FS: 1988 560SEL, 1-owner, all original, 47K miles, white/grey, southern car

Hi, I hope you guys are all well. I miss hanging out here!

I don't get these much anymore. My last car like this went to a forum member right after I told him "OHMYGODIFYOUDON'TBUYTHISCARYOUARECRAZY!" on the phone.

That was about 3-4 years ago? Maybe more.

This is a one owner car, FL all its life. It has 47K original miles. It has never had any body or paintwork. It is 147 white over 278 grey leather.

It is in excellent cosmetic condition inside, outside, in the engine bay, and underneath. Chrome is bright, glass is clear, interior wood dark, seating leather smooth and supple.

Mechanically it drives great. Engine/trans smooth. Brakes strong, steering tight, everything working.

It ain't cheap, so I hope none of you were expecting a craigslist 560SEL from me!

At asking price, i will include the following:

- Both head gaskets replaced
- Timing chain job done
- Valve cover gaskets and oil plan gasket replaced
- Oil change, brakes if needed, alignment, detailing, etc.

So the car will be not only 100% ready to roll, but will have the two most important (and @#$% expensive) maintenance/repair jobs freshly done for its next owner. Good to go for next 100K+ miles!

Price is $19,900. I can reduce the price if a buyer wishes to do some/all of the work listed above themselves.

Car is located in eastern PA, about 45 minutes north of Philadelphia. I can arrange for low-cost rapid transport anywhere in USA.

There are not many left on earth like this one, I can promise you that.

Please call Bruce if interested at 856-912-2600, or email me at brucem105@comcast.net.

Thanks for looking!
