The main things I need from the W126s are brakes, rear axles, sunroofs and seats. Everything else will be sold or scrapped so keep and eye on Gumtree and Ebay for my listings after Christmas

Nah W126 new so less rust and most have stuffed engines at the bottom end. Meaning $1000 or less and there is always a few at that price.
