1984 Mercedes-Benz 300-Series LWB Limousine1984 Mercedes Benz 300D - Factory LWB Limousine -Very Rare - Only 62K Miles!!!
Originally Purchased in 1984 by Charles 'Bebe' Rebozzo!! All Original!!
Here is an absolutely exceptional example of this very rare and unique 1984 Mercedes-Benz 300D W123D 3.0L 5 cylinder, Door Long Wheel Base Limousine Sedan. With a Diesel fuel injection engine in its original factory 'Astral Silver Metallic' color paint. Its original and virtually flawless 'Blue Cloth Woven' interior, atching color Mercedes-Benz hubcaps and only 63K original miles!
Reportedly originally purchased in 1984 by Charles 'Bebe' Rebozzo, renowned Florida banker and businessman who was notorious for being a close confidant, inancial advisor and friend for over 44 years to President Nixon. According to our records the car was used by Rebozzo to transport Nixon around Key Biscayne, L during his visits there in the mid 1980's. The car will be sold with all its original owners manuals, ervice booklet and tools.
The Mercedes-Benz W123 is a now legendary series of flagship executive vehicles manufactured by Mercedes-Benz from 1975 until 1985 and was a successor to the earlier W114 and W115 series. From 1977, limited number of Long Wheel Base versions (3,425mm or 134.8") were produced by Mercedes-Benz with a 3.0L straight 5 cylinder (OM617.912) Diesel engine and these stretched sedans would comfortably seat 8 people and could be ordered as either a 240D, 50 or 300D model. The W123 series ended production in January 1986 with over 324,718 W123 series cars being built but with only 4,679 LWB Limousines!
These diesel models are considered to have one of the most reliable engines ever produced and one of the key reasons for Mercedes popularity around the world today as the ultimate long distance and durable touring car with many models still being used around the globe as taxi cabs boasting many hundreds of thousands of miles on the clock. They offered a unique combination of luxury, xclusivity, conomy and reliability that could not possibly be matched by any other brand making it the vehicle of choice by countless diplomats, xecutives and other such entities. These luxurious cars still command a strong demand internationally, specially low mileage and well maintained and unabused examples such as this particular example.
Enthusiasm for the 123 series increased further in 1977 as this was the year in which Mercedes-Benz presented three additional body variants: the coupe, he long-wheelbase saloon, nd for the first time in the brand's history a factory-built estate wagon. In August 1977 Mercedes-Benz introduced the long-wheelbase version of the intermediate class saloon: the wheelbase of the W123 (3.43 metres) was 63 centimetres longer than that of the saloon (2.80 metres). That provided enough space for a third seat bench and made the car a comfortable executive company car or hotel limousine for seven/eight passengers. Only the 250, 40 D and 300 D models were offered with the long wheelbase. The W123 line was continuously and relentlessly developed and improved and refined throughout its production cycle and by 1985 the series was near perfection and marked perhaps the ultimate expression of Mercedes long renowned and well deserved reputation for build quality, urability and longevity. Despite its imposing proportions and powerful engines, he Long-Wheelbase saloon was not mainly intended as a solely representational vehicle, ather, his rare Long Wheel Base body variant was intended to serve as a sophisticated touring car for several passengers for a variety of upscale purposes and once again impressed the industry with its high degree of ride comfort and great spaciousness and predictably many of these exclusive vehicles joined the fleets of diplomatic embassies and the era's top celebrities and social elite.
This particular model was obviously always garaged and babied by previous owners as it still boasts its original paint with obviously therefore no signs of any accidents and has a clean CARFAX report. The car still has all its original parts and has absolutely no rust whatsoever! The car was obviously never driven in winter weather or was exposed to the elements and has all the signs of always been a non-smoking car since new. The original and very striking factory 'Astral Silver Metallic' color paint is in absolutely beautiful condition and the original 'Dark Blue' woven cloth front seats with two rear fold down 'jump seats' and the rear seat are also in absolutely beautiful condition throughout with virtually no signs of any wear. The original leather dashboard is also in great shape with no cracks or blemishes (obviously always garaged from the sun and elements). The trunk also appears to have been hardly used and still has its original spare wheel and factory tools unused in their rightful compartment.
The car drives exactly like such a well maintained and serviced Mercedes-Benz Diesel with believed to be only 62K original miles, s stated by its previous owners, ltra low mileage and extraordinarily rare for these notoriously hard driven vehicles and virtually just broken in for this legendary engine. The car reportedly has a new alternator and battery, ew brakes, hock absorbers, ires and all the power windows work and the air conditioning blows cold. The engine is extremely strong with no noticeable oil leaks and the temperature always remains cool.
Without a doubt, his is one of the finest cars ever built by Mercedes-Benz, r for that matter any other car manufacturer, nd they are now becoming increasingly more desirable and hard to find, specially with such low original miles and in such all original and unabused and unrestored condition, ertainly you will look long and hard to find a finer head-turning example of this rare factory built Long Wheel Base Limousine in its original factory paint available anywhere else! This is a grey market car that was not made for the US market. The VIN number is WDB12313212300277. This car was imported to the US legally and can be registered anywhere in the US with no problems.
