This week, Canyon State Classics presents a very rare opportunity to own what might likely be the best SDL turbo diesel car currently in existence anywhere. This car was bought new at Phoenix Motor Company in December on 1986 by a local eye doctor here in Phoenix and was owned and fully maintained by him for the life of the car. He has decided to downsize at his old age of 97 years old and offered the car to us to get it sold. This car is 100% original white paint with the gray lower cladding and never even had a bumper painted. The car has a thick stack of service receipts and has always been fully upkept by the dealer and an independent Mercedes facility here in Phoenix. The interior is excellent with crack free wood and perfect gray leather. The car rides on original 15" alloys with 4 year old Michelins. We will get photos up in the next few days. Don't miss your chance to own what is widely agreed to be the one of the best built, longest lasting Mercedes vehicles of all time.

The following is a list of options as this 300 SDL is currently equipped:

-3.0L 6-Cyl Turbo Diesel -4 Speed Automatic Transmission -Ice Cold A/C -Cruise Control -Power Windows -Power Door Locks -Power Antenna -Fog Lamps -Automatic Climate Control -Original Leather Interior -Power Sunroof The body on the car is in very good condition and was extremely well maintained. The paint on the car is finished in its original color of Arctic White and has a brilliant shine and not a ding to be found. The car has been completely inspected underneath from front to back and is solid as a rock as any well cared for garaged lifelong Arizona car should be. All chrome trim, glass, and rubber seals are in great shape. The car looks as nice as the day it rolled off the Mercedes lot. It just had a full detail done at a cost of over $500 so this car looks spectacular! The car is accented by the original set of correct wheels and are wrapped in Michelin radials. The interior is in very nice original condition all around. Its life long garage storage is obvious at close examination of the crack and fade free interior. The dash and door panels are in very nice condition with zero cracks or damage to be noted anywhere. The gray leather seats are all in very good condition and look almost new, which shows the quality of leather used in this car. All wood grain is in excellent condition with only minor cracking visible around the shifter. The carpets are all very nice are not worn or damaged. All dials and controls function as they should, power windows and antenna also are fully functional. The sound system is also very nice with an upgraded aftermarket deck. All lights, gauges switches, and accessories work as they should. The trunk compartment is very clean and does have the original jack, tools, and the spare tire and wheel. This car is all there and in excellent shape with all functions and accessories working as they should. Mechanically, this SDL runs GREAT! I have owned nearly 20 80's and 90's era Mercedes vehicles, and this car blows the doors off all of them! The car starts right up and shifts smooth as silk. It drives as good now as the day it rolled of the lot. The Turbo Diesel engine is much more responsive than the normal version. It is reliable, easy to fix, and parts are readily available. The receipts show all service going back to day one. The 3.0L Diesel Mercedes workhorse engine for nearly 30 years, so you know it is just plain reliable. The suspension is very tight and feels solid even at autobahn speeds above 90mph. The car was always regularly serviced and shows it in how flawless the car drives. The car is tight and right as any low mileage car should be with no current mechanical issues. This car is
100% fully documented with EVERY service receipt going back to 1987!
