A beautiful W126 300SE that has just 31k miles recorded from new.
Finished in Blue Black metallic with black cloth trim. It is well-specified with automatic climate control, electric seats, cruise control and alloy wheels.
It has had curtains fitted in the back, which are rather fun, and a wood steering wheel which is easily changed if not to your taste.
The key thing with this car is that is a recent import from the kind climate of Japan. Rust is the big issue with all UK W126s, often rendering them beyond economical repair. This example, having never seen salt or our climate before now is in quite incredible corrosion-free condition. The underside is outstanding.
Nice paintwork and brightwork and a superb interior with zero wear to the upholstery as befits its low mileage.
The speedo has been changed to a MPH unit but the original KMPH comes with the car. The car has just had all new discs and pads, new caliper, new battery and a new fuel pump.
There are a few small jobs the next owner may wish to carry out to take the car to the next level, but what an incredible car to start with.
Just passed its MoT with no advisories. Runs and drives very nicely.
Rust-free, low-mileage 126s in this condition are extremely hard to find today and this example looks very sharp indeed.
