SWB Vs. LWB $$$

Found this kinda strange, I purchased a magizine and while I was looking up the S320-1997 I noticed that the swb was $1300.00 more than the lwb, I would of thought that the LWB was more, any ideas on why it's less epensive ???

Don't know the answer. . .maybe its a nicer car. . .lower mileage, etc. But......which designation (W or V) applies to the SWB car? I've seen ads for 320V swb and 320W swb. . .they both can't be right.

Personally. . .I'd choose the SWB. Just looks better to my eye.

"W" is the short wheelbase and "V" is the long wheelbase.......brand new I think the long wheelbase was about 3K .I think it had some standard features that the short did not,,,,such as headlight washers.........seems that most people opted for the long wheelbase version in the I would imagine the long wheelbase should be more expensive as a used car
