Description:

1980 Mercedes-Benz S-Class

The Mercedes-benz 300SD w116 chassis was produced only for the U.S. and Canadian markets making these vehicles somewhat difficult to find in any kind of reasonable condition. Originally purchased in Beverly Hills, California the car has never left California and is a completely rust free car. Owned and driven by 2 ladies. The chassis was one of Mercedes' best and safest cars ever built for the time. This is a great example of solid German engineering and classic styling. The car is equipped with a 5 cylinder diesel motor (OM617.950) that has a reputation for running a million miles. The motor will start first time in very cold conditions. The motor was inspected and valves adjusted by Mopar legend Paul Rossi. With only 85,327 original miles this car will run for many years to come. The exterior has been refreshed in the original silver (paint code 180) the interior is blue leather. The front seats are in very good condition the rear seats have some damage on the seat cushion and could use new stuffing. The carpets, headliner, door panels, dash wood, and trunk are spotless. All window mechanisms work, and AC is working. The dash has cracks but is not faded or scuffed and the parcel deck and speaker covers are in really good condition. The Becker Mexico radio works and adds to the beauty of the dash. This is a rare opportunity to own an iconic "S" class Mercedes a car whose timeless styling made a classic luxury sedan. Happy Bidding and Happy Motoring.
