Baz Dreamcars proudly presents our sole California 1979 MB 300SD Turbodiesel of the legendary W116 series.
This awesome California 300SD was completely unmolested, unwelded and in absolutely original condition when we purchased it from a dealer who got the car as a trade-in from the 2nd California owner only.
Everything on this car is as original as it gets, starting from the original paint in Light Ivory 623 and with the original MB Tex interior in Brown. The original paint has lost some of its luster with minor chips, dings and dents here and there, but isn't that what we call true patina?
If you are looking for a perfect 300SD, please keep on looking, but its the inners values that count, just like with human beings.
The original interior shows exceptionally well with absolutely no flaws. Undercarriage is in impeccable and super original condition and most importantly, absolutely no rust and no visible signs of any accidents.
This 300SD is almost fully loaded with all desirable and extensive options that were available at Mercedes-Benz back then.
After purchase and return of this gorgeous 300SD back to Germany we decided to go thru a partial restoration project as everything, and by everything, we literally mean everything, was original since day 1 of delivery.
Its just too many parts which were replaced to mention them all here. We spent more than 10.000.-€ alone on new spare parts and labor to bring this splendid beauty to its original best.
Nonetheless, here's a brief summary of major works conducted by us and spare parts replaced:
5 x new Vredestein Premium tires (M&S) incl. spare tire, 4 x completely re-manufactured original Fuchs alloy wheels (6J 14H2), complete brake system re-manufactured (Pads, Discs, Calipers, Rotors), Power sunroof completely remanufactured, New sealing kit for control arms front R+L, new gaskets for oil pan of engine and automatic transmission including all filters and complete oil change, new air filter, new power motors for power windows front left and rear right, cruise control power unit re-manufactured, minor welding works conducted in trunk due to water leaking from a porous gasket of the antenna, also some minor welding on driver floor pan, new gaskets for taillights R+L, new manual Hirschmann antenna including seal, new OEM washer jar, A/C charged with R134a, conversion of original BOSCH US H2 standard headlights to European H4 standard, power locks re-manufactured and many more little things here and there which make this beauty as good as it gets...
If you are looking for a super nice, trustworthy and very economic daily driver, your search is over now.
Please feel free to come by anytime and inspect the car on one of our lifts, make a test ride afterwards and you will see that we did not exaggerate with any single detail of the car.
You can easily drive back home with the car whereever you wanna drive: From Madrid to Milano or just to Munich.
