Additional Information

The W123 series, with its many variants, was a huge sales success for Mercedes-Benz. Until now, very little has been made available in the English language. Information direct from the factory, and contemporary photography to aid those looking for authenticity, combine to make this a must-have resource.

Covers the period 1976-1986 and all Mercedes-Benz W123 series variants, including saloons/sedans, coupés, estates/wagons, LWB and chassis only vehicles.
