Today, Mercedes is synonymous with making high-tech luxury vehicles. Back in 1984 they were more known for the quality and engineering that went into their cars. That is what makes these W123 platform cars so sought after. These are revered all over the world for their reliability. This W123 has the OM617 5 cylinder turbo diesel. Producing 123 horsepower and 170 foot pounds of torque when new, this engine is known for its longevity and durability. Power goes to the rear wheels through a 4-speed automatic transmission.

This w123 is a late production model and is finished in the rare lapis blue color. This car is claimed to start, run, and drive as it should with no warning lights illuminated on the dash. The owner claims the odometer stopped functioning intermittently a few months ago so the true mileage is unknown. Included in the sale is a service history. It features MB-Tex tan seats that appear to have held up great as well as a working sunroof. All vacuum operated power door locks seem to operate as they should. The original becker radio is mounted in the dash and features AM, FM & cassette functionality. The dash appears to be crack free. A custom cup holder system is found mounted underneath the center armrest.

Cosmetically this Mercedes has held up really well although it does have a few flaws. On the exterior there are several areas where it is scratched and a couple places where touch up paint has been applied on the rear of the vehicle. It appears to be very rust free with clean metal in several common corrosion areas such as the rear fenders and trunk lid. Inside the trunk there appears to be no rust in the spare tire wheel well. There are some cracks in the plastic trim around the headlights. Some of the wood trim is coming off and a few pieces are missing on the interior. The owner says the air conditioning system is weak and that an oil leak is present at the front of the engine. This car is being sold as-is with a clear colorado title.
