This 1983 Mercedes-Benz 300D Turbodiesel was originally sold in Virginia where it remained until 2010 when it was moved to New York. In 2018, the car was relocated to Georgia and is currently offered by the selling dealer out of Atlanta, GA as a two-owner example. Finished in Classic White (737) over a Blue MB-Tex (152) interior, power comes from by a 3.0-liter turbodiesel inline-five paired with a four-speed automatic transmission. Features include a painted power sunroof, automatic climate control, an updated head unit with new speakers, and power windows, locks, and passenger side mirror. The air conditioning has been updated and converted to R134 and a complete fluid flush was perfromed in preparation for the sale. This W123 shows just under 68k miles and is offered with factory literature, a clean Carfax report, and a clean Georgia title.
