Mercedes-Benz Series 123 (W123) is one of the many Mercedes-Benz Series that figured in the brand's illustrious history. It was comprised of seven models.
The first was the Mercedes-Benz 230, a model that actually represented a line of sedans that replaced "Stroke Eight" vehicles in the 114 and 115 series. One was a "base" offered between 1976 and 1980, and the other was a chassis-only model (designed for building special-purpose car bodies -- ambulances, station wagons, hearses, and similar others) also available during those years.
The second was the Mercedes-Benz 240 D, another multi-model line of sedans that replaced the "Stroke Eight" cars in Mercedes-Benz Series 114 and 115. Those models were standard- and long-wheelbase variants, and they ran from 1976 to 1985 and 1977 to 1985, respectively. Mercedes-Benz Series 124 succeeded them in 1984.
The third, Mercedes-Benz 280 CE, a line of coupes, released in 1977, succeeding the "Stroke Eight" coupes of Mercedes-Benz Series 114. It was offered until 1985. The fourth was the Mercedes-Benz 280 E, a sedan line that, likewise, replaced the Mercedes-Benz Series 114 and Series 115 "Stroke Eight" vehicles and was available between 1975 and 1985 (with a long-wheelbase variant coming available in 1977.
The fifth model was a line of coupes, Mercedes-Benz 300 CD -- one comprised of two models, a "base" 300 CD and the Mercedes-Benz 300 CD Turbodiesel. These were offered from 1977 to 1981 and from 1981 to 1985, respectively. The sixth was the Mercedes-Benz 300 D sedan line, another replacement for the "Stroke Eight" 114 and 115 series models. It was comprised of three cars: a "base" 300 D, a long-wheelbase variant, and a turbodiesel-equipped model. This car was succeeded by Mercedes-Benz Series 124 in 1984.
The final model, the Mercedes-Benz 300 TD, was a station wagon that was offered from 1978 to 1985. It was two models, actually -- the "base" 300 TD itself, and the Mercedes-Benz 300 TD Turbodiesel. Both cars went out of production early on in 1986.
