Lots of little things are preventing this car from being driven. I believe the car will run with a new battery and new diesel. This is one of the greatest cars ever built. If you know anything about these cars you should know that these cars never die, they just go into hibernation. 323,XXX original miles. Clean title in hand. $400 obo. Call or text me anytime with questions at (two5two) nine1seven-four3six3 or email me.

323,594 "original" miles? Is the seller trying to reassure us that it's not 1,323,594, or what? (But I like that line about "they just go into hibernation.")

No, they're original miles. The car never drove on the same road twice.

As you can imagine, this makes driving difficult after a while, which is one of the little things preventing it from going on the road.

If you do it right, the pump will last longer than on diesel. But yeah, there are enough doofuses out there to keep the masses from using up my fuel supply

$400 bucks is still a great deal. Engine and trans alone are worth that much or more. Way too far for me to get it andam short on funds right now to.
