Moss Green: 1975 Mercedes-Benz 450 SE W116

The W116 chassis Mercedes-Benz S-Class was presented to the public in September of 1972 with inline-6 and optional V8 powerplants.  It was a huge car in long wheelbase variant and tipped the scales at a healthy 3900 lbs, but is known for a smooth ride and rugged build quality. The 450 SE variant of the W116 is motivated by a 4.5 liter single overhead camshaft (per bank) 90 degree V8 that pushes 214 horsepower and 266 ft-lbs of torque in a 3-speed automatic gearbox.  Find this 1975 Mercedes-Benz 450 SE W116 offered for $15,900 in Blue Ash, OH via craigslist.
