What a fantastic car! The W126 came to market in 1979 and still felt modern in 1991. The car looks even more beautiful every year. Classic, elegant lines drawn by Mr. Bruno Sacco.
This Mercedes 300 SE from the W126-Baureihe was found in Spain with only 84.000 completely documented kilometers. A beautiful unrestored and documented W126. The original service book is present, complete with stamps and original Datacard. This car was sold through Mercedes Benz dealer ‘Comercial Mercedes-Benz’ in Sevilla, Spain and was sold new to Mr. Manuel Ramos on the 14th of February 1991. The handover-inspection was performed on the 19th of February 1991. Mr Ramos came of age and wanted to buy his last new car, the W126 as a run-out model. He had the car up to 2017 when he gave up driving. The 2nd caretaker also took great care in ownership of this W126.
The car was orded in 199 Blauschwarz (Blue-Black) over a 071 Anthracite cloth interior. The original owner opted for the incredbily reliable M103 engine: the 3,0 liter, chain-driven, inline-six making 188 horsepower. Very smooth, very silent. It’s the original (matching numbers) unit as per the build sheet. A proper Euro-spec with a 5-speed Manual (rare on the W126!), A/C, Sunroof-delete.
The paint is all factory-original and sub-120 microns. Amazing to see a W126 in a condition this original, this pure. The body is incredibly straight – no dings, no scratches. The quality of these Benzes is just something different. The chrome and trim is original and looking great with a deep shine in the chrome. The doors shut and ‘clunk’ like on the 1st day. The body has no rust and it was never welded. The quality of the undercarriage is exceptional. All factory metal and coatings.
The interior is clean, original and tight. Nice clean original carpets, clean headliner. The anthracite cloth seats are free of usermarks and they feel and sit tight: as you may expect with this mileage. The steeringwheel has an as-new feel with proper texture. The dashboard is free of cracks and the wood shines like new.
The trunk shows the factory trunk mat in beautiful clean condition. Under the mat is the factory spare wheel with factory Uniroyal tire – never used. The jack looks like it was never used and the set of tools is present.
The engine-bay looks excellent. the M103 inline-six runs fantastic: perfect cold-start and running very smooth and silent. Also notice the original decals on the airfilter and engine bay. The exhaust manifolds show their original grey-ish color: only with low-miles Benzes. The engine-number still has it’s white-coloured letters visible. The car drives exellent and the transmission shifts easily. The car has been documented very extensively and shows no ‘holes’ in the service history. Every stamp for every service is present in the book and it comes with a lot of invoices.
Please take a look at the pictures. Recent spanish Inspection rapports are present documenting the mileage too.

The car comes with the full set of Manuals, Books and ofcourse the servicebook. It shows all the dealer stamps of the services performed. It contains the ‘Wagenkarte’ / Buildsheet with all info. A tool-kit in perfect condition is present in the trunk.
Absolute collector quality W126 in an amazing shape. Unrestored, documented mileage and 100% original paint.
