For sale is my pride and joy 1976 Mercedes 300D W115.

Due to my upcoming wedding at the end of May, I am looking to find a suitable owner for my not so stock Benz post-ceremony: looking to make the sale arrangements in May and deliver the car in June.

Viewings can be arranged in the Kitchener/Waterloo area weekday evenings and weekends, as well as in the Mississauga/Oakville area through the week.

This car has been a true joy to work on. Everything is very easy to disassemble and modify. A great project car. A head turner wherever it goes. I can't go a day without somebody wanting to talk to me about it; be prepared for plenty of attention and strangers approaching you with questions.

The details:

3.0 inline 5 cylinder diesel
New injectors
Is unbelievably reliable

3 speed automatic

Cream MBtex
Black dash and accents
Black carpets (cream carpets included)
Hidden manual air valves located in ash tray
W114 steering wheel
Large, deep sounding air horn

Full custom air ride suspension
Stock located front shocks, springs replaced with Slam Specialties RE5 air bags
Remote mounted rear monroe short shocks, springs replaced with Slam Specialties RE6 air bags
Internal bump stops on the SS bags means you can drive comfortably on good roads completely aired out
5 gallon air tank
100% duty cycle chrome VIAR 480c compressor

Main body painted two years ago in money green (Pantone 555c)
Top painted in an older Hyundai off-white, cream colour
European bumpers
European headlights with retrofitted HID projectors
W114 tail lights
New bodyline trim
New front and rear window rubber
Passenger side dorky W115 mirror deleted
Driver side dorky w115 mirror deleted and W114 mirror installed
Deleted trunk antenna
Deleted side markers front and rear
Deleted trunk emblems except for MB emblem

Your choice of one set of wheels:
1 - Two tone 16" multipiece BBS style wheel in 5x130 bolt pattern with adapters included
2 - Chrome 17" Player wire wheels (SUPER strong) with two styles of center knock-offs

No stereo to be included in sale
With *large* empty spaces behind the front kick panels, this could be a great stereo car

A 1976 300D parts car with engine and transmission included in price. Parts car also has all glass and many other useful parts.

The prize was the beans, not the car :laugh:

It does have A/C, but I never bothered to charge it because I prefer to drive with the windows down. So I couldn't tell you the state of the A/C system, sorry. But it's there if the next owner wants to try it.
