There is a beautiful 300sel that someone is selling around me. It looks pretty clean and very sharp in that color.
the black leather goes well with the red too. for some reason I really like this car.

I believe its a 300SE and not a 300SEL, the rear doors unmistakably is for SWB models.

Yeah that's an SE. The 300SEL badge sits too high up as well.

The bonnet doesnt seem to close properly by the looks of it. Also not so sure about that black stripe down the side of it. Like the black leather though!

If theres no other give-aways, you can always tell an SE from an SEL at first glance by the chrome piece that divides the rear window from the rear quarterlight. On SE's its less thick and just a simple piece of bright metal, same on the inside. On SEL's its thicker, body coloured on the central outside bit i think, and on the interior it has a panel that is matching the rest of the interior rather than just a thin piece of chrome.

I'm likin the red though :) And it has a rear blind perhaps?
