Here are some photos I just took. There is a crack on the dash toward the right side of the picture, and 2 small cracks near the vent.

The roof liner looks the same on the other side, too.
I have a new battery for the car but don't have it in yet.

Yes,confirmed!!Looking at the engine bay pics' you have the W114 M/Benz 280,with the M110 engine. The engine is known to be strong/solid performer,but miserable MPG(barely 15-17).The main issue is the Carburetor problems' these MB have after been sitting for a long period of time,rebuild cost > $500-700 !! ...GLWS.
