1980 Mercedes Benz 300SD
44,265 miles.
Unrestored museum quality survivor!
The W116 sedans are much heralded as the benchmark sedan with regards to built quality, performance and safety during their production run from 1973-1980.
The 300SD is truly a special automobile as it was offered with possibly one of the most durable motors and drive-trains ever built.
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:

Second owner spend the better part of 3 years searching for the absolute best w116 he could possibly find.
