1984 500 SEC AMG

84 500 SEC AMG, Euro model, Black/Black, small bumpers, Euro headlights with vac height adjusters. The car was imported to the USA by the CEO of Budget Rent A Car when it was new.
AMG ported heads, cams (mechanical adjusters), lightened valves, ported intake manifold.
17"x8" mono AMG wheels that are powder coated black.
AMG suspension (springs, rear shocks, replaced the fronts with KONI).
AMG front/rear spoilers, side skirts, 4 spoke steering wheel (MOMO currently on the car). Speedo shows 252K. Engine was pulled at 169k to do valve job, replace valve guides, chain, tensioner, rails, misc etc as needed. Transmission was replaced at the dealer with factory unit at 195K miles. I have receipts for many odds & ends that have been replaced over the last 16+ years that I have owned it. No oil leaks. Seats are from an 89 SEC, the original seats are included. Sunroof works fine as do the seat belt presenters. R&R rear glass to repair common leak into the trunk and installed new weather strip. The new compact cat convertors helped it pass the Ca "TEST ONLY" smog test last time with super low #s.
Common issues that it has: cracked dash, headliner starting to sag at the rear (not that bad), A/C compressor seal leaks from lack of use (R-12 GM style).
In general this is a very solid car that still turns heads today and always gets compliments. I have enjoyed driving and tinkering with it for many years and it's time for someone else to take over. I am looking for an 04-06 4Runner V6 if someone wants to work a deal. This is not a Barrett Jackson trailer queen or Pebble Beach concours car but it is for its age a very solid rust-free always garaged Ca car that is very presentable. As with any older car there are always things that need attention but this car is priced right.
Drive it anywhere.
Located in Rocklin,Ca near Sacramento.
