Originally supplied by Mitchell Cotts , Mercedes-Benz, Birmingham in August 1983, this beautiful car was purchased by a Midlands Roofing Company, as a company vehicle for it's owner and director. It was then bought by him, from his own company in October 1989. It then subsequently passed to the owners son in 2004 following the death of his father. The car was then sold in 2012 to a Mercedes enthusiast and friend of mine, who has continued to cosset the car and has taken it to various shows during his tenure. Just as a measure of how good this car is, it actually won best Saloon at The Mercedes Club W123 day a couple of years ago, even though the owner didn't formally enter it!. I've been trying to acquire this car for five years now, and at last the owner relented, and its here with me now.

This is now probably one of the best W123 saloons on offer, the condition is second to none and it's difficult to believe it's almost 34 years old. Every question you could possibly ask about regarding points to note on the W123, would be answered in the affirmative, as everything has been covered this including head gasket, timing chain, injectors, and a suspension rebuild. More importantly there's no corrosion, and the underside is more akin to a much younger vehicle. The service history file is both colossal and exhaustive and documents the vehicle's life.

It’s also the best W123 I've ever driven, and is tight and responsive on the move, with smooth gear changes. Steering is also very direct with none of the “wooly” play you usually get with this generation of Mercedes. The W123 230E with the fuel injected M102 2.3 litre, in line four cylinder engine is arguably the best engine choice for the model; it's stoically reliable, gives excellent performance yet returns decent fuel economy too.

I could write page upon page about this car, but hope the photos speak for themselves. Sure, you could buy a cheaper car but you’d have to spend a considerable amount of money and time to get it anywhere near to the standard of this vehicle.


Unlike some, I don't just simply go out, buy any old car, give it a good clean, then advertise it for more than the purchase price, disregarding any issues the car may have in the hope the new buyer won't notice...I just couldn't do that. The cars I source are carefully selected and I work very hard so that when my cars leave me, I have the satisfaction of knowing they are as good as they possibly can be within the constraints I have. As such I have many repeat customers and new customers that have been recommended via word of mouth...the ultimate accolade for anyone in business.

Any other questions, please feel free to contact me at [email protected] or on 07976 280738. I'm a firstly and foremostly a true Mercedes enthusiast of many, many years, and a Mercedes Club Member, so it's a pleasure to meet and speak to like-minded people.

Finally, I'm situated in Keighley, West Yorkshire (Postal Code Area BD21) which is approximately 11 miles from Skipton, and 20 miles West of Leeds.

All major debit/credit cards accepted.
