300D 1983

Title Status --
Interior Color Blue


This 1983 Mercedes-Benz 300D is part of the earned legacy of ultra-robust German-engineered sedans. So when you can get a strong turbodiesel classic that\'s also loaded with all the best features - including cold-blowing A/C - you\'ll soon realize this is an affordable icon with everything you want.

The 300D is the right car for the classic market. It has the larger engine of the diesel series, and a few more premium touches. Mercedes was truly the king of understated style during this era with its crisp lines that had smooth rounded edges. And the way the rub strip runs like a nearly unbroken line as it goes down both sides and wraps around all highlights how straight the panels are. It\'s a testament to both the build quality of a Mercedes and the care that this sedan has received over the years. The overall impression that you get is a sturdy car that has an attractive but driver-ready style, and that\'s the full theme of this diesel hauler.

The interior is a full blue package, right down to the carpeting. This has the space to be a practical classic, and family and friends will happily come along for the ride because this upholds the Mercedes reputation for premium motoring. That means the nice comfort features, like power windows, wood accenting, fold-down armrests, and cold-blowing air conditioning. You may update some details like the padding of the driver\'s seat or restoring the sunroof, but those are more minor details that never take away from the premium cruiser feeling. There\'s even an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo with Bluetooth so you can have the best in modern driving music.

Under the hood is what makes the 300D so desirable. The Mercedes diesel motors are the true high mileage kings. They have one of the best reputations for robustness in the industry, and the 3.0-liter turbocharged unit seen here was one of the most powerful versions they ever offered for the series. These have never been speed demons, but you already knew that. Their true value is as an effortless cruiser, and this one even comes with good maintenance records. You also have cruise control, power steering, and a four-speed automatic transmission with highway-friendly overdrive. And because this was up to the autobahn standards, you also have the confidence of a fully independent suspension and four-wheel power disc brakes.

You already know these are the best at mixing luxury and robustness in one vintage package. So if you\'re looking for a classic that still is ready for your daily life, don\'t miss this deal. Call today!!!
