FS: 1990 560SEL black/black

For sale.

Make an offer. Daily driver but never took care of title. Not sure of title laws out of state, but basically a dirt cheap ride with most of the hard part taken care of; it'll just have to be bonded or something to register. I shifted over to full time cycling, this car only gets driven in the rain/long distances/to carry stuff. It's very reliable, but again I never got it registered, so it will come with the original signed title and the original bill of sale. Lost interest/heart after the build.

146949 miles

-Pads are shot. Drivable, but need replaced
-High pressure rear SLS hose shot. Brand new replacement in trunk. Cannot guarantee SLS pump, as leak was prevalent when I bought the car
-Shifter bushings
-Climate control unit inconsistent
-Headrests on both seats don't move (motors turn)
-Cigarette lighter light out
-Driver sunshade bushing needs replaced
-Wired for a standard DIN type sound system and stripped of all original Becker components. Also has provisions for 2 amplifiers (car comes without system)

Mechanically the car is solid. The engine runs clean and doesn't burn oil, but it does have fast idle in P/N (800-1000rpm). Here's what I've done to the motor:
-Timing chain
-All upper guides (oe)
-Chain tensioner (oe)
-Cam sprockets
-Cam oilers
-Fuel distributor
-A few injectors
-Plugs (non resistor Champions)
-Wires (Karlyn? I'll need to dbl check)
-Injector seals, insulators
-All Vacuum hoses
-Throttle position switch
-Air flow meter boot
-Transmission cooler lines
-Transmission filter
-Trans pan gasket
-2 vacuum actuators
-2 check valves
-Valve cover gaskets
-Fan clutch
-Brand new battery
-Distributor cap/rotor

All cylinders within spec on dry/wet compression tests. Motor runs 15W20 Royal Purple, Trans has Trick Shift. All the windows/sunroof/central locking/power seats minus headrests/heat warmers/window switches/mirror adjustment/sunshade lamps/courtesy lights/warning buzzer/rear defrost/recirc/fanfare horns/cruise control/air conditioning (non converted, R-12)/heating/rear recline/rear seat warmer work. Fader has been bypassed and does not work with the new wiring.

I've decided to move to NY and this needs to go to help fund my trip. Looking for $2K. Let me know if interested, will assist in shipping, will provide proof of original title/BOS if seriously interested, will provide video of car starting/running/driving if seriously interested.
