1982 MERCEDES-BENZ 300SD TURBODIESEL SEDAN #WDBCB20AXCB026902. (Stock #4071.) The “W-126” series turbo-diesel is well-known as one of the world’s cars with the greatest longevity. Owners reporting these cars with mileages approaching or exceeding 500,000 miles are common and, when cared-for properly, the cars seem to be virtually indestructible. As well as being extraordinarily durable, the cars are luxurious, comfortable and efficient. They are 2-ton, 5-passenger luxury cars which, when ordered with the renowned 5-cylinder turbo-charged diesel engine and 4-speed automatic transmission, can deliver 30+ mpg. They are aerodynamically cleaner, due to wind-tunnel design, than earlier cars and much less complicated than later cars. They still offer modern amenities such as cruise control, climate control, electric windows, automatic locks, electric sunroof, electric rear-window defogger, twin remote outside rear-view mirrors, Becker “Grand Prix” signal-seeking AM-FM/cassette stereo system with electric antenna, 15” alloy wheels and fog lights, along with full leather interior with beautiful zebrano wood dashboard and cabin trim. Since these cars are almost indestructible, they tend to be driven for hundreds of thousands of miles. Our car is the exception to the high-mileage status of most. A local (Tewksbury) car which has just recently turned 40,000 miles, it was purchased new for the lady of the house and driven exclusively by her-- and then only in ideal weather conditions. The car is 100% original and in near-new condition throughout. Finished in beautiful light ivory with no chips or dings and deep tobacco brown leather showing no wear, the car has near-flawless chrome, glass, headliner, wheels, engine and trunk compartments, etc. It drives fabulously well and, should someone wish to enter the car in MBCA shows, certainly has potential to be a class winner. All original manuals are present as are the original unwrapped tool kit and first aid kit. 40,811 miles. SOLD!
