Introducing my new 420 SEL. I think that the S Class of 1981-1991 are the most stately of the modern flagships. I have wanted what is denoted as the Mercedes W126, for years. Although commonly referred to as a W 126 which is available in many different models and engines , this example is technically classified by Mercedes Benz as a V126, denoting the 7" longer body of the SEL long body saloon. This body designed in 1979 by Bruno Sacco.
Its like a thoroughbred.
Thank you to Steve, Laszlo, and Ingrid at Moran Motorsport.
This also marks the end of Gretchen, my 1974 Mercedes W114, 280. Its been a good run, old girl. My love always.
