1984 Mercedes-Benz 300D

About eight years ago, I had the chance to visit the Mercedes-Benz Museum outside of Stuttgart, Germany. Of all the exhibits, the one that intrigued me the most was a car transporter with models from the early 1980s on it, including a W123 230E sedan in the same metallic blue as we see here on this well-preserved 1984 300D. We’ve poured over the qualities that make these mid-sized Mercedes sedans, coupes and estates great throughout the years, but rarely do they come as showroom fresh as this one for sale in California.

1982 Mercedes-Benz 300TD

Having just embarked on a summer road trip, my thoughts wandered while driving towards fuel economy. My MINI Cooper S certainly does well enough, but sometimes you want something a bit more suited for cruising. Which is where this Mercedes-Benz 300TD comes in. It’s not the fastest car out there, but once up to cruising speed, it’s a capable motor with the range and reliability of diesel power and a good amount of carrying capacity. This particular 300TD for sale in California has been converted to run on biodiesel and is a two owner car, having lived its live out in the western US.

1983 Mercedes-Benz 300D with 35k miles

Given all the fuss surrounding the recent GM recall hearings on Capitol Hill, I can’t help but think that the probability of these sorts of issues coming from all manufacturers in the future is higher, simply due to the added complexity of cars and the technology they are packing as compared to years prior. I hate to be one that eschews technological advancements, but take a look at cars from a few decades back, specifically the 1980s and 1990s, and you’ll see that a good balance between technology and simplicity was achieved while retaining driver involvement. Mercedes-Benz has always been a bit ahead of the curve when it comes to technology, but one of their most revered vehicles of recent memory is the W123, if based solely on one factor: durability.

This 1983 Mercedes-Benz 300D for sale in New Jersey is one of the lowest mileage examples we’ve ever featured here on GCFSB. We’ve featured a lot of sedans, coupes and estates in varying states of condition and have noticed that prices are on the move, if not in an E30 M3 type frenzy. Look up durability in the dictionary and this car’s picture is beside that entry.
