Beautiful 1991 560SEL for sale Atlanta
Hi there- well just as I finish all of my projects on both Mercedes the wife wants a new TDI diesel so we took advantage of Memorial day sale incentives. Hello big car note! As a result I am selling both of my Mercedes- one gas (1991 560 SEL) and one diesel (1991 300D). Info on the 560SEL:
Current mileage 77,300, everything works (even the cruise control!). A very nice clean car with shiny paint, like new interior. No dash cracks.
I've had it for 2 years and have done quite a bit of work to make it even nicer. It is in immaculate shape, white exterior, gray leather interior with new (6 months ago) floor mats. I've driven it from Atlanta to south Florida twice and would not hesitate to hop in and drive across the US in it. Its given us about 10,000 trouble free miles and is such a nice riding car on the highway. I checked the Carfax when we first bought it and it was clean with no damage history- I have kept it the same, and spent about $5000 on mainly mechanical restoration in the time owned. No damage or rust on car. (It does have tiny door dings in a few places but nothing major).
Completely replaced every part of front suspension- New heavy duty Bilstein front shocks, new rear accumulators, new high pressure (SLS) hose, new tie rods, "dogbones"- suspension bearing brackets, upper control arms, balljoints, steering dampener, pittman arm bushings.
All fluids flushed and replaced, I've been using Brad Penn 20W/50 semi-synthetic oil. Mobil One ATF in transmission, Mobil synthetic diff. oil. When I first bought it I had Jono of Blue Ridge MB Atlanta replace the timing chain, tensioners and followers, as preventative maintenance- should be good for another 100K or 20 years. I footed the expensive bill for that job but its a must do on these cars.
New spark plugs, rotor cap and fuel relay. New fuel filter. New motor mounts (Lemforder/OEM not Febi junk).
Car still using R-12 freon and it works well- previous owner replaced compressor at some point so its not the old original.
New radiator, new belts and hoses, thermostat. New Akebono Euro-ceramic brake pads all around. Front rotors replaced by previous owner. Dash is nice and not cracked, seats show no wear, drivers side seat has been restuffed and is is nice.
New flex discs in drivetrain. Alignment done by Gran Turismo East of Atlanta which is my opinion the best shop in the area where all the die hard car nuts go for tires and suspension work. Tires are Altimax HP with about 4k on them (comparable to the Michelin MXV4).
Factory radio installed, speakers work fine but are probably original. Bosch Euro headlights.
This car essentially needs nothing except a new home. I think I would keep it forever if it was a diesel. I really LOVE it but don't need it anymore and want it to go to an enthusiast. I'll take photos and will be happy to forward to interested parties.
Located in Atlanta suburbs, asking $7500 obo. Thanks! Rick
