1983 Mercedes-Benz 300-Series
The 5-cylinder, 125hp, Mercedes W123 Turbo Diesel is known for going for hundreds of thousands of miles. This one, with just over 83,000 miles, has a long, long way to go. It is in extremely good condition both mechanically and cosmetically.
If you want a diesel Mercedes that has not been messed-with, this it it. It is very original and correct right down to the factory am/fm/cassette.
The exterior light ivory paint is very good with only a couple of touched-up parking lot chips on the passenger side door. Chrome and rubber are excellent.
The interior is fabulous. The seats, headliner, dash, look great. A previous owner put a piece of tape on the driver side foot well opening where the driver’s foot might scrape when exiting. It is shown in the photos. I don’t know it it was to protect the edge from wear or to hold loose trim but it is down low and nearly invisible in regular use.
This car does not need much. The electric antennae does not go up and down with the button. You have to raise and lower it manually. The driver side rear window will go down but not up. The others all work perfectly including the sunroof.
The A/C has been retrofitted to run on 134A refrigerant and it works. The lights, horn, radio, gages, etc work fine. The tires have excellent tread depth: 10/32” front and 8/32” rear. This car has power steering, power disc brakes, automatic transmission. It does not have hidden problems, squeaks, rattles or vibrations. It is a 30+ year old Mercedes-Benz which is a very well made and engineered automobile with classic good looks. BTW, I got 33mpg on my last tank of diesel.
This Mercedes was serviced less than 500 miles ago. It is in drive-anywhere condition. It comes with 2 keys and original factory manuals.
The car is garaged in eastern Pennsylvania. Interested parties are encouraged to come see it in person and to drive it to confirm my description. It is sold “as is / where is”. Buyers subject to NJ taxes must pay NJ 7% sales tax. PayPal is acceptable for the $500 deposit only. Full payment in cash or bank check must be received and cleared by the bank before the car can be collected. This auction may be ended early if the vehicle is no longer available.
