For sale is a 1984 Mercedes 300D Turbo Diesel with a "greasecar" kit installed and working well for many thousands of miles. This is not the prettiest Mercedes out there, but it is a workhorse that runs great on WVO. The mileage is about 290,000 but for those of you that know, there's a lot of life left. The car cruises easily at highway speeds and shifts smoothly. It currently gets around 25 mpg. It has the standard greasecar kit with the 13 gallon tank in the spare tire compartment.
All the windows and door locks work. It has a working aftermarket stereo. All the lights work. I have replaced the starter and the muffler/tailpipe. I have an extra cv axle and water pump that goes with the car. The front brakes were done in Feb 2009 and the battery was replaced shortly before that.
The car does need some work. Most importantly, the engine mounts need to be replaced. The car has a rocking idle especially on diesel. It is much quieter on veggie. It has an oil leak at the valve cover gasket. The seal between the driveshaft and the rear differential is leaking. The horn doesn't work but I have a new set of horns and the wiring that go with the car. The flashers don't work either.
The body has some rust at each of the wheels. There is a dent in the passenger side fender. The driver's seat has a rip and the dash has the expected cracks. The rest of the interior is in good shape and the original first aid kit is still in the car.
This car is currently near Missoula, Montana and I am not interested in delivering it any substantial distance. If you have any questions or want to arrange to see the car, please call 530-643-0857 and ask for Josh.
