1974+ ( by the size of the bumpers )

Most likely a 450 SE/SEL being that it's J.R.'s ride.

But the badge on the 2nd thumbnail says loudly "280 SE" ;)

He moved up to a 380 in later series - although one would have expected a 500

in episode 3.03 is visible this badge on teh rear.
Am I the only one, who can see it as 450 SEL? That should mean, that since 3rd season, J.R.s car was changed to higher model (but in same colour)

The Americans really destroyed the looks of cars with all their federalisation nonsense.

This must be the ugliest w116 I have ever seen. Nice colour though.

At one time he drove a 280S. Not a 280SE, just an "s"

Americans are not the only ones...many nations have to add lights, change bumpers, license plate brackets, or so on to meet various jurisdictional requirements. I can't help but notice American cars in European films tend to have extra flashers mounted high on the fenders, or random amber extensions on their rear light clusters.

Skid, you are talking to someone who has the personality and respect of a concrete wall. Not to mention he's been gone since October 2010. :D Good riddance, I must say.

To go the extra mile: not only optical, also technical US-versions are worse than the European and Japanese originals. :p The 70ies had been the worst times, but it didn't really became better until now.

For enviromental laws -expecially the Californian- US-spec cars are often/mostly extremely curbed. If you make the direct competition, you'll get tantrums. When the $ is low to the € (as in the last years), many classic cars were shipped from the USA to Europe. Clueless buyers becoming upset, appreciators are swearing about downgrading this annoying stuff.

Uh,no. Compare the modifying of the engine and bigger bumpers to, in some cases, US cars having ENTIRE ends of their body being modified to fit in all of that amber and fog lights. In some cases, manufacturers restyle the ENTIRE car for a market just to fit EU specs.

Referring to the thumbnails of J.R.'s car that Stronghold posted back in '07, those are of his first dark green Mercedes, which is the 280SE...and not the actual car-pic here. Are we sure this Mercedes (I think what was and/or is called a Reseda-Green) is also a 280SE? In other words, Stronghold's pics and the actual car pictured here are not the same Mercedes, and that's why I was wondering if both were 280SE's? Also I think this would be closer to a 1978 or '79 model.
