Seeing a W126 in an 1981 movie (Body Heat) made me think of this:

Who here has the oldest W126 or know of somebody who owns one of the 1979 W126's?

I’d love to see a 1979 Mercedes-Benz 280 S 126 chassis with its carbs, manual transmission, cloth seats (more than likely green…[:0]) and steel wheel and wheel covers. [:)]

I saw an 80 280 SE on eBay.de not long ago with the manual tranny – these cars are all European market, needless to say; in the US they would be grey.

I've got one that's close- my 500SE is production #250 which i think makes it about the 100th produced in 1980. Manual seats and antena and probably originally steel wheels, they are the only ones listed in the manual. Might be one of the oldest AMGs as well but I don't know enough about that to know.

yeah, I now remember your post when you first told us about your 500SE. Happy 25th for your 500SE.

Oh man, a W126 1979 280S and a special edition 1994 560SEL would be the ultimate two cars to have in my, or perhaps any W126 enthusiast's garage.

Thanks. To celebrate the occasion it will hopefully get a new exhaust, new wheels and a new paintjob. Should keep us both happy for a few more years.
