1984 Mercedes-Benz 300D in LaVergne Tennessee

 Vehicle Description
When gas prices spiked a few years ago, cars like this 1984 Mercedes-Benz 300D were suddenly very much in demand. Virtually indestructible and capable of pulling down some rather impressive fuel economy, theyre always the first go-to vehicles when times get tough. The fact that you can enjoy Mercedes-levels of luxury while you save money is simply icing on the cake. With beautiful original paint on the exterior and a nice original interior to boot, this vintage Merc is the one they told you to look out / br / Yes, wed call these desirable, if not collectable, because good ones never remain on the market for long. This one shows 96,371 miles, and since Mercedes odometers go to a million before rolling over, well let you make of it what you will. The W123 series cars were notorious for rusting in northern climates, but this one has lived its entire life in Tennessee, so the sheetmetal is as well-preserved as the mechanicals. The Light Ivory paint is extremely well kept factory enamel that still has very good shine and shows only a few very minor signs of use but no injuries or problems lurking under the skin. The chrome and stainless trim remains very good as well, including the familiar Mercedes-Benz grille, which is still one of the most recognized symbols of wealth and quality on the road. br / br / The tan MB-Tex interior is in excellent shape, which shouldnt be a surprise because the stuff wears like iron. The bucket seats show no signs of wear and there arent many cars that are better long-distance cruisers than this, as long as your bladder can withstand the miserly fuel economy and range. It is still a Mercedes, after all, so you get a beautiful burled walnut instrument panel and console, a giant steering wheel, and big, round gauges that should look familiar to anyone who has driven one of these in the past few decades. Theres also a Becker AM/FM radio still nestled in the dash, which is an amazing testament to this Mercs originality and preservation. Theres also automatic climate control, a sunroof, tilt wheel, and power windows and lock, so this affordable Benz is hardly stripped down. Plenty of room in back and the spacious trunk will handle all the luggage you can / br / The 300D nomenclature denotes a diesel 3.0 liter inline-5 (yes, five cylinders), which was a mainstay of Mercedes-Benz production for many years. If you see a Mercedes in Morocco pulling taxi duty, this is whats powering it. Indestructible, easy to maintain, and with fuel economy that will rival the best of todays cars, its all about having your cake and eating it too. Theyre legendary for their durability and should run practically forever with basic maintenance. This one has been very well maintained along the way, but youll probably find that oil changes and an occasional wash and wax are all it asks. It starts easily and idles with a familiar diesel clatter, and while the horsepower and torque figures are modest, this car will cruise all day at 75 MPH with the engine just purring away up front. You can also thank the 4-speed automatic transmission and tall rear gears, which certainly help in the economy department, and the suspension and brakes make it feel lively yet comfortable on the road. Like I said, there arent many better road trip vehicles. Standard 14-inch chrome wheels look great and carry relatively recent 195/70/14 Yokohama / br / A Mercedes is always a Mercedes, but when its so affordable and will pay you back with astounding fuel economy and reliability, you can count it as a double win.
