W116s definitely getting more notice in the Media presently.  Another article in Mercedes Enthusiast about a 6.9 in this month's edition.

Yes, and more seem to be popping up for sale. This one just appeared here in Ireland.

As we know you take descriptions of used cars with a pinch of salt.
Why would you spend 20,000 on an example and leave
an ill matching petrol tank flap in situ.   Is that black electrician's
tape that I see wrapped around the ill fitting grommet for the wiring for the rear driver's side door.
Would be interested to know the registration.  Interesting to watch the market.

Always interested to know why retailers hide the registration numbers of vehicles on sale -there can
be nothing more in the Public Domain than the registration plate of a vehicle.

This car posted on flickr in 2018 is described as 1977 whereas one in advert is stated to be 1979-
both 450 - interesting to know if they are the same -otherwise there is a new entry in the register.
