I'm sure the SEL's were V8 starting when?

I want an SEL too. these cars are very durable to be had so cheap these days.

I've found a few benz so far if anybody is interested that are in good shape for cheap prices. I'm becoming a benz nut too so if anybody wants a lead on one, give me a holler I'm building a folder in my favorites..have 10 benz's so far.

1985 300D..nice model. inline 6 too? nice.
The V8 dated back to the 1963 W100 I think....that was Benz's first production V8 right?

The first V8 powered SEL's in the timeframe you listed (1972-1991) were the 1972 W108's and w109'S.
  • The M116 powered the W108 280SEL 3.5
  • The M117 powered the W108 280 SEL 4.5
  • The M116 powered the W109 300 SEL 3.5.
  • The M117 powered the W109 300SEL 4.5
  • The M100 powered the W109 300SEL 6.3
