I could very well be wrong but that looks like an American spec W123.

Re: which model using this facelift
That is NOT a Facelift. In fact that's the earliest iteration of the W123.

But the car depicted is a US Market car. In the US those days, they have different lighting requirements. To cut a long story short, the US cars those days can NOT have too much light!! They can't use Halogens, just Sealed Beam units..

Why ?? So that the lights will not blind incoming road users and also you will NOT drive too fast at night....

Same as the Speedometer...calibrated until 85MPH only.....Tuh masa zaman Oil Crisis and stupid legislation lah....

In MY and EU and the rest of the world, same 4 Mata kind of headlamps BUT Halogens and without the yellow halides. The later Black Engined ones all came with square lensed headlamps.

If you are talking about the bumpers....Those are US Market 'Federal' bumpers. As I said...US Market got funny laws and most European cars got big bumpers slapped on them to meet the so called 'Federal Laws'....Even Ferraris and Porsches are not spared. The W126 S-Class for US-Market has an elongated bumper compared to the rest of the world.

Yup..this is very true. As as result of this, there were cars by virture of its technical innovation like Citroen CXs were not able to panetrate US market as height adjustable suspension was not allowed.
Other european and japenese makers had to make some changes to their offerings in US which transformed some nice cars into not so nice ones.

^^I like your signature, so true!


Yea, the W126 US bumper and headlights are terrible. A lot of US owners of the W126 actually change the protruding US bumpers to Euro versions. LIkewise for the headlights!

Talking about headlights . those were quad-headlights produced by Morette. The same style as produced for Citroens, Fords and Fiats cars. Remember Fiat 131 Racing? with the twin big and small headlights?

Mercedes W201






Mercedes W124

Morette is an aftermarket supplier for Quad Lights set-up which were the rage in the UK/EU from 1997-2000. From Golfs to Astra to Escorts to anything square lamped to be converted to a quad set-up.

As in all fads...petered out in the end...

FIAT Racing..Yum Yum..!

The only thing I know about Morette is that they did front and rear lamps for the MX-5 2nd gen (NB)!

Front lamps:



Rear:


Not to my taste at all...
