1983 Mercedes-Benz S-Class 300SD 302,000 miles

The car has been with me for over 16 years and has served me faithfully. I have too many projects and no longer have to make a 100-mile round trip for work every day. So, it is time to find her a new, good home. Listed below are the things I can think of that are beyond normal maintenance. The car is being sold as-is. No implied or any other kind of warranty.


New radiator and oil cooler

Interior wood

New heater thermovalve (Updated Klima valve)

Rear end from ’86 300SDL (also have the original)

New driver and passenger front seatback leather

4 wheels in great condition – original take offs

Tires are OK for summer driving

Driver seat spring

Power front seat switches

Power brake booster

Vacuum pump

Added 3rd brake light but not permanent and may be removed

Extra bulbs added for brake lights

Added fuel heater that uses hot coolant



Small cracks in dash by speakers

Material is coming off the post where the front seat belts are located. Not torn.

Top of rear seat the seam pulled apart. Not ripped.

Small rust spot on trunk lid by handle

Small rust spot on left front fender by trim

AC works but compressor is making some noise

Burns a little oil but mostly has the usual oil leaks. Consumption is around 1 qt/2500 miles.

Hit a deer head on and car was totaled. Repaired by body shop and has a salvage title.
