    WOW! It has been a long time since we have seen a W123 Series Mercedes Diesel as nice and with such low mileage as this one! This 1983 240D Diesel Sedan has only had 2 or 3 owners since new in 1983 (34 years ago)! The original owner owned it from 1983-1989. The second owner owned it from 1983 to at least 2005, but from what we understand (even though Carfax shows a third owner) it is actually the same second owner who sent this 240D from his Summer home to his Winter home in Florida in 2005 before trading it on a new vehicle in 2016! Either way it is still very impressive to see so few owners on a vehicle of this vintage.


    This 1983 MB 240D is finished in Classic White with matching Henna Red MB Tex Interior. We have tested all of the power features and pretty much everything is in good working order. Yes, the power sunroof, power windows, power door locks, power antenna, power steering, power brakes, cold air conditioning, Becker stereo, headlights, fog lights, wipers, horn, etc. all work great! Here are some minor things we noted: The passenger side power mirror tries to work, but not so well. Also the same for the cruise control, it tries to kick in, but just can’t hold speed. And finally the tripometer sticks at 9.9 like so many of these cars tend to do as they have aged. We have also road tested this Mercedes Benz 240D and boy is it fast! Ok, not really, it is probably one of the slowest cars you will ever drive, after all it only has 63 horsepower if I remember correctly. But boy are these cars dependable! In town or cruising down the highway at 65 mph this is a very solid driving example of a classic W123 series Mercedes Benz. There is a reason that after 34 years so many of these cars are still on the road every day, they are that good!


    The exterior is in very good overall condition. The paint looks to be original or largely original and as such it will show normal wear or patina as any car of this vintage would show. After all this is not a restored show car. The body is very clean overall, but there are two things I want to point out. First you can see the creases on the left front fender as pictured. I wanted our dent guy to remove them, but he said “this thing is built like a tank” and was not able to do it. They truly do not build cars like this anymore! Second there are a number of small hail dings on the top surfaces, mainly on the trunk lid. Being that the car is white they really blend in well and do no stand out, but they are there and have probably been there for years or even decades. The bumpers, moldings, chrome grille, etc. all look great too. Also all of the lenses, headlights, and fog lights are all in exceptionally nice condition. Even all of the glass, including the front windshield is all original from 1983, very impressive! The factory wheels & original painted wheel covers are mated to a BRAND NEW set of 4 Goodyear All Season Tires that we just installed! A very nice looking 240D indeed!


    The interior is also very good overall condition. The Henna Red MB Tex is probably the rarest interior color to be seen on W123 series Mercedes. The seats are all clean and in very nice condition front to back. The most impressive feature to me is that all of the seats front to back are FIRM, you do not “sink” down when sitting on them! The dash and original Zebra wood trim all look quite nice with only some minor cracking as pictured. The carpets are clean and look good too. Even the matching light colored headliner looks super as well! Not too many left that are this nice these days!


    This 1983 240D has just gone through our in house service shop and we spent nearly $1,500 on parts & labor to make this modern day classic as nice as possible! Services included a Safety Inspection, a Fresh Oil & Filter Service, 4 New Tires, a Front End Wheel Alignment, New Rear Exhaust, New Brake Lines, Lots Of New Suspension Parts Including Many Upper & Lower Links, Bushings, Etc. and many other minor updates as well! Best Of All WE ARE SELLING THIS Classic 1983 240D AT NO RESERVE AND STARTING AT JUST $99! That’s right this Mercedes will be SOLD REGARDLESS OF PRICE this week on eBay! Thanks for looking and good luck with the auction.

    ***RULES & REGULATIONS***

    Who are you? We are The Car Man Company. We are family owned & operated and work very hard to make you happy and make sure you have an enjoyable eBay purchase! We are located at 7221 W. Broad St. in Richmond, VA 23294. If you need directions from your location to ours just go to Mapquest. You are always welcome to come by and see the vehicle you are interested in, but not all vehicles are on site at all times as some may still be out being serviced during the auction. So please let us know in advance if you are coming to see a particular vehicle so it will be there for you to view.

    What about any questions I may have? If you have any questions about one of our vehicles or our terms & conditions please email us through ebay. Please make sure the email address you have on file with eBay is current. If it is not current when we reply it will bounce back and you will not get a response of course. We answer ALL emails in a very timely manner. If you do not hear from us it is not because we did not answer you, it is an email issue.

    Can anyone bid? We welcome all registered eBay bidders to participate in our auctions. Yes, even all INTERNATIONAL bidders are welcome too! While many sellers will not sell to International bidders, we do! We have completed many International transactions, not only just in Canada, but all over the world! Please be advised however that in most cases International bidders will have to arrange their own shipment of the vehicle out of the country, but we will help when we can.

    What should I expect when buying a used vehicle? This is a reminder to all bidders. These vehicles are USED vehicles and are not new. Please expect a certain amount of wear, use, and flaws as is standard on ANY used car. All used cars including this one may have: dings, dents, nicks, chips, glass marks, paint fading, paint scratches, previous paintwork, accident history, unibody damage, tire wear, rust, undercarriage wear and grime, wheel and rim imperfections, or any other issues that are associated with use that is consistent with age and mileage of the vehicle. Obviously a car that is 10+ years old will show more wear and have more flaws than one that is 2 years old. Since these vehicles are used, please remember that owners manuals, extra keys, remote entry keys, navigation discs, cd cartridges, floor mats, etc...do not always remain with vehicles throughout their life. We will not be responsible for these minor accessories. These items are all replaceable at any local factory dealer, electronic store, or even on eBay.

    What about the vehicle’s history report? We often use these services to check a vehicles background. Carfax and Autocheck are wonderful services, but they have their limitations. Many times they will show more “owners” than we may state a vehicle has had. This is because they are an information service only. They have never seen the car, owned the car, and have no other information about the car than what is reported from different agencies. All of this information is originally hand entered into their databases at their source and mistakes and inconsistencies will occur! For example when a dealer such as ourselves purchases a vehicle they may pick it up as a new owner when this is of course not the case as dealers are not end users. Also they often contain mileage errors are inconsistencies that appear to make little sense. Just like any computer generated information report you need to know how to read the report & when to read between the lines. Having seen thousands of these over the years we can help you understand the information listed in these reports, just ask.

    Can you explain your as-is / warranty policy? All vehicles are being sold as-is, where is with no warranty, expressed or implied. The seller shall not be responsible for correctness of description, authenticity, genuineness, or defects herein, and makes no warranty in connection therewith. Any and all descriptions or representations are for identification purposes only and are not to be construed as a warranty of any type. Your bid is binding under applicable statute. The buyer assumes all responsibility for all defects known and unknown. The seller assumes no responsibility for any repairs, defects or damages pre-existing or otherwise regardless of any oral or written statements about the vehicle. The buyer has no right of rescission and is not entitled to any compensation for known or unknown, or disclosed, or undisclosed damage or repairs. Do not bid if you are not prepared to conclude your purchase. All information and comments contained within the vehicle listings are deemed reliable, but are not guaranteed. We try very hard to make sure they are as accurate as possible. If an option or feature is not listed in the ad or you do not see it in the pictures, then the vehicle most likely does not have that option or feature. We do not want you to be unhappy with your purchase but at the same time you have to understand what "AS-IS" means. It means sold without warranty - no exceptions. Most cars are sold at wholesale prices, many way below book prices. Therefore there is minimum profit at best and as such we can not afford to warranty the vehicle as if you had purchased it off a retail lot at full list price. Remember many of these cars are near a decade old or many have in excess of 100,000 miles so they may be new to you but that doesn’t change the fact that they are used cars and repairs can be needed at any time regardless of how short a time period you have owned the car. While we try to service any known defects it is still possible for used vehicles to need service or repairs the first days or weeks of ownership. All cars are used machines and used machines need general repairs on a regular basis many times without prior warning. This is especially true for name brand highline & exotic vehicles that have more elaborate features and systems. Also repairs are more common on say a 10 year old model car as opposed to a 2 or 3 year old model car since they cost significantly less than a newer car. Obviously the older the car the more possible this is of happening. What you have just read is basically common sense, but there are some people who don’t understand this so this is why we have spelled it out in plain English.

    Can I see or inspect the vehicle in person? Prospective bidders are always welcome to come view or arrange on site inspections of the vehicle they are interested in BEFORE the close of the auction; however, we do NOT allow test drives. Once the auction has ended the vehicle is now considered sold and we do not permit any post sales inspections at that point. Of course if you are the winner of the auction you are always welcome to look over the car, test drive it, and make sure you are happy with it before taking delivery.

    Do you end auctions early? We reserve the right to end any auction early should we deem it necessary. However this is quite rare and occurs in less than 2% of all listings. But occasionally we have to end an auction early because we made an error in the vehicles options, description, warranty, or have a title issue. Also any bid retractions within the last half of the remainder of the auction are subject to be ended early at our discretion. We further reserve the right to refuse the sale of any vehicle to any bidder or buyer at our discretion should we deem it necessary.

    What are the technical legal terms? Venue for any legal action such as claims, motions, litigation, settlements, or any legal action associated with this sale from either the buyer or seller is to take place in the State of Virginia in the Henrico County Courthouse. By bidding on this auction the bidder / buyer agrees that any legal action will be heard in the County of Henrico in the State of Virginia. Buyer agrees to be responsible for all legal costs including but not limited to court costs, expenses, attorney fees, cost of process service, and any other cost associated with the normal course of business. Should debt collection be necessary buyer agrees to pay 1 ½ % interest per month or an annual rate of 18% until the debt is collected and paid in full. Should the vehicle need to be repossessed the buyer will be responsible for all costs associated with recovering the vehicle and the buyer will also be responsible for any damages to the vehicle. By entering into this contract the bidder warrants that they are at least 18 years of age and are financially capable of completing this purchase.

    How do I pay for the vehicle? The balance of the purchase price MUST be paid for by cash in person, cashiers check (like you would get from most banks & credit unions), or bank wire transfer. We do not accept personal checks, credit cards, Paypal (except for deposits), drafts, escrow services, or any other form of payment that is not expressly listed above. Some services such as E-Loan or HSBC place demands on their loans that we can not meet. For example sometimes they require the borrower to only purchase a vehicle in the state they reside and that of course would make it impossible for most bidders &ourselves to comply. So again, we work very hard to make the process go smoothly & quickly just let us know upfront if you have any special needs so we can help out. Please note that you are welcome to have your loan officer contact us to arrange one of the above payments if they have questions or concerns. We realize that different lending institutions have different needs and we are here to work with you in those instances. If you arrive to pick up your vehicle and do not have an acceptable form of payment you will be denied delivery of the vehicle. This means you will have to go home without the vehicle or stay over in Richmond until acceptable payment is received. Do not let this happen to you, just follow our simple rules pf payment to ensure a smooth delivery of your new vehicle. These are the only forms of payment that we accept, so if they are not acceptable to you then please do not bid. Final payment must be made within 7 days of the close of the auction. There are no refunds or cancellations once payment has been made as all sales are final on all eBay related transactions.

    Are there any other fees? We do not collect any taxes from any buyers. We do charge a small $95 fee to help cover the cost of the Gross Receipt Inventory Business Tax, Temporary Tags, & Registration that is charged on each car. We charge this fee to help defray the cost of these expenses. International bidders will be subject to an additional $100 fee due to the extra costs associated with completing those sales. Things such as international phone calls, faxes, FedEx packs, and wire transfer fees add up quickly for us when doing business outside of the U.S.A. So in summary all you pay to us is the winning bid price + the fee.

    Do you require a deposit from me? We require that a deposit be made to secure the transaction by the end of the next business day on each vehicle purchased. This means that if you win the auction for any given vehicle at 10PM on a Monday night then the $250 deposit is due by 5PM the following night (Tuesday) . Each vehicle requires a $250 deposit. The deposit is to be made via PayPal only. If you do not have a PayPal account we will be happy work with you depending on each buyers unique situation. Should any buyer fail to make this deposit or to make other arrangements with us by 5PM we reserve the right to offer or sell the vehicle to another bidder or buyer as we deem necessary. Also should the buyer fail to make this deposit or make other arrangements with us by 5PM we reserve the right to cancel the transaction. If a buyer pays the deposit, but does not complete the transaction for any other reason, then the deposit is not refundable and becomes the property of The Car Man Company.

    Can The Car Man Company arrange financing for me or take my trade in? We do not offer any financing through the dealership. Please have all loan and financing arrangements in place before you bid. Also we do not accept trade ins on our auction sales due to the limitations of the auction process.

    Do I need insurance? Once the vehicle is paid for in full insurance is required from the buyer. We do not insure the vehicle after payment is made in full. This is especially important if your vehicle is being transported via car carrier.

    How does shipping work? We do NOT arrange shipping for any of our vehicles. Vehicle shipping is the responsibility of the buyer of the vehicle. You are welcome to use any transporter you choose to come pick up the vehicle from our dealership. If you do not have a transporter we may be able to suggest one for you. Also you can do a web search for vehicle transporters for a greater selection. We do not take vehicles to shipping terminals or shipping ports. All vehicles must be picked up at the dealership during regular business hours Monday - Saturday. Pricing and delivery times are between you and your shipper. Average shipping time is 5 - 15 days depending on many different factors. It is recommended that exotic or high dollar vehicles be shipped enclosed (but that is a personal choice). Also vehicles such as, Limousines, Large Commercial Trucks & Large Vans, etc. may have extra costs associated with them due to size limitations or may not be able to be shipped at all. All buyers should keep the above information in mind when purchasing a vehicle. PLEASE NOTE: Approx. ½ of our cars are transported, and these cars can have no more than ¼ tank of fuel to help the weight down on the transport trucks. Because of the fact we do not know which cars will be transported & which will be picked up in person, all cars will have no more than ¼ tank of fuel at delivery.

    What happens after I win the auction? At the close of the auction we will contact you by email and ask for your name and phone number. Melissa (our office manager) will then call you on the phone and go over all of the details with you. After you have paid your deposit, all we need to do is schedule a time for delivery. Please give us 24 hours notice if possible so we can detail & prepare your vehicle for delivery.

    When can I pick up my vehicle? If you are planning to pick up the vehicle in person, these are the hours we are open for eBay deliveries: Monday - Friday (9am-5pm ET). We are open on Saturdays from 11am-5pm. We are closed on Sundays and all National Holidays. If these hours do not suit your needs, then please arrange to have your vehicle shipped. These are the only hours we will be delivering vehicles. We will have all required paperwork ready for you upon your arrival for a speedy delivery. Please give us 24 hours notice if possible so we can detail & prepare your vehicle for delivery.

    What if I can not come to your dealership to pick up my vehicle & I wish to have it shipped to me? If you are shipping your vehicle, once we have received full payment we will FedEx all necessary paperwork (including vehicle title, temporary tags, and registration) to you for required signatures. In addition to the necessary paperwork, we will send you a return receipt envelope for you to send us back all copies of all the documents. Once we have received full payment for the vehicle, you can arrange shipping for your vehicle or if you have already done so you may let your shipper know that the vehicle has been paid for and is now cleared for pick up. Please try to give us (or have your transporter give us) 24 hours notice before pick up so we can have your vehicle detailed for you before it leaves our dealership. Please note that even though we detail every car before it leaves, cars that have a great distance to travel will usually still get dirty from road debris or unforeseen weather conditions while traveling from state to state.

    Will you leave me positive feedback? We are always happy to leave you positive feedback once the transaction is complete. We hope you too will leave us positive feedback and give us a 5 star rating as well.

    Anything else I should know? By bidding on the above vehicle or by purchasing the above vehicle, bidder / buyer acknowledges all eBay rules and the rules and regulations as stated in this listing by The Car Man Company. By placing your bid you accept all rules as listed above and understand there are no refunds or cancellations, as your bid is a legal and binding agreement, (as stated in the eBay User Guidelines).

    One more thing, will buying a vehicle on eBay be easy & fun? We think so, we have sold vehicles to customers in every state and many cities & countries all over the world. If we can do anything to help make your purchase easier just ask and we will do our best to accommodate you. Purchasing a vehicle on eBay is not only a great way to get a great deal it is also a lot of fun and we do everything we can to make it as simple and enjoyable as possible. Don’t forget to see our other vehicles we have up for auction this week! Thank You! Thank You!
