The Mercedes-Benz W126 is a now legendary series of flagship vehicles manufactured by Mercedes-Benz until 1991 and was a successor to the earlier W116 series and was offered in a straight six, V8 and the now renown diesel models. The 1981-85 diesel models are now considered to be one of the most reliable engines ever produced and one of the key reasons for Mercedes popularity around the world today as the ultimate long distance and durable touring car with many models still being used around the globe as taxi cabs boasting many hundreds of thousands of miles on the clock. They offered a unique combination of luxury, exclusivity, economy and reliability that could not possibly be matched by any other brand making it the vehicle of choice by countless diplomats, executives and other such entities. These luxurious cars still command a strong demand internationally, especially low mileage and well maintained and unabused examples such as this particular example.
This particular car was obviously always garaged by its owner's and the original factory 'Astral Silver Metallic' color paint is in beautiful condition as is the original and 'Dark Blue' interior which is also in absolutely gorgeous shape with virtually no signs of wear with the original dashboard and the wood veneer in beautiful original shape (obvioulsy always garaged and covered from the elements).
The car's factory options include 5 cylinder Turbo Diesel engine, automatic transmission, power assisted steering, power assisted four wheel disc brakes, tinted glass, cruise control, electric window lifts, electrically heated rear window, fully independent suspension, power assisted four wheel disc brakes, anti-lock brakes, automatic antenna, automatic air conditioning with climate control, central locking, power mirror, power antenna, 'Becker' radio/cassette, factory sunroof and desirable factory 'Bundt' alloy wheels.
The car drives exactly like such a well maintained and serviced Mercedes-Benz Diesel with only 74K original miles (ultra low mileage and extraordinarily rare for these notoriously hard driven vehicles and virtually just broken in for this legendary engine) should and must be seen and driven to be truly appreciated! The engine is extremely strong with no noticeable oil leaks and the temperature always remains cool. All the power options are working as they should including the original 'Becker Grand Prix' stereo cassette, the air conditioning and the optional sunroof (an expensive factory option in 1985).
Without a doubt, this is one of the finest built cars ever made by Mercedes-Benz, now becoming more desirable (with only 25 MPG city and 30 MPG highway) than ever before - certainly you will look long and hard to find a finer head-turning example with such low original and well maintained miles and with every option working as it should available anywhere else! This particular model was obviously always garaged by its owners with no accidents and boasts a clean CARFAX report confirming both the original mileage and consistent service history since new. The car has had no accidents and has all its original parts and absolutely no rust whatsoever!
