Mercedes-Benz 300 SE (W 126): affordable S-Class with H
180 hp Benz with a mileage of 260,000 km
Rather clear equipment, but leather seats
The first owner didn’t make too many crosses when it came to equipment. Leather seats with seat heating, rear headrests, tinted glass. Plus aluminum wheels, root wood and a detachable trailer hitch. The built-in air conditioning is currently not working, an interested party should take this into account. The right cheek of the driver’s seat is cracked, and the seat surface also indicates the mileage of the car. The saddler or conditioner will soon be waiting.
The type-specific rust-prone jacking points and the rear window frame should be without findings, which can be clarified quickly during the sales pitch. The reference to a grazing damage at the back right, which can hardly be seen on the photos, speaks for the sincerity of the seller. A closer look is worthwhile here, as is the case with the cracked chrome of the bumpers according to the advertisement.
Necessary questions for the seller
For a collector, this S-Class might have a little too much mileage, but it could be an everyday classic for an enthusiast who has a garage and still has some budget for maintenance and minor upcoming repairs. Or maybe you are looking for a third classic car?
Finally, the question remains whether the seller is flexible on the price? In the ad he speaks of a fixed price, but he advertises the vehicle on a popular trading platform for a hundred euros less. So there should be at least a little wiggle room.
