Arrow FS: MB S500 v8 W140 (in South Africa - Johannesburg ONLY)

THIS CAR IS BEING SOLD ONLY IN SOUTH AFRICA (Johannesburg), no shipping, Local sale only.

This advert has been listed on local media platforms, but for good measure I decided to also post it up here on the forum.

Mercedes Benz S500 - R58 000 neg. ($9000) (Value over R73 000)

Price reduced, MUST SELL ASAP..

(W140) V8 5.0l SWB 1995
Full house!! Good over all condition. "German Spec"
Automatic four speed "tip tronic style" transmission. (722.3)
280 000km
Private sale.

This is the "Post Facelift" flagship model, which was produced from 1995 - 1999. (Only 21 945 units of the SWB S500`s were made world wide, most W140 S500`s were built on LWB chassis throughout 91 -99)
This particular vehicle was assembled in Germany and imported to South Africa . The only upgrades on this vehicle were the W203 Rims, and the JVC front loader. The rest of the car is left "German Spec"

11 Speaker Bose sound system with multi-channel amp in trunk running off a JVC MP3 + Aux CD front loader, Really great crystal clear sound system! iPod / Cellphones can be connected through the Aux jack
16" W203 Rims - Spotless, not a scratch, all four rims in brand new condition!
Air conditioner, (front and rear)
Lumbar support in front seats,
Rear ashtrays x 2 with lighters, (+ 1 ashtray with lighter in front)
Front and Rear vanity mirrors with lights,
Convenience lights on all four doors for illuminated entry / exit of vehicle.
Catalytic converters deleted by factory. (Means you can put either "Leaded" or "Un-leaded fuel", it’s up to you.)

Transmission rebuilt ONLY 200km ago, works like new! Alll gears + reverse very smooth.

Engine and transmission in perfect reliable condition, starts first time every time!
Suspension solid with no squeaks. (SLS rear Hydraulic suspension working perfectly).
MAF & Fuel pressure regulator replaced,
Vehicle cooling system is 100% NEVER over-heats!!
Brakes are in good condition, very sharp. ABS functioning properly.
Tyres are in great condition about 75% all round. Rims are SPOTLESS and like new!!
All window regulators and sunroof were greased up and serviced, all working LIKE NEW!!
Upper engine wire harness has also been REPLACED. (These commonly fail on pre-1996 W140`s.)
Battery almost new!

Very moderate fuel consumption, for such a powerful vehicle.

This vehicle is ready to be used for every day or casual driving. All paper work included. Selling "as is" Price is SLIGHTLY negotiable. PLEASE NO CHANCERS and no "low ballers." This is a genuine full house "Big Body Benz" for a really low affordable price. These cars were (and in some countries still are..) used by presidents and polititions for safe, quiet and comfortable commute. Perfect family vehicle and VERY GREAT for long distance trips. One of the safest four door sedans ever made!

Minor Issues:
Has a crack on back windscreen, (Crack is on the "inner glass layer" so it is still solid.)
Front seats show signs of wear (Not too bad, refer to pics), and center bottom console wood panel has some minor sun-cracks.
No spare wheel, jack and spanner. No tools in tool box.
License expired a few months ago and needs to be re-licensed. (All paper work included though.)

Roadworthy Certificate can be organized at an extra cost to the buyer.
Please call for an appointment to see the car, ask any further questions, or to make a reasonable offer.
ALL REASONABLE offers will be considered. CASH or EFT ONLY.
(If you have a vehicle less than R20 000 to trade + cash difference, Those offers will be considered also.)

The vehicle is based in Johannesburg, South Africa. Local pick up ONLY! If you want the car to be shipped, YOU will have to pay all shipping + customs costs and accept all risks involved.
