1980 Mercedes Benz 300SD
44,265 miles.
"The nicest W116 I have seen in the past 25 years, bar none"
Dean Laumbach
This 1980 Mercedes Benz 300SD is presently housed in a facility with number of six figure exotic automobiles.
This "odd duck" or "unicorn" is getting more attention than the rotisserie restored 1971 280SL it is parked along side at our shop.
This particular w116 is finished in 681 Manila Beige and still wears its all original paint all around.
The interior is finished in Bamboo Leather and is in impeccable condition all around.
Bright and clear Zebrano wood inlays.
Mechanically this vehicle is like a brand new Rolex watch.
Previous owner (2nd owner) was a true auto aficionado and had every potential mechanical issue addressed in advanced before driving .
The vehicle has had the following items addressed:
Brand new climate control servo from Mercedes Benz.
AC system properly converted to W134A with new hoses, expansion valve and dryer.
The AC blows ice cold through all the proper vents !!!
All fluids have been changed as well as new motor and transmission mounts.
All belts and hoses inspected and changed as needed.
The vehicle is absolutely 100% rust free.
The original owner was from Northern California and used the car sporadically for fair weather usage.
According to the original owner, this car was NEVER driven in rain, and it shows
Second owner spend the better part of 3 years searching for the absolute best w116 he could possibly find.
Mission accomplished with this particular example.
I am certain there is not a nicer w116 on the planet barring the one in The Mercedes Benz Museum in Germany that has 0 miles on it.
Period correct MXV tires on all four corner with near flawless classic steel wheels and hubcaps.
Period correct coco mats.
The only upgrade to this vehicle is high end Kenwood head unit with iPod jack in the glove box.
Speakers are also upgraded with original Mercedes Benz speaker covers intact.
Original spare tire and tools in order as well as all original books, 6 keys, and the original window sticker.
