|Engine||4cyl - 2.4L|
This manila beige Mercedes is an outstanding all original survivor. The interior looks like it has never even been driven and still has that distinctive “new Mercedes leather” smell to it. The 4 speed diesel combination makes this a smooth driving classic that could be daily driven. The value on the iconic W123 Mercedes body type continues to go up, especially on a survivor like this. The 2.4L diesel engine is all original and still running strong, and with a very clean engine bay. This is a car the whole family can fit into comfortably, or it can used to commute to work with very classy style and good drivability.
Mercedes-Benz introduced the W123 four-door executive car in January, 1976 to replace the W115. The overall dimensions and wheelbase were lengthened and styling was updated to a less angular more contemporary look. The new look included round head lights with inboard fog lamps in all models except the 280 and 280E which had large rectangular headlights. Later the European models were all changed to the rectangular headlights. North American models retained the round complement. In 1980/81 the carbureted 280 was replaced with the fuel-injected 280E. W123 introduced many innovations in both safety and styling including ABS brakes, retractable steering columns and airbags for the driver.
