1966 Mercedes-Benz 250SE 4spd Start Up, Engine, and In Depth Tour
In this video I give a full in depth tour of a 1966 Mercedes Benz 250SE. It
has a 2.5L L6 engine with a 4 spd manual transmission. I take viewers on a
close look through the interior and exterior of this car while showing
details, over viewing of features, and noting unique styling cues to the
vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details of it, start it up
and see how it sounds under acceleration. A thorough tour/review of this
car designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
Thanks to jrosa1282 for this additional info on the history of this great
car! The 250SE was a new offering from M-B for 1966, and was the first of
what was known as the "New Generation" body/chassis, also known as the
W108. This car would later spawn the classic 280SE 4.5 and 300SEL 6.3
sedans. In '66, a new 250SE retailed for about $6,550. In comparison, a new
Chevy Corvair started at around $2,140, and an Austin-Healey Sprite cost
$1,995. So these Benzes were not cheap in the day.
(Goose Creek Auto Werks) The 250 SE was first introduced in 1965 and was
built through 1968. It has independent front and rear suspension with four
wheel power assist disc brakes. The engine is a straight 6 cylinder 2.5
liter with overhead cam and fuel injection. Power output is 170 hp at
5,600 revolutions per minute.
This vehicle has about 70k on a factory short block and valve job. This
Auto is black on black and has an older restoration job. The front and
rear windshield weather strips were replaced then as were all the door
weather strips and window channel. The head liner was replaced wih a
factory OE kit.
The seats and woodwork need repair. Recent repairs include a new water
pump, fuel gauge sending unit and OE trunk mat. The rear brake calipers
have been rebuilt with new disc and pads, and new pads on the front brakes.
This is a classic Mercedes Benz, in design and style.

Smart CDI -29C cold start
8th December, 2009. Novosibirsk, Russia. Cranks pretty good, but baaaarely
starts... Smart fortwo says "leave me alone, dude". ABS and ESP freezed,
which is why there's a warning light on the dash. The steering is very hard
at the beginning due to freezed suspension. I used Liqui Moly diesel
antigel, whis is the best in my oppinion, although a bit pricey.

Great. Likely because im a HUGE fan of Trans Ams and have over 40 still i
just cant get enough of the honeycomb wheels. These V8 Cars are the Best
road and ervice cars made and seem to just run forever. I have seen this
setup with over 500,000 miles Many times.

Classic Youngtimer http://www.1ownercarguy.com This is a very cool car.
Usually I like cars with really low miles but this car is sol cool because
it has 312,000 original miles on it and runs like a newer car. This is only
a 1 Owner Car and yes the miles are actual. The previous owner drove the
car back and fourth from Canada to California. You would never guess the
miles by looking at the car. The factory baby blue paint is in great shape
and has a very nice shine to it. The factory white vogue top looks great on
the car and is in about as good of shape as you will find. The body is
straight as can be and the paint is original. It has the 6.6L 400 engine
that fires right up and runs great. It has been rebuilt along with many
other things on the car. I talked to the mechanics that worked on the car
and they remembered the guy and how good he took care of his car and really
liked it. You would have to really like a car to put that many miles on it.
The car feels and handles like a newer car and just floats down the road.
The interior is in mint condition along with the rest of the car. Only the
drivers seat shows minimal wear. It looks like he was the only one that
made the trips because none of the other seats look like they hardly ever
got sat in. Everything about this car is just clean as can be. You won't
find another car like this.

This one pack Ford's old 4.6L SOHC V8 making only 224 HP which is pumped to
the Rear wheels through a 4 speed auto.
Pretty much the most old school sedan that you can get & they are one of
the toughest full-size sedans that you can get. But don't expect
sophisticated handling, top notch interior quality or brisk acceleration.
2000 Mercury Grand Marquis GS 4.6 V8 55xxx Miles
I thought I'd show you the new daily driver that we picked up to replace
the Cougar. I'm still going to repair the Cougar, but I didn't want to
count on it as daily transportation. This 2000 Mercury Grand Marquis is in
really excellent shape for it's age. It's powered by the 4.6 SOHC V8 and
only has about 55xxx actual miles. I know it's not the most interesting car
in the world, but it should be a comfortable and reliable one. Thanks for
watching and commenting, I appreciate it!

2009 Mercury Grand Marquis Road Test
2009 Mercury Grand Marquis LS
Engine: 4.6 liter SOHC V8 (224 horsepower/275 ft. lbs. of
Transmission: 4-speed automatic w/OD
Rear Wheel Drive
City/Highway MPG: 15/23
This is a full road test of my mom's 2009 Mercury Grand Marquis, to show
how it performs in different situations, and to identify any problems that
may exist. I would normally do this after having the car in the shop for
repairs, but in this case I am driving the car around just to get a better
idea of how it feels on the road.
I drove it for about 2 hours and came away very impressed. It is
comfortable, refined, solid, and very agile. With only 224 horsepower, one would think
that it's underpowered compared to its V6 competitors. It's not. The
torquey V8 will pin you to your seat when gunned from a dead stop, and once
you're up to speed, there is always plenty of power in reserve. The big V8
has a deep, burly muscle car sound when revved, but at low RPMs it is muted
and unobtrusive in the cabin. The 4 speed automatic isn't much of a
handicap with the V8's torque curve, although it prefers not to downshift
into 1st or 2nd unless you mash the pedal to the floor. If you drive with a
light foot, and keep RPMs below 2000, you can easily attain 20+ mpg in
everyday driving situations. On the highway, the car is very efficient, due
to its tall overdrive gear that keeps the RPMs low.
The four wheel ABS disc brakes provide adequate stopping power, with
reasonably good pedal feel. Stopping distance is short in an emergency,
although the front end dives toward the ground.
The Marquis handles very well for a big car, even though it is not equipped
with the Handling Package (this option was discontinued around 2007). In
hard cornering, body roll is minimal and the Michelin tires provide plenty
of grip. The rack and pinion steering setup leaves feel somewhat numb, but
it's also pleasantly light and very accurate (especially on the highway).
Mercury obviously wanted to leave some "slop" in the steering, so the old
folks won't think they're driving a Ferrari :) If you must throw the car
around, it is safe and predictable, and can be quite fun for a boat.
Comfort is where the car really shines. The ride is very smooth, and gives
you the feeling of "floating" over bumps. This is great on the highway,
where little road imperfections are ironed out, but not so good on bumpy
back roads. If you hit potholes or man hole covers, the car pogos up and
down a couple times before settling. I enjoy this type of ride, but many
people do not. Inside, the car is very quiet, and road noise is minimal.
The leather bench seats are supremely comfortable and roomy, even after a
couple of hours.
Overall I am really pleased with how the car drives, and it just happens to
be a car I would consider buying used.
