Would 1985 300'TD' from Bangalore do? Apparently the owner(some old man) is looking for buyer who promises keep the car. I didn't ask for more details as I was not interested, I can ask and give you the contact if you want.

Prabhuav how about following a system other wise there will be kayos.
I think the camaraderie we share on this site ensures that all of us follow certain unwritten rules i.e. give preference to the individual who has put the query, u have been hear long enough to know that. No hard feeling bro but this ensure u and I are not bidding for the same car which will inflate the price for no reason cheers

No worries mate. You do get the first shot at it. Hope you dont mind me doing some background verification on the car. I will not make an offer till you decide either way.

Akshay, this one is an American spec W123 300TD. Thats a 5 cyl turbo diesel engine and a very powerful one too. I have an identical car in the identical colour. Even my car has the Euro spec lights as in this one, which are wrong for this model. This model comes with two round sealed beams, in some occasions the fogs are yellow.
This car should have the following specs, Leather trim, Automatic transmission, and cruise control.
Bits and pieces from an American spec car do not fit in the European version and vice versa. There are also many extras in this car which do not come in the non American version. Common problem is the turbo usually some fault with it (mostly due to adulterated diesel) and thats really expensive to do. Let me know what parts are required.
I would like to get in line in case the car is for sale once it is clear whats missing and whats wrong.
