Exclamation Brand New W123

Is it possible? a W123 with a zero mileage on its odometer?

Of course it is, but it's also highly improbable. Find one?

chances are it wouldn't have 0 on it- I'm sure even back then each car was driven a few miles before being shipped out- most cars now I get have anywhere from 5-35 miles on them.

now I could also set your odometer to 0 if you really wanted that

If its a import..

On a import to the US, converters can choose install a new odometer in mph, and really the import paperwork does not necessarily have to clearly state the km's on the old odometer... 0 miles is a danger point, normally a "story" about the correct mileage/km's comes out from the seller, and like I say import paperwork does not clearly have to address this..

As johnhef said, it's virtually imposible to have a *0* on the odo. I work for a japanese manufacturer of cars here in p.I. and surely at least 5-10kms the car would have.. and that is just doing QC checks in the plant... noit to mention the transport from the plant to the dealer.

But it'll be interesting to find a *hardly used* W123 by a one owner and *babied* the car and had it stuffed in his garage.... hmmmm, nice to have!

OT: Nuts, your *bug* signature got me there.... I almost slapped my screen! Hahaha!
