Vehicle Story

This 1983 Mercedes-Benz 300TD-T Wagon was with the original owner for 32 years before being acquired by the seller, and it has resided in the Southwest and West since new. Power comes from a 3.0-liter inline-5 turbodiesel mated to a 4-speed automatic transmission. The Classic White exterior and black leather interior are original to the car. Work performed within the past five years consists of a new fan clutch, front shocks, idler arm, cooling system, fuel lines, dash pad, rear window tint, and more. This third-series W123 shows under 104k miles and is offered with the original window sticker and purchase documents and a clear Nebraska title in the seller's name.

Classic White paint is original to the car and existing imperfections are shown in gallery photos, including an approximately 2" chip on the rear hatch door. Exterior features include clear headlights and amber driving lenses, a chrome roof rack, and chrome bumpers with black rubber trim. The car is currently stored inside and not being driven.

14" bottlecap wheels are wrapped in standard-size rubber. The seller notes the replacement of the wiper blades within the past five years.
 

Interior changes made to the phase-three W123s included molded front seat backrests to allow for more knee room for rear seat occupants, Zebrano wood paneling in the dash, and more. This example is trimmed in black leather over matching carpeting and "MBZ"-embroidered mats, the aforementioned factory upgrades, and power windows and seats. The seller states the cabin is unchanged from new other than replacement rear window tint, a new dash cover, and the rear seat is missing the headrests.

The six-digit odometer shows just under 104k miles. Current needs include repair or replacement of the factory radio, automatic antenna, and interior dome and map light bulbs. Per the seller, the turn signals flash too quickly, likely requiring a new solenoid, and the center air vents need to be freed and new vacuum lines fitted.

Power comes from an OM617 3.0-liter turbodiesel inline-5 and it is sent to the rear wheels via a 4-speed automatic transmission. Work performed under current ownership has consisted of a single injector rebuild, installation of a new fan clutch and AC condenser, replacement of the fuel delivery lines, and a cooling system flush. The car is on a trickle charger while being stored and per the seller starts up immediately with every turn of the key.

Power steering was equipped from the factory, and the idler arm is reported to have been replaced, as have the front shocks. The actuators for the rear suspension were inspected and are reported to need replacement.

The original window sticker showing a suggested retail price of over $35,000 and related purchase documents will go with the car.

@SLmike In answer to your paint question, the seller states it is a chip. There is no dent to the metal, but it would need to be filled before repainting.
