1984 Mercedes-Benz 300SD


Engine: 3.0L I5 F
Transmission: 4-Speed Auto
Mileage: 174839 ( undocumented )

If you’re looking to get into a great starter Mercedes, look no further! Gateway Classic Cars of Milwaukee is now offering this 1984 Mercedes Benz 300SD. This diesel-powered Mercedes is equipped with Air Conditioning, Heated Seats, Power Sunroof, Power Windows, Automatic Transmission and Cruise Control. You’ll also love the leather seats with lumbar support. Although the first W116 S-Class in the 1970s established Mercedes-Benz as a global leader in safety engineering and technical prowess for sedans, it was the next W126 S-Class, beginning in 1979, that saw this model become a top-tier luxury good, a true flagship, and a lasting symbol of affluence throughout the 1980s. The smoothed-over styling of the W126 S-Class signaled a newfound focus on aerodynamics and fuel-efficiency. With a coefficient of drag 14 percent better than the previous model and curb weights starting around 3,600 pounds, this generation of S-Class was quite efficient for its time in its six-cylinder and diesel forms when compared to that era’s large American sedans. Safety and occupant protection were also unparalleled, with a driver airbag offered through most of the model run. Traction control was also introduced, as were seat-belt pretensioners. This Mercedes Benz 300SD is for sale in our Milwaukee Showroom and can be seen at www.GatewayClassicCars.com; call (262) 891-4253 or email us at milwaukee@gatewayclassiccars.com for additional information.
