Michel's car is of course a euro, which would be of appeal to some prospective buyers.  THe red grille is a bit hard to swallow, but at least we know it was a quality paint job and interior work.  I would prefer it in its original Milan, but still an attractive option for someone in the market. 

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

The fact that nobody has bought this car yet is a good indication of the market... as in practically non existent unless you list it for a very low price.

dunno about that TJ.  if im spending 20k on a 40 year old classic, im not going to buy a car that deviates a lot from the original.  we aren't so good over here due to our isolation.   gotta be positive!

on ebay wanting buy it now $23500. says storage for 12 years but running. the VIN is hard to make out but appears to be #5318. checking the registry identifies this is the car and formerly owned by oversize.  The ad leaves a little to be desired in my opinion.  I believe after Oversize, it went to Darwin, and is now back in NSW. unregistered. It is evidently the same car as it has mb tex seats (not leather), a 126 steering wheel, no 6.9 badge on the boot. note when the previous owner has the car it had some massive rust holes in it, they appear gone so any interesting party better check it well - for the buy it now price you would hope it was done nicely!
the dash has also evidently been reskinned at some point, doesnt look like the right patina but inspection would tell. same KMs as previous owner so doesnt look like its moved in a long time. australian car originally
