Some older guy, think his name was Charlie, was just hanging out there and appeared to be a huge wealth of information on 240s and 300s.

The w123 240 that I have though is pretty beat up, and has $500+ back fees on the registration due to one of the previous owners forgetting to non-op it. It runs strong, but that is about all it has going for it at this point, its going to need new interior, new driver door, rear passenger window, grille, bumpers, and the hood re-mounted to get it into usable condition, along with a new ignition and lock assembly

RE: Craiglist alert thread
Well, if you can afford both then the w126 is at a good price. I just think they're uglyish. I'd would rather have a 123, 124, anything but a 126. And that 126 has the om617 motor. The only reason to have a 126 over a 123 is to get an extra cylinder.
Except of course if it's a really good deal. Just that they are uglyish.

RE: Craiglist alert thread
As the owner of a 300SD that has a transmission problem, I'd be hesitant to buy one that the person states has a transmission issue. I have yet to find an affordable route to getting my transmission fixed/replaced. Outside that, I actually like the W126 cars but I grew up in them and just gained an attraction to them over the years.

RE: Craiglist alert thread
As for long-wheelbase cars, I would much rather have a turbo w116, but I dont think that is going to happen any time soon. I prefer the look of the w123 over that of the w126 also, but my extra w123 is just sitting and I dont really have time to be fixing it up into great condition since I go to school full time and work also, so if I could get something in better condition to replace it that is affordable and won't require a lot of time/money to get going, then it would be a plus. Also I called the guy and there was no answer so we'll see what happens

RE: Craiglist alert thread
The blue one looks identical to the car I recently took the original Cibie headlamps from.

I have a complete set of seats for these cars, including the center front console part. White, they sit beautifully (cushions have no sag, no broken springs, horsehair has no shredding), only three small tears total. No headrests. The rear seat's frame has a moderate amount of rust and the bench smells like old dog urine, so needs to be steam-cleaned or doused with Lysol. Front seats are in great shape. PM me if interested. I also have the left taillight lens, in excellent condition. Plus an instrument cluster, untested.
Gone but not forgotten: two W123 sedans and two W124 wagons.
W124 1987 300TD wagon, for sale, $1000 (some assembly required).

There is an old 60s MBZ for sale on the side of the road near where I live. I think it is the body style of that blue car above but I honestly did not stop and look at the car. Price on the windshield I recall being something like $2300. Girl at my daughters school drives an old diesel similar to that brown one above.

A w126-om617 with a extra cylinder?? Are you comparing it to the w123 240D wich is a 4 cylinder om616? Because a w123 300D has a om617 just like the w126.
w115-300D, w123-300D, w116-300SD, w126-300SD, all have a 5cylinder om617.
The w115-240D and the w123-240D have the 4cylinder om616.

What year w126 comes with the om60x motor??? wich would be a 6cylinder i belive?

I agree, the w123 is much much sexier than a w126..on any level.

w126 1986-1987 ie 300SDL is the OM603.
And the w126 1990-1992 350SD/SDL is the 3.5 version of the OM603
and late 92-96 w140 300sd where also offered with the om603 as well

The w124 300d came with the om603 87 only and after that they where ether OM602? 2.5 5 cylinders?

RE: Craiglist alert thread
Independent Mercedes shop here in town has a 6.9 sitting in the back. I assume it belongs to one of the mechanics. It is lowered, different wheels and generally just a very agressive stance to it. I seem to recall for awhile after the 6.9 was no more than AMG took them and transplanting them into some of the newer cars. I'd love to have one for a toy but could not see myself ever paying the asking prices for them.

It was the fastest production sedan in the world when it was built it could top 140 mph not bad in 1977 with big huge nasty catalytic converters!

All 6.9's had hydraulic suspension so they sit on the ground when not running they are not lowered they just do that naturally!
