Amazing creampuff 1990 Mercedes Benz 560 SEL on eBay with $33,000 asking price!


Wow... That's about all I can say!

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Mercedes-Benz-500-Series-Sedan-/252351333686?forcerrptr=true&hash=item3ac14fc536:g:9wEAAOSwsN9XCvIH&item=252351333686

I don't think I have ever seen a Mercedes that mint before! Only 14,000 miles and a $33,000 buy it now! Looks like it's worth every penny!

Just amazing that there are still cars out there that have been kept this clean! Very impressive!

Yet there is an SEC / AMG 6.0 DOHC Wide body with an asking price of $160,000 with almost 100,000 miles!

Compared to the SEL above the SEC looks as dirty as a hooker on Woodward Ave!

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Mercedes-Benz-S-Class-AMG-6-0-Quad-Cam-4-Valve-Wide-Body-/301930684326?forcerrptr=true&hash=item464c789fa6:g:8zsAAOSwSzdXB~85&item=301930684326

Still, an AMG 6.0 DOHC Wide body is somewhat of a unicorn, but that seems like a lot of miles for a vehicle with almost 100k on the clock and a faded interior and dirty engine. Poor presentation on the sellers part. The AMG SEC is pretty cool looking, but I think if I had lay out my own cash I'd go for the $33,000 SEL with 14k miles on the clock.

Hey folks,

Someone somewhere has spent a lot of $$$ at some point on that SEC...( AMG Japan ??? This is news for me ).

Average 560SEL's here in Oz sell for many & varied amounts of dollars, but I can't say I've seen one at the asking price above...That's in the price range of Very Good Condition & low mile 560SEC's !

Might be waiting a while to sell that SEC, unless the cars tidied-up for sure !

It seems that a nice paint job on your own SEL may well & truly pay for itself three-fold if you ever sold your baby SELLC ! You were certainly right in their value increasing over time, no one can doubt that !

Good post,

Rastus

Actually that AMG 6.0 DOHC is in kilometers so it's actually closer to 50,000 miles rather than 100,000 as I was saying.

Still, they could have at least cleaned it up real nice... What for $150,000 they couldn't afford to have it professionally detailed prior to the sales photos?

Maybe.... Or perhaps they were trying to preserve the "patina".. I myself would like to see waxed door jams and a clean motor on a vehicle costing $150k, but that's just me.

LOL

Wonder whatever happened to this car? Seems like someone had a $30,000 bid on it! Hard to believe the seller let the deal fall thru for $3,000!

That's totally in mint condition. That needs to be found by right person.

I agree! It's not only a nod to the W126, but most of all to the person who was able to keep this vehicle in this condition for all these years! 

If I had $33k to burn, I do it in a second! Only problem being is I don't even have a place to store such a car that would be worthy of such a clean car! You'd need a climate controlled area like your living room with an electric fence to surround it! And no windows or you might get a hint of sun-fade!

It would be work! And it would be hard to even drive it on the road without constant worry! Someone filthy rich will buy this car and drive it every day I bet. Or maybe not, but that's usually how it goes.

Then again, $33k is about what you will pay for a new Honda Accord, if not more! So there is tremendous value in this car for sure given it's MSRP of $80,000!

I've got to stop looking at this car before I do something stupid! LOL
