You would have a great car for a long trip. Get a local Mercedes specialist to give it a complete lube job and fluid change ( there are lots of grease nipples on the front end and two on the back axle. Change the fan belt and the radiator hoses ,the fuel filter ( and carry spares) fit a pertrojnix to get rid of the points and travel in complete confidence. I would also plan ahead to ensure there are mercedes dealers close to where ever you passing through.
Read this blog for a little inspiration!

BTW,if you get 5 yearas use out of any aircon compressor you are doing well. The aircon has nothing to do with the quality of the car. mercedes hadn't made their own aircon by that stage.
