New MB Enthusiast in Atlanta

Hello everyone, I love your forum. I am a new MB fan who lives in Atlanta. I have also admired the brand and especially the w126 models. Impressive although expensive maintenance or so im told. I have the opportunity to purchase a rough 1984-85 eurospec 380se, I have only seen it run as i haven't driven the vehicle yet. Any advice on what to look out for (expect) would be greatly appreciated. Great form very informative.

Welcome..! The eurospec 380SE's are a Fun W126 to own. The 380 loves to rev and the short wheel base makes the car that much more nimble. A set of H&R springs and some proper bilsteins will make it Even more entertaining to drive!

Timing chain/rails are a Major concern as that can grenade the engine.. Beyond that a proper inspection is the best way to discern what is most pressing.
