OK, whilst rudely ignoring Guillaume illusive brochures and Ptashek's acquaintance( :)), I deduct:

manual 1
auto     7

W116John, and Guillaume.. what are your cars?
BTW.. there are countless members here, that DO come out of the woodwork at times.
Maybe this is the time?

No 280's or 350's, but...

2 300SD - automatic floor shift
2 450SE - automatic floor shift
2 450SEL - automatic floor shift
2 6.9 - automatic floor shift

The two column shift columns that I have came from early 450SE's, but every W116 that I have personally ever seen in a junkyard, including 280's and a couple euro imports (around 20 total) had automatic floor shift.

Here in South Africa, only the 280S, 280SE and 350SE were supplied.

I have seen a lot of cars, and it was quite common for 280S to be manual.  On the contrary, it is very unusual to see manual shift in 280SE or 350SE.

I have at the moment (including parts cars):

280S manual : x2
280S auto : x1
280SE manual : 0
280SE auto : x3
350SE manual : 0
350SE auto : x2
6.9 auto : x2

'76 6.9 Euro, '78 6.9 AMG, '80 280SE, '74 350SE, '82 500SEL euro full hydro, '83 500SEL euro full hydro , '81 500SL

I considered that question.
When we reach 100, I will do the stats on the whole line of engines, maybe even keep going from there.
So yes, please list all cars with all transmission types.

Here's a list of owners so far.  List assumes all manual cars to date are 4 speed.  Also assumes floyd111 has 3 280Ses, and that UTn_boy has 2 280Ses.  Is this correct?


Floyd111 (3), UTn_boy (3), gavin116 (1), ptashek(1), Guillaume (15), w116john (1), Casey (eight) , beagle2022 (1), Pieter Lötter (1), s class (10)

? You were listed as having 3 cars, and your answer is "yes, 280 S and 280SEL?"

I thought Gavin was asking specifically about the 280 models I had.  I do, in fact have 3.  two 280 models, and a 450.  My apologies on the confusion.
