The mileage on the vehicle now is 122,700 but will increase slightly as the car is in daily use. as you can see above the car has been loved and cherished unlike a lot of other sec's which have been abandoned and laid up for years whereas this particular car has been in continous use and has been enjoyed on the roads hence why it is in such well order. this car has had only 3 owners from 1988 till 2019 which is 31 years and then the previous owner took ownership and had kept the car for a year but due to needing the indoor space he offered it to the market and that is when i took ownership of this beautiful car. the car comes with the standard specification that you get with an sec such as climate control, electric sunroof, electric windows, 4 speed automatic gearbox, electric adjustable steering column, electric mirror, dual zone climate, electric seats etc. since my ownership from october 2019 i have covered 2500 miles in the car using it as my daily driver and have covered two long motorway journeys of 300 miles and 450 miles which was an absolute pleasure. Driving this car is a privilege and you begin to understand why this car was so expensive in its day and why now it is a car to have for every enthusiast. If you are a fan of the mercedes benz brand then you have to experience an sec if you havent and believe me you would be in for a treat. The power output is immense and totally suprises you. The 420 sec was the rarest of all sec's having produced lot less numbers compared to the others which is what makes this unique. the car comes with an mot till 10th october 2020 which showed no advisories. The vehicle has recently had a major service so the next service will only need a oil service as all the major parts have been replaced. the common areas notorious for sec's to go wrong is the rear bulkhead below the rear screen which rusts terribly but rest assured on my car it is immaculate as you can see in the images. The bodywork is also very nice as you can see (apart from a small bubble starting to show on the left rear arch which you need to go up real close to notice) the centre wood veneer piece would need refurbing or replacing as shows a few marks. the sec drives extremely well with a very strong engine + gearbox and kicks down rather well with plenty of power. If you were wanting to drive this car for 1000 miles in a day you could use this and the smile would not go away. It is a delight to be behind the wheel. Since acquiring the car i have noticed a slight shake now and again when parked up but as soon as i pull away its gone but this has been there since i bought it and has made no difference to the car. i believe my sec is a lovely example which can be thoroughly enjoyed by the next owner as i have absolutely loved owning this car as it was a dream for me when growing up. I went to see 3 sec mercs before finally opting to go for this one as the others were no where near as nice as this. This one ticked all the boxes for me from the colour combination, the expensive ronal wheels, to the extensive service history record and most importantly condition and low ownership. the v5c logbook is in my name and address and that is where viewing will take place.
