Shortly after its creation, the car was brought to the California Bay Area, under the 1980’s “grey market†import process. Evidence of this is found in the BAR (Bureau of Automotive Repair) sticker found in the inside driver’s door jamb, which was necessary for the car to be titled in California under more stringent California Air Resources Board (CARB) requirements. The title is also denoted “Non-USA†as proof of its European beginnings.

Upon arrival in 1984, the car was sent to Sport Vehicle Specialists, a licensed AMG dealer to receive its transformation. The original sticker documenting this is also still located in the driver’s door jamb. In the 1980’s, wealthy car owners brought their Mercedes vehicles to licensed AMG dealers and special ordered cosmetic and performance upgrades which could be hand selected from a variety of options. A vintage copy of the catalog from this era is included with the sale of this car and features a nearly identical Classic White 500 SEC AMG on the cover and inside. This was prior to the merging of AMG and Mercedes Benz, where customers could purchase a fully equipped AMG model from the dealer, hence the term “pre-merger.â€

This car received the following genuine AMG upgrades:

– All Exterior Body Moldings Painted to Match the Car (Window Trim, Grille, Bumpers, Etc. in Matching Classic White)

– AMG Aero Body Kit consisting of front, rear and side lower skirting (Matching Classic White)

– AMG Rear Spoiler (Matching Classic White)

– AMG Badge (Matching Classic White)

– AMG Lowering Springs

– AMG 16×8†“Penta†Style Wheels

– AMG Leather Steering Wheel (Matching Orion Gray)

– AMG Interior Enhanced Wood Trim Package on the Doors (Matching Burlwood)

– AMG Recaro Front Seats (Matching Orion Gray)

– AMG Speedometer Faceplate

The car also features a very unique “AMG-SK†12 speaker audio system paired to the original Becker radio. On rare occasions, AMG partnered with the German Audio Company “SK†to provide more enhanced car audio systems. This system features a custom rear hat tray in matching leather with (2) subwoofers, (2) mid-range speakers, and (4) tweeters. The front dash is outfitted with (2) mid-range speakers and (2) tweeters. The speakers are powered by vintage SK external crossovers. All of these speakers, including the custom tray, are marked “AMG-SK†with the serial number 81054.

There is no evidence of any performance modifications done to this vehicle (engine, exhaust), which was also available by licensed AMG dealers at the time. It is likely that because this car was commissioned by a California owner, that CARB restrictions precluded the modification of the engine and exhaust. Whoever purchased this car and had it outfitted was strictly interested in the 1980’s, “over the top,†look. They spared no expense to achieve the most audacious, most luxurious image to an already iconic styled car. THEY GO FOR 50 TO75K
