1982 300SD W126 Diesel in Manila beige with Palomino interior. With over 200,000 miles on it, I drove this car from California to Texas it made it with out overheating or anything going wrong with it. I'm working on getting it back to its old glory.
I bought it for $1600 replaced guide rods, all filters, valve cover gasket, turbo elbow seal, battery, brake pads, shocks (bilstein), air housing bracket. The front seats need some work as they are ripped and on the driver's seat a spring is broken. I have found all parts I have needed for the interior from junk yards, its my daily driver.
My plans are to keep it stock except for the rims and audio system which have been upgraded both head unit and speakers (Alpine and Infinity). I will paint it as well (same color).
With good maintenance and care these diesel cars will last well into 500,000 to 1 million miles easy!
