FS: W126 Parts Car

I have inherited a mid 80's W126 based on the VIN. It has 500 SE as the badge but I don't think its the real model. The milage indicates 132251. It does not run so it must be towed away. The last thing I remember is that the alternator failed and just sat in the drive way for years. This would be a great parts vehicle if your working on a W126 project. I was going to part it out but that is going to take too long so I am offering it at $1000.00 or best offer. You just need to tow it away. The car is located in the Bay Area (Northern California). PM me if your interested.

It has a straight 6 motor, red interior, maroon exterior. The exterior is not the original color. Based on the color under the trunk lid it may have been originally dark gray.

Here are some pics below:

Maybe 1979-1982???????

Your car has Euro Headlights, US Bumpers, Looks like a pre 1986 because of the engine. Engine looks like a 2.8 with double overhead cams. Maybe the trunk lid was replaced and painted. If the lower Door Trim has grooves then it is a 1985 or older. The headlights, bumpers and grill with star are worth at least 700 dollars with no rust. Climate control is generation 1. I think it might be a 1979-1982 model... Jim

Hi Jim,

Thank you so much for all that info. I really don't know much about the car. Looking to make some room in the driveway so its going on sale. The last thing I need right now is another project car. So, if anyone out there has a project that needs some of the parts, we can make a deal! I am a motivated seller at this point. Please make reasonable offers.
