FS 1991 560 SEL in nice shape, $3,900

Hello, fellow Benzoids!

Two kids in college is forcing me to pass on my 560 SEL to someone who will benefit from the fact that I'm selling it for less than I've put into it in the last four months ($4,000 in receipts for mechanical work). It has 142K miles.

I picked it up in southern Indiana. It has a very clean body. The pix will show a few minor scratches and blebs. There is a tiny bubble in passenger side rear wheel well, and some fading to the silver paint, but this is a really solid W126.
The gray interior is similarly nice--very clean dash and good carpet. Seats have some wear, but nothing wretched (see pix below).

Prior owner did top end engine and suspension rebuilds (no docs for this). Since then, it has had steering, vacuum line and exhaust work, new rear rotors, front and rear pads, an alternator, K&N air filter and a battery. Runs very smoothly. Clear title and good to go.

Location: Detroit, MI, USA

Price dropped as low as I can go! $3,500

OK, guys.
I just lowered it to $3,500. That's as low as I can go.

Give it a gander!

Bump to the top with a freshly lowered price

Well, I'll be taking a bath for it at this price. But I've just lowered it to $2,500. Update: new blower motor, too, in addition to all the other receipts over the last year ($4,500). Cannot just stash this vehicle in my garage (that's reserved for a '64 Dart). This is a fine survivor W126, originally from Flordia, then S. Indiana, so it's never seen salt. Come and get it!

My goodness this is less than the cost of rebuilding my rear suspension!

If I had the money and the need, I would buy it in a heartbeat. Let me see if I know someone who wants one....
