Description for Mercedes-Benz 300-Series 1982

In automotive history, few cars bring strong emotions every time someone sees them. One of those in my opinion is the Mercedes Benz W123 wagon.
Combine German reliability, afety innovations, conomy, port handling, tilitarian interior and features with an elegant and tasteful and now timeless Italian design (yes I said Italian, s Bruno Sacco was head of Mercedes design during the W123 development) and you have the iconic Mercedes diesel wagon, he W123 300TD.
My 1982 featured in this auction was purchased and restored for a particular purpose, project which has now been cancelled and this is what has me considering selling this car. Located in Miami Florida
While I wasn't trying to win any shows, henever I do drive this car in the US, get compliments daily, ven yelled by passing bicyclists or drivers across lanes of traffic.
I am not a mechanic but I have owned many German diesels and will attempt to describe everything to be best of my ability. No 33 year old car is perfect and if you are seriously considering buying one of these one of the most important questions is what has been replaced. These can basically be completely rebuilt due to the strength of the components but if you are looking at an all original or unmaintained vehicle you are in for a long road.
NEW or replaced in the last year or so:
NEW CARPET AND INTERIOR IN MB TEX.
NEW PAINT.
Rebuilt crankcase.
New valve cover gasket and valve cover from the local dealer.
All new brakes and calipers.
Suspension including air and front shocks.
Wheels repacked 2 years ago.
AC, lthough it is still not good enough for 95 degrees in the US.
Radiator is new as well as many fans belts and hoses.
New wiper arms and blades.
5 nearly new tires.
New windshield seal.
Runs very smoothly and uses little fuel.
Steering, rakes and suspension ride like a new car.
Transmission upshifts and downshifts nicely.
New sunroof seal.
New Steering Box. New upgraded alternator from S Class. New OEM battery.
Needs attention
One speaker wire is buzzing sometimes, nd the bluetooth mic doesn't work well at all.
Odometer, achometer and fuel gauge are frozen. I have a new odometer uninstalled that I can include, his is very recent.
Dash cover should go, ut dash under is cracked.
Wood is cracked.
Some minor water leak in a car wash right rear window.
Exterior windows seals and chrome old and show it.
Needs the touch of a good body man and perhaps new strikers as some doors need to be slammed.
A little rust bubble spots although when it was painted last year any rust was removed, ncluding some on floorboards which was completely repaired.
Sunroof latch is lose.
May need additional valve adjustment eventually as one still has that hammer tap sound in addition to the normal dieseling.
Car is being sold as is and you are responsible for your bid which is a legal contract. You may call me for questions at

I will be glad to export this car. Any shipping costs domestic or international shall be the responsibility of the buyer. Acceptable payment methods are cash and wire transfer. Paypal for deposit only.
Thank you.
