hi from south-africa

Hi guys. want to introduce myself. my name is johann and im in pretoria south-africa. i bought a w123 230e some time ago for R3200.00. thats about $450.00,with a busted engine and it was real dirty. guy told me the oilpump acted up. but acct only the timing chain broke.cleaned it up quite nicely and will now attend to the engine and g/box. want to recon both to make sure i have a car thats without hasstles.

gearbox oil leaks

absolutely no rust!

Nice car. I had several 70's and 80's models. Excellent seats, engine and body. Replace brake fluid and overhaul the brake calipers and master / clutch slave and master cylinders. Volvos, and BMW's of the same period shared electronic, brake and clutch components.
