This is my beautiful 420SEL
It is a 1987 that I purchased from the original owner.
I wish it wasn't so but it is for sale. I need the money right now more than the car.
It has 260,000plus miles on it, but as most of you know that is just the breaking in period for these amazing engines!
In the last year I have had it painted gloss black metallic, had the leather inside restored including new leather on front seats, installed new JVC cd/mp3 stereo with 12" subwoofer, new catalytic converter (to pass smog last year), new distributor, new rotor, new plugs and wires, new Michelin tires,new idle control valve, new headlight control relay, new window tint, new leather steering wheel wrap, new wood shift knob, new head lights, new tail lights, new drilled and slotted brake drums and non metallic pads, and more and more...
Here is where trouble comes into paradise.
The climate controls don't work, the sunroof doesn't open, the automatic transmission needs to be flushed and serviced (shifts hard), it just began idling high (around 1500-2000RPM), the reverse lights don't work, and the power review mirror doesn't work.
I have been diligent about oil change, air pressure, high quality fuel, and car washes. This car needs someone with more mechanical ability to fine tune the engine, or the funds to have someone else do it.
I can't afford to fix it up mechanically. Once someone does, they will have a real treasure. Take a look at the pictures and please ask if you have any questions.
