1990 Mercedes-Benz 500-Series 560 sec CARB/BAR certified Additional Info:

Hi folks,
Up for grabs is a beautiful Euro Spec 560 SEC, fully federalized and CARB certified.
VIN# WDB1260451A513292. MFG 10/1989
The previous owner was in the Air Force and imported this from Japan in the mid 2000s. I bought it with a clean CA title several years ago and I have a clear Texas title in my name, which is all you will need to get to registered. It is CARB certified, so California admission should be a breeze. It is a great example of a well maintained car.
The 5.6L V8 with the euro 117.968 engine and 10:1 compression engine believed to be the 300 HP version. It drives great and has amazing pickup for a car of its vintage. Transmission shifts smoothly. Truly an autobahn cruiser that travels effortlessly at 80 MPH
