This is a car for someone who wants to get in at the low end of the Mercedes W123 240D Market and have control of expenses, yet be able to join collectors without a huge investment.
Its strong suit is the body, virtually rust-free. I am selling so I can buy the best S123 Estate in North America.
Collector 240D W123s (1977 to 1985)-as this model is known- are getting very expensive-check Hagerty Valuation: from $4,400.00 to $28,000.00 U.S. dollars. They have gone up hugely in price in the last 2 years. The survival rate of the very good ones is low.
Classic Collectable--"now coveted as classics, or if in poor condition being kept in safety until owners feel the market will reward them sufficiently for a sale."
Visibility--". . . an easy car to place on the road, its extremities visible to the driver."
Driving--"The delight of these cars is the relaxed content state of mind that immerses you behind the wheel. It is always good to drive a 123,..." p. 25 in the Winter, 2019 edition of Classic Mercedes.
