I bought a 1984 E420 8 months ago; love the way the car drives. Be careful of air conditioning problems....on this body style (all the E series) the evaporater and expansion valves are known to go bad. The expansion valve can cost $300, but the evaporater is an expensive $2000 fix. I just had my expansion valve go, and may also need an evaporater - as you can imagine, that was really bad news. If I were you, I'd have someone check the AC system very carefully before any purchase.
