I love the colour even faded... (nothing that Jerry can't fix)

However, I used to have a W126 280SE and sadly, it was such a slug box

Thumbs up Re: Car of the week

Perhaps the ignition was retarded ? These DOHC engines perform very well when in proper tune. ie 36% BTC at mid thirties RPM .. Vacuum disconnected.

98 octane Fuel ??

Yes the Australian version suffered a lot with the low compression and retarded ignition.

You can get over the 2nd, but not the first.

Tachometer showing 1500 rpm and no oil pressure is a bit of a worry!

I suspect a gauge cluster problem on the left affecting oil pressure and temperature.....

Itís amazing how cheap these are. And without some of the features that get very expensive to maintain such as SBC brakes, air suspension, ABC etc.

The convertible I bought a few weeks ago was very cheap...



If one is not desperate for four doors, these are modern and very reliable cars.

This 380SE looks nice for the money, great colour combination and looks like it has at least some service history:
