MB put the 104 Motor in the 124 chassis in about 1990. The body is the same. The trans is about the same. It all should work.

It would be cheaper to just buy the newer car though.

If I remember correctly, the M104 is a 3.2 inline six, basically same block as M103 (if I am correctly recalling. Should fit in a W124 w/o too much shoehorning. Tranny should be OK as well. I haven't looked at this stuff in a while, so don't take this opinion to the bank.
