No new pictures. When I get it all back together (radio is out for example as it has just been refurbished), I will update.

As far as the colour is concerned, I have never seen another. Whether it is 1 of 1, I have no idea. It was often seen on W123's however, particularly in Queensland, and of course, Sean's W107 is the same colour.

I saw a W116 280SE once in this colour . In S.A but never since on a W116 . So it most definitely is unique .

The picture I posted (from Craig's photobucket) is the latest he has (as per his previous post).
Originally the car had NSW number plates and it came from around the Campbelltown area.

Would the 350SE have much difference in acceleration with the manual gearbox?

Hi Tim Yes and use less fuel . Automatics have really only pulled in front since 6 speed and above automatics. In old automatics only modified ones were faster than a manual. But they are not street friendly.
