Absolutely original Allana. These were 5 cylinder Turbo diesel powered American W123s. They came with an Auto transmission, obviously were LHD and were loaded with a lot of goodies as standard, like power everything, Sunroof, leather all around and cruise control etc etc. The front lights were two separate sealed beams and the fogs tended to be Yellow in most cases, but not always.

The extended bumper was due to American Safety specs which meant all cars had to have an extended bumper by a few inches.

@mbz180, somewhere I read in this thread that you know a good workshop in Bangalore to service used Mercs. I am planning to buy a used W124 E220 and I need to know a reliable place where I can get her serviced regularly. Can you please share the details of the workshop?

Well from what the garage guy said, the original engine (no idea if petrol or diesel) was taken out and replaced with a matador one.

I wish I could afford one of these! :(

Hi Shyam,
Wow a great find ! Where in hyderabad was this Tri Star hidden? Perhaps if you are not buying this one then feel free to share the details I would love to have this type of Mercedes. Shyam believe me its was a really challenging to post a reply to you as My IE had compatibility issues with the teap-bhp site and I had to call Nikhil who was truly helpful plus I am not eligible to PM you also. Anyways I would be grateful if you can share the details if you can!

Regards

Does anybody know a good reliable workshop in Bangalore to service used Mercs, specifically W124?

This picture was taken in 1984 of the Sircar's Merc at Kolkatta. This picture was sent by someone who used to work in Calcutta in those days.
