1986 500SEC

Hi all,

I am excited to share my recent purchase of a 1986 500SEC. It is 199 blue black metallic aka Blauschwartz over 275 cream beige.

Found on Craigslist initially, I was anxious to track the car down as soon as possible and began searching Google for more ways to contact the seller. A Google street view photo turned up the car on an independent mechanics lot and I called the shop to schedule a time to come see it.

The seller was great to deal with and so I loaded it up on a trailer and took it home.

Still going through it and cleaning it up but very pleased with my purchase.

Nice find! I still hope to get my hands on one someday, but it's looking less and less likely as life progresses.

That is a rare find over your way and ticks all the boxes
Being a gen2 Euro check and see if it has Tri-Ys or Euro logs twin dumpers and let me know the FD part # on the plate. It will have 560 heads, but not sure on comp ratio until some investigating. Well done!!!!
