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.

1967 Benelli 250 Sport Motorcycle

June 3, 2020



1967 Benelli 250S. Yes, this is a real Benelli, NOT a Wards Riverside.
5320 Original miles
I bought this in 2014 as a restored bike. Everything had been gone through…Or so I thought.
Ended up having to rebuild the engine with a new barrel, piston, rings, head, valve seats and valves. Bill Truesdale at Apex in Bensonville, IL did all the engine work. I also rebuilt the Dellorto 24mm carb with new jets, float, needle and gaskets. I also redid the ignition system and throttle and clutch cables. Have all the receipts for the work and parts.




Pretty much a new and great running classic Italian cafe racer. Vintage MotoGiro and RetroMoto eligible.
Some of the high end desirable components are the Borrani high lip alloy wheels with stainless steel spokes. Conti exhaust. Vented drum brakes. Tommaselli switch gear. Hagon shocks ad springs. CEV lights. Veglia speedo, Marzocchi forks. The beautiful hand machined details are what make this such a piece of motoring history. This little Benelli can out run the $25k Ducati Diana 250 and is arguably just as passionate.

Ride it, show it and keep it in your living room.

1993 Mercedes Benz 300 CE Cabriolet

March 2, 2020

Presented for your consideration in this pre facelift, fully loaded triple black 300 CE with rare Orthopedic seat option. Texas car purchased by current owner in October of 2011. Currently showing 109,640 miles. This car is in very good condition, has service history from Mercedes Benz Hoffman Estates, IL and Import Auto Group of South Holland, IL. Upgrades include fully rebuilt hydraulic rams with poly seals and Sportline suspension upgrades of NOS LCAs, swaybars, springs, shocks and mounts sourced from MB Germany through MB of Atlanta. It’s currently shod with 2000 E class AMG staggered 17” monoblock with polished lip wheels on Conti tires, and with the sale comes the factory 15″ 8 hole chromed wheels on Contis. (I have the original LCAs and other parts saved to return to stock if desired, and they come with the sale.) Upper wiring harness and hood insulation replaced at 85K, rebuilt throttle body added at 90k, EGR valve serviced at the same time. The single stage paint is in good shape, and was professionally corrected in 2019.

An honest MB young classic, the body, interior and undercarriage are clean and rust free. It’s been a daily driver up until 2018, and has been garaged since acquired. Starts up and drives reliably. Original top looks good, interior liner has some staining. The fabric retaining bow is cracked but I have an aftermarket piece for you to install. All lights, seat functions, windshield and headlight wipers, fog lights, top and seat belt presenters function as they should, door locks as well. Factory alarm removed. The radio is the original Becker, cassette deck works but the AM/FM is unpredictable, antenna mast goes up and down as it should. The cruise control does not work, and the blower fan bearings are beginning to squeal at low fan speeds. Some of the interior parts have been replaced, some are cracked from dry rot (Texas car) but all can be sourced through the MB Classic Center who know of this car. Of note they validate that the triple black with Ortho seats and 3.2 inline six denotes a rare variant of the car for 1993. You get the car, the second set of wheels and tires, a spare radio, original suspension parts, two keys, some interior trim pieces including the fabric retaining bow, all the receipts I can find and a wonderful and complete convertible touring car. 1993 marks the very last hand built cabriolets and the triple black option is simply stunning. Ortho seats are a big plus for any collector thinking to take this car to the next level.

1950 Morris Minor Tourer

March 1, 2020


Many of you will recognize this stunning little Morris as a staple at Fuelfed Coffee & Classics Winnetka. The owner has decided to move it forward to the next steward love and cherish as he has done.



In the owners words:

In 2011 we purchased this Morris Minor Tourer. This vehicle is the earliest model the “Series Morris Minor Export Model.” The car was widened 4″ at the last moment before production after the bumpers had been produced. To keep costs down, the bumpers were cut in half and a fillet was placed in the open space. This process continued until the end of 1950 when the original supply of bumpers was exhausted.While tens of thousands of these cars were built, there are few left today. The series MM is the rarest Morris Minor model. There are approximately a dozen known 1950 left-hand drive tourers in the world.



Before we owned our Morris, it was lovingly restored to exacting original standards by Bill and Margaret LeMaster of Oregon who owned the car for 54 years. Before that it was owned by Margaret’s father. It has the original 918cc side valve engine. All the numbers match and the production number is 59,990. The car was built on August 15, 1950 and was exported to the United States, It has a rare factory installed heater.

Since purchasing the car we have replaced the tires with new radials, rebuilt the brakes, installed a new battery (11/19), battery cables, speedo cable, fixed a gas leak in the engine compartment, installed a new gas tank with sending unit, had the petrol gauge rebuilt and added seat belts. The starter and pinion gear have been rebuilt. The worn out ring gear has been replaced. While we were at it, we replaced the clutch assembly. New gaskets were ordered and installed. The car is fun to drive and has won numerous awards at the British Car Show and other places.

$14,000 Let’s talk.

2002 Black Audi A4 Avant Quattro

October 4, 2019



Fuelfed member to member.

Here’s a very clean survivor unicorn. We’ve known this A4 Avant personally since the owner purchased it in 2010. While everyone goes for the stressed 1.8T, the 3.0 liter six (with recent timing belt) mated with the 3 pedal 6 speed makes it a strong urban ride, yet a back road ripper when you want it. Combine that with black on black leather in 4wd wagon form and you now have a proper future Fuelfed classic.



VIN# WAUVT68EX2A227349
• 3.0L V6
• 6-speed manual transmission
• Quattro full-time AWD
• Black exterior on black leather
• Very clean and rust free
• Power windows/sunroof/mirrors
• Stereo w/6-disc CD and cassette; Bose speakers
• Heated front and rear seats
• Full-size spare tire
• 122k miles

The Good
• No trouble lights
• Timing belt replaced at 90xxx miles
• Bosch ABS module rebuild done in Dec. 2017
• Service performed by authorized Bosch Service Center

Known issues
• Cat-back exhaust is on it’s way out



FOR SALE: Mike’s Mercedes C36 AMG

September 10, 2019


When it’s time to move on and you reflect on your ownership of a fast gaining classic Mercedes C36. Fuelfed member Mike B. gives his perspective.

The C36 is a special car. It represents the only time a customer could purchase a car modified by AMG at the AMG plant and backed by the warranty, quality, and reliability of Mercedes. For more model history and detailed description of the special improvements of the C36, read this great Motor Trend write up from ’95.



This C36 is a special car to me. In 1996, ~334 total C36’s were shipped to North America, ~150 in black. I purchased this C36 in April of 2013 from the 4th owner with 89,XXX miles and have used it as a daily driver 9 months of the year since then. Today its a mid-mileage car with 137,XXX miles. It’s the perfect practical car during the week, its rarity turns heads at car events, and pure nirvana on twisty roads like the famous Fuelfed Final Drive which I’ve driven the C36 twice. I lovingly use only Meguiars products to keep the black paint and interior looking great. Mechanically, the car is solid, everything works, air blows cold and hot, the harnesses and head gasket were both addressed prior to my ownership and neither have given me any issues. The car is outfitted with brand new Nitto Motivo performance all season tires on C32/CLK AMG wheels and a recent service at MBS automotive in Northbrook. The multi spoke wheels give the car a modern look. if the mono blocks are desired, they can be found easily. The Bose stereo has been upgraded to a Continental Bluetooth head unit and the rear mounted 6 disk CD changer and antenna have been disconnected. The original radio and radio code will be included with the sale. The Interior appears new except for some discoloring on the steering wheel and the shift knob and a small crack in the clear coat of the burl wood cup holder cover. The rest of the wood is in excellent condition. The original C36 branded floor mats and a set of weathertech rubber mats are included.



The car is not flawless. The shocks are leaking a little and should be rebuilt soon, and the right front ball joint should be replaced. In 2009 a minor incident is reported on the driver side resulting in some paint work, but no residual evidence of structural damage. The paint has some nicks and deeper scratches as expected with a daily driver and there are a few small rust spots appearing on the fenders. These blemishes can easily be addressed by a competent paint shop resulting in a stunning future classic!

I am a Mercedes enthusiast and have taken every effort to keep the car in excellent condition and use Mercedes or OEM quality parts during my ownership. Here is a link to my maintenance file on the car. I have a receipt for every line item not marked “home” and a copy of the Carfax report. How can I claim to love this car so much and still sell it? I purchased a red one.

1988 Porsche 959 Craigslist Find!

February 16, 2018


Could this be the ultimate Craigslist find?!

Fuelfed member Brandon C. owner of Kafein in Evanston sent this one to us.

So let’s start with this new marketing approach to selling your million dollar classic. It used to be Ebay or BringaTrailer to get exposure for a big fee. Now it appears that you go to lowbrow Craigslist for what everyone will think is a scam and you provide of course a fake name and lawyers phone number and start collecting:

1. Desperate brokers that think they can take you.
2. Tools that want to debunk the ad.
3. Parasitic flippers.

But what you’re really doing is:

1. Collecting a list for some other purpose.
2. Creating a free buzz.



About this crazy icon. We all know about the 959’s history and importance to modern automotive development. What you don’t believe is this CL 959 is the real deal. A quick run of the vin shows it was from a listing at Christies in 2004 and is/was real. It is now apparently in Portland, OR sitting in a warehouse.


The CL listing reads:

1988 Porsche 959 Comfort, Metallic Silver with Burgandy-Silver-Gray leather interior. 6323 miles in original unrestored condition. Complete with all books, manuals, car cover, first aid kit, factory service manual and tools.

This is the EX-Patrick collection 959 from the UK. Before coming to the US it went through Porsche Classic in Germany and was serviced to the tune of nearly $100k.

A Porsche 959 would be a great addition to any extensive car collection. Only 337 were built ’86-’88 plus the 6-8 more that were built in 1992-3.



And there you go. Let’s all fantasize and pontificate the truth on this unbelievable marketing approach. The Fuelfed community is large and connected. We’ve seen $50m exotic collections move through our ranks, unique barn-find Miuras and alike be unearthed, but never a stunt like this before.

Time to fire up the cigar, pour the Scotch and watch this one play out.
