Car description

I hope this goes to atrue environmentalist, I have had a lot of fun running this for years but am old now too.

A Rare 1986 Mercedes 3.0 litre 6 cylinder turbo-diesel, 127,997 mis, 2006 greasecar conversion, auto, sunroof
Bullet-proof Mercedes 6-cylinder diesel - one of the most reliable high-mileage cars ever made. Professional greasecar conversion done in 2007 ( www.greasecar.com ). Fully capable of running either on diesel or filtered used vegetable oil (grease), a reliable recycled source of free fuel.
Car is in good shape runs well and is a reliable starter and daily runner. Interior leather has no tears or damage and includes 2 fitted sheepskin seatcovers for the front. Nice CD player. It is a strong runner in the mountains due to turbo and diesel compression. Will run at 90mph all day long and get 21mpg - 28 on the highway. Grease fuel system includes annular heated grease fuel lines that go to a tank mounted in the trunk spare tire recess. Grease filter is located in the engine compartment on the left side (see photos) and spare filters are included. Switches for Diesel/grease and purge cycle as well as gauges for grease temp and grease fuel level are located on the lower dash (see photo). Professional greasecar kit installation and it runs very well on grease and is easy to use. All locks and windows work perfectly, all lights and signals too. Air bags, seatbelts, ABS, good rubber all around, nice alloy wheels, and a full-sized spare.
Fuel filtering equipment is included. Also a Yakima rack with attachments for skis/snowboards and bikes is included.
What doesn't work-
Odometer broke long ago- actual mileage is unknown but likely twice that shown.
Heater, A/C, and sunroof do not work. Could be repaired if you want to.
Small Dent driver's -side passenger door, paint discolored around diesel fuel cap. Otherwise straight.
Crack in windshield and the dash.
Old paint is not very shiny.

This is the cockroach of all cars, it may run forever and has never let me down. A few things don't work and it is an old car, but it runs great and on free fuel. It is a little clunky in town but runs like a champ on the highway. Very comfortable car. Local pick-up only (Denver), will not ship, but available for inspection.
