Once again we’re plucking a Mercedes diesel from our forums — in this case, it’s a 1985 Mercedes-Benz 300.
This California-model car is actually based in Eugene, Oregon. The seller says the car has been “impeccably” maintained and that the service records all the way back to the original purchase are available.
Recent maintenance includes oil, fuel, coolant, and transmission service, new front brake pads, new rear axle CV boots, new differential oil, and a valve adjustment.
The mileage is high — over 269K — and there is some minor rust.
There are spare parts available.
If you want to pick up an old diesel Mercedes-Benz for a relatively low price, the ask is $4,700.
