That leather is in amazing condition despite the car having covered 229,000 miles and two decades of weathering.....

How badly do these thing rust?

If you get one that's in good order, you can keep the usual wheel arch rust at bay by given them a good clean out with a wire brush, wash/dry & then a coating with a rust inhibitor. I did this with mine and although the arches had the usual bubbling rust, it hasn't spread or broken through since i've had it. I also ensure that it is cleaned regularly especially through winter time to get rid of any salt.

Certainly worth a look for anyone interested in a W124 in the NE of Scotland.
Self leveling rear suspension might be an area to check carefully.
Why so coy about the registration?

was that Druk's 300TE before it got pushed into the side of his house?? The one he bought with 'suspect' mileage (or is that just my memory playing tricks again)

You mean Pontoneer. His car had a replacement engine though and only had 420k miles on the clock, iirc.
