There is a guy i want to go check outs car but he doesnt seem to know enough about it....maybe it was tagged wrong or had an engine swap? coz doesnt 300 mean 3L or atleast close to it and did any w108/109 come with fuel injection?

We have equipment for assisting with placing the car on a trailer. Please call with any questions.

RE: w108/109? 1970 300sel inline 6?

The W109 300SEL 6-cylinder had the fuel injected M189 engine. 1970 was the last year of production with the 6 cylinder engine, it was replaced by the V8s up to 1972 although still badged as the 300SEL.

Last year for the M189 was 1967.The 1968-1970 300SEL has a M130 which was then replaced with the M116 in 1971 (3.5) and then the M117 (4.5) 1972-1973.

Sorry, my mistake.[:I]
Yes the 68-70 300SEL was the M130. It's still a 6 cylinder but it's a 2.8 rather than a 3Ltr.
