For Sale: 1978 Mercedes-Benz 300D in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of San Antonio/Austin is proud to present this 1978 Mercedes-Benz 300D. The Mercedes W123 is one of the most well-engineered cars of all time and are widely known for lasting for decades, or even millions of miles, without any issues. This means that they work great as an affordable classic. They are not old to the point where they cannot be driven comfortably but are old enough to feel special. Powering the Mercedes-Benz 300D is a single overhead cam, 3.0L naturally aspirated 5-cylinder diesel engine mated up to a buttery smooth 4-speed automatic transmission that has been newly refreshed. This is a very well-preserved Benz and it honestly looks like it just rolled off the show room floor. The seats in the car look as if they were never sat in! The car is finished in pastel grey and features chrome-accented US-market impact bumpers and a power antenna. The cabin features front bucket seats and a rear bench upholstered in blue leather with matching door panels and carpets along with wood trim on the dashboard and center console. Equipment includes power steering, cruise control, air conditioning, an Alpine stereo with 4 new speakers, and power windows and locks. The air conditioning system was recently redone and converted to use 134a refrigerant. Instrumentation consists of a 115-mph speedometer, an analog clock, and gauges for coolant temperature, fuel level, and oil pressure. Everything you want, everything you need, and everything you expect out of classic Mercedes Benz & backed by a power train that will last through the ages. The are listed as one of the top vehicles that will only appreciate over time, so if you have ever thought of how nice it would be to daily-drive a classic import, this should be worthy of consideration.
