Vehicle description

Model history:

Unlike the massively representative predecessor of the W 116 model series, the new Mercedes-Benz S-Class (W 126) presented in September 1979 was more coupé-like and graceful. Slightly longer than the previous model and equipped with a slightly longer wheelbase, the timelessly drawn new did not look antiquated even years later. There was the S-Class of the W 126 series with a normal wheelbase and extended wheelbase (SEL). The smallest engine was the 2.8-liter in-line six-cylinder, at the upper end was the 560 with 5.6-liter V8 engine. A total of almost 900,000 units of the 126 series were produced.

General information about the vehicle:

Now a Mercedes-Benz Saloon from 1982 can be purchased in this auction: This is the model 380 SEL from the W 126 series, which was delivered to America in 1982 with the VIN WDB12603312028407 and transferred to Holland in 2019. In Holland, the value of the vehicle was finally determined. Overall, the Mercedes-Benz has only 2 owners and the matching numbers are completely given. The 380 SEL does not yet have H approval, and a valid inspection has not yet been carried out.

Exterior colour/varnish/body:

In terms of paintwork, this Mercedes-Benz is kept in a color called "silver blue metallic" (color code 930) - whether the body of the sedan has already undergone one or more repaints is not known to the current owner of the car. However, with regard to the exterior, the seller points out the defect-free condition, which according to this is to be described as new. There are no modifications deviating from the original condition and all attachments are in pristine condition. The seller mentions that an accident can be completely excluded.

Exterior rims/brakes/chassis:

Vredestein tyres - which have a condition of 70-90% - are mounted on the original baroque alloy rims from Mercedes-Benz, the brakes attest the seller a condition of also 70-90%. In terms of chassis, no modifications are recognizable.

Interior:

The dark blue leather interior of this Mercedes-Benz W 126 is in harmony with the light blue exterior colour.Damage or missing parts cannot be detected here and all displays, instruments and controls in the interior of this 380 SEL obviously work perfectly. After deciphering the optional equipment codes, the following features can be listed: electric sunroof, power windows front + rear, cruise control, central locking, exterior mirrors on the right electrically adjustable, automatic antenna, armrest foldable, automatic radio and Radio Becker Mexico Grand Prix.

Mileage

In Holland, the mile speedometer with 23,334 kilometers mileage was replaced by a kilometer speedometer (with 37,357 kilometers) - documentation is available according to the seller. At the moment, about 48,700 kilometers can be read in the instrument cluster. Although there is no longer a checkbook for the vehicle, the total mileage of this Mercedes-Benz seems credible due to its very good overall condition.

Engine

A 204 hp V8 engine with a displacement of 3.8 litres provides propulsion in this S-Class. The individual gears are engaged via a 4-speed automatic transmission and the power of the 8 cylinders is thus transmitted to the rear wheels. According to seller statements, a final service took place in June 2019.

Subsoil:

The seller describes the condition of the underside of the 380 SEL as rustproof and in accordance with the low mileage. No other S-Class was built more often than the S-Class of the W 126 model series. This Mercedes-Benz 380 SEL offered here is a sedan which, according to the seller, is in exceptionally good condition, which almost resembles a new car. In addition, the SEL has a very low mileage.
