Description:

1986 Mercedes-Benz 500-Series

This '86 560SEL is in remarkable shape for its age and runs very well and still wears its original paint and interior. Car comes with original service booklet with coupons torn out up to 90k, with the mileage at 85,812 as of 12/8/1993. As of now, the mileage is currently 114,610. According to the previous owner, both fuel pumps were replaced, and a new battery was installed in 2015. Since I have owned the car the following work has been done:
New Falken Sincera tires (1/23/16, @108,640)
New Bosch Electro-Hydraulic-Actuator
Replaced all intake gaskets, injector seals, new spark plugs, new coolant temperature sensor, injectors tested, ignition timing adjusted (3/15/16, @108,914)
Replaced climate control module
Replaced rear brake pads
Recent oil change, with factory MB filter (3/22/17, @114,020)
New air intake hoses
All fuses replaced with correct copper fuses
New mono-valve (not yet installed)
As a 31-year old car, this 560SEL is in excellent condition but does have a few imperfections. To the best of my knowledge the following things on the car do not work: The A/C does not work. Before being purchased by the previous owners, the car was driven very infrequently and as a result, mice chewed the soft line to the A/C condenser and as a result the A/C is not currently working. The ABS is not working because the wiring going to the wheel sensors for the ABS was damaged. The passenger side wires were repaired and the ABS began working then stopped. The system is good, but I believe the driver side wires need repair now. The driver side rear window needs a new regulator, the power antenna does not work, and the passenger side power mirror does not work, besides that, everything else on the car works. All the power seats work, including the headrests and all the seat heaters work. The climate control module has been replaced with an original unit, the heater and blower work, as well as the climate control cabin sensor and fan. The sunroof works, all the power locks work, including the trunk, and all the gauges work except for the clock. The car does have the normal dings and dents that come with a car of this age, and there is a spot on the passenger side of the hood where the clear coat is beginning to fade. The interior is in excellent shape with minor wear, the passenger side rear seat has one rip but the interior is intact otherwise.
