Such was the success of the W126 Mercedes S Class released in 1979, production continued for a staggering 12 years with over 818, 000 cars produced.
Originally supplied to the Japanese market, this handsome late-production 1991 300 SE with just 74,000 kms is a beautiful example of what Mercedes got so right.
The timeless shape looks gorgeous in its two-tone metallic grey and the car presents extremely well overall with the only non-original item being a 500 SE badge fitted for added street cred. The car’s already pristine underside has just had a fresh coat of underseal, too, for complete peace of mind.
The interior is of the same excellent standard and is equipped with Zebrano Wood, fully electric seats, cruise control and climate control. Everything works exactly how it should and, amazingly, the car still retain its original instruction tags on how to operate the various fixtures and fittings.
As these W126s are famous for, the build quality and engineering are exceptional, and the 3.0 straight-six engine and 4-speed auto gearbox perform flawlessly.
The car was fully serviced by specialists Custodian Classics just 3,000 kms ago when they flushed and replaced the power steering fluid, replaced the front lower ball joints on both sides, fitted new rubber pipes to the cold start and fuel regulator, replaced the metering head lower rubber bellow and replaced the front brake discs and pads with new genuine items.
This is a stunning example of a W126 that has clearly been very well cared for and wants for nothing.
