A Deeper Dive into the Mercedes-Benz W123 1976-1985

Mercedes-Benz is a staple in the automotive industry. From classic models to modern day, they have always been known for their luxurious styling and performance. One of their most successful models ever is the W123 series from 1976-1985. The W123 series was the successor to the first generation of Mercedes-Benz cars, the W114 and W115. It was a huge hit with buyers, selling around 2.7 million units worldwide between 1976 and 1985.

The W123 was available in four body styles – coupé, long wheelbase sedan, transport and touring (estate or station wagon) – and two engine types – diesel and gasoline. Its exterior features were simple yet elegant, with round sealed beam headlights and fog lamps for US versions and solid front lenses for European versions

One of the best things about the W123 was its uncompromising reliability; it is known to have lasted well over 200k miles without major problems due to its robust construction and engine design. This is why many classic car enthusiasts choose this model as their restoration project since they know they won’t be spending thousands of dollars on repairs or maintenance for a long time!

There’s no doubt that the Mercedes Benz W123 series was one of their most successful models ever produced during its 10 year production span. Its popularity speaks for itself proving that good design does indeed matter!
