If that last Frankenbenz had you feeling like you should be screaming "Khaaaaaaan!" from an abandoned planet (no...not even a little bit?) then this should sooth down your inner Kirk. The W124 chassis is a fine piece of craftsmanship and these things will last long into this century with basic maintenance and care.
From the seller:
The interior is excellent for its age. MB Tex vinyl looks almost new, with zero rips, tears, or creases. Carpet is clean. Wood is intact, with just a few cracks in the center console, which is very common. Also has a rare wood lock box under the center armrest.
The exterior would be a 9/10, but about a year ago I lightly backed the car into one of my other cars in the driveway (oh, the humanity!). In the pictures, you can see a small crack on the rear bumper, and the driver's rear corner is dented up. There is slight surface rust there, but the corner is still solid. A body shop quoted me $500 to fix. There are also small cracks in the front lower bumper section, but are not very noticeable. Other than that, the car has no rust anywhere and nice 2 year old Euro headlights and restored trim all around.
The car runs and drives very well, however, it does have a few fluid leaks. The car drips a little bit of oil and a little bit of transmission fluid. I keep an eye on those and have to top them off about every 1,000 miles. There is also a recent power steering leak that I am trying to get fixed before the sale. Despite these drips, the car still runs and drives very nicely.
