    Looks nice on the surface, 300=> 420 conversion but not connected up the ancillaries? Add to that the rotting parcel shelf, I would say the start price is the ceiling price. Does look good in the pics from a distance though

    The car does look nice but will clearly need work. However the seller does say that he bought it as an on-going restoration project and that it will come with spares ranging from whole doors to relays which is quite reasonable IMHO.

    For someone with the money and time I'm sure it could come up a real beauty.

    Awful wheels + crap body kit + gaudy interior + cheap chavvy registration plate = a very unappealing W126

    Not to my taste either, but Duchatelets do have their devotees. Each to his own.
