You see quite a few W126s in junkyards these days— in fact, the rise in scrap steel prices seems to have doomed all but the the most flawless of the big 1980s Benzes— but the S-Class of the late 1960s is seldom seen in The Crusher’s waiting room. Here’s one that I found in a Denver self-service yard last week.
This car is profoundly rusty (by Colorado standards), which suggests that it may have migrated from a more oxide-friendly state to the east.
I think it’s a 250S, but the trunklid (or maybe just the emblem) from a V8 car indicates that we may be looking at a mix-and-match special.
Everything seems intact, if grungy, under the hood. There’s no telling when the last time this car moved under its own power might have been, but it may be decades.
The KPH speedometer may be the result of parts-swapping, or we could be looking at a gray-market import. Either way, The Crusher will be eating this old German soon enough.
