Frybird: 1983 Mercedes-Benz W123 300CD Two Door Coupe – SOLD!

September 2020 Update – We’re busy updating our database accurately reflect the status of every car we’ve featured since starting  This Mercedes we first featured in November 2019 has since sold.

While its no secret we’ve featured a number of Mercedes’ W123 diesel-powered wagons, a coupe version such as the one we found listed on Craigslist in New Holland, Pennsylvania is a rare find.  The caretaker of this 299,00 original mile, red over black leather 1983 300CD  is currently asking $8,500 for. A review of the Hagerty Insurance Online Valuation Tool for this Mercedes reveals the current caretaker has his coupe priced $1,500 above the #3 “Good” estimate of $7,000.

While just under 300,000 miles on just about any other car is nearly impossible to attain without a powertrain rebuild, it’s a good warm-up for these W123 Mercedes.  What really intrigued us about this example is that in addition to originally being what appears to be a rust-free Arizona car, the seller plans to include over one hundred gallons of waste vegetable oil and a centrifuge/filtering unit to facilitate you continuing to run this 300CD on waste vegetable oil.  While you’ll never go fast in one of these 300CDs, you’ll be coddled in comfortable luxury as you travel between restaurants in your new hunt for used cooking oil to fuel your Mercedes.  Good luck with the purchase!

Here’s the seller’s description:

“1983 Mercedes 300CD Biodiesel “FRYBRID”. 299,000 mi. Rust free. Car shipped to PA from AZ in 2013. Garaged and never driven in snow. Well maintained. All service records/receipts since new.
