The W126 Mercedes-Benz S-Class was a plus sized luxury cruiser built like a tank from 1979 through 1991. This isn't a car that will carve corners like a Miata or coddle you to sleep like a Buick, but somewhere under layers of granite lives a heart that beats like clock and a ride quality like an orbiting satellite. Find this 1991 Mercedes-Benz 300SE here on eBay bidding for $8,100 reserve-not-met with 6 days to go, located in Lakeland, FL.
This W126 is an absolute cream puff -- it has only 39k miles on the odometer and looks really nice in the hi-res photos provided by the seller, who routinely sells low mile cars on eBay. This one has been on the block for a few rounds, the last time it reached $12,600 before the end of the auction and the reserve was still not met. It will be interesting to see where/when/if the reserve comes off.
The 300SE version of the big S-Class W126 is powered by the 3.0 liter M103 inline-6 mated to a 4-speed automatic gearbox. Power is rated at 179 horsepower and 188 ft-lbs of torque in the US version.
