Designed by Bruno Sacco, Mercedes-Benz introduced the W123 chassis in four-door format in January, 1976 and while there were some technical similarities to their predecessors, the new models were larger in wheelbase and exterior dimensions.

The W123 model was manufactured from 1976 to 1985 and is to date the most successful selling Mercedes-Benz in history with some 2.7 million sold. Due to its instant popularity, nine months after its introduction, a black market had developed in Germany for Mercedes-Benz W123s available for immediate delivery due to the high demand. Customers willing to order new cars from their local authorized dealer for the recommended list price faced waiting times in excess of twelve months.

This beautiful 300D originally came from Texas and is powered by the legendary OM617.912 inline 5 cylinder diesel engine making 77hp and 115lb. ft of torque. With a little under 186,000 miles on the clock, this workhorse is barely broken in as they are known to routinely go 400,000-500,000 miles with basic maintenance. Speaking of maintenance, the all-important log book documents the complete maintenance of the car since 1977 at dealers in Texas, Missouri, and Michigan. Also included are the original books and manuals that came with the car new.

It sports its original rich brown interior and has received a high quality repaint in its original yellow hue. The car is equipped with A/C, power steering, power brakes, full power windows, and a sunroof. It is truly in immaculate condition and what better way to have some fun than cruising in a classic Mercedes-Benz.
