FS: 1987 560SEL Super Clean! Highly maintained!

For Sale : 1987 560SEL


I recently purchased a 560SEL. It is an awesome car that was owned by my Indie Mechanic's Daughter and of course expertly maintained.

I though my girlfriend would like driving it, but she's 5'2" so its a little big for her.

Here is some detail and I will get some pix:

1987 560SEL
Light Blue on Blue
Timing Chain, Valve Guides, Tensioner etc already done
Brand New OEM rear accumulators and hydraulic lines
New front end "truck rods"
Excellent original paint - always garaged
Brand New 8 Hole Wheels with Brand New Kuhmo tires and an alignment
New Coverlay dashpad (the blue pads always crack)
Blaupunkt CD - I do not have the becker

Everything works, even the clock. This is a fine specimen drives great and needs nothing. The only minor probelm is the smog pumps whines for about 1 min. after startup. Then it gets quiet. It passes emmisions with no problem. Other than that this is a beautiful car.

I am asking $5500. The vehicle is located in Chicago.

Thanks for looking.

1987 560 SEL For Sale


Thanks for your interest in my 560 SEL.

Here are some answers to your questions:

A/C has been converted to 134A and it is cold.

The paint is all original on this car.

There were two Minor spots of rust above on the front quarter panels where the bumper meets the steel. They were sanded down, primed and touched up.

Other than that the car is rust free, always garaged.

Everything works with the expection of the cruise.
The drivers seat could use a new spring. It is still supportive, but you can hear the spring squeak when you get in/out.

The car has had the whole top half rebuild and timing chain. It had a minor oil leak subsequent to that, but my mechanic assures me that he has solved that. He has it right now and is doing the rear hydraulic work. Not mentioned in the original post is a new self leveling controller. The hydraulic lines has seized to the old one! The rebuild + the hydraulic work is almost $4,000. Add new wheels, tires, track rods, alignment and you can see what a great value this car is.

Please feel free to ask any questions. I can provide more pictures when I pick her up from the shop later this week.
