I don't know about the Canadian market, but here in Australia the W126 380 was the flagship model up until 1985/86. Here, the SEL and SEC came standard with burl walnut trim and power front seats. Heated seats (front and/or rear) and power rear seats were options.
Sorry to disagree, but my partner drives an Australian, compliance plate, 380SEL from 1982, but it only has the drivers seat manual hight adjustment. It has a lot of luxuries that my car hasn't, such as climate control and a electric antenna (ever tried to put one in afterwards?)
Most of the extras are shown on the tag though.

Interesting. I think your car was not special in the sense that it was the â€˜top of the lineâ€™ in 1983 in the US market, the only other 126 being the 300 SD. In 84 when the US market 500 SEL was available, it came with all the items you noted.
if it is then likely you have a Canadian spec benz which may be different than the USA benz in respect to emissions, bumpers, options etc. all the labeling on the car will be original metric with lots of german verbage.

I have been approached by a member looking for more performance rear sway bars. Historically, there has been enough interest for an order every year around this time, so I figured I'd post this to gauge interest. I need at least 8 more confirmed buyers to place an order. Last batch was $230...
When I was tearing up insulation to put down dynamat the passenger side set of these died. On the driver side I realized it could be salvaged and reused. I'm guessing it's insulation but I have no idea. On the passenger side there was a painted one closer to the firewall that looked kind of...
