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.
