With nearly 2.7 million cars produced, Mercedes' W123 series was hugely
successful. As well as the practical saloon (sedan), Mercedes offered a
stylish coupe and a roomy estate (wagon), which was built in-house for
the first time. Often considered the marque's best-engineered cars of
all time, they are increasingly sought after as modern classics, yet
many are still suitable to drive every day. From the taxi ranks of
Germany to the dusty roads of North Africa, many of these cars have led
a hard life, and examples in good condition are becoming ever more
difficult to find.
This guide will help you learn about the differences between models, and
what to look for when buying. What are the true running costs, and what
issues - with the mechanicals, body or interior - should you be wary of?
Is a restoration worth considering?
This handy guide will take you step-by-step through the process of
finding and evaluating a good W123 and making a successful purchase.
Essential data and information about clubs and specialists will help you
look after and enjoy your W123 today.
Still modern enough to drive every day, Mercedes’ W123 combines timeless
elegance and unrivalled build quality. The only guide in English
specifically written to help the would-be buyer choose the right W123.
