107 and 126 is the body. If its a 560sel then it's a 5.6L engine. I just bought a 560SEC and I have a 5.6L in it. P.S. I am also a first time MBZ owner. So far as I know W126 is the platform on the car.


w126 is what you have.


Yup...a very thirsty 5.6 litre V8 :)


107 Chassis refers to the 2 seat roadster that was available in the US from 1973 through 1989 as the 450sl, 380sl, 500sl and 560sl.

There is a V6 engine in the W163 and it is said to be 112, so what is said to be for the V8 in W126
