1984 Mercedes-Benz 300-Series Description:

The Famed "Million Mile Motor”
This vehicle is my daily driver. I've put a lot of work into the mountings as, with age, these tend to go first. The whole thing has been remounted from
the new bumper for the front, the new engine mounts and the new exhaust mounts. I've also put a new radiator and neutral cluster in. I am the THIRD owner(ebay's autocheck is incorrect) and before me it was owned by mechanic and was a southern vehicle with almost no rust. Under mounts have rarely seen snow. Interior is as good as it gets for a vehicle this age and it comes with high end seat covers(not pictured)and floor mats.
Looks and drives like a classic.
Maintained by Docs Grrrage meticulously in Lexington SC.
This is the storied million mile motor. Vehicle has 230k miles and will do another 300k with ease.
Battery has a year warranty and is newer.
Gets 50-120 MPG due to Greasecar system installed! The veggie system is optional and can be explained for use or never used.
IT RUNS ON DIESEL.....or wvo vegetable oil. Your choice. The Greasecar system is worth 2500 alone.
Need an affordable car you can drive for a decade and turns heads? This is it.
More below:
Texas car, had faded paint and cracked dash done and over $12,000 into rebuilding front and rear suspension (Springs, shocks, bushings, ball joints, tie rods etc- always best quality parts available), Newer brakes in past year (newer rear rotors and calipers/pads, front turned rotors and new ceramic pads), Monark glow plugs and injectors, New timing chain, belts/ hoses, rebuilt and retrofitted air conditioning(may need freon pumped), new cruise control, replaced dash pad with a good used one and had car professionally repainted and added a WVO kit with auto pilot. Tires are like new matching Michelins on refinished, original Bundt wheels. I bought it in 2016 to present. Everything works...all power windows, power moonroof, power antenna, Cruise, automatic climate control (replaced that too), very nice aftermarket stereo with hands free bluetooth connection to your phone (microphone on dash) USB and aux port, cd etc. runs out very strong, transmission shifts nice and firm and it rides and handles beautifully! Ready to drive anywhere.(WVO)See for detail on the kit if you are unfamiliar- I also added a 30 plate flat plate heat exchanger to the set up. What all this does is allow you to run on either diesel or straight WVO (waste vegetable oil). I fill the tank in the trunk with clean WVO that I have centrifuged, dewatered and filtered. When I start the car it is always on diesel until the ENGINE (not oil) gets to 150 degrees, then is automatically switched to run on straight WVO (unless I override). the tank, fuel lines and filter are all heated and with the FPHE temps of the oil get to 180 in the summer and 140 to 160 in winter depending on outside temp and how long you drive. 30 seconds before you shut the car off (you can be driving) you push a button to flush the fuel lines and refill with diesel for the next cold start. The kit has always worked flawlessly and has been a real fuel, money and planet saver. If you are not watching the display on the autopilot the only way you would know you switched to WVO is engine gets a bit quieter and your exhaust begins to smell like french fries- seriously. I get 25 to 27 MPG on either diesel or WVO. on long trips I have gotten over 200 mpg of diesel (divide miles by # of gallons diesel burned, I will burn a lot of veg. oil but I don't pay for that!) I have always made sure I settled and dewatered my oil before I run it through my dieselcraft centrifuge and then pump it through a water blocking filter.(MISC)If you do not want to worry about fuel type simply unplug autopilot and it will run on just diesel and act just like a normal benz. I am meticulous with my vehicles. I hired the timing chain and some of suspension done at a top quality import shop, and had the paint done at a top notch shop also. I would not hesitate to drive this anywhere, on diesel or veggie oil- and I will include enough clean, filtered veggie for you to drive a long way! If you are familiar with these cars you know the W123 body with the 617 engine is known as possibly the the most dependable and rugged car ever built. They are also known as one of the best cars to convert to vegetable oil. With all the recent maintenance and super solid body and chassis (it never left me stranded) this example should be ready for the next 200,000 miles. Car is listed locally, I reserve right to end auction early if it sells locally.
