West Coast Classics are proud to present an absolutely exceptional example of this 1983 Mercedes-Benz 300D 3.0L 5 cylinder 4 Door Turbo Diesel Sedan in its original factory 'Champagne Metallic' (Color Code 473) color paint with a striking and flawless 'Palomino' color MB-Tex interior, original Mercedes Benz factory 'Bundt' style alloy wheels and only 110K original miles!

Purchased and originally serviced at 'Fletcher Jones Mercedes Benz' the Mercedes-Benz dealership of Las Vegas, NV on 10/10/1983 with all of its original owners manuals, dealer stamped maintenance booklet and factory tools available. The car was initially serviced whilst under warranty/contract and then for many years beyond at 'Jim Slemons Imports', the Mercedes-Benz dealership of Newport, CA and later at 'Coast Mercedes' of Costa Mesa, CA where it has been comprehensively inspected and reconditioned as required over recents years as required. We have sold many examples of the 123 300D series over the years and this is one exceptionally well preserved original southern California owner example. The car boasts a clean Carfax report confirming the car's low original mileage and service history.

The Mercedes-Benz W126 is a now legendary series of flagship vehicles manufactured by Mercedes-Benz until 1991 and was a successor to the earlier W116 series and was offered in a straight six, V8 and the now renown diesel models. The 1981-85 diesel models are now universally considered to be one of the most reliable engines ever produced in the world and one of the key reasons for Mercedes popularity around the world today as the ultimate long distance and durable touring car with many models still being used around the globe as taxi cabs or otherwise boasting many hundreds of thousands of miles on the clock. They offered a unique combination of luxury, exclusivity, economy and reliability that could not possibly be matched by any other brand making it the vehicle of choice by countless diplomats, executives and other such entities. These luxurious cars still command a strong demand internationally, especially low mileage and well maintained and unabused examples such as this particular example. They are known for their near indestructibility, build quality and vault like construction.

This particular car was obviously always garaged by its previous southern California family owners and the original factory 'Champagne Metallic' color paint is in excellent condition as is the original 'Palomino' interior with the original dashboard having always been covered as was the rear shelf and with the wood veneer in beautiful original shape (obviously always garaged and covered from any elements).

The car's factory options include 5 cylinder Turbo Diesel engine, automatic transmission, power assisted steering, power assisted four wheel disc brakes, tinted glass, cruise control, electric window lifts, electrically heated rear window, fully independent suspension, power assisted four wheel disc brakes, anti-lock brakes, automatic antenna, automatic air conditioning with climate control, central locking, power mirror, power antenna, factory sunroof and desirable factory 'Bundt' alloy wheels.

The car drives exactly like such a well maintained and serviced Mercedes-Benz Diesel with only 110K original miles (very low original mileage for these notoriously hard driven vehicles and virtually just broken in for this legendary engine) and must be seen and driven to be truly appreciated! The engine is extremely strong and the temperature always remains cool. All the power options are working as they should including the the air conditioning and the optional sunroof (an expensive factory option in 1983).


Without a doubt, this is one of the finest built cars ever made by Mercedes-Benz or indeed any other luxury car manufacturer, now becoming more desirable (with only 25 MPG city and 30 MPG highway) than ever before - certainly you will look long and hard to find a finer and original southern owner example with very low original and well maintained miles and with every option working as it should available anywhere else!
