I am selling my 420SEC which I bought last year from a well respected classic Mercedes specialist. I intended it to be a long-term keeper, hence trying to find a really nice one, but I have just un-expectidly aquired a local 560SEC, so need to sell.
It just passed its mot a month ago with no advisories.
This car is in really great condition, with an over-flowing service book and plenty of old receipts. When I bought it from the dealer a year ago they did an oil service, I then replaced all the ignition items with proper bosch parts, also a few other details like a brand new genuine grille from the main dealer.
The typical problem areas like under the rear screen have been taken care of by the previous owner, all bumper chromes perfect and the bodywork is really excellent, no rust, but a little filler in the passenger front wing that I can see. Being the non-metalic blue it is easy to rectify paint if you so wish.
Alloys and tyres are also in excellent condition, as is the interior. The usual spots of drivers bolster and headlining looking really good indeed.
It is very, very smooth and quiet to drive. I have always kept it under cover during my ownership, and it looks like the previous owners have probably done the same.
Only things I can see that need doing are no displayed temp on the outside temp display, I tried a new display so I think it must be the sensor. And the bushes on the end of the anti-roll bar on the passenger side squeak, they are very cheap from the main dealer, I was intending to do it after the MOT, then got distracted by the 560.
The reason I bought this last year is I really wanted an SEC and the prices are getting silly, and the cheap ones not worth buying.
I have more pics and happy to chat to anyone thats interested, and of course happy to take anyone out on a test drive.
1989 420 SL great condition in white with wonderful burgundy leather interior.
It has 58k on the clock and 1 previous family owner of 3 before I pearches the car.
It gets a lot attention where ever.....
Rare and striking in white, this very presentable 1986 W126 Mercedes is a nice example of the model range and benefits from having the sought after V8 engine. Having spent the best part of 8 years.....
