Fire Engine Red: 1983 Mercedes-Benz 300D

This next car comes as a tip from David in Tampa who writes: I’ve had a succession of diesel Mercedes: a mint condition manual ’75 240d in burnt orange, a burgundy ’82 300d, a white ’82 300sd and finally an ’81 300sd. All bought on the cheap and all of them ready for a long second life after I fixed their issues, but I’ve never had one as nice as this. While most fans pine for a wagon, this coupe in red with enough miles to be barely broken in makes my eyes water and my legs a bit wobbly – and all for less than a used late model Corolla. Find this 1983 Mercedes-Benz 300D offered for $16,000 in Clearwater, FL via fakebro metacrap.
