FS: 1986 Mercedes-Benz 420SEL, VERY Nice in & out!! (South FL)
SOLD on 4/25/08: 1986 Mercedes-Benz 420SEL - mechanically excellent and cosmetically beautiful... drive it anywhere!
Excellent condition in & out; strong engine runs great; transmission shifts smoothly, nice quiet and smooth ride; no leaks; no abnormal noises; maintained regularly - no major issues whatsoever!
Must see - the blue leather (option code 272) interior is 99.9% MINT with no cracks or rips including all the wood; headliner is mint; carpets are nice; non-smoker; all door panels are perfect; rear parcel tray is in excellent shape; and the dashboard is 100% mint!
The exterior is also VERY nice - all original Astral Silver (paint code 735) glossy paint and all body panels are in nice & straight condition with NO rust anywhere from top to bottom & front to back! This car defines 100% rust free! All the floorpans and rocker panels and quarter panels are in excellent solid shape; All the drains were never clogged-up, and this car was never used during the winter months while in NJ. Even the weatherstripping and window glazing are still in excellent non-brittle condition! All glass are fine with no delamination or fading; Overall, this nice 420SEL has just minor road wear for its vintage.
Clean carfax & title in hand; 91k original miles; 1-owner; no accidents ever; this is straight and clean all throughout for its age.
Cold A/C; Becker stereo; Power front seats including headrests plus 2 memory settings; power sunroof & windows, power antenna, good working vacuum-activated door locks; rear passengers even get individual ashtrays with lighter; also comes with all original keys and books & manuals w/ owner's data plate; complete original tool kit and first aid kit too!
Complete service & maintenance receipts and detailed documentation for over 20 years... Records records records galore!
This was purchased new at Ray Catena Mercedes-Benz in NJ and was always garaged (heated) since new!
From new to present time - it has been stored during fall/winter and only driven over the spring/summer but maintained continuously!
This is a very nice and very clean S-class for you to enjoy and cherish! This beauty continues to shine in the warm climates of the sunshine state.
My fair asking price is only $6500. Contact me if interested, and include your phone number please.
I also have plenty of photos upon request... Thanks.
