Here we have the largest W126 known in Germany as the German dragster; the 1990 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL. It is a true flagship vehicle for the brand. It was sold to the original owner in Quebec & stayed local ever since. Now for sale by only the 4th owner in 32 vears. Patina is all about character & this is a real Patina example: it has never been repainted. It has true low mileage & has been well maintained over the years giving it lots of easy life moving forward. Electrically all is in working order with no hiccups. Just an issue with the A/C; mentioned below.
It is powered by the big 5.5L SOHC M117 V8 qiving it substantial power for the era. This land yacht provides exceptional comfort can fit 5 large bodies with ease. This car won the rear-seat award in 1990 for all luxury sedans. The performance & luxury this provides brings a very desirable driving experience as a classic.
In 2009 it was involved in 2 minor incidents amounting to a small claim of $1000 each. It takes next to nothing to reach a claim of that value with this car. There was no structural damage to the vehicle; strictly aesthetics. See the CarFax attached.
Hagerty would consider this car a #4 "Fair" condition due to it having flaws visible to the naked eye. Hagerty values these at $13,100 at #4. However, when it comes to this example the only issues are cosmetic & the next #3 "Good" condition are valued at $23,700. A small investment into the cosmetics would make all the difference in this car and would shoot up its value. A huge plus for this is the mileage as well. This vehicle is a great investment but also a great driving car. Bid & bid a lot !
