They say looks aren’t everything and that it’s what inside that really counts. Sometimes that’s the case with cars but a lot of times, well, it’s not. Sure, it’s great to have both but if you don’t want to spend a ton of money on vehicle you might be settling with one or the other — maybe neither. Today’s 1997 Mercedes-Benz E300 in Wisconsin has it’s fair share of exterior flaws and wasn’t the most handsome car to begin with, but it’s got a good soul and is ready for many miles of dependability.

Please read through the ad, I’m going to do my best to describe what this car is all about. Most ads I’m seeing are honest looking looks with a lot of hidden nonsense. This is an honest car with everything put up front.
I’ll also preface this by saying this car has very typical W210 body rust problems. They do not extend to the underside of the car, surprisingly! The entire underside has been treated multiple times and show’s no sign of troubles. The rockers are solid, the spring perches are perfect, and the control arms are newer. So all the major rust concerns on the car have been addressed and are kept up on. My next step with this car would be body work, but it’s time to move on.
I have an autocheck printed out from a year or so ago, if I remember right I’m the 6th or 7th owner (hopefully you can verify this through eBay’s autocheck) but the car had two accidents in the early 00’s….BY THE SAME LADY, a month or so apart!!!
One of the great questions in my life is, after the massive success of the W123 300TD, why Mercedes-Benz decided to import the W124 300TD for one year only to the United States in 1987. Maybe it was too expensive as it cost $42,500, which is a whopping $91,000 in 2017 buying power. Whatever the reason aside, this caused Mercedes-Benz diesel lovers to this day to snag these W124s up and keep them as long as possible. So when I was alerted to an imported 250TD that also had a manual transmission, I had to check it out.

Up for auction, an ultra rare 1990 Mercedes 250TD 5 Speed (Factory original), equipped with A/C and power sunroof and leather.
The vehicle was part of an estate that I acquired a while ago in Barcelona (Spain).

Smart buyer will “Buy it now” and run with it. EXCELLENT BUY. NONE FOR SALE, BE SMART !
The Mercedes was seating in a climate controlled garage. The vehicle is extremely nice as seen on the pictures, I would say; way above average ! Being an import, the gauges are still in KM.
The black leather seats are in outstanding condition, headliner and carpeting as well as the cargo space all nice.
Paint is very shinny, NO fading.
Paint is original.
A/C blow very cold
Straight as an arrow
All electric works
Pneumatic locking works
No bearing noises, no shaking at high speed
Mechanically wise, the car runs and drive as it should, very smooth ride 35MPG+ diesel.
Earlier this week I looked at a ex-military Mercedes G-Wagen in a 1987 240GD. Today is another 1987 ex-military G-Wagen but this one is setup to be a little more livable — at least for what it is. Unlike Monday’s truck, this one has a roof, a radio and is even capable of keeping up with traffic. But let’s not get carried away, you are still a long way away from cruising to the mall while taking photos for Instagram with your Starbucks cup leaning against the steering wheel. So let’s take a look at this Dutch 300GD.

G-zuna is very pleased to offer this nice G Wagon with Low Milage and in a unique shape
Very Rare Unique Overlander/Expedition
G Class with a Rebuild OM 603 Turbodiesel (Engine is redone)
Stick 5 and lots of features like the sandplates with hidden storageboxes, special sparewheel holder.
High and low gear
Warrior whinch with Plasmastrand and a very nice whinchbumper and together with the black Brushguard it looks really impressive.
Runningboards and Alloy in black. High-Jack in the storage box and lots of light on the car as you can see on the pictures.
Don’t get me wrong, this is still very much a bare bones G-Wagen where comfort is an afterthought. This truck was setup to work judging by all it’s accessories and specifically the built in storage boxes that fold open. That is something I rarely see even on the ex-military trucks. The engine is the OM603 3.5 liter diesel that was notorious for cracked heads and bent rods but according to the seller it was rebuilt so I’d assume a new head was fitted to fix this.
If you are shopping for a Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen, you have a couple choices. Those choices range from the military-spec models with steel floors and 65 horsepower to the “I had no idea that was even possible” G500 4×4² with portal axles and everything in between. Today’s G for sale outside of Philadelphia is one of those military-spec models that has been softened up a little just to make living with one of these bricks on wheels a little more bearable.
Engine: 2.2 liter inline-4
Transmission: 4-speed maunal

Well sorted 1987 Mercedes Benz 240 GD with only 26,XXX miles. Truck runs great and is a blast to drive. Everything works as is expected. Looks great with new interior, paint and soft top.
Power to the G-Wagen is provided by a naturally aspirated OM616 2.4 liter inline 4 cylinder diesel which is known for its durability. This is the engine that has received recognition for reaching the 1,000,000 mile mark without a rebuild.
The Transfer Case and Differential Lockers make this one of the most capable 4X4s on the market. Power flows through the transfer case which is adjustable on the fly – 4×2 High, 4×4 High, 4×4 Low. Front and Rear Differentials are lockable independently with pull knobs.
This 1987 240GD is a ex-military truck that has been modernized to the best of the sellers ability to make this G a little easier to live with day-to-day. It has a leather steering wheel and seats, a new fabric top and paint that isn’t camouflaged. But truth be told, this thing is still quite Spartan. It still has the tiny OM616 diesel engine, no radio or air conditioning, the floors are still steel and the toughest pill to sallow, it has a top of speed of about 55 mph.…
The W114 and W115 is looked at as the generation that came before the legendary W123 came along and cemented itself as one of the best vehicles ever produced. It’s not that the Stroke 8 are bad or anything, it’s just a tough comparison head to head against the W123. If anything, the W114/115 should be lauded as those cars featured the OM616 and non-turbocharged OM617 before being carried over into the new W123 chassis. Now that the newest W115 is 41 years old, a really nice one is hard to come by given they were used for all they had to give then tossed away due to their lack of collectibility. So when this 1970 220D for sale in Florida popped up, I had to take a closer look.

any question you can send a message
I can’t believe how great this car looks for 95,000 miles. The exterior shows fairly well but the interior and engine bay are nearly flawless. Either this car underwent a light restoration or the owner was fanatical about keeping it in perfect condition. Usually these cars are used as workhorses and don’t get pampered but this one is on another level.…
I never tire of a facelifted Mercedes-Benz W124. Once the shackles of ugly headlights were released, the W124 turned into quite the handsome sedan. If you combine the already great W124 with the OM606 diesel engine you are left with a package that extremely economically and something that can last a very long time. That’s exactly what we have today in this 1995 E300 for sale in Virginia.

Clean CarFax History
a well maintained Mercedes from their best era
I’ve owned this vehicle for the past five years, it’s treated me very well. I’ve recently purchased a newer car which is the reason for the sale.
When it comes to MPG, I usually get about 35/45 city/hwy — my best ever was traveling from Charlottesville to Charleston, SC; Car fully loaded with luggage with two people we got 900 miles worth of cruising range on a single tank.
The vehicle was extremely well optioned for its day: Has the full large sunroof, heated front seats, electric mirrors, electrically adjustable seats, drivers and passengers airbag, ABS, ASC (traction control). It does have an aftermarket headunit with a aux port so you can listen to music. It does have some BMW floor mats instead of the original mercedes mats.It has some minor wear and tear but all the photos included in this ad detail any of its minor imperfections. It’s a really honest and clean car considering it’s age. Everything works and there’s no known faults or issues.
Few things make more sense to me than a W123 300TD. In my opinion, it’s everything you might ever might need in a vehicle. Durability? This thing will probably outlive the majority of us. Practicality? You can haul enough bricks in it to finally build that brick pizza oven in the backyard you’ve always been dreaming about. Frugality? It gets 25 miles per gallon no matter what you do. Comfortable? The disintegrating horse hair seats will suck you right in with ease. I can go on and on about the wonderful W123 wagon, but you probably already know this. So what are you waiting for? Maybe this 1980 300TD for sale in California is the vehicle that finally makes sense.

We are offering up a 1980 Mercedes 300TD wagon. One owner blue and yellow California plate car. 233k original miles. Original owner passed away early 2016 and his family is selling the estate.
I am a amateur Mercedes enthusiast but I do know a little bit about Mercedes diesel. I have also had a very well known Mercedes Diesel mechanic look at the car. Engine is unbelievable! No blow by and purrs! Only pump diesel was used in this engine! The only thing we have done to the engine is a oil/filter change. Starts up quickly and runs down the road good. Drives straight and steering wheel is straight. Car is pretty impressive for almost being 40 years old.
Original owner was an electrical engineer and was his own mechanic on this Mercedes. All maintenance was performed by himself. Car has updated climate control which is a very big deal.
I’m always on the lookout for golden era Mercedes in rare colors to add to my small collection (more on that soon!). We’ve reached the point where despite millions of these cars being built and nearly all standing the test of time well, any nice one is starting to creep up in value — even more so if it’s in a color that isn’t earth tone. Today’s car that is up for sale in New York is the ultra-rare Inca Red paint that I’ve only seen on a handful of Mercedes over the years – let alone a W123 coupe.
I’ve always thought the early W463 Mercedes-Benz was the pinnacle of all the G-Wagens that made it to production. It has enough creature comforts to make you feel like you aren’t a member of the Slovak Republic Armed Forces on a counter-terrorism mission (seriously, 43 military organizations around the world use a G-Wagen) but not so many modern toys that everything is already broken inside it or at least on the verge of being. It has comfortable seats, a modern HVAC system, a nice stereo system and some real wood trim. You still got your choice of gas engines as well as a diesel that didn’t have 84 horsepower. Mercedes also gave you a choice of a five-door or a three-door and, perhaps most surprising, a three-door Cabriolet. Today is one of those convertibles for sale in Italy and since it’s a 1992, it’s only one month short of being eligible to be imported to the United States under the 25-year importation rule.
It’s amazing what happens to a car when you put fins on it. That’s what happened to the entry level line Mercedes-Benz in 1961. The W110 was a perfectly tame, conservatively styled basic sedan all the way up to the point past the rear axle then the fins come out and the crowd goes wild. Because of these fins, the W110 now carries the name ‘Heckflosse’ which is of course is German for ‘Fintail.’ These Heckflosse sedans were nothing special outside of the style point and Mercedes really didn’t plan for them to be their flagship. You had two options for the engine in a 1.9 liter gas four cylinder or the 2.0 liter diesel. Both a little under powered, but sturdy and dependable. With the newest of these cars just being almost 50 years old, the Heckflosse is starting to become more rare by the year. So let’s take a look at this wonderful 190D for sale in New Jersey.
