FS: Incredibly nice 1987 560SEC, 49K orig mi, time capsule

This one is the real deal.

1987 560SEC, 904 nautical blue over navy leather. 49K original documented miles. Spent 22 years in California with one owner, then one year in Florida. Never seen a winter except for being parked at my house in PA for last couple of months.

Cosmetic condition is outstanding, even in the areas SEC's are known for being weak.

Exterior: Body panels are all original with VIN# stickers in place. Paint is excellent, glossy and smooth. No dings, dents, or scuffs. Glass, chrome, rubber, trim all excellent. OEM wheels are chromed and in excellent condition with no pitting or peeling.

This car has NONE of the usual weak areas, like rear glass delamination, oxidized chrome trim, moisture in trunk/wheelwells, faded headlight bezels; all of these items and more are excellent.

Interior: All original (no re-dyeing, replacement leather, etc) and excellent. Seats are firm. Headliner is good and not ballooning. Wood very strong; clear and not faded. Carpets, door panels, rear parcel shelf, dash all original and excellent. Even the instrument cluster needles are still bright orange.

Electrically: Car is 100% and needs nothing, down to the Becker radio and factory power antenna. All lights work, seat belt presenters work, and more.

Mechanically: Also 100%. Fires instantly, idles perfectly, makes great power to redline. Trans is smooth, kickdown switch works, no delay going into reverse, no issues of any kind. No leaks, no problems, no noises. Ride is smooth, no sharp thunks, SLS working properly. Brakes excellent, steering box has no play. No head gasket or valve cover leaks.

Misc: Original spare/jack/tools in place and spare has never been on the ground. All books, two keys, service records, even new and unused leather MB key fobs.

This is a mint car all around, and there's nothing to do except drive. It will be detailed, with new mats, fresh oil and filter, and fully inspected with any issues addressed.

Asking price is $18,450, but I can do significantly better for a BW forum member. Email me at brucem105@comcast.net, or call 856-912-2600.
