For Sale: 1984 Mercedes Benz 300CD with 86k Original Miles

September 2, 2021

Probably one of the lowest mile 300CDs in the country with 86K original miles. Beautiful rust free turbo diesel coupe. This an all original and unmolested classic with me being the third owner. The second owner being from 1986 to 2020.

The 300CD is 100% original less the new wheel paint.
The drivers seat has a small blemish where I believe the leather was repaired. The horsehair is good. The rear seats have no rips and are good. The rear seat tops have not split but are getting hard for the sun.
Everything works including the AC. The rear windows are slow to go down (old grease) so I don’t use them.
The OE Becker radio works as does the power antenna.
There are three dash cracks as they all get.
All jack points are excellent and zero rust.
The car smells great with no odd smells. This is important to me.

Basics: 1984 300CD. Silver with blue leather. 86k miles. WDBAB53A0EA091447

Recent work completed in 2020:

1. Trans flush and filter. 2. Brakes. 3. Tires. 4. Repaint the rims in MB silver. 5. Valve adjustment. 6. New battery. 7. Diesel purge, oil change and detail.

The silver paint is all factory original with zero rust. There are a few chips from use. There are 3 very faint dings that I will have PDR removed (see gallery below).

I bought this for my distance classic to drive to our Wisconsin and Michigan Fuelfed events. The car is truly a pleasure to drive in a gentlemanly way. It’s dialed-in and has brisk acceleration and can cruise at 80mph (cruise control works).
I have put 1460 miles on it. It’s an honest car and that has been well maintained it’s whole life.

Homecoming

July 25, 2021

Yes this morning was a big homecoming for Fuelfed the club, Winnetka the birth place of Coffee and Classics and members able to reunite in a grand way. But this morning was bigger than that for these two. You see, John (left) and Hank were best friends in high school and went their own ways shortly there after. Both are Fuelfed members not knowing each was too. In talking with Hank and him mentioning his history on the Nothshore and Winnetka as well as his friend from long ago, we were able reunite these two with hugs and tears ensuing. Fuelfed has always been about its members and incredible moments like this are what it’s all about.

Despite the heavy skies and rain early this morning, #fuelfedmembers still made their way to the streets of Barrington. Interestingly, most were British. Probably rainy comforts of the #motherland.
