FS For Sale: 1988 420SEC Black Leather

Mercedes 420 SEC, V8 engine. All black and chrome exterior, with black leather interior, and brown horn dash.

Price: £6,999
Location: N16, London, England

I'm very sadly selling because my wife is pregnant and we need a four door car. And this is despite 5 different people telling me I shouldn't sell it now, but rather hang on to it for 5 years and watch the value APPRECIATE. But I can't...

Please buy this car from me. I'd much rather it went to a MB fan than any old driver!

You will know what this car is, but here's my pitch:

Turn heads with this absolute MODERN CLASSIC - I've gotten so many thumbs up and admiring glances. I've been stopped at traffic lights, and even at a motorway service station by enthusiasts and well-wishers who admire and appreciate this beautiful car for what it is: a STYLISH and SUBTLE v8 monster that gets more love than a car half its age would.

This specific car has featured in a PRIMAL SCREAM "Invisible City" music video because Bobby Gillespie spotted it and fell in love at once!

Brand new tires, fuel relay, battery, and more, this car drives like new.

It's not got a FSH (papers seem to have been lost in the 90s), but I've always had it serviced by George Fraser (Mercedes specialist garage in West London). The only changes that have been made to the original car is when the previous owners put in a new Pioneer stereo system with a very tasty sound (CD, USB port) and tinted the windows a bit.

Don't sell - plenty of room in the back for the baby.

Wife will understand!
