Mercedes big W126-based coupé is fast followings its sixties predecessors in terms of desirability thanks to its timeless elegance.
This 500SEC is finished in Almandine Red with complimenting Navarra Red lower, contrasted by Mushroom leather interior. It features electric heated seats, cruise control and air conditioning. In addition, it has a period car phone, complete with instruction manual.
The SEC was first sold by Malaya Mercedes, Crawley in the beginning of 1989 and has subsequently had 5 keepers. It ha covered 91k miles from new. A new speedo had to be fitted at 62k miles, however this is documented within the history, so the current mileage is shown as 29k miles.
All the original books/manuals and tools come with the car along with a full service history from MB main dealers and specialists. In recent years a great deal has been invested into this car ensuring it performs as it should. Recent work has included cylinder head rebuilds, A/C system rebuild, replacement transmission fluid and seals, replacement diff seals plus much more. We have looked after the car for the last year and carried out a full rebuild/replacement of the fuel injection system, new brakes and fitted four new Dunlop tyres.
The result is that the car drives absolutely beautifully. An SEC like this in fine fettle is the perfect long distance GT car and this example proves the point.
The body is in very good condition with none of the usual corrosion. The bumper chromes are also free from corrosion. The interior is excellent with soft Mushroom leather, bright walnut and very little evidence of wear.
Supplied with a new MoT and another service to be carried out by ourselves on point of sale.
A perfect SEC for the buyer who wants a ready-to-go car to use as intended.
