Lot location
1981 Mercedes 200 (W123) The Mercedes 200 series (W123) were produced from November 1975 to January 1986. Their popularity lead to over 2.7 million units being produced. This four-door saloon having the 2.0 litre engine with manual gearbox and factory-fitted sunroof is beautifully presented in Primrose yellow with matching wheel centres. The tank-like build coupled with the sprung seats and tightness of the transmission, make for a safe and secure, driving experience, as only offered by German cars of this period. And having covered an average of only 1600 miles per year (70597 total) -this genuinely no-reserve example should be on everyone's watchlist... Only 2 previous keepers- and forming part of an impressive private collection of modern classic cars. A very fine example of the German staple in remarkably good original condition throughout.
