just got a W116 280S from SA, no rust at all 100k on the clock 76 model, just registered it and told by DVLA this is the only one registered in the UK, probably in Europe also as a RHD, apparently only the 280SE was sold here.
anybody know any different, these were sold to SA and AUS...

I have new rubbers and a rear screen without de-lamination, I just don't have the courage to try and fit it myself.

These cars are getting scarce and rust is an infamous issue, but this one might be ok-ish considering "full body renovation and respray four years ago": someone has spent money albeit standard unknown.
