Description

FOR SALE IS A GORGEOUS 1984 MERCEDES-BENZ 300DT TURBODOIESEL WITH 240.085 ORIGINAL MILES! THE MERCEDES-BENZ W123 IS A RANGE OF EXECUTIVE CARS PRODUCED BY GERMAN MANUFACTURER MERCEDES-BENZ FROM NOVEMBER 1975 TO JANUARY 1986. THE W123 MODELS SURPASSED THEIR PREDECESSOR, THE MERCEDES-BENZ W114, AS THE MOST SUCCESSFUL MERCEDES, SELLING 2.7 MILLION UNITS LIKE ITS PREDECESSORS, THE W123 GAINED THE REPUTATION OF BEING WELL BUILT AND RELIABLE. MANY TAXI COMPANIES CHOSE THE W123, AND THEY WERE A COMMON SIGHT IN GERMANY. REACHING 500,000 OR 1,000,000 KM WITH ONLY MINOR MECHANICAL ISSUES WAS COMMON WITH W123S USED AS TAXICABS. ONCE THE W123 REACHED THE END OF ITS SERVICE LIFE, THEY WERE OFTEN SHIPPED TO AFRICA AND THIRD WORLD COUNTRIES WHERE THEY WERE HIGHLY ESTEEMED FOR THEIR ABILITY TO TRAVEL ON ROUGH ROADS AND TO NOT REQUIRE FREQUENT MAINTENANCE. THE OM617 ENGINE FAMILY IS A STRAIGHT-5 DIESEL AUTOMOBILE ENGINE FROM MERCEDES-BENZ USED IN THE 1970S AND 1980S. IT WAS SOLD IN VEHICLES FROM 1974 TO 1991. THE OM617 IS CONSIDERED TO BE ONE OF THE MOST RELIABLE ENGINES EVER PRODUCED WITH ENGINES OFTEN REACHING OVER 1,000,000 KM (620,000 MI) WITHOUT BEING REBUILT AND IS ONE OF THE KEY REASONS FOR MERCEDES' POPULARITY IN NORTH AMERICA IN THE 1980S, AS IT WAS POWERFUL AND RELIABLE COMPARED TO OTHER AUTOMOTIVE DIESELS OF THE TIME. IT IS ALSO A VERY POPULAR CHOICE FOR THE USE OF ALTERNATIVE FUELS, MAINLY STRAIGHT OR WASTE VEGETABLE OIL AND BIODIESEL, ALTHOUGH THE USE OF THESE FUELS MAY CAUSE ENGINE DAMAGE OVER TIME IF NOT PROCESSED PROPERLY BEFORE USE. THIS CAR IS BEAUTIFUL INSIDE AND OUT. IT COMES IN ONE OF ITS MOST RARE SOUGHT AFTER COLOR COMBINATIONS LIGHT IVORY WITH JAVA INTERIOR. IT IS TRULY A BEAUTIFUL AND SUPER ELEGANT CAR! THE PAINT LOOKS ALMOST FLAWLESS AND DEEP RICH AND SHINY FOR ITS AGE, WITH ONLY A FEW SMALL TOUCHUPS, WITH NO DINGS, DENTS OR DAMAGE. THE SEATS ARE ORIGINAL, AND YOU CAN FIND SOME SIGNS OF USE AND CRACKS. ALL BEZANO WOOD PARTS ARE IN GOOD CONDITION, WITH MINIMAL CRACKING. THE WHEELS LOOK LIKE GORGEOUS AND THE TIRES HAVE A LOT OF THREAD LEFT. WE HAVE SERVICED THE CAR THROUGHOUT AND IT NEEDS NOTHING BUT A NEW OWNER! THE MERCEDES HAS NOW NO KNOWN MECHANICAL ISSUES AT ALL! EVERYTHING WORKS AS IT SHOULD. THE A/C BLOWS ICE COLD AND THE STEERING IS VERY TIGHT. THE 300 TURBODIESEL DRIVES AND SHIFTS VERY SMOOTH LIKE YOU WOULD EXPECT FROM A LOW MILEAGE CLASSIC MERCEDES-BENZ. THIS IS A VERY NICE AND LOW MILEAGE (THEY USUALLY DRIVE EASILY 500,000 MLS) EXAMPLE OF A 300DT, DON'T LET THIS ONE SLIP AWAY. THE CAR HAS ONLY BEEN GENTLY USED AVERAGING 6,315 MILES A YEAR. WE TOOK A LOT OF PICTURES SO YOU CAN JUDGE FOR YOURSELF. THE CAR IS CURRENTLY DRIVEN FOR TEST DRIVES, SO THE MILEAGE AT THE DATE OF SALE MIGHT BE SLIGHTLY HIGHER. EMAIL ME WITH ANY QUESTIONS OR CALL ME AT 239-771-0057 (KLAUS). WILL PICK UP BUYER FROM FORT MYERS AIRPORT AND HELP WITH SHIPPING. WE AT TOP CLASSIC CARS LLC ARE COMMITTED TO EXCELLENCE AND WE TAKE PRIDE IN THE VEHICLES WE ARE SELLING. WE THOROUGHLY INSPECT ALL OUR VEHICLES BEFORE THEY LEAVE OUR DEALERSHIP!
