Description for Mercedes-Benz 300-Series 1985

1985 Mercedes-Benz300TD Wagon

When only the finest example of the legendary W123 Turbodiesel Wagon will do... this is it

Exceptionally rare and highly sought after 1985 Mercedes-Benz 300TD Wagon. This W123 Turbodiesel Wagon combines the bulletproof reliability of the OM617 iron head engine with a powerful turbocharger. Only Mercedes diesels produced in 1981 to 1985 offered this extremely robust combination of reliability and performance. 1985 represents the final year of production for this iconic Mercedes, and these are by far the rarest and most desirable of the W123 Turbodiesels. Only in 1985 did W123 wagons receive a much taller rear axle ratio to boost economy along with a higher torque converter stall speed to help the turbocharger boost more rapidly. Both of these additions created a greatly improved driving experience.

Always meticulously maintained, this wagon starts immediately with the turn of the key without any hesitation, shaking or smoke. The 3.0L Inline 5 cylinder Turbodiesel engine produces excellent power, and shifts are precise and timely. The steering is tight and agile. The suspension is controlled and supple and the rear self-leveling system functions correctly. It brakes well without pulling or pulsations.

This wagon is fresh from an extensive service including:

Fresh Oil Change and Filter

New Primary and Secondary Fuel Filters

Fresh Brake Fluid Flush

New Brake Pads and Sensors Front and Rear

New Engine Mounts

New Glow Plugs

Complete Valve Adjustment

This example is fitted with the very rare factory third-row seat option complete with headrests and three-point seatbelts. All of the other options on this wagon work including all of the power windows and vacuum operated locks. The climate control functions properly, but will need a recharge to blow cold. The cruise control works intermittently. Comes complete with an updated Pioneer radio, but the outside antenna will need to be replaced. The metallic gold paint and chrome accents shine brilliantly and there is zero rust anywhere on this vehicle. All of the wheel wells, doors and door jams, floorboards, and entire undercarriage are completely corrosion free. This wagon smells clean on the inside and there are no leaks, including the sunroof. This Turbodiesel wagon is turn-key ready, extremely safe and reliable and an absolute blast from the past to drive!

Although in excellent condition overall, this is a vintage car and will naturally show signs of use and age. Please refer to the more than 120 pictures that I have of the car below. Additionally, two walk-around videos can be viewed by copying and pasting the following links into your browser:



This very rare and extremely well-maintained Mercedes-Benz W123 Turbodiesel Wagon represents an exceptional investment; because of its general scarcity and desirability, experts agree that these W123 Turbodiesel Wagons are sure to significantly appreciate in value in the coming years. Examples in as fine of condition as this one are especially uncommon to find.
