The condition of this Mercedes is amazing!

While its odometer exceeds 1.25 million kilometers traveled and it approaches fifty, the condition of this Mercedes is simply impeccable!

It is not uncommon to see Mercedes from the 70s with very high odometers. They date from a time when cars were simpler, without electronics. Their diesel engine was designed to swallow the miles without flinching. The mechanical aspect is one thing, but time does not seem to have had a hold on the body of this copy.. It is in a condition close to its original state, when it was still in concession in 1979! This Mercedes was recently auctioned off in the United States on Bring a Trailer.

An ancestor of the E-Class

This “granny” is a Mercedes Type 123 station wagon. This is the ancestor of the current E-Class. Its 5-cylinder in-line 3-liter engine develops the incredible power of 77hp! Yes, it was another time. This cavalry is sent to the rear wheels thanks to a 4-speed automatic transmission. Its red exterior color called Medium Red is associated with a cognac-colored interior in MB-Tex, an extremely resistant vinyl of which Mercedes had the secret.


Impeccable condition, but which did not unleash the crowds

The mechanics are also in immaculate condition, you only have to look at the photos of the engine compartment and the chassis to realize how well it has been maintained. The previous owners did not let her sleep in their garage, far from it! Acquired in 2006, the couple added nearly 250,000 km to their odometer! Even if this kind of announcement is nice to see, this car did not unleash the crowds. It sold for $ 9,123, or less than € 7,500 at the current exchange rate.
