Well thanks again for taking time to reply to me! I would take a 4sp if I had to, I just want the se or sel, not the S. Would love to speak with you sometime, you seem very knowledgable about these cars

There is no S, the SE is the short wheelbase. I have NEVER seen a 5spd w126 in person in the US before, and car shopping is my hobby.

jhodg5ck (jonathon) is one of the most knowledgeable guys on this board about w126s, and he collects odd MBs as HIS hobby...

280 sel eruo

Hi guys, sounds like you know something about the car I just bought?

I have a 1984 280 sel eruo, automatic, leather seats, gold color, I believe I read there were only like 20,000 of these cars made?

Any idea of the value of what I have. Its low mileage, only 82,000 miles and pretty good shape overall. A few rust spots and some ding and small dents in the body.

I need the center piece out of the hood ornament, I have the circly but no center piece.

Thanks for any advice or help you can give me.

You should post a new thread in the w126 forum, not resurrect a 10-month old post. Your car is rare for the US but not for the world, and production had to be more than 20k. Value? Gold, auto, rust = $2000.
