I'm new here.

I am fixing up a w123 1978 petrol benz down here in oz.

I bought it when I got bail and can't believe it passed a Road worthy.
Still goes but needs a lot of digging around for parts.

Air pump.
Air intake hose, (did mention i had 1, thought I did)
Germany stopped producing. Damn.
A few hoses.
Sprockets, steering etc.

its got 187, 000 kms on the dial.
Bought it as an unfinished project and got 6000 kms
out of it b4 the cooling system blew. I have it registered.

The old benz sure took a knock around, I drove it all summer, and used it for paint jobs. I have got most of the parts I needed. This is a keeper, no rust, good interior and very clean. Will have more photos after the sound and electrics gets sorted.


It will be lowered
