Tell me I'm wrong but shouldn't the 420 have a 160 mph speedo. And 560 has 170

This is a swap in my opinion unless I am mistaken

Looks like the 300SE sold right around what it probably was worth. Might have been able to fetch a little more by addressing some of the issues that were brought up, but still a decent price.

I think my car sold for the right price. I believe the new buyer (who seems like a great guy) is going to be very happy I’m not sure what you mean by “issues” other than the dusty engine bay. Which I cleaned when the new pad went on.

I did notice that the commenter who implied in the bat thread that I was a neglectful owner turned out to be the same person simultaneously selling a very similar car. And that the moment his deal was finalized he did something of an about face and became one of my biggest boosters in the final moments of the auction. Funny that, isn’t it.

Man, look at that front bumper. The car is nice, but you hit something at 10-15 mph you'll be shopping for a grille and hood too. Same with the rear. Besides that a very nice car, I'll watch this one, curious for how much will go. There have been a lot of W126/C126s on BAT this year, I noticed they don't end as high as they did at the begining of the year. The market appears to have cooled down a bit.
