1983 Mercedes-Benz 230E (W123)

Tidy example owned by father and son since 2001, restored not to long ago and used sparingly since; 'Dad-y' registration included; very smart example

Dating from May 1983 this later third series (from Sept’82) model 230E hails from the W123 generation and comes to us finished in Gold sat upon its original 14” steel wheels with body coloured hub caps.

Under the bonnet sits the later, fuel injected M102 E23 2.3 litre four-cylinder petrol engine which develops 134Bhp and 205NM of torque driving the rear wheels here via four-speed automatic transmission.

Inside, we find beige cloth seats that match the body colour and matching carpets.  The dash features Zebrano wood trim, electric passenger mirror, manual windows and electric sunroof along with fitment of a more modern Kenwood radio/CD player.

The car shows 124,556 miles which have been covered by our vendor and his father who have owned the car between them since 2001.  The history file includes the V5C revealing just three former keepers to our vendor (one of the former being his father) and five old MOTs.  The car’s current MOT is valid until July 2023 and recorded no advisories (no advisories have been recorded since 1 minor in 2014) and reveals the car to have covered but a few hundred miles per year for the past six years at least.

Our vendor had the car restored a few years ago but has unfortunately lost the invoices, however the general condition of the car remains very good indeed with only a few cosmetic imperfections as pictured.

Ready to be enjoyed this is a tidy and most usable example that comes with a fun number plate almost reading “Dad-y” if you squint hard enough ;)
