Gorgeous 2 Owner Pebble Beach California Car. 77,000 Miles WOW!
This week Canyon State Classics brings to market one of the best documented and best kept 1985 Mercedes-Benz 300SD Sedans on the Planet. This car is very special in several ways. It is a two owner car which has lived a very pampered life here in cool pines of Monterrey and Pebble Beach California. It also had a MSRP of over $45,000 when new and is fully loaded! This was THE big boy car to own in the 80's. This car is CARFAX Certified to be accident free and actual miles.

This car was bought brand new at Stahl Motors on June 29th 1985 by original owner Mrs. W.C. Mills of Pebble Beach, CA. Located in Historic Downtown Monterey since June 1957, Mercedes-Benz of Monterrey has the distinction of being the 1st authorized Mercedes-Benz dealership in California and 2nd in the United States of America. She proudly owned and drove this car until 1999 when she was no longer able to drive and passed on ownership of this beauty to Mr. D. Umbaugh also of Pebble Beach. This car was treated with white gloves and always garaged and had custom covers on the dash, package tray, wood panels, you name it! He even had a neatly trimmed piece of tin foil under the dash mat to make absolutely sure no UV rays touched his baby. It really is an astonishing story of pride of ownership. This car was his pride and joy and always received the best care and service and now it is your chance to become part of this cars wonderful history. Over $4,000 was recently spent on complete front end rebuild, all new brakes, and complete fluid flush. Don't miss your chance to own the nicest 300SD offered on eBay in a long time!

The following is a list of options as this 300SD is currently equipped:

-3.0L 5-Cyl Turbo Diesel

-4 Speed Automatic Transmission

-Ice Cold A/C

-Cruise Control

-Power Windows

-Power Door Locks

-Euro H4 Glass Headlamp Conversion (Originals Included)

The body on the car is in very good condition and was extremely well maintained. The paint on the car is finished in its original color of Astral Silver and has a brilliant shine and not a ding to be found. The car retains all original paint other than front and rear bumpers which were just freshened up. The car has been completely inspected underneath from front to back and is solid as a rock as any well cared for garaged lifelong California car should be. All chrome trim, glass (Original windshield), and rubber seals are in great shape. The car looks as nice as the day it rolled off the Mercedes lot. It just had a full detail done at a cost of over $500 so this car looks spectacular! The car is accented by the original set of correct wheels which are wrapped in Dunlop radials. Just a note...pictures were taken with car running which causes antenna to go up. Antenna is functional and goes down and up when radio is turned on.

The interior is in very nice original condition all around. Its life long garage storage is obvious at close examination of the crack and fade free interior. The dash and door panels are in very nice condition with zero cracks or damage to be noted anywhere. The black leather seats are all in very good condition and look almost new, which shows the quality of leather used in this car. All wood grain is in excellent condition with no cracking visible around the shifter. The carpets are all very nice are not worn or damaged. The car also has BRAND NEW Mercedes OEM floor mats. All dials and controls function as they should, power windows and antenna also are fully functional. The sound system is also very nice with the original Becker Grand Prix sound system. All lights, gauges switches, and accessories work as they should. The trunk compartment is very clean and does have the original jack, tools, and the spare tire and wheel. This car is all there and in excellent shape with all functions and accessories working as they should.

Mechanically, this SD runs GREAT! I have owned nearly 20 80's and 90's era Mercedes vehicles, and this car blows the doors off all of them! The car starts right up and shifts as it should. It drives as good now as the day it rolled of the lot. The Turbo Diesel engine is much more responsive than the normal version. It is reliable, easy to fix, and parts are readily available. The receipts show a lot of major work done around 60k including replaced transmission fluid, new injector pump, new shocks, new brakes, and fully overhauled front suspension. The 3.0L Diesel Mercedes workhorse engine for nearly 30 years, so you know it is just plain reliable. The suspension is very tight and feels solid even at autobahn speeds above 90mph. The car was always regularly serviced and shows it in how flawless the car drives. The car is tight and right as any low mileage car should be with no current mechanical issues. This car is 100% fully documented with EVERY service receipt going back to 1985!

The car will include all original books, huge stack of receipts, original spare, jack, tools, multiple keys, as well as the BRAND NEW (Last Set in Existence from MB) floor mats!

All in all, this is THE cleanest and nicest Diesel that I have had the privilege of being associated with. It has been professionally maintained and truly loved by its previous owners. This Mercedes is a fantastic car for the price and includes every option offered in this car. Any further questions please call Jon at 480-703-2337. The car is located in Sunny Scottsdale, Arizona.
