Description:

1985 Mercedes-Benz 300-Series TDT, Turbo Diesel Touring

Selling this well preserved 1985 Mercedes Benz TDT. The last of the production run for the much loved W123. This one is finished in code 172, Gray on Palmino(tan) interior. The wagon runs good, shifts good and is ready to make the million mile mark. It has only traveled a scant 260,929 Mercedes Diesel miles. They still use the W123 as taxis in Europe. This one was elderly owned and cared for. They have owned it since 1999 and it has always been a third car and lovingly cared for and driven. The headliner is in mint condition. The dash has one small crack. All the gauges and lights function as they should. All the windows work. The SLS was addressed back in the day and may need new accumulators or a conversion. The A/C blows cool and not cold. I would either convert to R134A or if you can find someone with R12, charge it. The sunroof slides back and forth with ease. The power antennae even works still. The door panels are in good shape. The seats also with the driver's side cushion and bolster showing some wear(see photos and video). Early morning starts are good, it does not have any blow-by or run on when the motor is turned off. Being a California vehicle, NO RUST. The rear hatch even stays up all by itself. It rides on chromes Bundt alloys. Yes, they chromed them back in the day. I would put on a set of 8 hole alloys for a more modern look. However, that is the choice of the new owner. There is some fading and clear coat peeling on the vehicle. (See photos and video)
