230CE Coupe 2.3 Litre 1985B

MYJ04Pajett Red metallic, Quartz cloth interior, auto gearbox, electric sunroof, front and rear headrests, front and rear armrests, front and rear electric windows, luggage nets on front seat backrests, original alloy wheels, central locking, original Blaupunkt radio/cassette player, all original tools and manuals, excellent service history, 106,000 miles.


This is a gorgeous example of the W123 coupe which has been treasured by each of its owners, who must all have known exactly what care and attention is required to keep a car in top condition. At 31 years of age, and with an average of under 3,500 miles covered per annum, it is equal in condition to many cars a tenth of its age.

MYJ21It was supplied new by Westwood Mercedes-Benz of Blackburn in January 1985, and stayed in the West Lancashire area with four owners for 27 years. The last of these, a gentleman from near Bolton, kept the car for 13 years. In 2012 it went to its latest owner, an aeronautical engineer who lives near Leicester. After four years of enjoyable motoring he has now regretfully passed it on, as a change in his personal circumstances means that he now needs an estate car.

In the service book there are 11 stamps from garages in the West Lancashire and Leicestershire areas. We understand that the third owner, an RAF engineer, maintained the car himself and carried out the services between 72,000 and 90,000 miles which are not stamped. We have almost all of the old MOT certificates dating back to the very first one, together with many old tax discs and recent service invoices.

The car looks very elegant in the rich burgundy metallic paint colour, which is complemented by the unmarked pale beige cloth interior. It is in wonderful condition throughout and drives superbly.

MYJ13This is a rare chance to acquire a superbly maintained W123 coupe now that most of the remaining ones are tired and worn. Regardless of whether the new owner keeps it as a weekend and holiday treat, or uses it sparingly as an everyday car, it will deliver many years of pleasurable returns, far in excess of its modest purchase price.

We will carry out a comprehensive mechanical check of the car before sale. Any faults found will be remedied, and any required maintenance will be carried out. A schedule of this work will be supplied with the car, along with our own warranty, details of which can be supplied on request.
