1980 Mercedes Benz w123 300D, 3005cc. Registration number GOJ 98W. Chassis number 123 13022178192. Engine number 61791222093785. Like its predecessors, W123 gained the reputation of being over-engineered, well-built, durable, and reliable. Many taxi companies chose W123 for this reason, and they were common sight in Germany. Reaching 1,000,000 km with minor mechanical issues was common. All engines from W114/W115 are carried over. The single new engine was SOHC 2.5-litre M123 inline six. The 3-litre five-cylinder diesel engine received a proper nomenclature for W123, matching the engine displacement: 300 D instead of 240 D 3.0 on previous W114/W115. GOJ was with Peggy Francis of Sutton Coldfield in 1986 before moving to David Hodgkiss and our vendor bought it some five years ago. He embarked on a restoration which included a glass out/interior out respray from 2016. This has stalled and although the moves under its own steam with no issues he has not completed the refit of the interior. It is believed all parts will be with the car. Comprehensive MOT history and receipts confirm the correct mileage of only some 61,000 and once completed this classic Mercedes will be a very handsome car. Sold with the V5C, old MOT's and receipts and a quantity of spares.
PLEASE NOTE: This car is parked in postcode area YO30 should anyone want to cost re-logistics.
