In particular the new paint is stunningly even without any orange peel surface.But there is nothing special about the car which the ad or the salesguy would have mentioned: No restoration, no celebrity ownership, etc.

Pictures are all over google, and here is a link to a thread on this very forum showing pictures: https://forum.w116.org/interiors-and-exteriors/15-inch-bundts-available-from-classic-center/Fuchs, the original manufacturer of the Bundt wheel, doesn't make a 16" version. Only aftermarket companies do, so buy 16" Bundts at your own risk. 16" Bundts will fit on a W116, but may rub the inner wheel wells in the front when turning the steering wheel very sharp. Spacers would help in this case, and make sure the offset isn't too different or they'll scrape the outer tie rod ends and the outer part of the upper control arms. 16" wheels will often require a wider tire, too. Having said that, ride quality will suffer a bit, but to what degree is subjective to the brand of tire and how well the driver is in tune with things like this. The trade off is that there is more surface area of tire on the road giving better handling. Traction will suffer when on wet roads, though.
