I think that is a very reasonable request and a gentlemans thing to do. My hat is off to you sir.

Good gracious! One of the greatest directors of the 20th century owned this beauty? I'd wanted a coupe, but perhaps a sedan is in order.

I'm wondering what a trip across the water would cost?

Sincerely,

Kevin Kola

Great info, GreenT!



John Frankenheimer - Biography - IMDb

"Start Your Engine: I like to wake up early on Saturday and go out to drive my car quickly. It's a 1997, 580-horsepower Mercedes AMG-SL 7.3. I won't tell you where because I don't want the police to know, but I really put the car through its paces. I also work on the maintenance of my own cars and do the detailing." (link)

"Owned a 1988 Supercharged Mercedes-Benz 560 SEL (SEC?), which was willed to the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles upon his death. Sometimes, it can be seen on display." (link photo credit Luke Colorado)

As I have been active in the rare w126 market I must say this car is absolutely the nicest "one of a kind" sedans that's been on the market in years. Has every imaginable option or add-on available at that time. The Lorinser sedan body kits are my favorite. Aggressive and elegant all in one. With this car having the Hi-HP engine and the interior appointments second to none, it will bring "all the money". To duplicate all the coolness of this pure tuner car from a stock US car would cost $20k+ in todays dollars. I took a look at all the other cars etc. that are being auctioned that same weekend by the same auctioneer and it appears their market focuses on high end buyers. My opinion is this car will go for about "double" what most people are thinking. I wish I had enough money to pay "too" much for this car. Just because I want it. If you love w126's as I do then you know this is a great find. Would love to see it in person. The big guns will be bidding on this car.
