Love them! My dad bought this about 20 years ago (passed it on to me about 5 years ago) and it is still going strong.

Had it repainted and the front wings replaced a few years ago and replaced all the injectors last year.

That's all it has needed in 20 years (regular servicing keeps these things going strong).

How many 300SEL 6 cyl cars are out there? How many still have the center console padding? Original interiors(back seats)?

How about some photos of these fine sedans.

**Thanks for the emails on my 280SEL I am selling. It's still F/S. Here is the link:

I have a 67 300 SEL with the M189 engine. It has 110k original miles,
all receipts since the very first day, original paint and original leather.
I am the second owner, had it since 1995. CA black plated.

Green with green leather (took me MANY years to find this color combo). Car has no silly aftermarket wheels, chrome wheel arches or aftermarket stereo. It's bonestock and I have the center console

Best regards

I'm not sure they're hot items or special targets for theft, but in my case, I contracted a guy to restore mine, and he disappeared with the car (to make a long, complicted story short). After the police report, etc etc, it was eventually just written off.
