For Sale: 1985 Mercedes-Benz 300D in Atlanta, Georgia


Vehicle Description

Motorcar Studio is pleased to offer this 1985 Mercedes-Benz 300D Turbo Diesel. The W123 is the car that cemented Mercedes-Benz's reputation for reliability and longevity, with many reaching half a million miles and still going strong. The fact that anything under 200,000 miles like this one is considered "low mileage" is pretty remarkable in and of itself.

This 300D is presented in the gorgeous color of nautical blue over brown leather interior. It's a long-term, two-owner Atlanta car with no known rust that just saw an extensive cosmetic and mechanical freshening at the hands of its enthusiast caretaker. Nice paint, new Bundt wheels with new Yokohamas, good glass, bumpers, trim, etc. All new rubber including door, sunroof and trunk seals plus window channels and sweeps.

Interior was fully refinished with new leather seats and door panels and all new Zebrano wood. Excellent crack-free dash. The Continental head unit is among our favorites for providing modern functionality with a look appropriate for a 1980s European car. HVAC has been fully serviced with new vacuum pods and control panel, a new heater mono-valve and a new A/C compressor, receiver-drier and expansion valve.

Under the hood is the legendary OM617A turbocharged five-cylinder Diesel mated to a four-speed automatic transmission. Recent service includes glow plugs, air filter, fuel filter, fuel lines, oil pan and gasket, plus a new vacuum pump. It starts easily and runs well (and with fewer than 170,000 miles, it's barely broken in). Suspension, steering and brake systems have recently seen comprehensive service including new Bilstein shocks all around, new front brake rotors and pads, new steering linkage and complete front-end rebuild with control arm bushings, strut rod bushings, ball joints, etc. The result is an exceptionally tight, smooth and rattle-free chassis that drives as it did when new.
