Looks like a W123 to me. One of the most successful models ever. It was the equivalent of an E class before the name came into existence with its sucessor,the w124.

Mercedes-Benz W123 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Thats surely a W123. Either a 200 or a 300d I guess. But it surely is badly maintained. Look at the one I spotted yesterday. Immaculately maintained.

The one in mclaren's picture doesnt have the US spec sealed headlights which the one in your picture has. IMO the non US spec ones look better.

I think maybe it's a 116, not sure still working on it.

Cyrus - You have any other pics? Front or Rear three-quarters would really help.

EDIT: Nope, Adhish/Rahul are right, it seems it is indeed a 123.

What model is this Cyrus? 240 or bigger?

Rahul: That 123 seems to be missing the chrome backed wiper arms! Just nit-picking obviously!!

For Sure, it is the W123 series.
And the bumpers are the buffered specs like in USA/Canada.
confusion is how come these bumpers on a RHD. Could be australian version . 240D's were very common then.
