When the 300 TD was introduced in April 1978, it was the most expensive station wagon on the market; Mercedes sold them at a little more than 26,000 deutsche marks a pop (roughly $15,000). These were the cars that started Americans on the road to their current luxury SUV obsession—the first modern vehicles that were both practical and relatively luxurious. Up until then, it was one or the other. This example is likely among the lowest mileage original TD wagons in existence with just 31,000 original miles from new. Completely original Manganese Brown Metallic paintwork with Palomino MB-Tex, this TD was extensively documented, having just one owner from new until 2015.
