Very nice, now if it was just a diesel

Couple of comments...

Shouldn't there be a hoodpad?
Was the mileage from the km speedo transfered to the mph speedo?
The tail lights are us spec....
The euro front lights are early spec, I would expect it to have square euros....

Thanks for the comments. I can't say if it ever had a hood pad, no signs of one, but being the lower model 230E, not sure it ever would have had one. Original hood for sure and no signs of it ever being taken off, all bolts still panted, etc.

Wasn't aware the tail lights are US spec or the headlights being a different spec. I know I have seen the 230E's with both, but being a grey market car, I have no idea what was changed when it was converted for US regulations. I do know that the square headlights came out in 1977 when the w123 was first introduced, my 280CE coupe had them installed (euro spec) when new buy the original owner in 1978 (he confirmed this). I have heard them being called "low spec" for the lower optioned cars.

Looks very nice. Is there anyway to document the odometer at the time it was imported? As I assume it was swapped out with possibly a new cluster...
