1983 W123 300D Turbo Diesel Sedan For Sale

Sorry SOLD on July 15 2021. It's name is Green-Go - because it is green and it really GOES! One of the fastest 300D's we have ever driven.

If you are looking for a show car this may not be the one for you. It looks great from 10 feet away but there are some small flaws in the paint. This is why Kent discounted it $2200. You can get it to shine as you see here and it looks pretty good if perfection is not your thing. The vent ornaments on the front fenders are just stick-on chrome plastic ornaments and can be easily removed. There is a good portion of the paint that is original but the hood and rear quarter panels have some cracking in the paint so those places have been repainted I believe. (THE PAINT IS THE REASON FOR THE DISCOUNT) The interior is Palomino and better than most daily drivers.  It is the engine, transmission, and mechanicals that will put a real smile on your face. What I am asking for the whole car is less than you will pay for a rebuilt OM617 turbo diesel installed!!!

Many are concerned about rust and rightfully so. This is one of the real pluses of this car and a key reason why it should be saved. From the pictures under the car that you see here, it looks the same underneath from the front to the back. The car has never been subject to road salt. No weak rocker panels or jack points that you see on many 123's. The bottoms of the doors are super clean and there is no rust through in the door seal channels like you see on many W123 sedans now. 

Some key points to note on the interior. There are no rips or tears in the seats. The headliner is in very good condition. Carpets and not perfect but above average of what you see now. The dash has no major cracking. Only a couple of very fine line cracks coming out from the speaker covers (common) that are hardly noticeable. The dash wood is all there. May need to refinish the wood around the shifter. One of the best things is both front and rear window seals have been replaced with the correct sealant so the car does not fog up in the mornings due to water leaks. 

The power windows and the Power sunroof work great. Right power mirror works. The cruise control does not work. The AC Pump and hoses were removed ( so there is no work AC in the car). Here are some of the things that will need attention:

  • Some door check straps need replacing
  • Cruise control
  • Vacuum door locks
  • Misc interior cleaning and detail

A few have asked about the air conditioning. The only components that were removed from the system are the AC Delco Remy Pump and the two main hoses. I can include those at no extra charge but you will have to buy a new pump as the one you see her is worn out. You would have to source the parts needed to get it functional. Here are the A/C parts I will leave in the trunk.
