushion has the typical mercedes horsehair issue and the padding with need to be redone. there are some rust bubbles coming through on the drivers rear wheel house. the vacuum door locks don’t work which means there is a vacuum leak in one of the door-lock elements. despite the vacuum leak then engine shuts off fine. i sold this car on ebay 2 years ago to an american couple stationed in germany. the wife flew in and paid for the benz and also asked me to store the car for 8 months until they returned for good to the united states. 12 months the wife came and paid for storage. she was going to take the car to ms. we installed new brakes before her arrival and did a view other things, but then when she arrived to pick it up there was no drop off in our area for her rental car. as they told me later she dropped the car off at a friends house in virginia beach where it sat for another 8 months. 4 months ago the husband contacted me and informed that they are now stationed in hawaii and if i could sell the benz for them. he had it towed to my shop because one of the brake lines developed a leak while being parked. i also noticed the heater blower was no longer working in any of the positions except on defrost. we will fix all that before the winning bidder takes the car.
on a good note this 300sd had the ac servo upgrade installed that replaces the heater servo and amplifier. a common issue on pre-1981 mercedes cars. last time we worked on the car to do the brakes the ac blew ice cold. i know once we fix the heater blower the ac will work just fine. the sunroof works flawlessly. the motor starts on the first turn and runs very nicely. the transmission also shifts smooth through all the gears. i’m keeping the reserve low, but please understand i can’t give them away. so if you decide to make an offer, be reasonable!!

Item location: Hampton, Virginia, United States
