1978 Mercedes-Benz 230C
Interest in the W123 continues to grow, with the smaller-engined coupés in particular combining ruggedness with attractive, but understated looks. SWVA’s car has been owned by the car’s
third owner (and current vendor) since 1984 and comes with extensive history, including, the auctioneer says, original road tax reminders. In white (with steel wheels and hubcaps) with contrasting blue cloth trim, it looks the part. Bidding on it should be lively.
