Hey that's neat. Thanks Rehaan. Would be a handy tool in my search. I usually come and check on the classified section every now and then.

I would request the moderators to move this thread under 'Vintage Cars & Classics in India'

Thanks.

I do love the W126 and I enjoy every second in it, Its just that 1st love can never be forgotten. The new owner keeps sending me pictures of the car regularly and we talk about meeting soon for a short road trip.

Lets see how that turns out, its like ex-girlfriend meeting the current one
Thanks for appreciating her Tazmaan. Yes there was not much that was wrong with her when I bought her but since then I have decided to take her through a full restoration, frame up.

I'm thinking of starting a new thread on my project. Watch out for that space

Slightly off topic, but in case someone on this forum is planning to dispose of his/her 240d/300d (manual), do send me a PM with the details.

Thanks !

Came across three W123 240Ds advertised on olx, which seems quite well maintained.

https://www.olx.in/item/mercedes-ben...-ID1b1Xkb.html
https://www.olx.in/item/mercedes-ben...-ID1bGTwP.html

Can the gurus please advise what would be the right price to pay for the first two cars advertised? The respective sellers expect no less than 10L & 6.5L respectively

Do note that the Chennai based car has unpaid taxes for the previous two years - hence additional expenses by way of taxes plus penalties are expected. Plus there is the additional hassle of producing the car in Kerala (all the way from Pune) for renewing the Certificate of Fitness.

https://www.olx.in/item/1984-mercede...-ID1aRhVf.html

As for the the last one in the list, the colour is not to my liking. Plus I am not sure whether a W123 ever came with a five speed manual gear box (I really doubt it). But it does appear that the owner has some sort of "sane" price in mind.

An early reply would be greatly appreciated. Thanks !

Five speed was an option on various models.
