I am keen to restore the W120

Hi All,
I am not a completely new member, but have stayed away for a long time.

I am still a very happy owner of a 1989 SE500 & have just purchased a W221 S500 2001 model.
I am keen to restore the W120, so I will be asking lots of question over the next couple of years, I wish to thank you for you help in the past & great to find the website still here.

one urgent issue I have is a "Flat Battery"

To me the car is 1 week old and it has been fine until to today after leaving the car standing for 48 hours I went to use it and I find that the battery is flat. So I check with the last owner and he is a bit mystified as he has left it standing for a lot longer recently.

I put the battery on charge checked the level of battery fluid topped up on a couple of dry cells and it has been on charge now for 9 hours but still unable to start and the interior lights are poor.
Checking the service history it looks like it’s the original MB battery so it’s getting on for 7 years old?
Is there anyway to check, to see if it is a dying battery?
