New guy with questions

Hello, I looking at the older mercedes w123,126 and 124 chassis, I am wanting a diesel
from one of thoes chassis could someone give me some direction?
What is the best one for me ?
I am looking for,
most reliable
best mpg's
and the safest one out of all of them !
I am going to be a new driver and I have a ford IDI diesel truck and it isnt that great on fuel as you can imagine, 13-15 mpg.
I want a model that is safe (airbags),gets good fuel economy and is reliable, I am looking for a good daily drive for a young guy. I don't need a speed demon, I am "a simple kind of man" who is looking for a good car.
I would like it to be a model that I could do basic maitanance on my self, gp's, fuel injectors, battery, alt. ect.
I am looking at these cars because, they pretty cheap I have heard they are built like a tank they are reliable and they get good mpg's and best of all they are a Mercedes.
Thank you very much, if you want or need more info just ask.
EDIT: I am about 6'3 so one with decent leg room would be a must.
