Love it. I've always had an affinity for wagons and would list the w123 touring as one of my favorites.

Thanks guys. I'm going to have some questions and be looking for some seat related parts. I am missing the rear seat lower cushion or cushions if they are separate. I'll have time to take better pictures today.

Today is first day I could look this car over and take pictures. First a quedtion. Ben awhile since I had a 300 diesel. I remember that the injector return ports are joined in series and then go back in one line. First picture shows one port open, (1 arrow),and the final return line off the first port, (2"arrows).

Other pictures are of today's revelations.
1. 3rd seat appears to have been rarely used if at all. Rear seat backs are in excellent shape save for one small tear. 2. Original full tool kit with a MB star fuse container. Never ever saw one of these before.
3. Rear short seat bottom needs restored
4. Rear long seat bottom missing.
5. Plastic inside door window surrounds are toast. Heat wrinkled and shrunk... spare tire cover missing, or was there ever one?

I have a spare tire cover in palomino, but someone put a speaker in it. I also have the door handle parts you are looking for.
