Post 1999 Mercedes_Benz S500 Grand Edition for sale

Hi everyone!

Just wanted to let the 140 community know that I will be selling our 1999 S500 Grand Edition shortly. The car has 97,000 miles on it and is in very nice condition. The Grand Edition was a special run of 140s at the end of the production cycle of the 140 body cars. The Grands were equipped with special black maple wood trim, lighted thresholds, AMG wheels, special paint and leather. I will be taking photos of our car in the next couple of days, so stay tuned. The car has an "R" title because it was stolen at one point and had the console harmed. It was replaced with the proper Grand Edition console. The only issues with the car are that the power door locks do not work (you have the lock the doors manually), and the trunk self-closing mechanism does not operate, thus you have to close it manually as well. The car runs great. AC is ice cold. I will sell the car for $12,000.

Thanks for looking! The car is in Reading, PA.

Just curious, before you post the photos:

Why would you sell a great car like that?

Stryker,

The reason I am going to sell the Grand Edition is because I now have two 1997 S600s. I have always been a 600 fan and found the second S600 recently in exactly the same color as the first one. All three are great cars, but I have to sell one of them and I juse personally prefer the 12 cylinder examples.

Stu

X2. Edit: Aww, I see. O.K. I wish I had the cash, I would have loved to have bought it. "Yeah thats right... Mines the 'Grand Edition'..." It is strange though, I've never heard of that before. Time for a bit of googling!

You will have to fix the door locks and trunk before you can think about getting $12k for it.

Please see the following link for a Picasa album of pictures of the S500 Grand Edition. I have listed it on ebay a few minutes ago.

Original Wheels?

Certainly your GE is a fine looking car.

I have a question about the wheels. While I recognize that they are AMG wheels, they seem to be a different version than I have on my GE and different from those in the factory promo picture of the GE.

While it may well be that this is just a factory variation, I just have never seem that version of the AMG wheel on a GE.

To the best of your knowledge, are those original factory wheels installed on the Grand Edition?

I am not certain whether the AMGs on my G.E. are just a variation the factory put on or a previous owner may have placed on the car. Mine are 18"s which is what the specs listed for the car, but I can't attest to their originality on the car.
