Ford V8 Powahhh! 1978 Mercedes-Benz 300CD C123

The W123 E-Class Mercedes-Benz is known for a number of attributes, but speed is not in that group. However, if you ditch the smoky old diesel mill for a domestic V8, you might find some performance. Today’s W123 (actually a C123) has been given an injection of performance enhancing drugs via a small block Ford 302 and I love it. Find this 1978 Mercedes-Benz 300CD C123 offered for $14,750 in Beverly Hills, CA via craigslist.
