Description:

1987 Mercedes-Benz S-Class 560 SEL

I have owned this car about 2 and a half years. I drove it daily for about 2 and then sparingly. I have enjoyed driving and maintaining it during that time. It is very reliable and a real joy to experience what is widely considered the epitome of Mercedes engineering, luxury, and ride.
Pros: Replaced timing chains and guides at 150000 miles (when I bought it). Revived rear seat reclining mechanism, automatic antenna, replaced front flex disc, front wheel bearings, replaced rear brake discs, master cylinder seals, adjusted rear suspension height (hydraulic rear suspension in great shape), replaced AC dryer and temp sensor (AC blows cold), regular oil changes, refinished center console wood, other minor repairs I'm not thinking of. I have records for all the work done by myself and my local independent Benz specialist. I have sparse records for before that. According to the previous owner, I am the fourth owner. The car is in amazing NO RUST condition and must have been garaged its entire life and not used in the winter. There are only minor dings and scratches except as shown on the rear bumber (scrape). There are minor cracks in some of the interior wood. No history of accidents.
Cons: Original windshield has tiny pits but they show only in certain light conditions, usually not an issue. The tires are nearly at the end of their tread life. The AC blows cold but occaisionally will blow warm air for a few seconds, barely noticeable.
This is a NO RESERVE auction, your opportunity to grab a true automotive icon for a very reasonable price.
