FOR SALE - Converted 1983 Mercedes Benz 300D in L.A.

Selling my WVO converted 1983 Mercedes-Benz 300D. The veg oil system is in great shape but the rest of the car needs a lot of work. Converted by Dave at Fossil Free Fuels in Braddock, PA. Love this car, but i'll be traveling out of the country for a bit and don't have the money to fix it up or the time to find another Mercedes to put the veg oil system in.

Perfect for someone looking for a reliable WVO system to install in another car or someone willing to put a lot of work into this vehicle as is.
