I was browsing Ebay USA looking at some cars I cannot get in Australia:( when I came upon this ad for a 500E.
The thing I noticed is the seller will be selling an 88 560SEC Wideboy with 62.xxx miles for $20K US.

If was RHD and clean I'd be on it, but as it's a lefty here's the heads up re the upcoming auction.

The owner is a member on this forum (great guy BTW), and not sure why he is selling the car as he recently bought it in March / April of this year (out of FL) and was having custom wheels made for it when I last chatted with him. Looks like he is really thinning out the fleet. I am surprised the 500E has not sold by now.

Comments from the owner:

Good morning,
Yes, it is a 1988 Mercedes Benz 560sec with 62,xxx original and documented miles (white over Palamino leather with white trim). I acquired this wide body W126 from a car collection in Fort Lauderdale FL, and had it serviced at Auto Haus (Mercedes, BMW, Porsche and Audi specialist) in Yorktown VA. I just had the very rare 3 pieces Gotti Axia wheels shipped from England (17x10 front and 17x11 rear) at a cost of over $4K (have receipt), and in the process of installing them with new tires on the car (that is why it is not for sale as of yet, next week probably). This Mercedes is flawless and all the componants are in working condition.
Thank you....

Huh? I don't think this is an Amg widebody , this sounds like the zender widebody from that fl dealer a few months back, with the incorrect rims.

That car didn't sell in a day... dealer was trying to sell that car to me for $9000. Looks like this seller is putting period correct rims on it and trying to flip for a quick $7k plus profit.

If it's not the zender widebody then that's a different story

The car needs to be lowered with the "right" offset wheels and will look great. Those chromies are way too positive in offset.

we shall see if thats indeed the car this seller is putting correct rims on.

The info about FL dealer and timing of purchase puts it right on the money.

I have to imagine the reason he just said "widebody" and not "AMG widebody" is bc its the zender

Yea it's OK, sans the wheels of course, but it's just not nearly as appealing as an AMG. I think it'd be much better suited to a darker color. I like neviu's much more.
