1975 Mercedes-Benz 300D

Some days it seems that no stone has been left unturned when it comes to the world of collector cars, but if you dig deep enough, there are still gems to be found. The W114/W115 Mercedes-Benzes, also known as the Strich Acht (or Stroke Eight) was not a particularly flashy or eye-catching vehicle, but this was the first post war Mercedes-Benz to use an all-new chassis. This car would last through 1976, when the W123 would carry the baton into the 1980s, making a name for itself around unmatched durability. In 1974, the OM617 inline-5 diesel would appear in the form of the 300D, an engine that would carry over to the W123 and even live on through 1991 in the G-Class. This 1975 300D for sale outside of Philadelphia has under 70,000 miles on the clock and certainly looks the part, ready to log another 70,000 miles in very short order.

You are looking at an extremely nice Mercedes 300D which looks garaged, taken good care of, and regularly serviced!

3.0L DIESEL engine is mechanically sound, has lots of power and performs as you would expect it from MERCEDES. Engine compartment is clean and free of any leaks. Automatic transmission shifts smooth, no slips, no skips. The Tan exterior is in GREAT condition for the year and miles of the vehicle. The paint is shiny, glossy, and shows minimum of wear for the year and miles. Please check the pictures.

The interior of the vehicle is in great condition. Seats show almost no wear at all for the year and miles. Interior looks and smells clean. Electrical options are in working order, including but not limited to: cruise control, power windows, power antenna, ICE COLD A/C.

Tires were rotated, balanced, and still have plenty of tread life left! I test-drove the vehicle and found to be in GREAT CONDITION for its year and miles.

We don’t have many W115 comparisons to go on, but we saw a 1971 250 sell for just under $10,000 at the end of 2013. I’d suspect the condition of this car along with the stellar reputation of the OM617 diesel engine will translate into a fairly strong sale price, somewhere along the lines of where values are lying for mint condition, late model W123 diesel and turbodiesel sedans. While the shade of Berlin taxi beige and crash bumpers might seem a bit awkward, there’s a bit of simple, old school charm to this oil burner that newer Mercedes models will never be able to capture.
