This 1966 Mercedes-Benz 250SE was purchased new by the seller’s father, who reportedly took delivery of the car in Germany before relocating it to California and, later, Utah. It remained in storage from 2004 until 2017, at which time it was serviced with the replacement of the tires, fuel pump, battery, and spark plugs. The car is finished in light blue over blue and is powered by a 2.5-liter M129 inline-six mated to a four-speed manual transmission. Equipment includes steel wheels with painted center caps and polished beauty rings, chrome trim, a wood dash panel, and an aftermarket cassette stereo. This W108 is now offered on behalf of the seller’s mother with recent service records and a clean Utah title.
The seller states that the exterior has been refinished in its original Horizon Blue, and it features quad headlights, a driver-side mirror, dual exhaust outlets, and chrome bumpers, window surrounds, and trim. Bubbling paint, corrosion, and other flaws are visible in the gallery, and the rubber trim has separated from the front bumper. The passenger-side chrome fender trim is pulled out, and the hood ornament is broken. A replacement Mercedes-Benz hood emblem accompanies the car. A walk-around video is provided by the seller, as is footage showcasing the headlights and taillights.
The steel wheels wear body-color Mercedes-Benz center caps and polished beauty rings. Hankook Optimo tires were reportedly fitted in 2017.
Blue seating is accompanied by black carpets, blue door panels, and a white headliner. Wood trim adorns the dash, and interior equipment includes an aftermarket Realistic cassette stereo, a lockable glovebox, manual wind-up windows, and floor mats. The driver’s door panel is damaged.
The two-spoke steering wheel fronts a 140-mph speedometer, a clock, and gauges for temperature, oil pressure, and fuel level. The five-digit odometer shows 62k miles, and total mileage is unknown. A start-up clip is provided above, and additional footage of the dash is provided.
The fuel-injected 2.5-liter M129 inline-six sends power to the rear wheels through a four-speed manual transmission. Service in 2017 is said to include the replacement of the fuel pump, battery, spark plugs, hoses, and gaskets. The fuel tank was also repaired at that time due to rust damage.
Rust is noted on the underside, and additional photos of the suspension and chassis are viewable in the gallery.
