Generally speaking, all of the models you listed are well-regarded and probably equally reliable.

However, there are two models that stand out as being easiest to work on: 300CE and 300SEL.

They both have the same 3.0 liter M103 engine and are proven chassis with no major issues.

I think it comes down to whether you'd rather drive a medium sized two door hardtop coupe, or a very large four door sedan.

The 300SEL would be particularly easy to work on as the engine bay is so huge. With the 6-cylinder in there, you could practically jump in there to work on the engine.
