Up for sale is this impeccably restored 1978 Mercedes Benz 350SE 4-Speed! This W116 features Mercedes small 3.5L V8 and standard wheelbase. We believe this is a European imported car, which is evident by the lack of sunroof, partial cloth interior, power front windows + manual rear windows. Also, it features a 4-Speed Manual transmission which makes it a rare combination! The headlights on the car are US spec though, so please judge for yourself or ask questions! This 350SE has undergone an $8,500 mechanical refresh as well as a massive $41,500 bare metal exterior restoration!! This 350SE is owned by a local car enthusiasts who is liquidating a small portion of his collection. This 350SE is as clean and straight of a W116 you will ever find. It runs and drives very well, all lights gauges, and windows work as they should. This is an AC model, although in recent months the air con has slowly gone from cold to warm and will need service, but the compressor does seem to kick on. The only other issue the car has presented, is when it's cold its high idle function works a little too well....idles very high when stone cold, but as soon as it warms up after a few minutes, it settles down perfectly. The interior is in fantastic original condition with only a few spots of wear that could be addressed. The paint, body, trim, and glass are all in superb condition. With $50,000+ worth of receipts (not including the original purchase price) someone will be getting one very nice W116! Please call or e-mail with any questions. The reserve has been set very low!!!
