The Mercedes-Benz W123 is one of those few cars that blends luxury and practicality in one stoic package. If a W123 could play a round of poker, you probably would have a hard time getting a read on it. These are cars that go the distance with little complaint. While many have been run for hundreds of thousands of miles, some looking worse for wear than others, this 1979 300TD for sale in New Jersey is a remarkable survivor.

If I was in the market for a 300TD, I’d most certainly target a later, turbocharged variant. But, beggars can’t be choosers and this certainly is one of the best examples of the breed we have featured here on GCFSB. We’ve seen W123 estates in good shape typically pull in the $12,000 to $15,000 range, but if I had to guess, this one is certainly going to glance $20,000, if not a little bit more. So while everyone is packing up their anonymous SUVs for the annual summer beach trip, why not take the road less traveled and arrive in class with a preserved 300TD like this. You may arrive a bit late, since it’s not the fastest machine, but you’ll certainly make an entrance.
