Gorgeous Dealer Serviced 560SEL with all the Goodies!
This week Canyon State Classics brings to market one of the best documented and best kept 1986 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL Sedans on the Planet. This car is very special in several ways. It is a a low mileage car which has lived a very pampered life here in the dry Arizona desert under the careful eye of only two owners. It also had a MSRP of over $60,000 when new and is fully loaded! This was THE big boy car to own in the 80's.
This car was bought brand new at Phoenix Motor Company on August 29, 1986 by original owner Robert T Englund of Paradise Valley AZ. The car was owned by Mr Englund and his trust up until a couple of years ago when it was passed off to Mr Robert Leroy of Yuma AZ. The second owner was careful to preserve the car and also took care of many costly repair items. Dont miss out on your chance to own one of the nicest 560SEL's out there!
The following is a list of options as this 560SEL is currently equipped:
-5.6L 8-Cyl Gasoline Engine
-4 Speed Automatic Transmission
-Ice Cold A/C
-Power Door Locks
-Heated/ Power Reclining Rear Seat
-Original Leather Interior
-Rebuilt Original Becker Grand Prix Cassette
The body on the car is in very good condition and was extremely well maintained. The paint on the car is finished in its original color of Medium Gray Metallic and has a brilliant shine and not a ding to be found. All rock chips were professionally touched up by airbrush. The car has been completely inspected underneath from front to back and is solid as a rock as any well cared for garaged car should be. All chrome trim, glass, and rubber seals are in great shape. Original windshield in chip free and has original stickers on it. The car looks as nice as the day it rolled off the Mercedes lot. It just had a full detail done at a cost of over $500 so this car looks spectacular! The car is accented by the original set of correct chrome 16" wheels which look great and wrapped in almost new Good Year radials.
The interior is in very nice original condition all around. Its life long garage storage is obvious at close examination with very minimal signs of sun wear. The dash and door panels are in very nice condition with zero cracks or damage to be noted anywhere other than a few small cracks on shifter console wood and one on the dash. The gray leather seats are all in very good condition and look almost new, which shows the quality of leather used in this car (the sail panels and B pillars show signs of the vinyl shrinking). The carpets are all very nice are not worn or damaged. The car also has a very nice set of matching generic floor mats. All dials and controls function as they should, power windows and rear seat control also are fully functional. The sound system is also very nice with the original Becker Grand Prix sound system which just had the head unit professionally rebuilt. All lights, gauges switches, and accessories work as they should. The trunk compartment is very clean and does have the original jack, tools, and the spare tire and wheel. This car is all there and in excellent shape with all functions and accessories working as they should.
Mechanically, this SEL runs GREAT! I have owned nearly 30 80's and 90's era Mercedes vehicles, and this car definitely sits in the top tier all of them! The car starts right up and shifts smooth as silk. It drives as good now as the day it rolled of the lot. The 5.6L V8 is excellent. It is reliable, easy to fix, and parts are readily available. The car shows maintenance stamps from both Phoenix Motor Company and Schumacher Mercedes for over half its life! The receipts show a lot of major work done in the last couple of years that show various fluid flushes, sensors, as well as the timing chain, guides, and tensioners replaced. Recently the car received a full service including brakes, all new fluids, and filters. The suspension is very tight and feels solid even at autobahn speeds above 90mph. The car was always regularly serviced and shows it in how flawless the car drives. The car is tight and right as any low mileage car should be with no current mechanical issues. This car is 100% fully documented with EVERY service receipt going back to the pre-delivery paperwork from 1986!
The car will include all original books, huge stack of receipts, original spare, jack, tools, all original keys, as well as the CUSTOM 560SEL floor mats!
All in all, this is THE cleanest and nicest SEL that I have had the privilege of being associated with, and is surely the NICEST in the Country! It has been professionally maintained and truly loved by its previous owners. This Mercedes is a fantastic car for the price and includes every option offered in this car. Any further questions please call Jon at 480-703-2337. The car is located in Sunny Tempe, Arizona.
