The odometer reads 250K. With proper care and maintenance this vehicle will continue to give you enjoyment and fulfill its purpose indefinitely. A detailed spreadsheet of work performed by an ASE certified Mercedes technician as well as receipts for OEM parts for the vehicle will be made available to perspective buyers. The pictures will give you an idea of the condition of this car, but you owe it to yourself to drive it and then you will fully understand.

Over the past few years, we’ve seen a couple of these five-door W123s sell and prices have stayed rather steady. Higher mileage isn’t so much of a concern with these cars, but condition is key. This 300TD is rather attractive, then, as you’ll avoid the high cost of a low-mileage example but you get a perfectly usable vehicle in good shape that you won’t be afraid to use. Values for later model examples of the 300TD have been hovering in the $10,000 to $15,000 range, so this one is priced just about right, considering its level of presentation.
