Up for auction is this 1984 Mercedes-Benz W123 300TD Turbo finished in Light Ivory over a Palomino MB-Tex interior. Well known for its robust design and exceptional build quality, the W123 series is sought after by collectors and enthusiasts alike. Equipped with Mercedes' renowned OM617 turbo-diesel engine, this 1984 S123 estate version is said to have been under the care of the same family up until May of 2021 and is now being offered for auction by its seller out of New Jersey.
The Light Ivory finish on this 300TD is accented by chrome brightwork on the bumpers, front grille, mirror caps, window surrounds, and side moldings. The seller notes that several body panels may have been refinished at some point, additional images are provided in the gallery along with an accident-free CARFAX report. Equipment includes U.S.-market impact bumpers, sealed-beam headlamps, fog lamps, a roof rack, a rear wiper, a sunroof, and 14″ Bundt alloy wheels dressed in a set of Hankook Kinergy ST tires dated from 2020.
Inside, you will find a nicely presented cabin trimmed in Palomino MB-Tex upholstery with Zebrano wood veneer inlays on the dashboard and center console. Amenities include automatic climate control, power windows, cruise control, and an upgraded Pioneer radio. The CARFAX report shows a mileage inconsistency in March 2017, and the true mileage of the car is unconfirmed.
Power comes from an OM617 inline five-cylinder turbodiesel engine which produced up to 123 HP and 184 lb.-ft of torque when new. The rear wheels are driven through a 4-speed automatic transmission, and stopping power comes from disc brakes at all four corners. The seller notes that some corrosion is present on the undercarriage, and CARFAX shows a fuel line to have been replaced along with an oil and filter change in March of 2021. An invoice is also provided for a recent oil service and valve cover gasket replacement.
This sale will include a clean title. With its highly desirable estate configuration and turbodiesel engine, this classic W123 300TD awaits its next caretaker.
