The Mercedes-Benz 560SEL (W126) was the company’s flagship model for 1986. It is still considered one of the best-selling, most reliable, and popular S-class cars in Mercedes-Benz’ long history.

This 1986 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL was modified by aftermarket tuner Lorinser. It is a European market car that was owned for the majority of its life by Evans Evans Frankenheimer, star of “Bonnie and Clyde,” and wife of legendary film and television director John Frankenheimer.

Some potential mechanical issues (high idle) and the backwards NA-spec headlight wipers look dorky, but otherwise a beautiful and rare car! ECE engine, Lorinser wheels and body kit, euro bumpers and headlights, and a tasteful custom interior - unless there are big problems lurking, it should push past $10k easily. Good thing it's not convenient, or I might be the one bidding it up!

How about our resident GIF expert (you know who you are), can you mine these pics out of the HTML and embed them to this thread for reference, please

The 4-place SEC seating with fridge is perfectly integrated without looking gaudy or over the top. I bet that car smells great inside with that soft leather...
