1994 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Additional Info:

Here's "Sabine" my W140 S420 ready for a new garage/home...I'm looking for a serious buyer as there are lots of "strange people" trying to send me acashier's check for the car!! I'm sure that's legitimate, right?
Well, I've put lots of effort into this little lady overthe last 3 years. She was my second W140 and now I have my third W140 bought a few weeks ago (so far we've owned 25 or more models over the years so you can tell I'm a big fan of the brand).We moved to Florida three years ago and I bought her from a private person over by Tampa and started makingchanges to fix little things that were not working properly, like the plastic bearing in the shift linkage and defective headlight switch, etc. Mercedes is my "hobby" and especially these big body flagship cars, the famous W140. I'm not a mechanic as profession but havehad many Mercedes over time and do most of the work myself with the help of youtube,for the most part. The Mercedes Club Members help out on recalls and such but google and youtube get the job done.Simply put, this would make a great second car for someone who appreciates the size and safety of these S Class Mercedes. The buyer shouldn't have much to do for the year, depending on how much theydrive, except the normal maintenance, oil, oil filter and engine air cleaners plus a cabin air filter.Contact me if you have any questions and/or you wish more photos of a particular area of the car.I'm in Ormond Beach, FL near Rt. 95 just north of Daytona Beach if that helps.The title is clear and I have it in my desk ready to go.Make me a decent offer and I'll assist you in getting there or you can pick it up here inDaytona Beach, go for a swim, the ocean is warm now.
Exterior:The body color is the original silver with parchment leatherinteriorwhich is still in very good shape, could use some leather softner. There's a real wool seat cover on the driver's side that I think you'll enjoy as it's cool in the heat and warm in the little Florida cold (when we have it). Let's see: She's pretty much ready to go:
Standard on this model and more info: Folding outside mirrors Electric rear view mirror of all things Full size spare tire with all the tools including jack and folding lug wrench 6 Way electric seats with memory Climate control AC/Heat Wiring harness replaced by the M-B dealer in '02 as I read on the website Bose loudspeakers, I think it's 11 Long wheel base S Class Backup sensors that come up out of the rear fenders sort of range finders-dropped on later models Insulated double pane glass, makes for a very quiet car 18" wide alloy wheels, not the standard 16" Alloy spare wheel and tire Bright work is very good No dents along the sides of the car but a slight depression on the trunk under the 3rd brake light asmentioned above.
Mechanics, some things are a repeat from above: Synthetic 10/30 Mobil 1, was just changed Mann Oil filter too Throttle Body repaired over a year ago Front rotors have about 12,000 on them Newer Brake pads in the front, approx 8,000 Spark plugs some 2000 miles ago Engine Air Filters are new Cabin Air Filter too Recycle interior air filter also cleaned New steering shock E. antenna mast replaced New battery with warranty, 3 months ago Left front tie rod ends Center steering shock Left front drag link replaced Brake Fluid changed at 109K ASR Pump replaced Front end alignment a few months ago. All four matching tires with over 65% on themShe has low miles for the age,109K No wheel balance issue, she runs straight and true down the highway. a smooth ride I just drove it again yesterday and it maybe smoother than my '98 S420 the I just bought.Yes, of course the AC is cold, these cars as you may not know were years ahead of their time starting in 1991 through 1999 and a few in 2000 with Daimler-Benz spending millions in the development of this S Class Flagship. Drive this down the road and you'll understand what German quality is even after 24 years. You cannot beat the ride or handling except maybe in a new $100,000dollar New Mercedes S-Class. The double pane glass keeps out the "loud noise" of others toan astonishing degree. Come drive it and you'll see. Yes, and this maybe one of the safest carson the road today and the handling is superb for such a large, roomy, vehicle. The "94'swere probably the "best" models in many ways as the cars got cheaper in many ways until 1999.
Fixed since I've owned Sabine (Ursula was my earlier black W140):
Offset alloy 18" wheels, plastic painted gray metallic Matching fresh tires, with very good alloy spare Clarion DVD/CD with Bluetooth, Backup Camera, Headset Jack, microphone to call from the car,(hate to leave this in the car as the backup camera is musthave) Bose Stereo with 11 speakers New Front Rotors and Brake Pads Soft blue lights in the foot wells Soft Close door pumps front and rear (sometimes off and on and I have the pump) And many more little things like the emergency brake release handleInterior: The leather is still good, I'd say on a 10 scale with 10 the best it would be an 8. No check engine or lights on the instrument panel and more. The console wood is good for the year as are the door panels, front and rear, very nice. The power seats work perfectly as are the power windows and sunroof. Original owner's manual come with the car The remote works and I have extra keys. Yes, the elec. antenna works fine.In Summary:If you are looking for a low mileage, clean Mercedes this might be for you. You can contact me with question before and after the sale as I have good sources for parts and Info' but don't go to the Mercedes Dealer unless you get a second opinion from an independent shop.
Note please, the car is sold "AS IS", I'm not a dealer, this is a private sale of my car, no partial payments.If you are not serious with a "good ebay feedback score" please DON'T ATTEMPT TO BUY OR WASTE YOUR TIME AND MINE!!!
PS: I've made more pictures that I can send if interested and could assist with theshipping and have the car picked up from my garage here at our home in the gated community.
