1981 MERCEDES-BENZ W123 300 TURBODIESEL AUTOMATIC

THE 123 CHASSIS 300 TURBODIESEL IS A VERY RARE BEAST INDEED, SO MUCH SO THAT THIS IS CURRENTLY THE ONLY EXAMPLE FOR SALE IN THE UK. RECENTLY IMPORTED FROM CALIFORNIA, MERCEDES-BENZ MADE THIS MODEL EXCLUSIVLY FOR THE NORTH AMERICAN MARKET WHICH ALSO SPAWNED A TE ESTATE VARIANT AND 300 CD COUPE.

THE FIVE CYLINDER 300 TD IS OFTEN REFERRED TO AS THE HOLY GRAIL OF W123'S AMONGST THOSE IN THE KNOW DUE TO ITS TORQUEY 120 BHP ENGINE MATED TO A SUPER SMOOTH AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION.

SUCH IS THE RARITY OF THIS MODEL, THIS EXACT CAR WAS THE COVER CAR IN A RECENT EDITION OF MERCEDES ENTHUSIAST MAGAZINE AND SUBJECT TO A 6 PAGE ARTICLE COMPARING IT TO THE LATEST GENERATION E350D, WITH THE CONCLUSION BEING THEY PREFER THE W123!

FINISHED IN STUNNING SILVER METALLIC WITH A CONTRASTING BLUE MB-TEX (FAUX LEATHER) INTERIOR. THIS IS A VERY WELL SPECIFIED EXAMPLE BOASTING FACTORY OPTIONS OF MB TEX INTERIOR TRIM, BECKER AUDIO SYSTEM, AIR CONDITIONING, SUNROOF, MEXICAN HAT ALLOY WHEELS, ELECTRIC WINDOWS BUT TO NAME BUT A FEW.

THIS IS A VERY HONEST, PATINATED EXAMPLE WHICH HAS BEEN MOT'D SINCE ARRIVING IN THE UK NOW JUST REQUIRES RE-REGISTRATION (OR EXPORT TO ELSEWHERE!) IT SAILED STRAIGHT THROUGH AN MOT WITHOUT A SINGLE ADVISORY.

AS CATALOGUED BY THE MAGAZINE ARTICLE THE CAR HAS A WONDERFUL HISTORY IN THE US BEING DELIVERED NEW TO SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA AND BEING SUBSEQUENTLY MAINTAINED BY 2 WELL KNOWN MERCEDES MAIN DEALERS/SPECIALISTS IN CALIFORNIA WITH A TOTAL OF TWENTY SERVICES AND AND SERVICE NUMBER TWENTY ONE UPON ARRIVAL HERE IN THE UK (ALSO STAMPED IN THE SERVICE BOOK).

WE WELCOME ALL ENQUIRIES ON THIS UNIQUE VEHICLE FROM THE UK AND FURTHER AFIELD.

I HAVE ONLY FOUND AN ENGINE ALONE FOR SALE (WITHOUT THE CAR ATTACHED!) IN THE UK - ASKING PRICE 8500EUR. OBVIOUSLY VERY SOUGHT AFTER MODEL AND POWERPLANT

PART EXCHANGE WELCOME IRRESPECTIVE OF VALUE OR TYPE (BOATS OR MOTORCYCLES INCLUDED)
