If you’re interested in the “W123” Mercedes-Benz 300TD, which was sold from the mid-1970s to the mid-1980s and has captured the hearts and minds of car enthusiasts ever since, you’ll want to check this out. This is a 1984 300TD in excellent shape, with just 95,000 miles — basically nothing for one of these. And it’s probably the nicest 300TD you’ll find.
This 300TD is offered by LGE Auto Sales in Wilton Manors, Florida, near Fort Lauderdale, and it’s silver with a blue interior. The blue interior has held up unbelievably well over the years, largely thanks to Mercedes-Benz’s “MBTex” interior material, which never seems to wear. Then again, it’s probably also thanks to this car’s mileage: It’s traveled just 94,900 miles in 34 years, equating to a supercar-like 2,800 miles a year.
As usual, the Carfax report shines some light on how this car was preserved so well — though due to the car’s age, records don’t go back to its original sale. Instead, the first record is from 2002 in Princeton, New Jersey, when this 300TD had only 46,900 miles. It appears the owner then moved (likely retired) to Florida in 2008, and brought the car along. While the Carfax report doesn’t seem to indicate it’s a 1-owner vehicle, it seems that one person did own it from around 2002 until recently.
This 300TD is currently offered for $17,900, which may seem like a lot for a used Mercedes-Benz — but these 300TD wagons are prized by enthusiasts for their reliable diesel powertrains, their practical wagon body style and their “old school” image, before Mercedes-Benz models added plastic parts and technology. For someone, this will be the ultimate family car — and it’ll likely run for years to come. Find a Mercedes-Benz 300 TD for sale
