1983 Mercedes-Benz 500SE AMG
Classic AMG style brought into the US in 1983 as a grey market import this rust free Euro spec car runs and drives excellent and is in great condition.
Since this 500SE AMG is a grey market euro spec car the VIN does show up in the eBay database. The VIN is WDB12603612033031
The AMG Engine Production and Development company founded by former Mercedes engineers Hans Werner Aufrecht and Erhard Melcher built this car prior to the AMG Mercedes-Benz merger. Note: The letters "AMG" stand for Aufrecht, Melcher and Großaspach (Aufrecht's birth town). This grey market euro spec car was imported into the US in 1983. This car is believed to have been converted in the US. Itis equipped withoriginal AMG parts.
Engine & Transmission: The very desirable (m117 5.0 liter V8) 500SE AMG engine in this car produces 231hp. The automatic transmission shifts smoothly and the car was completely gone through by local shop here in Portland Oregon (503) 236-1737 (call Mike to get mechanical details). This car is responsive, nimble and enjoys long-distance cruising. The underside of this car is extremely dry and with no leaks anywhere (see photos). This is a great example that is ready to drive and enjoy.
Body: This rust free car is extremely solid. The body is in a very good condition and all panels are straight with excellent gaps. All glass is in great shape no chips or cracks. The rear driver side door has ablemish in it. The paint presents well and shows the great lines of the car but does have a few areas that are not perfect. The front of the car has some rock chips. The original front spoiler is in great shape for its age and shows how carful this car has been taken care of. (see detailed photos). All the chrome is very nice. The original AMG rims are in good shape but not brand new looking.The rubber is good and all plastic lenses are great. The trunk area is very nice and solid as well as the spare tire compartment, It comes with jack, tools, and correct vented steel rim spare tire. Features include the AMG spec front and rear bumpers, trunk mounted badge and, paint. The rare four-spoke penta wheels have some pitting but overall are in good condition. The euro headlamps are immaculate. The underside is solid and un-tampered (see photos). I took detailed photos to show the great solid condition under this car.
Interior: The beautiful leather interior is in very nice condition presenting well, the original level of quality is still very apparent on this example. All the wood in this car has been restored to show quality standards. There is one small tear on the driver seat bottom and two cracks in the dash (see photos) Included with the sale is a clean replacement dash that has not been installed yet. The door skins are very nice as well as the armrests. The chrome bits in the interior are great. The radio is the correct original and antenna goes up and down as it should. The original carpet is great and the seats show no signs of excessive wear. This car is easy to use in modern traffic and I never get tired of driving this top-of-the-line flagship.
This is asolid unmolested example of a classic Iconic AMG Mercedes-Benz. These extremely comfortable tourers are considered highly usable classics continuing a tradition of handcrafted quality and superior engineering, Even cars twenty years newer will be hard-pressed to match the 500SE AMG for its quality, performance and unrivaled style. This example is perfect for cruising during the week and taking to car shows on the weekend
