1987 Mercedes-Benz 300-Series Additional Info:

Vehicle is being resisted on eBay due to non paying previous auction “winner’. Could I ask anyone who has a previous history of less than 10 items being either purchased or sold on eBay to contact me but more importantly, if you don’t have the funds to purchase this item then please don’t bid on it.
VIN number is:WDBEB93DOHF024924
For some reason eBay is not accepting this VIN number. This VIN is the number on the car, on our insurance forms, the Title and the registration card.

One of only 2,679 Mercedes W124 300TD wagons imported into the USA . This model car was only brought into the USA by Mercedes for one year (1987). Very hard to find one and even harder to get one in this condition. It has an inline 6 cylinder turbo diesel engine paired with a 4 speed automatic gearbox. Vehicle also has working cruise control. HEVAC works fine and was recently serviced with R-12. I have a folder full of receipts for work done on the car. Transmission has been completely rebuilt by AAMCO on 11/13/2020 and comes with an 18 month transferable warranty.

Everything works on the car. The vacuum system was pressure tested for leaks and faulty hoses/connectors replaced. All the air hoses to the HEVAC pods have been replaced with new ones. Vehicle is stored in garage under car cover when not in use. A rarity on these vehicles is that all three of the rear seat headrests are still installed. The self leveling works perfectly. Car rides like it’s on air. Air intake pipe between air filter and engine was removed and cleaned of oil and grime buildup then replaced.
I would rate the condition of the interior as a 9/10. There are absolutely no marks, tears or scratches inside. Carpets have always had mats over them. Interior roof lining is very clean, and as mentioned in earlier description, the interior trims were removed and repainted. There is minor hairline cracks on veneer around gear shift. I would refurbish this if my daughter were to keep the car. It’s minor but it can be noticed. There are 4 sets of keys included in the sale. The car also has a set of Coco mates in front and rear. Seats have no marks, tears or wear marks on them. Rear facing cargo seats work as designed and are in ‘like new’ condition. All hinges have been greased/lubed.
The exterior is also a 9/10. Paint is perfect and there is no body rust visible anywhere. No rust in arches, under body, doors or engine bay. Wheels are new and tires have less than 1500 miles on them. Glass is perfect on front and sides but the rear window has some scuffing from an old wiper rubber that was not replaced in time and left some marks. All exterior lights/lenses are perfect with no scratches or cracks on them. Front and rear wipers work as does the windshield washer sprayer. Headlight wipers work. Fluid for windshield was completely drained and replaced with new windshield wash liquid. Instrument cluster bulbs were replaced with LEDs making display crystal clear at night and giving sharp appearance when illuminated. All electrics work. As mentioned in bullet points, 5 of the 6 HEVAC air control ‘pods’ were replaced. The 6th one works fine and did not need attention. If you know Mercedes you will be familiar with this system. If a pod fails the air direction or control of air flow from vents will be lost. Repair is a considerable expense as it involves removal of dashboard.
Engine starts and runs fine thanks to the new glow plugs, injectors and fuel lines. Car just came from auto shop where it had a complete going over and got a clean bill of health. The oil and filter were changed on 10/15/2020. The odometer works but the trip meter does not. The car will not be driven once it is listed on eBay. We are selling this car because my daughter no longer has a need for a station wagon and would like a smaller ‘more practical’ vehicle. As the wheels that are on it are not original I will be including in sale the 5 original wheels that originally came with the car. These will require refurbishment to bring them up to the cars standard. They appear to be just dirty and aged.
This car is a head turner and gets many positive comments. The sound of the diesel engine is strong and assured and it comes with a folder full of receipts for work carried out on it. Vehicle comes with the original brochure that came with the car, owners manual, Mercedes Benz stainless steel VIN card and full spare tool kit. Vehicle is also equipped with an electric heater block mod which will heat engine coolant up on cold days/nights which In turn allows for easy starting, less wear on engine as well as instant warm air once engine gets started.
Vehicle has no reserve but listing price is reflective of the cars rarity and condition. The vehicle is being presented by me as best I can. I am not a car dealer or mechanic. I have maintained this, along with all my vehicles to the highest possible standard. I have a huge folder full of receipts. I would not hesitate to drive this car across America. However, it is being sold AS IS WHERE IS. Understand that the vehicle is 33 years old and will have its flaws and anything can go wrong with it at any time. I love driving this car when my daughter comes to visit and we will certainly miss it.
