1989 Mercedes-Benz S-Class 560 SEC Additional Info:

Car is absolutely immaculate, impeccably maintained, and in superb condition overall. Make an offer.
Needs a head gasket (leaks coolant externally, not internal) due to age. Head gasket replacement is bigger than my wallet and/or my DIY ability. I'm looking for an MB enthusiast interested in buying for a reasonable, negotiable price. It still starts, runs, drives, shifts as it should.

Sold new in California via the Mercedes-Benz European Delivery Program (I was told this was George Lucas's car but have no evidence of that). Spent 15 years in California. Moved to Oregon with its third owner, and then to Colorado in 2015.

Colorado emissions check and inspection was passed in 2015 and again in 2017 with no problems.

Clean Colorado title in the seller’s name

A square set of 18 x 8.5″ genuine and rare Lorinser RS90 wheels from Germany in good shape but with some curb rash. A fifth Lorinser is in the trunk as a spare.

The eight-way powered dual-stage heated front seats are both working correctly, and the upholstery on the seats and door panels is in good condition with some wear visible on the driver’s seat bolster.

The sunroof is working as it should

Headliner is good but minor sagging slightly in places

The A/C was converted to an R134a, system blows cold after a charge

Dash is smooth with no cracks

Carpeting appears free of stains or wrinkles

Burled walnut trim shows no cracks in the lacquer, with the dash and center console wood replaced in the early 2000s

The stereo was professionally replaced by the prior owner in 2016 with an Alpine model, including Bluetooth connectivity, external amplifier and subwoofer in the trunk, and new rear and side speakers. The front speakers are disconnected. The original Becker Grand Prix head unit comes with the sale.

The frame and body panels are dry and solid with no rust.

Stack of service records from previous owners dates back to the 1990s.

Receipts for work done by the seller and prior owner are included, along with owner’s manual, original inserts, original first aid kit, and original Mercedes-Benz toolkit.

All lights, indicators, and headlight washers are fully functional.
