Sight unseen w108 purchase

I never did this before, but it sounded good enough to go for it.

I'm now getting the detailed pics, most of which I had never seen before. Yes, it's a project, but I'm not afraid.

I hadn't even seen all these pictures before I decided to provide a deposit.

I've owned 3 d-jet 450sl, so I'm not intimidated by the drivetrain. I don't know what it takes to put one of these bodies and interiors together though. I am glad it doesn't have any air suspension, but I know it will never have the value of a 6.3. But I am hopeful that it can be a nice one.

Any comments from those who know w108 well?

Edit:
Apparently it smokes when you stomp the gas and has a trans leak, but it's been driven less than 100 miles in the last three years I believe. So hopefully those things can be cleared up easily.

Not too awfully bad. I resurrected a 108 with a worse interior than that. You have the option of easily changing the carpet color now, with the seats out, and aside from the arm rest out of the rear seat back, everything looks complete. Rust in the normal places doesn't seem to be a huge issue, and much of the body imperfections seem to be cosmetic in nature.

To your knowledge, when it smokes, it that even while in park? Or while moving and under hard acceleration?
