I have a 1988 Mercedes 560 SEL for sale - San Diego area.
Where to begin.... The car is in good condition for its age, has a current and valid CA Smog, is registered until June 2016 ($80 renewal fees) and has a clean CA Title in my name.
The car is completely original, from what I can tell. It has covered approximately 175k miles (the clocks stopped on the previous owner at 164k, I have them with the car. I have replaced with working clocks that show 148k)
Mechanically the car starts every time and runs exactly like a Mercedes V8 should. Powerful but exceptionally quiet. The autobox changes gear as it should and is very smooth. All the tires have good tread and the brakes work well.
Cosmetically the car is in good shape for its age. It does have typical California lacquer damage on the bonnet (sorry guys I'm English, I think it's the hood?) and the roof. The rest of the car is in good shape with a very small dent on the passenger side rear wheel arch as the pictures will show. I'm having the car detailed by the Mercedes Dealership here in San Diego this week so will look sparkling.
The interior is complete with very little wear to the seats, some minor cracking on the drivers side leather. The dash has a few cracks, again from sun damage. All the electrics work inside including the rear seat recliner.
It comes with the original owners book and service record (MB dealer service up to 98k 20 years ago), It has the original MB inspection sheet from before it left the showroom, it has the original first aid kit stored behind the back seats and the original radio with working automatic aerial.
This is a great car with fantastic mechanics, I was advised by MB to look in the region of $3k - $4k but I'm open to sensible offers.
I will post some pictures as soon as I get it back from the MB detail.
