1980 Mercedes-Benz 200-Series Additional Info:

I am offering up a well cared for early version of the Mercedes Benz S class or W126 model of 1980. It replaced the W116 S class in 1979. Most of the sedans imported and sold in the US from 1979 til 1991 were alloy V8 engines. This is a gray market European version with a Kjet fuel injected alloystraight six which were offered in Europe from 1979 til 1985. Despite the popularity of the 2.8L model in Europe, it was rarely imported here and is more rare to have one in this condition after nearly forty years.....Exterior appears to be original paint and chrome trim with no rust anywhere and showing only slight signs of wear. There are a few small scrapes and one crease on driver side rear quarter panel. Paint not yet detailed since winter storage. Huge power sunroof operates without any issues. Chrome is not hazy or corroded and should shine as new with a detail. Have european headlights for it as well as the US version shown here. Alloy wheels have been recently professionally repainted with newer tires and alignment. Glass is excellent with slight delamination to the corners of rear window.Interior is out of a time capsule.....no cracks on dash pad, console or door cards. European velour (yes, velour) which was very popular due to it incredible durability....which is apparent here. The front driver's seat shows as new without a rip or tear or seams damage. Door card velour as well as rear seats with headrestare perfect as well. Mercedes Benz's interior trim has always used natural wood laminate which as time goes on, lifts and cracks....BUT that is not the case here. It also retains it's original operational am/fm/lw/sw Becker Europa stereo with front speakers. Carpets are rip free and without any stains, as is the carpet lined trunk covering a brand new (1980) spare alloy wheel and tire.....
Engine compartment is clean and tidy including the hood liner. The 2.8L straight six is in perfect running condition with a recent engine tuneup, and new fuel pump and fuel filter replaced. Automatic transmission fluid is clean and operates like new, shifting smoothly. I will be added more pictures shortly.This classic can be driven anywhere and would make a great daily driver.Feel free to contact me at 412-299-8581 with any questions and before making an offer.Also, noted that this vehicle is being sold "as is" without any warrantiesimplied or written.Vehicle is also being sold locally and I reserve the right to end the auction at any time.Thank you and good luck bidding.
