1990 Mercedes-Benz 400-Series

This S-Class sedan continues to have the reputation of being the best-selling, most successful, S-Class model of all time. Mercedes-Benz introduced many new, exciting features on this S-Class, many of which are now standard equipment on modern vehicles. This 420SEL features a crumple-zone enabled chassis: the industry’s first, and also a novel 5 mph spring-loaded, front-facing bumper that will absorb energy and prevent the vehicle from sustaining damage in low impact, low-speed collisions. Among other safety features, this S-Class introduces seatbelts for all seats, antilock brakes, a driver’s seat airbag, and a passenger’s seat airbag.

The V8 engine in this car runs smoothly and is very quiet. The engine is quick to accelerate and is able to easily maintain highway speeds, emphasizing its role as a long-distance comfort vehicle.

The exterior features a special edition Midnight-Blue paint, which is original from the manufacturer, with original chrome accents surrounding the windows and door handles.

The vehicle’s interior is lined with the original light beige palomino leather and shows some natural signs of wear. Regardless, the seats look great and are incredibly spacious and comfortable, allowing for a comfortable, relaxed drive position. Being an S-Class, headroom and knee room in the rear seats is in abundance, and there is even more space in the front seats. In keeping with the large dimensions, the trunk is equally enormous and features a practical, rectangular shaped opening that makes loading and unloading the space easier and more efficient.

The electrics in this car are all functioning and the air conditioning has just been recharged. The systems and controls are easy to operate and understand. The car comes with its rare original radio and cassette player, which can easily be adapted with a cassette jack to accept modern iPod/iPhone and digital media input.

Side view mirrors are heated for maximum visibility in fog and icy conditions. The vehicle has a sunroof, central locking system, new comprehensive Mercedes-Benz first-aid kit, and full-sized spare tire. This 420SEL features high-profile tires, which are more resistant to potholes and road hazards. Similarly, they also absorb more energy and road imperfections, creating a smoother, less jarring ride. Consequently, the ride quality is excellent, a feature unique to the S-Class.

This vehicle is being sold as-is.
