The predecessor of the E Class, this 4 door is known for being solid and extremely versatile. This Saloon is a pure example of what life was in the 80's to have a simple reliable driver. Shown here in the highly sought after Euro spec. The Mercedes W123 is one of the best vehicles to own for its time and still holds a strong following when it comes to value for enthusiasts. Do not let the current mileage of 178K fool you, as this old noisy gal is just stretching her legs. These cars were built to be driven with the idea simplicity is a prerequisite for reliability. The simple naturally aspirated power plant is proven capable of a million miles with routine maintenance.

One of the last basic, no-frills high-volume Mercedes ever built. The lack of power options, manual transmission, and naturally aspirated diesel eliminated many of the typical failure points compared to other cars of the era. This car was built to stand the test of time and a long life down the road.A W123 has so much more to offer with a reasonable price point. The 240D is easy to maintain with parts that are inexpensive and easily sourced compared to some of the European counterparts. This sedan is operated with a four-wheel independent suspension that is provides for a smooth yet agile handling. The reputation of the W123 is utterly bomb proof. With a curb weight of 3053lbs you will feel solid and safe driving the distance with up to 5 passengers. The engineers over in Deutschland built one heck of a machine which caused Mercedes to build over 2.6 million W123s. Even with that many of them sold, finding a clean example is getting harder and harder. These cars known drivability kept them in their proper place. On the road racking up miles hence the vast majority have seen many highways, back roads, and autobahns. The next owner of this 240D will have a pleasurable driving machine for many years to come.
