Thumbs up

I would say no. I fix these as I enjoy driving them, not for financial gains.
I'm not a doctor, but I'll have a look.

W123's are known for their long life and "engineered like no other car" quality.
In some countries W123 wagons are sought after - especially diesel engined - 300TD

Check this video.

Neat to have, but not worth any more. Is this the one in Florida at Biondo Palm Beach (or something like that)? If it is, you'll find that it's really a 1984 when you run the data card.
