1983 Mercedes-Benz 300-Series 300cd 300cdt 300 cd cdt W123 coupeThis 1983 was originally purchased in CA and spent its whole life here with only 2 owners since new .There are still the original blue CA plates from 1983 .It was finished in champagne metallic ( MB color code 473) withPalomino color leather ( yes real leather) interior .It was always garaged and it shows.There is absolutely no rust on this car .The body is very straight and the paint still shines like new .With the gorgeous paint and the very shiny chrom, this car gets a lot of attention .When all all the windows are dow, this gorgeous coupe really stands out .
The interior is super clean as well . The leather seats have been re-done a couple of years ago and still look and feel like new .The carpets are clean and even the wood is still in excellent conditio, as the many pictures will show .
This stunning 300CD comes with a very extensive service history ( over $30000,- worth in total) . We even still have the original window sticker . Every little thing this car ever needed was taken care of right away .I can not think of anything it needs right now . This is a very special car and i would not hesitate to drive it to the east coast at a moments notice . There are no oil leaks . The engine was recently fully service, complete with belts, fluids and filters . The air-conditioning blows ice cold and from all the vents . All the windows work the way they should front and back . The power door-locks wor, just like the cruise control and the power sunroof . The tires have less than 3000 miles on them and the brakes were re-done last year . The turbo charger was replaced a few years ago and this 300CD has plenty of power . It shifts smoothly through all the gears and is truly a pleasure to drive . It will cruise effortlessly at 85-90 miles per hour and still get you 25-27 miles per gallon of diesel .
This would be a perfect car for somebody who likes classic car, but needs them to be perfectly reliable . The W123 series Mercedes do have a reputation for being the most reliable cars Mercedes built . There are several cars with this engine on Ebay right now that have over 500k miles and are still driving well . If you keep maintaining this car the way it has been taken care of, it should last you a lifetime. This would also be a great addition to any car collection . It will be hard to find another one this clean and with a full service history .They just do not make them like this anymore. The leather interior was also a rare option for the W123 series coupe in 1983.
Please look at all the pictures i uploade, as they can describe this Mercedes better than i can . This car comes with a clean CA titl, 4 keys and all the books and service records since new . Please have your funding in order and do all your "due diligence" BEFORE placing a bid . This is a wonderfu, well maintained classic car and it will be sold WITHOUT a warranty " as is "and " where is " . I would prefer to sell this car locally to somebody who could come out and see it / test drive it . But i would also be willing to help with shipping arrangements or an airport pick up ( LAX ) for out of town buyers. If you have any questions or concern, please just ask . If you send me a note througheBa, i will get back to you quickly . Thank you for looking at my auction and good luck !!
