I had an '84 SD w/617 motor. Great motor, too much crap to go wrong with the car. Mine had been neglected, but still, power everything means, eventually, headaches. I love my Euro W123 sedan. Simplest car I've ever owned. Crank windows, manual climate control, manual gearbox, no sunroof... it'll run forever, and everything will continue to work properly. Even if it breaks, diagnosis and repair are a snap! Can't say that about the 126's.
Youâ€™re considering a second generation 126 which has some improved features and additional options. The OM 603 is a fine engine but as noted the head can warp so an inspection is in order. At almost two tons and with a 121.2 inch wheelbase this is a BIG car. But itâ€™s remarkably driveable and easy to use in town. Its true home is on the open road â€“ the faster you go the more comfortable the car becomes, it tracks straighter and the suspension smoothes out. Best speeds for the 126 is over 80 mph. The cabin is spacious and the rear seats have excessive legroom, everything about the car is large and massive. Make sure you have a careful inspection before buying, although not cheap to maintain, if an abused or neglected example is purchased, it can be a nightmare of a money pit.

Anyone have any suggestions?
They're all trickling in box by box... straight from MB... some from Germany since the US depots don't have stock on certain items... all are C123 pieces. :)
Thinking of R&R all the rubber trim above the beltline on a C123??
Hold your breath, in case you’re not aware yet… these are...
