Car description

This is a relisting as previous bidder could not complete sale.

The Mercedes Benz 350SD was produced for 1 year only. 1991. Only 2066 were produced which makes it an extremely rare vehicle.
Nice 350 SD 6 cyl turbo diesel. This car has been in the family for the past 13 yrs but was used very little in the past 5 yrs and needs some maintenance. No longer able to perform maintenance due to health reasons.
Car spent its early years in Kentucky before going to in California 2003. Purchased in California and was shipped to Maryland by current owner in 2005. There are a stack of receipts including original window sales sticker and cylinder head gasket.

Body is straight and does not have very little dings or dents, much less than would expect for a car this age, but the gold paint seems thin and worn in places in several places, mainly hood and roof as shown in photos. Looks much better when the car is clean though, not obvious from 5 - 10 ft away. I could find no rust on the body and did not see any underneath either but car was not on a lift so I may have missed something.

Car runs great, motor and transmission seem to be in very good condition although I detect a momentary delay when shifted into Reverse. Great highway cruiser, car now has over 263K miles of mostly highway miles from a 100 mile daily commute. Sunroof works, power locks work and 3 windows go up and down. 4th window stays up. Upgraded aftermarket Alpine stereo with two amplifiers mounted in trunk.
Interior is in very good condition for its age, but not perfect. There is a tear on the driver seat back bolster and some trim need to be re glued, especially around the seat belt anchor. All weather mats are included.
Car can be, and is, driven locally but I wouldn't try driving it to California until the driveshaft carrier bearings are replaced. There is no flopping around of the driveshaft or even vibrations but they should be changed (parts included in sale).
Within the last year:

Replaced brake master cylinder, brake calipers, brake hoses, brake rotors and pads/parking brake shoesReplaced tie rodsReplaced front control armsReplaced 3 shocks. 4th is still on to-do list and is included in sale
Replaced front and rear driveshaft donutsReplaced serpentine belt tensioner shocksDrained fuel tank and installed new tank filter and pre filterNitrogen filled Michelin tires are fairly new with very little wear
Items that will need to be addressed:
Fix A/C. Compressor works but old hoses or valves probably leaking refrigerantFix Heater control. Driver side no heat in winter. Passenger side is fineReplace both driveshaft carrier bearings. New bearings in trunk and just need to be installedBelt Tensioner pulley and belt. New items in trunk, just need to be installedRear of car squats a little, probably sagging spring.Driver door mirror is a little outside its adjustment limits and may have a broken housing.Radio antenna no longer operatesDriver rear door window needs attention. Stays in up position.CV boots. They looked really dry the last time I saw them
Replace last shock absorber, new one in trunk
Car is for sale locally and we reserve the right to end this auction early if the vehicle is no longer available.
