The motor is outstanding and balanced, starts in cold from first turn, runs quiet and no knocking of any kind, no leaks of any kind, no smoke…
Mechanically the vehicle is perfect, its very reliable. Everything works, all windows, moon roof, door locks, transmission and motor are very smooth.
This car is close to perfect, it needs nothing, there are tons of maintenance and upgrades performed, paint is shiny, trim is shiny, chrome is shiny, it has under tire rubberized coating, no rust...
Couple small imperfections are present, remember this vehicle is 37 Years old, it isn'tcosmeticallyperfect but it very close. Along the time of ownership, my family has easily invested close to $25K to keep this beautythe way you see it.

Cosmetics
Cosmetically, the car it is miraculouscondition. Paint is very shiny, has couple tiny scratches visible to eye at very close distance, the chrome is very shiny, not perfect but for this year is above average. Car has couple tiny imperfections but ifI mustrate the cosmetic condition of the exterior from a 1 - 10 scale, this Benzwould be a 9.5.Car was never involved in an accident since it was manufactured, every body part is perfectly aligned and secured. No rust visible, even underneath car is rust free
Interior
Interior of this Benz its outstanding with so many upgrades and fully restored wooden trim in Italy. Seats and cloth is in great shape. The driver seat has one tiny burn spot (it will be fixed before pick up). The dashboard has the common on all W123 spot where it has hair line 2 cracks ( you can check out the pictures, Ihave never seen one without the cracks, they sell dashboardcovers but the original look is better in my opinion) all the buttons and dashboard accessories work and look like new. The ceiling fabric is flawless, the door trim is perfect, rear seats are without a flaw, carpets are washed and covered with plastic shield. Trunk interior its like new, original emergency tire from 1983 never used...+ OEM tool set and OEM jack. Also has an upgraded simple classic look radio with Bluetooth capabilities. Original radiocan be included if you would like the cassetteplayer. All speakers have been replaced as well.
The Bad:
The antenna in trunk doesn't go up and down from 3 months ago. May need a new motor, Ihave being using it by manually pulling it up and taking it down (unexpressivereplacement are available)
