NO RESERVE AUCTION FOR SOME REASON I AM HAVING ISSUES BEING ABLE TO REPOND TO QUESTIONS SENT TO ME EBAY HAS BEEN CONTACTED TO HOPEFULLY FIX THIS .
Here’s my w123 NON turbo pre USA release special order diesel wagon (Yes like john Lennon!)Exceptionally solid No rust no major dents masses of well documented history files all service records etc never been smoked in and pretty much a one owner carDocs show personal collection at Mercedes benz factory and driven then brought back home to USA in 1979 ( see pics) lots more document pictures available by request this is not your typical ran into the ground example
BODYThe Condition really is Very nice with no rust or bad dents It Only has very few Small supermarket dings That you need to really look for and tiny stonechips from general use over the last 41 yearsIt’s a CA West coast owned car and has been very well cared for . The paint is very presentable but would really look exceptional from an all over polish and detail Due to a little sun fading. the car has been in my dry storage For around 18 months due to visiting family overseas .And in my ownership for around 5-6 years. It fired right up and came out for photos but as you can see is dusty i only used it for a weekend cruise around but have been on a few 2-300 mile tripsThe chrome and brightwork is very nice and the and Underside is Also exceptionally solid with no rust anywhere
INTERIORthe interior is chocolate brown with cream headliner it is all in really nice condition the only known flaws being a quite small tear on the back side of one seat and some hair line cracks on the dashtop (which i have a replacement hard shell over cover and is included free if you want it) and a crack on the door pocket all the guages work some do flicker from time to time but they all work including the very often broken speedo and milometer the auto antenna works fine and is a factory original brand the load area is very nice and all folds down for loading the factory first aid ki, emergency triangle and tool kit is all present inside the locker as is the bundts spare wheel and jack.the car also has a custom made set of over carpets including the load area plus an extra set of MBZ black over rugs for the passenger area included
MECHANICALthe car has approx 250,000 but has had everything replaced as and when needed by the prior owner and mainly at the dealership it starts steers stops and drives fine BUT it does seem to smoke 'sometimes" and I don't know why possibly from being in storage some years before i bought it?? or maybe because its getting tired?? Although it doesn't seem to be oil smoke I'm told this isn't high miles for these and has fired right up after sitting many months even in the winter its also never been a workhorse only a shopping car by the previous owner. but please do note the above. i had considered adding a turbo engine or just the turbo but its a nice cruiser as it is and the 3,0 5 cyl has enough for what i want the transmission shifts through all gears its a 4 speed but i am told that at this age some vac hose often may be leaking and general maintenance adjustments should be required to both engine and trans butGENERALThe AC and heat works as does the factory automatic radio antenna it has disc brakes all around all the power windows work as does the power locks it has power steering and a manual steel sliding sunroof. The wagon only optioned self leveling suspension works fine and the car has a meticulous service and repair records . The car benefits from a period correct blaupunkt radio coded cassette with the handbook the car also has cruise control and from memory I believe it was also working
IN CLOSINGi have enjoyed owning and driving this car but with current commitments i decided it can goi have given an honest description and overall this is a very very nice car its not 100% mint concours condition but could be as its not that far awayits also almost 42 years old and done 250k and even has the official grill medal of honor and docs to prove it!i can supply many more pics and evidential documents when i am available and possibly a running driving video ( its out of registration)i will also supply with the car a second set of slightly later style mbz wheels and tires plus matching special lug nuts and a selection of new and used parts i have boxed upIF you want a rust free well documented clean straight car that you can drive tinker with as you go and weekend show car cruise nights etc this would be ideal and it wouldnt take much to make it perfect. if you want a cheap thrashed abused rust bucket this isnt for you and if you want an as new concours or even a turbo version this isnt for you eitherPLEASE NOTE this is a high miles nearly 42 year old car i am not a dealership and no warranty is given or implied

thank you for taking the time to read this happy bidding and good luck
Please see below for a question that was asked previously, as eBay will not publicly list questions anymore and I am having trouble responding through eBay:
"Hi, thank you for your question. Sorry for the delay there is a weird issue with EBAY where it won’t allow me to respond sometimes and won’t even notify me I have had any questions so I should prob explain that on the listing .
Ok so Short answer yes the car had been dry stored for a good while before/when I bought it ( estate Sale) and as it was my new toy I gave it an oil change and fuel filter and had a set of new glow plugs fitted I only use it on weekends for a day out driving but I would say I’ve prob driven it 5-6K Miles maybe
Also when I say smoke I don’t meen it’s a smoke screen im just making people aware it’s just hazy smoke sometimes like a cold diesel truck but it’s not all the time or constant When driving it’s usually when it’s cold but it’s not all the time Either and seems to go just fine And comes and gos I guess it’s just an old Mercedes
I hope that explains it better sorry for the delay I will try and get a driving video to show people but it’s out of registration"
