The American poet Robert Frost once wrote: “In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life: it goes on.” Frankly, I can’t think of a better tagline for the Mercedes-Benz W123, either. It really does go on. And on. And on. We’re written a lot about these iconic Mercedes sedans, coupes and estates, but these cars have a timeless appeal backed up by frugal engines. This final year 300CD coupe has the 3.0 liter turbocharged inline-5 diesel under the hood. It might not be a terribly fast car, but it blends economy with a level of class you just can’t match in most modern cars. This particular car for sale in Arizona is a one-owner example with a low 64,500 miles on the clock.

From the pictures, this appears to be an honest, no excuses late model W123 coupe. Red might seem a bit brash for such a dignified machine, but with the Palomino interior, it works. There’s another 300CD that we featured on GCFSB that is still active with two days left in the auction and is closing in on $12,000 with about two days left. This particular 300CD is newer, has less miles and is a one-owner car, so with all those positives, we’re probably looking at a value somewhere around the $14,000 to $16,000 range.
