At $2900, I thought I paid to much for a 5-speed 300TD, but maybe it was a bargain after all!

Happy Motoring, Mark

With euro lights and bumpers, ABS, the 3rd seat, headrests, crank windows and manual aircon, 4 speed manual,this is the one diesel wagon the W123 fanciers would want


With 47 bids no wonder the price got run up.

With good the good condition, that history, and equipment I think it is a score if you think that what you paid now for it won't matter much in another ten years.


It is a car you would keep that long, or more

So is the euro non-turbo just as slow as a NA north american 123's? curious. That could be a "bamboo" interior...

I like the milage claim. 30 in town over 30 hwy.

more powerful than the turbo eng.

some one changed the cluster gauge on the left. has the silver button in the middle.

not a bad price when you figure the dollar is only worth maybe .40 so it really sold for $4200.00.

Engine power

Anybody know why that non-turbo engine would be more powerful than a US TD?

Private auctions are always suspicious...$5 says the same car shows up on ebay again soon from the same seller crying about a deadbeat bidder not paying (as in he shilled it up and got stuck being the high bidder).
