Euro W126?

I found this car at a local junkyard, and was wondering if it is a euro model? It has no badging on the rear at all...But it has the euro style climate control with the two large knobs. I was thinking about going back and getting the bumpers and mirrors.

If it has the manual ac it is most likely euro.

I'd grab those bumpers..they look like Lorinser bits.

Manual klima was never offered in the US.

The Euros didn't have wipers on the headlights?

I like the bumpers, too.

Looking at the picture it was converted to US sealed beams. The wipers would not work with them. Must be a pre 1986 car...

Darn, I'm pretty sure it's gone now. I actually didn't take anything from it...what are some parts that Euro's have that people want? So I know what to look for the next time I see a Euro model (pretty common here in socal).

Some did, some didn't.

Listen up Dee8go: some W123 euros had headlight wipers on them. Rare and covetable in the USA. I have never even personally seen one of them.

Not even once.
