105 1978 Mercedes-Benz 450SEL 6.9 116.036.12.003902 $100,000 $130,000 N/R $156,750 €134,805 21% Astral Silver over Blue leather. This exceptional example was sold new in early 1978 to a gentleman near Chicago who maintained a large personal automotive stable. Dressed in Astral Silver Metallic over a Blue leather interior, the 6.9 would remain in his care until 2016 with less than 19,000 total miles recorded. Maintenance records indicate that the sedan was sequestered early in its life and has been driven less than 1,000 miles in the past 32 years. It has recently been treated to a thorough detailing and mechanical refurbishment. Accompanied by its manuals, warning triangle, factory fire extinguisher, tool roll, and what may be one of the last NOS sets of factory blue floor mats, this 6.9 is among the finest surviving examples and can assume a place of honor at any gathering of Mercedes-Benz cars.

I cant seem to find any other pictures of it.

@$156 750 by far the highest sell price I have ever seen.

Possibly the deceased, former owner had hidden gold bars or bags of coke in that car, and someone found out. 8)

Yep, that was one of mine. 
believe it or not, I purchased it as a parts car for not much money. then thought it was too good to part out and sold it on a few years later.
very original, good mechanically, drove well, but had rust in bad places.
hopefully the rust has been dealt with properly.

been a while since I updated so a few more over the last months
not really for sale but the sad end of a car I noted on an Australian sale site.  Victorian plates likely long since expired

sorry about the double up, internet a bit out of sorts.  #1558 is a 1976 that was listed at $7500. unregistered in July I think and sold promptly
I had the last entry on this car in 2005 when it had 235000kms and sold for $2000. its appreciated whilst deteriorating!!

#4965 has just popped up on carsales.com.au but is sold at the oldtimer centre in NSW.  slightly odd with the over riders.  A brown car, the attached pic is of the car several years ago with the 126 alloys on it.
this 1978 Australian car was sold in 2004 for $13500. then $10000 in 2007. now wants $39500 as of yesterday. it currently has 231000km, whilst in 2004 it had 196000km.

this is the same car in the first three, and second three pics are from 2017 when the car was noted for sale. the first three pics are when the car was noted for sale mid year at around 19k. although it was recently listed as car number #5691, its actually #5646 and is the same car. as it was on a private auction site, I'm not sure what the selling price was, although I think it sold for $19k in 2017.  slightly worse for wear now than previously it seems.
