1983 Mercedes-Benz 500-Series W126 AMG
One of the very few authentic pre-merger AMGs in the USA featuring an astonishingly low 81k original miles. This car was imported in 1983 by it's original owner along with another armored version of the W126 500SEL making it a true grey market euro spec car. This 1983 Mercedes 500 SEL AMG features the full AMG spec kit including front and rear bumpers, ide skirts, enta wheels, aint, nd steering wheel. The european spec engine is more powerful than it's US spec counterpart. Other AMG specific mods include upgraded cams, rakes, uspension, nd exhaust. I get constant compliments when driving this car and you'll never see another one on the road. The car has always been garage kept and meticulously maintained. Mechanically excellent. Recent services include fresh oil and filter change, ew high flow cats, ew brake pads, nd a new fuel filter and relay. The AC was also recently serviced and blows ice cold and additionally has been converted to R134. The heat works perfectly as well. Imperfections include a crack in the middle of the dash and a tear on the driver side front seat. Both aesthetic and easily repairable. There are some minor rock chips as expected for a car of this age however, here is absolutely no rust anywhere on the entire car and the car has never been involved in any type of accident. The head unit has also been tastefully updated to allow for bluetooth, SB, nd CD playing capabilities and two new front door speakers while still maintaining the OEM look. This car was built to last. Strong engine and smooth transmission. I wouldn't hesitate to drive this car anywhere. This is the opportunity to own an extremely rare piece of history and true german muscle. Since this 500SEL AMG is a grey market euro spec car the VIN has been issued in the states to reflect a US VIN format. The VIN is WDB12603712028407. I have the title in hand free and clear. I also have all of the original owner's manuals and the original registration for the car dating back to 1983 when it was first imported. I am a Mercedes enthusiast and have gone to great lengths to acquire and maintain my cars. This car is 100% AMG authentic and genuine and all original since being built.
