I have attempted to describe this car to the best of my ability. It is a 40 year old vehicle and is sold AS IS.
I live in DC but the vehicle is currently being stored in Germantown MD
Overall this car can serve as a great donor to a W123 Coupe Restoration - Complete with lots of rare coupe only parts
Can be mechanically restored for a low cost driver with minimal effort
I have enjoyed this car and it will not be my last W123, but I am facing a need to downsize my project list.
