Description:

1979 Mercedes-Benz 200-Series

THIS VEHICLE IS SOLD "AS IS" "WHERE IS". I ACCEPT “PayPal” and CASHIER'S CHECKS DRAWN ON US AND CANADIAN BANKS ONLY!

OF HISTORICAL INTEREST: The W123 models surpassed their predecessor, the W114 models, as the most successful Mercedes, selling 2.7 million cars before replacement by the W124 after 1985. Additionally, nine months after its introduction, a black market had developed in Germany for Mercedes-Benz W123s available for immediate delivery. Customers willing to order new cars from their local authorized dealer for the recommended list price faced waiting times in excess of twelve months. Meanwhile, models that were barely used and were available almost immediately commanded a premium over the new price of around DM 5,000

Factory engine upgrade in 1979 from 64hp to 72hp at 4000 RPM AND 101 LB-FT at 2400 rpm.

Full-Sized Spare Tire and factory Bilstein crank-up body Jack included.
