For Sale: 1988 420SEL in Dallas, Texas

Hello everyone. I’m selling a 1988 420 SEL with about 116,500 miles here in the Dallas, Texas area (USA). It’s anthracite gray with palomino leather interior. I have owned the vehicle for more than a decade. My father purchased it new from the dealer. The car is in very good condition and drives well.

Mercedes-Benz certified technicians have always serviced it and I have maintained good service records. It is always garaged, detailed regularly by me and driven daily Monday through Friday. Below is a link to a photo slideshow. Thank you for browsing.

Price: $4,000

This looks to be an outstanding deal. Don't take a penny less than your asking price. You could probably get $1500 more pretty easily.

Love the condition of the wood console. Surprised it doesn't have a leather wrapped steering wheel. Unless I am missing something, $3K sounds like a giveaway.

holthoff, thank you. I'm staying firm on the price and selling it as is. It's a wonderful car and I hope the new owner takes just as good care of it as we have over the years.

LostInTime, thank you. Yes, the console wood is in almost pristine condition. It's always in a garage when it's not being driven. I have also detailed the entire interior on a regular basis. The steering wheel is MB OEM; it feels like leather but I believe it's MB Tex. It looks and feels like new.

benzito, thank you. There has been strong demand for the car. And based on forum feedback here and elsewhere on the web, I have increased the price to $4,000.

benzitch, please use the private messaging. You were supposed to call me at at 9:30 am eastern time this morning. I didn't receive a call until 11:21 am EST and I was showing the car to someone when you left a msg. I would be happy to discuss this with you off the public forum. Thank you so much for your interest.
