As far as WVO goes, I would look at the w123. 617 motors are bulletproof and the IP seems to be more robust.
No the W124 was the bread and butter model, 300D was the cheapest of said series.
MB's flagship of the period was the 560SEL/SEC followed closely by the 560SL.
Get the 87 unless you really like W123's, they are a bit tight inside for my taste. Drive nicely though.
