This 1989 Mercedes-Benz 260SE was purchased new by a US Diplomat in Germany and subsequently imported and federalized into the US in 1992. The seller acquired the car in 2017 and has added approximately 7k of total 116k miles showing on the odometer. Finished in Pearl Gray Metallic (122) over Grey leather (268) upholstery, power is provided by a 2.6-liter inline-six paired with a four-speed automatic transmission. Equipment includes a power sunroof, a power antenna, air conditioning, 15″ wheels, anti-lock disc brakes, and a Becker Grand Prix cassette player. The fuel system was serviced in 2022 and the brake pads and rotors were replaced in 2023. This Euro W126 is now offered with a window sticker, service records dating back to the 90's, import documentation, a clean Carfax report, and a clean Texas title in the seller’s name.
The exterior is finished in Pearl Gray Metallic (122) with dark gray lower-body cladding. Equipment includes a sunroof, an automatic antenna, and European-specification bumpers, headlights, and taillights. The seller notes the trunk has been repainted to correct scratches, and the vertical panels show some light crazing up close. In July 2023 the seller had the sunroof rails and clips replaced. Detailed photos have been provided in the gallery.
The factory steel 15″ wheels feature Euro Mercedes-Benz wheel covers and are mounted with 205/65 Pirelli Four Seasons tires. Stopping power is provided by four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes. The seller reports the brake pads and rotors were replaced in January 2023.

Zebrano wood veneer accents the dashboard, center stack, and door panels. Amenities include a Becker Grand Prix cassette player, power windows, power locks, and air conditioning. The seller reports scratches on the wood trim, and the radio will not power on in cold weather.
The airbag steering wheel frames a 160-mph speedometer, a 7k-rpm tachometer, an analog clock, and auxillary gauges for fuel level, coolant temperature, oil pressure, and instant economy. The six-digit odometer shows 116k miles, approximately 7k of which were added by the seller.
