1973 911T wearing a repaint in Chocolate Brown applied in 1975 by the dealer in Germany from its original delivered color of Sepia Brown. The car was delivered new as a US spec car in Germany to a serviceman stationed there and sold to its second owner in 1974-5 to another serviceman stationed there. The second owner, upon completion of his service shipped the car back to the states and has owned it since. 

Remarkably, this car had been sitting in a heated garage since 1989 when the owner parked it from an unknown engine trouble. Untouched and sheltered from the elements, the interior presents as installed with an uncracked dash, panels, door pockets, carpet, gauges, rare single factory Recaro sport seat all in well preserved original condition. 

Acquired in 2019 from the second owner, all systems have been brought back online. The engine, believed to be matching, was fully disassembled down to the crankshaft. New Mahle 2.4L pistons and cylinders were installed, the injection pump rebuilt, cylinder heads rebuilt, fuel system refurbished replacing lines along with injectors and all electrical components addressed. The MFI has been tuned and the car starts on the first turn of the key. 

The electronics in the car have also been gone through establishing grounds, repairing connections where needed to light housings, antenna and the factory installed Becker radio which is now operable using the original dash speaker which is also intact. 

Delivered new with the desirable “S” trim package, the aluminum S calipers have been rebuilt, rear calipers rebuilt, with new pads and rotors installed. Replacement Koni shocks, rear sway bar bushings as well as engine mounts and new tires have also been installed. 

Rarely do we come across vintage cars, especially Porsche 911’s, that have been preserved as well as this one. Most cars are parked, left outside or “in the barn” where they suffer and decay from the elements and time. This is a well preserved, two owner 1973 MFI 911T that has benefited from care, has new mechanicals and is ready for it’s next owner and the open road ahead. 

1984 Mercedes-Benz Estate

 

1984 Mercedes 300 Turbo Diesel Wagon VIN# WDBAB93A4EF004479 was delivered new to its primary owner in Buffalo, NY. and remained with them until 2018. The car was then given to their grandson with 118,000 miles, the second owner of record, who embarked on a sympathetic restoration to bring the car back to its one-time glory. This timeless classic underwent rust repair where needed and given a repaint in its original color of silver, bumper trim pieces replaced, door checks replaced, brakes replaced, sunroof flap replaced, and the factory wheels refurbished. Mechanically the car is sound having its injection system cleaned and calibrated and the automatic transmission inspected and serviced. The Interior is its original MB-Tex navy and is in good condition aside from a small tear in the driver’s seat and some old dash crack repairs are evident. Door panels, switches, handles, headliner are all in very good condition and all electrical operates as it should. Small amounts of cracking and chips are evident in the console wood veneer. 

Also referred to as the “Estate”, the 123 Chassis station wagons are an unmistakable icon of the late 70’s and 80’s. The 5-cylinder turbo diesel engine has stood the test of time and it is not unusual to see these cars with 400-500,000 miles. Worldwide production from 81-85 was only 28,000 units and in 1984 the original MSRP was close to 35k.

Dubbed "the car you couldn't kill" enduring iconic style... legendary durability, styling and vault quality Mercedes-Benz engineering have placed this car into the status of iconic. Then, now and in the future, these wagons exude style and grace and are considered modern classics with appreciating collectability.

This car, a 118,000-mile example is a very low mile example has had essentially one owner and has had all systems refreshed and is ready for the next owner to enjoy for decades to come. It is in very good driver quality condition and is offered at $16,900.
