MERCEDES-BENZ: 1982 240D, off-white/blue interior, sunroof inOP, manual trans,looks and runs like new, never seen a winter road and always lovingly maintained,
You could buy a semi-sporty, kinda-flashy Benz in 1982, but you bought the 240D because you knew it would last four times as long as sedans costing a third as much. This not-particularly-luxurious machine listed at $23,158 new (that's around $60,000 grand in inflation-adjusted 2018 dollars), in a year in which a newDodgeDiplomat with more power had an MSRP of $7,750. A newCadillacSedanDeVillewas just $15,699 that year.
When you drove a 240D, you told the world that you cared aboutvalue.
When you drive a 240D, you are telling the world you care about VALUE. In 1982 you could have bought a semi-sporty, flashy Benz but you bought a 240D because you knew it would last 4 times as long as all other sedans costing a third as much. This luxurious machine was listed at $23,158 BRAND NEW (which was alot closer to $60,000 inflation-adjusted 2018 dollars).
Mercedes Benz built its iron-clad W123 series cars from 1975 to 1986, amassing a fleet worldwide just shy of 2.7 million vehicles. Most of those cars (about 2.4 million) were standard wheelbase sedans like this1982 Mercedes-Benz 240D, for sale on Hemmings.com, while 199,517 were wagons and 99,884 were coupes.
Oil burners were the most popular with buyers â€” which included a lot of taxi and fleet operators â€” and the stingy 2.4-liter four in the 240D led the charge for M-B diesels powering 448,986 sedans.
Mercedes expected owners to get hundreds of thousands of miles out of their light diesels without a major overhaul and these cars really are reliable if properly looked after. Due to the 30 pounds of vinyl undercoating applied to the underside of every one, theyâ€™re not as prone to the rust problems that plagued other cars of this vintage and, with parts still available from Mercedes-Benz dealers as well as a myriad of other sources, W123 series Benzes are endlessly rebuildable.
In traffic, W 123 diesels, even the turbodiesels, feel lazy pitted against modern fuel-injected gasoline powered vehicles with variable valve timing and five, six, seven and eight speed transmissions. But all out on the highway, the Benzâ€™s Autobahn breeding becomes very apparent: these cars seem more stable, smooth and quiet at 75 mph than at 35 mph.It remains legendary to this day for its reliability and lack of frivolity. Thedieselversions saw decades of service as taxis in Europe and Africa, and quite a few were sold in the United States as well.
This particular example, complete with a no-nonsense four-speed manual gearbox looks like itâ€™s ready for a long-distance roadtrip today.
