FS - Beautiful C126 560SEC $7900 OBO
1989 Mercedes Benz 560SEC
Runs and drives immaculately. I purchased this car in December 2015 from a dealer in Attleboro, MA and drove it to Atlanta on 12/30-12/31/15 with ZERO issues. Also drove it another 1300 miles round trip from Atlanta to Orlando in early February 2016. Quieter than a new Lexus and smoother than a Cadillac.
Plenty of power. Odometer, A/C, heat, seat warmers, power windows, sunroof, BOTH seatbelt extenders, all power seat functions including the headrests...they ALL work!
Absolutely no overheating or mechanical issues. Leather is soft and supple with no tears. Paint and body are in very good condition. The car is solid as a tank yet accelerates impressively and will cruise at 100 mph effortlessly. Decent gas mileage at 18-22 mpg on premium.
A great example of a well-built, classic 1980s MB that is approaching collectible status...
As i believe in full disclosure, the few minor issues I've identified are as follows: quarter-sized dent on trunk lid, one of the wheel center caps is missing, driver door shows some paint bubbling around the trim and could use a respray, the cruise control stalk is temperamental and doesn't always function (might just be a fuse or switch), the passenger side rear window switch is not functioning (but the window works perfectly using the switch on the center console), the front armrest could use reupholstering, and there is an occasional "thud" from the driver side rear shock spring (perhaps its not seated snugly...doesn't affect the operation of the car at ALL).
This is a near perfect car, given its age, with just under 126k miles and rising as I do use it!
Asking $7900 OBO. Will entertain all reasonable offers!
