That roof looks pretty rough. Looks like it would need a good clean-up too. Needs new carpeting and a going over in the engine compartment.

I'll give you 9,500

Can I run premium unleaded in the tank as well

Someone should go over those with black permanent marker.

Edit: I love the car. I saw a w123 limo on benzworld that was a complete disgrace. This on the other hand is excellent and looks really really nice.

Rip out the veg oil kit and have two diesel tanks for a 1,200 refuel distance

I believe they were factory on the Gen II w126's from 1987-1991. I don't know for certain however...

The trays are part of the knee bolsters and are there on DOT spec cars with airbag (s).

I can beat that...W123 300D limo

The bigger question is why someone would convert a 420 to a 300

Yes, especially an OM617. I'd like to see such a thing with a 603 or 606 turbo. Smoother, quieter, more powerful, but would it fit in the engine bay?

Of course it would (Although the 2nd battery would probably be moved to the trunk)




Also all that money for the conversion and it still has US wiper blades on the head lights

Needs a lot of work, and an M117 V8 so it can move along.

That car would be perfect for an 80's or 90's Yakuza movie.
