1980 Mercedes-Benz 300-Series W123

This is a Mercedes wagon W123 body style that has been well maintained and is in very good condition. It has the OM617 solid steel diesel engine that has proven to be very reliable and can be run on diesel, iodiesel or WVO (waste veggie oil). She is smooth running and starts right up even after sitting for weeks. The transmission is 4 speed manual (which is very rare for these models) and also has the euro style manual windows instead of the electric windows. She will run at 80 mph for days and she will get 25-30 mpg. I would comfortably drive her cross-country.
This is the same make and model that John Lennon drove around New York with all of his musical equipment. When new, hese had a long waiting list to purchase. She has a new Kenwood AM/FM/CD player with bluetooth, nd a new $2400. paint job with no scratches or dings. She also has power assisted brakes, manual sunroof, og lights, nbsp;all gauges and lights working and she was recently serviced with all new filters, il change, ngine mounts, alve adjustment, uspension, tc. There is also a 3rd row seat, hich folds down as well as the middle seats to give you a space to lie down and take a nap. The tires are brand new Goodyears and she will also come with an owners manual and service records.
Try googling 300TD and Vanity Fair to see pictures of this same model and what they say about this indestructible car. With minimal maintenance, here is no reason that she will not be a daily driver 100 years from now. She can be the last car you will ever need to buy. They have been well known to get over a million miles on the same engine. The question is alway "What color should my Mercedes be?" The answer is whatever color your grandchildren like, ecause they are the ones that will be driving her.
It is always best to do your due diligence before making an offer on any vehicle. If you can come by and inspect and drive her, ou can also have your mechanic take a look at her suspension and drivetrain. Please call me at 310 (Burbank) 418,9293 to schedule a time to see her. I am also available to assist with any shipping arrangements.
