1982 MERCEDES-BENZ “123” 300TD STATION WAGON. #WDBAB93A0CN009374. (Stock #4313.) In 1978, Mercedes-Benz introduced the 300D “Estate”, a very handsome station wagon which has withstood the test of time amazingly well. In 1982, Mercedes-Benz applied their extensive engine turbo-charging technology to this car with a 3-litre, 5-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine. The car was an instant success and has continued to be greatly appreciated to this day. In fact, it has attained almost a cult status and is appreciated by enthusiasts and the general public alike. It has attained a reputation as one of the toughest and most reliable cars in the world. Reports of million-miles plus are not at all uncommon and most assume that the engine of a well-cared-for 300TD-T will not have to be disassembled for at least 500,000 miles. The cars are also incredibly versatile with a large storage compartment available behind the two rows of seats–huge when the second row of seats is folded forward. The inline 5-cylinder engine with 4-speed automatic transmission will cruise at any highway speeds all day long and the road feel of the car is excellent on highway family tours, back country roads or around-town outings. With power steering, 4-wheel power disc brakes, cruise control, climate control, electric windows and locks, etc., the car feels way ahead of its time. Neat touches such as “Town and Country” horns and extensive polished wood interior trim, optional electric sunroof and chrome roof rails just add to the car's character. Our car is an amazing example of just how good these cars are and how a well-maintained example can still drive and look almost as new after 40+ years and 165,000+ miles. Finished in almost unmarked original “Pastel Beige” (684) with original Palomino MB Tex interior, which can almost pass as new, the car is in total extraordinary condition. 165,425 miles. $39,000.
