I found this 1984 AMG SEC on Autotrader. Looks to be in excellent shape, how much you guys think its worth? Here the link, if someone is interested in buying an SEC.

How does this guy know it has over 300 hp? Dyno charts? I don't think he has the 4 valve heads on the car and I don't think cam or exhaust changes will give you another 60+ hp on a 5.0L 2 vavle engine.

No, I haven't called him, I was justing looking and came across it. I am not that interested in buying it, but I will call him and get all the info about it. I e-mailed him for some engine pictures. I will post them if he sends them to me. Going by the mileage, if it as the AMG differential, it probably has the Gleason, which is not good. It probably is going to go out real soon.

Regards,
Al

The only chance it has of over 300hp is if its the 5.2 or 5.4L AMG upgrade, or if its the 4v 5.0. AMG 5.0 2v is good for 276hp. Newer ///AMG badge makes me wonder. Appears to be genuine AMG exhaust though.

That Car has been in autotrader for about a year now. I've seen it before, either the ad is old or maybe he was asking to much $$ back then and now changed his mind on the price. Looks like a sweet car...[:D]

seems like the right money for a clean original AMG coupe without the 32 valve motor. I have only seen one true AMG 32 valve car get sold in the last year it went for 30K with 65,000 miles.

Ditto. I hate those rear reflectors. [xx(]
