15” Gullideckel wheels wear a silver finish and come fitted with Lemans Touring all-season tires measuring 205/65 on all four corners with date codes from 2018. The wheels have been refinished under current ownership and show no signs of curb rash or damage. Four wheel discs along with anti-lock brakes are fitted as standard.

A cold-start and walk-around video has been provided by the seller below.
After offering the first turbo diesel passenger car to ever be sold in the W116 chassis, Mercedes continued their flagship diesel lineup for the W126 including turbocharged variants for the US market. Produced for only two years, the OM603-powered 350SDL is exceptionally rare with less than 3,000 units produced. This final year example has been well maintained with full service history documented from new showing a clean exterior and interior along with refinished wheels. This W126 looks as good as ever and has been well cared for by its previous owners making for a great opportunity for an enthusiast to purchase a worry-free example of a classic turbo diesel S-Class.
