For Sale: 1985 Mercedes-Benz 300TD in Colorado Springs, Colorado

Vehicle Description

1985 Mercedes Benz Turbo Diesel.  This is the last year this model was manufactured. This car is in EXCELLENT original condition based upon classic car insurance and appraised evaluations. The car was purchased new in Phoenix, AZ by a former NASA astronaut.  The car has been in the desert southwest and Colorado and as such has no rust.  Leather seats in excellent condition.  Carpeting is like new. The only flaw in this vehicle is the top dash is cracked due to the extreme desert heat.  This was and is a common problem with classic Mercedes Benz's of the era.  The dash can be covered with a cap or dash mat.  Original accessories include third leather seat in back and rare Mercedes Cross Bars (roof).  The car is under third ownership.  I am a 50-year Mercedes Benz mechanic and have restored countless Mercedes Benz cars and wagons over the years.  This car has been mechanically restored to like new condition.  Everything on this car works as it did the day it was purchased.  All original owner's and maintenance manuals will be included.   I'm 74-years old and have too many cars and not enough drivers.  The only thing this car needs is a new owner.

The car is a driver and can be picked up and driven anywhere in the United States with confidence.  If you have any questions or need further information, please don't hesitate to contact me.  Additional pictures on request.
