1991 Mercedes-Benz S-Class SD Additional Info:

If you've been in the market for what I say, arguably is one of the greatest diesel Mercedes Benz auto's ever made then you know there aren't many on the market with less than 200,000 miles on them let alone a 1 Owner and one with less than 45,000 miles.
I am listing this as a favor too a long time client and am particularly interested because although I hate to realize my age, I did sell this too him new in 1991.
The vehicle is about as nice as you could expect a 42000 mile, 25 year old car to be. It's been serviced since new at my place of employment, Mercedes Benz of Atlantic City up until 2004 and his other dealer in Fort Lauderdale post 2004.
The paint from what the owner says is 100% orig and it seems that way as I look at it. I would rate the exterior of the vehicle a strong 8. There is no rust to speak of but it's 25 years old and may have some patina.... You are looking at the vehicle as it was shipped from his garage in Fla and has not been detailed so I'm being conservative with an "8" and a good detail might make it a 9 or..... The interior is a strong 9 and shows as a 42000 mile "126" chassis car. As you know they aged very well and this one shows minimal signs of age. Again, a new set of mats and a detail and the interior would most likely be a "10". Essentially a fair weather automobile, as he owns 8 others or so. It's been between Fla. winters and Southern NJ summers but at both locations was kept inside so there really are no signs of sun baking, cracks, fading .... on the exterior or interior other than average left seat bolster wear and old floor mats.
Mechanically, it feels as it did in 1991! From the seat springs to the suspension it's wonderful and the 229 lb/ft torque of this great motor moves this car along effortlessly with modestly good acceleration. The owner recently spent close to $5000 on the A/C system and I'm sure that if needed, I can supply receipts. It seems to need nothing and I wouldn't hesitate to drive this gem cross country.
The 1 negative that I can see is that it needs a hood pad (insulation) as most do after 25 years.
The owner is a 89 year old gentleman that is a non-smoker and at 89 still flies his own plane. I only mention this to give you some feeling on how the car is kept as pilots have a reputation for the way they keep their machines serviced. This vehicle received what ever was recommended. The only reason for the sale is simply his wife no longer drives and with 8 vehicles in the household he is the only driver and most of the time drives a truck or his SL63. That said, by no means is this a MUST SELL so please be mindful of low ball offers because they will be politely ignored. Feel free to ebay message me and I would be happy to answer any question and address any concerns and supply a CarFax on request.
The vehicle can be seen for inspection by appointment only. It's in his hangar so prompt times for him to meet with you are a must.
Two things:
1. requires an immediate deposit via pay pal upon end of listing. This deposit will be NON-REFUNDABLE if #2 occurs.
Inspections are welcome at any time as long as we have an appointment so:
2.DO NOT make an offer and have it accepted then think that you can re negotiate once you come to pick it up if you haven't opted for inspecting.... or if you simply never follow through with the deal for whatever reason.
Not to be difficult but I've wasted time and lost money and real buyers because of flakes and unethical buyers that have bad intentions and sadly Ebay does not do nearly enough to rectify!
