FS: '85 300CD Turbo Diesel / W123

• California Car, Rust and Accident Free.
• Lowest production of all W123 produced. Only 8,000 were built.
• Power sunroof and windows work great
• Nice and clean . . . check this link for more pix:

• It was converted to a factory 4 speed manual transmission
• Factory original (has never been repainted) 904g midnight blue paint over palomino MB tex interior
• Lower engine oil cooler hose should be replaced as it is leaking a bit of oil
• Air conditioning is not working and most likely will need an a/c compressor

The car was bought from insurance company eight years ago. It was sold with a salvage title however it has never been in a accident. The insurance company called it a "smoke damage car" as it was near a garage that caught fire.

Fun car to drive as a stick shift, A car that Mercedes never built as stick shift and for a reason. (too reliable)

Consider your audience. We know how many were produced. Stick to the details, like telling us about the leaky oil cooler line and the AC being inop. Milage (no, not the 40 mpg type either) and if you have any maintenance records would be nice tidbits of info. Nice looker, for sure. Good luck with the sale.

The car is located in Ventura County California.
It has 223,000 miles and is running very strong.
No records are available but the car shows that it has been nicely maintained.

Looking for a reasonable offer.

auto to standard

just a point you cant just change the trnsmission from auto to standard as the angine is balanced to the auto trans,i think you waould have to rebalance the new flywheel and crankshaft with the front balancer,thats a lot of work,was the motor and replaced with the tranny?i cant see the insurance salvage a car unless it cost more to fix than repaire,all that work and no papertrail.thats a shame,nonetheless a nice looking car.
