An Exciting Find for the Mercedes-Benz Purist
This 1984 Mercedes-Benz 230CE has 70k original miles and is a grey-market Euro example imported to the US when new by it's original and only southern California owner.
While US-market w123 coupes were only available with turbodiesel engines in 1984, the 230CE was powered by a gasoline 2.3L M102 fuel-injected inline-four. The 2.3L M102 inline-four is the same engine used in 87-93 190E 2.3 models and features Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection and was rated at 136hp when new with around 24 mpg average.
West Coast Classics are proud to present a superb and all original example of this US imported example of a 1984 Mercedes-Benz 230 CE Coupe in beautiful condition throughout in it's original factory 'Lapis Blue Metallic' (color code 932) color paint with a matching all original and virtually completely flawless and as new 'Blue' cloth interior and with a very well, almost overly well, maintained service history with only one southern California owner since new and 70K original miles in turn-key ready driving condition!
The car was obviously always garaged and the original factory 'Lapis Blue Metallic' color paint is in exceptional condition as is the original 'Blue' cloth interior. The car's factory options include 2.3L 4 cylinder engine with Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection, automatic transmission, electric sliding sunroof, power assisted steering, power assisted four wheel disc brakes, tinted glass, cruise control, electric window lifts, electrically heated rear window, fully independent suspension, power assisted four wheel disc brakes, anti-lock brakes, automatic antenna, automatic air conditioning with climate control, anti-theft, central locking & Becker Grand Prix Cassette/Radio.
In 1984 the car was purchased new in Germany by its original and only southern California owner and the car has always been extraordinarily well maintained and serviced over the years since primarily only at Mercedes dealers or independent specialists with literally thousands and thousands of dollars spent in preventive maintenance over recent years to ensure trouble free driving today. The car was recently serviced at the renown Mercedes independent specialists 'Malibu Motors' of Santa Monica, CA at 70,104 miles where the car received a new battery, had the A/C system evacuated and recharged, the fuel sending unit was replaced, & 4 new tires were installed with alignment.
The car therefore drives exactly like such a well maintained and serviced Mercedes should and must be seen and driven to be truly appreciated. The engine is extremely strong and responsive, the transmission shifts smoothly through the gears and the temperature always remains cool. All the power options are working as they should including the sunroof and all 4 windows. The car comes with its original owners manuals, spare wheel and factory tools.
Without doubt, this is one of the finest cars commuter cars made by Mercedes-Benz, obviously rare and hard to find a model available here in the US, and now becoming more desirable and collectible than ever before - certainly you will look long and hard to find a finer head-turning example of an original southern California owner car with 70K original miles or indeed a more well maintained and always dealer or independent specialist serviced car at this price anywhere else!
