hey ya'll thanks for looking, I'm selling my Red 1981 Mercedes Benz 300td wagon. It is super reliable cruiser by no means fast but she will get you there with little complaints.

The goods:
- She runs on diesel gets about 22mpg, she can also run on reclaimed vegetable oil (in the summer) or biodiesel.
- Lots of room! I have the back seats down in the picture but with them up, you could fit a total of 5 comfortably more would definitely fit. I have slept in the back on camping trips could easily fit a twin mattress in the back.
- Reliability: these engines are widely praised to have to most solid engines made on the earth! the engine will be running long after the body has rusted away. I have taken it on long road trips: oly - north cal, oly - kalispell, mt, and oly - anacortes many many times.
- aftermarket radio so you can hook in your own Mp3 player
- new tires: back have about 8 months on them, and fronts are about a year old. you also get 2 snow tires for the rear drive tires and chains.
- super sweet manual sunroof
- new glow-plugs
- classic comfy seats of the MB luxury but sorry you don't get my sheepskin.

the bads:
- gremlins: some little beasties have messed with the non-critical electrical systems. the only window that rolls down is the drivers side which is the most important. the rear window wiper sometimes works but most of the time just gets stuck. the heater doesn't blow but does still passively heat the car and defrost it just takes longer. most of these thing are shorts in the system due probably to water infiltration. one of the rear brake lights doesn't work and the back up lights seem to only work occasionally.
- leaks: during real heavy rain water is getting in from somewhere probably the sunroof that's why I tape it up in winter/spring.
- the noise: on some of my longer road trips there is the thumping/clicking noise that comes from the front right wheel area. It only happens on long days of driving after slowing down then speeding back up, I think has to do with a parking brake that heats after a long day of driving and then touches the rolling tire. It does not seem to me to do anything and be causing any harm. I am 99% sure that isn't coming the engine so that is really good.
- rust- what car from the 80's doesn't have rust. this one's in the driver and passenger side foot area strictly surface and cosmetic.
- the Odo is broken, was broken when I bought it. It is stuck on 176000 and some change if I were to guess it probably has near 300,000 mile on it.

The price is negotiable just be reasonable please I know what this car is worth. I am open to trades for anything that can handle snow well. subarus, toyota tercel, honda wagons, and anything with 4wd or AWD.
Title in hand, Willing to haggle, Cash only please.
