the seller claims that its a non-turbo ? ok given its claimed Euro roots, but wows that thing must be 240D-slow.

I have a 1984 w123 300d non turbo, John. MB made plenty of non turbo 617's right up to the end of the w123. The right hand drive w123 were not delivered to Australia as the turbo was too close to the steering box & the heat was likely to kill the power steering.

Good find. Horrible wheels for a w123. First thing it needs are some hubcaps or bundts.
This area is typically used to brag about one's current or former automobiles.

I agree, it needs 15" bundts. I really dislike those wheels of a W123.

I prefer the hub caps above all.

Are there no seat belts for those middle seats?

I bid on it but got out bid petty quickly. Just got an email that all bids were cancelled. Must have sold early.

Somebody about 3 blocks from me has a white 123 long version. No trunk badge, so I'm not sure if it is gas or diesel.
