We are proud to offer our 1984 Mercedes-Benz 300CD Turbo is finished in Champagne Metallic over Palomino leather and shows 196k+ miles after nearly 35 years with its original owner in Ohio. Power comes from a 3.0-liter turbodiesel inline-five paired with a 4-speed automatic transmission. I acquired last July and have since driven it approximately 5k miles as well as fitting a new water pump, fuel filters, General Altimax tires, and more which are indicated on service tickets which are available. This W123 coupe is offered with a clean Carfax report, partial records, and a Clean Kentucky title.

This coupe is finished in Champagne Metallic and was resprayed at some point under previous ownership according to the seller.Exterior features include a sunroof and chrome trim on the mirrors, beltline, and bumpers.One minor paint bubble is visible under the side trim on the driver’s door.

Silver 14″ Bundt alloy wheels are mounted with new General Altimax tires at each corner. The stock US-market headlights have been swapped for European-style units. A dark aftermarket tint has been added to the windows.

Approximately 196k miles are shown on the 6-digit odometer, 191k of which were reportedly added by the original owner.

The turbocharged 3.0L turbodiesel inline-five is mated to a 4-speed automatic transmission.
