Seller description


Mercedes Benz

300D Sedan

VIN: WDBAB30A9BB[hidden information]


If you’ve followed my
Ebay vehicle auctions the past ten or eleven years you’ve noticed that we’ve
gotten a fair number of great vintage Benz sedans on a regular basis.  According to the original books and records
we received with the car this great diesel boulevard cruiser was purchased new
on June 25, 1981 and came here to the Pacific Northwest 1n 1986 with its original
owner.  It is a fully compliant USA
model.  Those books and records will arrive
safely tucked away in the glove compartment when the car leaves my warehouse on
the way to the next caretaker.  You’ll
also find the un-opened complete first aid kit still there in its rear package
shelf compartment.

“Time capsule” really
is a great way to describe this Mercedes. 
It’s obviously been allowed to spend most of its life garaged because
the overall condition is truly better than most any other 4 decades-old daily
driver you’ll likely encounter.  After
spending a few minutes behind the wheel, I was sold on it.  The level of respect and care given over the
decades is pretty obvious.

Please feel free to
email, text or call me with any questions during the auction.  My direct
number is 206/[hidden information] and my name is Mark.  You’re encouraged to stop by my Auburn, WA
warehouse to check over the car and take it out on the road.  Having an
on-site buyer’s inspection done is always welcomed and encouraged.


Ever driven one of these mid-size Mercedes
with the bullet-proof 3.0-liter five-cylinder diesel engine? What a
treat!  Smooth is the word for sure. Smooth handling in the curves or on
the highway.  Comfort, style, and versatility all in one classic
ride.  I’ve always considered the models constructed through the
mid-eighties as the last hand-built, truly high-quality Mercedes and have heard
others say the same thing!  Take a look
at the photos and I’m sure you’ll agree with me.  What you see is the result
of a wash and vacuum only.  Rust? 
Please, this Mercedes HATES rust and I haven’t found any here to worry about.  Climb over, under and around this sedan, I
know you’ll come up smiling!!  As a
respected Ebay seller with many satisfied
customers, I want you to bid with confidence knowing this is a great car AND
that it’s being properly represented.


In brief, this is a clean, well-kept, smoke-free
Mercedes.  I take pride in the vehicles
offered here, feeling that you should know as much about them as possible
before bidding.  Accordingly, here’s a list of the good and also small things
possibly to be sorted out:  Hop in, turn
the key, let the glow plugs heat for about five or six seconds and the engine starts
immediately!  I’ve observed NO excessive blowby. The automatic transmission shifts through all gears, just
as it should.  I feel the car idles, runs
and drives as intended – immediate strong, steady oil
pressure, a newer battery and properly functioning charging system.  The fuel system is completely stock and has
NEVER been exposed to component-destroying biodiesel or a goofy homemade
conversion. The paint has been resprayed to the original factory white.  It is in very good condition and holds quite
a shine.  I find NO failing clearcoat,
rust spots, paint nicks, thin areas or rock chips.  The fenders, doors, rear quarters and floor
pans are all solid.  The windshield has no cracks or chips.  All four factory
wheels are clean, straight and true.  They’re wrapped with all
season radials, each with at least 70+% remaining tread.  When braking, I’ve not encountered any
binding, fade or pulling to either side.

Take another look at
the interior photos.  The dark blue MB-Tex upholstery is quite good with
the pictures giving an accurate view of condition.  Hop in and feel comfortable sitting on these seats
for hours.  The carpets are clean and solid.  No tears or holes in the headliner.  All the dash gauges are as bright and true as
the day the car left Stuttgart.  Each
appears to be working correctly as does the push button heater and fan system
work.  While complete, I assume the A/C system
will need to be gone through to be functional. 
It’s quite rare to find a vintage Benz with a still-functioning factory stereo.  This original Becker Europa push-button model
works great and is actually worth several hundred dollars all by itself.  I’ve discovered
all the windows are very up/down finicky and that the power sunroof is also
slow to move.  I always suggest easing the
strain on the electric motor and cables when closing an older Benz sunroof by
pulling it forward while operating the dash switch.  The vacuum-operated power door locks all work

Please check the photos over closely and contact me with any questions BEFORE
you place a bid!  Because of the amount
of money involved with a vehicle purchase, we reserve the right to cancel your
bid if you have negative feedback.  I also
ask that potential bidders with a
feedback rating of five or fewer
transactions on Ebay contact me before bidding. 
Finally, we reserve the right to end the auction early if the Benz is no longer
for sale or an acceptable offer has been agreed to before the end of the
auction period.  Please feel free to contact me directly as outlined
above.  I’m always very happy to work
with any shipper you choose, but you’re also welcome to do what many previous
buyers from as far away as Alaska, Arizona, the Midwest, Canada, Florida, New
York and even the Mexican Baja have done – fly in here to Seattle (I’ll pick
you up at Sea-Tac International just a few miles away) and then start a road
trip home.  Please don’t be upset if I’ve
missed a minor flaw or something unknown needs attention.  No used car is ever perfect!  Having said that, I wouldn’t hesitate to
drive this Benz long distance immediately.


A Few Additional Terms and Conditions: 

Full payment is due by cash (in person only) or certified
funds within seven business days unless prior arrangements have been made with
me.  I can accept credit or debit cards,
but I’ll first need to invoice you and ask that you cover the 3.25% fee our
processor charges us.  Please remember
you’re bidding to buy and I fully expect the winner to fulfill their Ebay
contract!  You’re not bidding to hold or
then come inspect and test-drive the car later -- You’re more than welcome to
do this before the auction ends.  I've
done my best to describe the car as honestly as possible and encourage bidders
to contact me with questions.  The information described above is based on
the observed condition when listed.  All
the photos in this listing were taken on 12/24/2019. 

If you decide to have
the Mercedes transported home, I ship vehicles regularly and have access
to the Central Dispatch transport system. 
We can post a competitive transport offer directly to scores of shippers
(usually on a COD basis) and will likely get the best rate available as there
will be no broker middle-man involved.

The car can be stored free of charge at my
location for up to two weeks after the auction ends, assuming full payment has
been received.  After that period storage
is $20 per day.  Though I have NO doubts about the vehicle’s
road-worthiness, it is being sold “as-is, where-is”.
 Sorry, the Washington State vanity plates don’t come with car.
