We're serious fans of the non-US 123 gasoline six cylinders, whether they be a coupe, sedan or wagon.This is an unmolested 123 Coupe with the high output Euro 2.8 liter twin-cam engine. The Euro specification 2.8 liter twin-cam six cylinder 280CE was rated at 180 HP, a full 40 HP more than the US specification 280CE. Even with moderate US mandated EPA modifications, these Euro models are far livelier than their US counterparts.

European small bumpers - Euro headlamps - Euro headlight washers (inop) - Euro emergency triangle under the deck lid.
Excellent largely original paint with exceptional depth and gloss - The best exterior bright work I've ever seen on a 123.
Correct bumper alignment - Undamaged front valance - Panel gaps/shutlines as per the factory - Correct ride height.
Hood/front fender/door/deck lid bolts never disturbed.

Excellent interior - Zero dash cracks - Good glove box fit - Negligible pedal wear - Great headliner/package panel.
Excellent wood - Nice leather - Excellent carpets.

Crisp and clean engine bay - Crisp clean trunk area and spare tire well.

Just serviced and inspected:
Fuel lines as needed - Exhaust hangers as needed - New wiper blades/radiator cap.
New hood pad - Steering damper - Shift linkage bushings.
New steering damper - Brake fluid flush - Power steering flush - AC service - New AC compressor.
'C' service - New OE rear exhaust - new radio from Becker Classic - Recent (2018) Michelins.
Restored alloys and more.

All 4 shocks, front rotors/pads, catalytic converter, lower ball joints done @ 54k miles.

Runs and behaves on the road beautifully.
