Mercedes Benz 420 SEL - 1991 W126 - $5500

Car is light teal with dark teal lowers, all original, no mucking about. Pictures will be emailed upon request. - -

I never thought I would be doing this as I planned on keeping this car quite awhile. Car has 142K miles. There is NO rust under the car at all, it is all ziebarted since new. There are 2 small spots on the drivers door but they are both from nicks that happened years ago, This car does not know what snow looks like.

Anyways, I bought this car early this year. I brought it up to date on maintenance and all is finished right now, the car does not leak or burn anything and is spotless under the hood.

Fuel pressure regulator (Bosch OEM)
Cold start injector (Bosch OEM)
ALL vacuum hoses and plastic lines and silicon hoses
Plugs (Bosch W8DC) Non-Resistance (OEM)
Rear Calipers and all-round Cen-Pro Pads (Ceramic)
Rear Rotors (Raybestos Premium)
Replaced the Antenna but the new one (Uro Parts) Failed almost immediately
Refinished the wheels
All new Belts
All new air distribution hoses under hood
Bled all brakes and put in DOT 5.1 Blue Synthetic Mercedes fluid
Removed Catalytic converter and smog pump (Very good jobs) which reduce fuel consumption and increase power slightly (15 HP more than standard)
Air Filter (Wix)
Fuel Filter (Wix)
Transmission Fluid and Filter (Mobil 1 synthetic ATF and Wix Filter)
Rear differential fluid done (Lucas)
Power steering fluid flushed (Mercedes Fluid)
New blades on headlamps and windscreen (Michelin)
Battery (Walmart, but it is the right size and has 2 year free replacement from last week)
Over Voltage protection relay
All fuses replaced with updated brass and copper
Radiator (BEHR)
Hoses (Gates)

This car has always ran 10-40 Synthetic Mobil 1 with a Wix filter every 3,000 miles on the dot

Keep in mind that I have all the receipts for all parts replaced by myself.

I have the original spare (Never on the ground), complete Tool kit, Medical kit, owners manuals, leather case, window sticker (Florida car), Full Service History, etc...

All electronics work, A/C is still R-12 and blows ice cold (just topped up), paint is fantastic with minor flaws but no fading or crazing.

This is the full disclosure bit and this is everything,
Hail, light
Leather on b pillars has pulled out of the holes, I re-glued them, and it held for 3 months (will need better interior glue)
There are a few small nicks and 2 small rust spots previously mentioned
Shift console wood lacquer has cracked per usual
Crappy antenna is stuck up

One other piece, The car recently has gotten a fuel pressure leakdown problem when sitting. I have ordered the parts and will be installing them in the next few days. Parts total is $170. Once I have fixed this there will be no mechanical issues. Parts I will be replacing are (coolant temperature sensor, fuel accumulator, and fuel pump check valves)

I am pretty firm on the price but will work with somebody reasonable.

If you are interested then give me a call at 651 757 5091
