You are bidding on an unbelievable 1989 Mercedes Benz 560SEC with the original window sticker and records.
California car all it's life and one owner for 27 years.
A little bit about the history of this vehicle.
I have records going back to 2009, when $2,800 was spent on the vehicle. It had 95,218 miles. Cam cover gasket, front brakes, motor mounts (front), replace drive belts, cooling system service, transmission service, receiver drier for a/c, etc.
The original owner died on 3/30/2002 and his wife kept and drove the car. He was very successful businessman and real estate developer in Newport Beach for decades. When she was unable to drive, she gave the car to her 50+ year old son, who rarely drove it.
He sold it to the second owner in early 2015 and he spent all of 2015 and part of 2016 painting and restoring the vehicle. He lost his warehouse space and is selling his collection and buying 1-2 very high end ($500,000+) vehicles.
I purchased the vehicle from him in September, 2016 and have put 600 miles on it.
In speaking with the original owners son, a stack of records were given to the second owner, but all he gave me were records since 2009. I'm still trying to get the remaining records from him.
The vehicle was repainted at a cost of $7,500 and had 104,881 miles on it during the one year restoration.
The vehicle was rust free and, according to the body shop owner, is a no hit, no damage vehicle that spent its entire life in California. Paint, chrome, brightwork, are all either OEM or polished to new condition. New tires, wheels, front windshield, headlamps, corner lights, tail lights are all OEM factory new.
The vehicle has 105,525 on it now.
I bought this in September, 2016 and have put 600 miles on it. No issues and drives like a dream. Air blows ice cold and everything works except the cruise control. I purchased another speed control unit but haven't put it on.
I have two other Mercedes and retired at the end of 2016. We're trying to simplify our lives and my wife says one has to go. As much as I hate it, I'm selling this beauty. You will never, and I mean never, find another like this.
If you are in the market for a Mercedes 560 SEC then this is the car for you. There simply can't be very many 560 SEC's in better condition than this.
This is a 1989 model, that shares all of the features with the 1990 and 1991 models, not the older, less desirable models from 1986 to 1988.
It is one of the most desirable and hard to find color combination with white exterior and beautiful light gray interior.
When the car was purchased it was all in original condition. There was replacement of all headlights, corner lights, taillights with all OEM new parts. While these are very expensive, this was a must due to minor rock chips.
All the emblems are brand new. All the stainless steel trim has been professionally polished or replaced with OEM, including all trim around the windows.
Tires are brand new Michelin's with new chromed factory wheels.
Paint is new and is in perfect shape with no door dings, rock chips, damage, etc. $7,500.
Electronics are also perfect and everything works as they are supposed to.
The vehicle was completely serviced so there is no reason why you can't drive this car across the country!!
I kept this vehicle in a heated climate controlled garage all winter and it did not leak a drop of oil! There are no fluid leaks, oil leaks, absolutely no smoke or funny noises.
The car shifts perfectly, drives straight as an arrow.
Every single thing works on this vehicle!
I'm describing this vehicle accurately, but welcome any personal review or test drive. Should you wish, and at your cost, I'll be glad to take the vehicle to a Mercedes Benz dealer and have them provide you with an analysis of this beauty. You will appreciate the value and quality of this rare Mercedes.
You could spend over $30,000.00 finding a 560SEC with perhaps 30,000 miles, but I can guarantee you it will not be cleaner or in better condition than this.
Thanks & good luck.
Low Reserve for this beauty, so bid to own.
PayPal will be accepted for $1,000 only with balance upon pickup or prior to shipment of vehicle.
Yes - this vehicle listed at $81,620 in 1989!!
This was truly the flagship of Mercedes!
All chrome and brightwork was taken to a shop, polished and replaced as necessary.
Tires are brand new Michelin's and newly chromed wheels in perfect condition.
All carpets were removed and professionally cleaned and are in fabulous condition with no tears, holes or damage.
Take a look at the wood. It is virtually perfect. No peeling, cracking or damage. You don't find wood in this condition on these cars.
You will see that on almost all 560SEC's, the wood is peeling, cracked or in poor condition. Not here. All wood is like factory new! It is in marvelous condition.
I've owned four of these SEC's and this is the only one that the seat belt offering arm actually works. These are almost always broken. Not here! They work like a champ!!
Factory manuals, books, etc., absolutely!!
Below are my two other vehicles. An SL550 and GL 550.
As I noted previously, I've been a Mercedes "nut" for 35 years. Below was my fleet in 1996, which included a 1971 Mercedes 280SE 3.5 Convertible (boy, do I wish I still had that one), a 1988 Mercedes 560SEC, a 1966 Mercedes Grand 600, and a 1995 Mercedes 500SEL.
Don't let the mileage of 105k alarm you. Keep in mind that this was a California one family owner for 28 years and was always maintained. Over the winter, it did not leak a drop of oil.
The original windshield had been repaired from a rock chip. However, the resin came out and I purchased a brand new windshield and mirror just a few weeks ago.
Brand New Tires!!
$2,799.91 in Service work - Receipt from original owner - 2009
Yes - This is the original registration temporary tag and radio instructions!!
