1981 Mercedes-Benz 300D Diesel Limousine Tobacco Brown


1981 Mercedes-Benz 300D Limousine, 72,000 Original Miles, Three Owners from New

This 1981 Mercedes-Benz 300D Limousine is an example of the M-B Phalcon series of executive limousines manufactured by the M-B Pullman Corporation and represents an era of automobiles that will never be seen again…

The condition of this car is highly original and very well preserved. The car shows very few signs of age and shows 72,000 miles on the odometer, which I believe to be original. It has had 3 owners from new, which includes the present owner. VIN # is WDBAB30A0BB238784.

BODY:

This Mercedes is finished in the original tobacco brown color with which it left the M-B Pullman. All of the body panels are ripple and dent free.

The finish is in nice overall condition and retains a shine, obviously the result of the car being garage kept and well cared for all of its life.

The glass and seals are also in nice condition and there are no leaks evident.

INTERIOR:

The interior is trimmed in the original tan Mercedes-Benz tex vinyl in the front driver’s compartment. The seating areas are in nice original condition, as are the door panels, dashboard, and console. The front carpet is also in original condition, and has not been damaged by any effects of sun, spills or rodent damage.

All of the accessories up front are in working order and all of the gauges function as they should.

The rear compartment interior is in beautiful condition and is exactly the way it came from the M-B Pullman factory, with all of the accessories in place and in working order. The seating areas are all in beautiful condition, as you can see in the photos.

All of the windows are in good working condition. The door locks also work as well. The trunk area appears in nice original and preserved condition, and the spare tire, wheel, and trunk accessories are all present and in place.

UNDERCARRIAGE:

The underside of the car is in line with a 72,000 mile car and is well preserved, with a few signs of age. As shown in the photos, there is some surface rust to some components, but overall, the undercarriage is in very solid condition.

ENGINE AND TRANSMISSION:

All of the mechanical aspects of the car have been inspected and repaired, if necessary. The motor, as well as the transmission, are original to the car, with all numbers and codes matching.

All of the engine, transmission, and differential fluids have been changed, all belts have been replaced, the cooling system flushed out, and a new battery installed. The fuel system has also been completely cleaned and updated, and there are no issues with starting and running the vehicle.

The following mechanical work was also performed on the car recently:

  • Front and rear brakes were replaced
  • Air conditioning system re-charged
  • Replaced the alternator
  • Oil Change
  • Transmission service
  • Differential service
  • Complete engine tune-up

ENGINE COMPARTMENT:

The engine bay is completely original, with all components in operational condition. Every detail of the engine compartment is well preserved. There is minor wear to certain painted surfaces that has occurred due to age, but overall, it is very presentable.

TIRES AND WHEELS:

The tires are the correct size and style for the wheels, which are also original to the car. If the new owner does intend to drive the car, the tires have plenty of life on them.

The wheels and wheel covers are in good original condition and have the typical age related wear associated with them.

OVERALL DRIVING IMPRESSIONS:

This 300D limousine runs as any car with these original miles should! The 3-liter 5-cylinder diesel power plant runs and accelerates smoothly and is surprisingly quick for a diesel engine vehicle with automatic transmission.

The car runs and drives with no trouble. As stated at the top of the description, the car has had all of the necessary service recently performed including oil change, tune up, installation of new battery and brakes, and gearbox and differential service, and needs absolutely nothing to drive, show and enjoy. All of the mechanical aspects of the car work as they should.

PLEASE NOTE:

This 1981 Mercedes-Benz 300D Limousine still retains all of its original components and is a nice well preserved driver/cruise night show car. This means the engine, transmission, rear end, etc. are original to the car. All of the numbers, markings, etc., are correct. It is an original and very special car, that, as evidenced by the mileage, has been driven very sparingly during the last 33 years.

There is absolutely nothing that needs to be done to this car to drive it occasionally and enjoy it as a showpiece.
