1988 Mercedes Benz 560 SEL
Good Running, onest Example

This 1988 560SEL is a nice, ell-maintained example that we recently took in on trade for another classic Mercedes Benz. It is overall in very good condition, owever it does have some needs both cosmetically and mechanically, ut nothing that is too complicated for the average enthusiast looking to put their own touch on this classic grand Mercedes-Benz. It is a great runner and still maintains that solid feel that is a hallmark of the W126 560 SEL.

This was one of the best luxury sedans in its day - compared with the BMW 750iL, entley Turbo R. Anyone familiar with the W126 knows they are exceptional luxury cars - fast, omfortable and elegant. They are also well known for longevity, ith many examples seeing well over 200,000 miles with proper care and maintenance. While this isn't a perfect car, t shouldn't take much to get to another level.

This 560SEL presents well in Dark Blue over Palomino interior. It has a few cosmetic needs, ncluding some light damage to the rear panel as well as on the right quarter panel. Please see the photos for details.

The structure is sound and we see no evidence of severe corrosion underneath. There is however, ome rot in the front bumper and it should be changed out. There is a spot of damaged paint on the hood, bout 1.5 inches in diameter. Otherwise the car is straight, he panels fit well, nd it looks very good.  

Inside, he Palomino tan seats and carpets are in very good condition with no cracking or splitting in the upholstery. Carpets and mats are excellent. There is only minimal wear on the driver's seat and armresd and there is a small crack on the left hand side of the dash. The wood trim is complete but average.

The heat and AC system work very well, ven in automatic mode, nd the power adjustable rear seat functions properly. There are a couple of bad window switches and the aftermarket radio is inoperative.

Please note that the odometer stopped working (a very common issue on these) about 1,000 miles ago.

Mechanically, he 5.6 liter V8 runs strong. The idle is high due to a fault in the idle control circuit, ut once in drive the car runs beautifully and the transmission shifts crisply up and down. The ride is good, ut it would benefit from an alignment.

It also needs a tie rod end and front brake rotors/pads due to lack of use over the past year.

With its needs aside, his really is a good, onest example, e have owned Mercedes of this era in the past (including bad ones!) and we know how a car with good bones should feel, nd this is one of them. With minimal investment, his will make a very satisfying classic that can be used regularly.
