If that's the case, what would you suggest I do?
Thank you. It's good fun isn't it. Mine came to 35,588 DM and using the AUD converter from German Mark it was $29,785.04. I'm not sure how accurate this is from the time in 1978 but that was quite a lot of money back then. According to the internet that's $164,852.43 in 2020. A new S series Merc now is around $400,000. I'd say mine is pretty good value and much more classic than the new ones.

Florida plates? whose car is that? Looks nice.

Somebody on the W116 Facebook group.
That site has been my go to for many years, and is a fantastic price/options reference for several models over the years.

My favourite feature is you can export and save the exact list for your own car. Mine's here:

Very interesting - my W116 ('76 350SE, with electric windows, central locking and tinted glass only) would have cost DEM38,674 (about €19,775 / US$23,000 / STG£18,000 / AU$32,400) including 11% VAT / sales tax.

For comparison, the average house price in the UK in 1976 was £11,520...
