I will tell you guys the price I was told; later. It was for sale at a Mercedes Dealership.
Please dont buy it then; that particular 140 has been on sale for a long long time. A W140 is high-maintainence enough....but one that has been standing still for a long time is worse still.

Hi
You can get a w123 from 1.25 lakhs to 3Lakhs
It all depends on the condition.

If it is a well maintained vehicle, single owner in original paint with all the original parts and interiors intact you can give around 3 Lakhs.

Else you should reduce the price for each and every part it misses.

Look out for cracked dash board can set you back upwards of 25k depending on where and if you get it

I bought a 240D earlier this year for 2.5L. Had done 111k miles - I have since then put about 700 miles on it. Is in very good running condition. AC working, minor tears inside but hardly visible.

I bought a new battery (Exide) as the old one had died out and got the AC serviced - one of the hoses had a small leak. Nothing else required.

From the earlier posts in this thread it seems like this car appreciates in value over time. Is that true? Any estimates on how much?

The tyres on my W123 are in decent condition but I am thinking of going in for new ones. Current ones are Bridgestone 185/70/14.

Have read in other threads that the standard fitment is 175.

What is the best one to go for? 175 or 185 or 195.

best is 195, it looks great on the car and as a matter of fact the factory gave it only as an option during the days these cars were sold.
hey i have a question, about your ac,
does your car still have the original york/harrison compressor?(if your are not sure they have a different shape from the normal ones.)
and are you still using R12 gas in your ac?
