Description for Mercedes-Benz 500-Series 1990

Here is my 1990 Mercedes 560 SEC for sale.I took many pictures both with haedlight and fog lights on and off, just ask for them if needed.and a couple of video while driving, one from inside one from outside, this last one in parking lot.
Since first time I ever saw this model I have always been convinced that this is the best model Mercedes ever made.When I bought it in Richmond, Virginia I flew there and drove back to Utah.On that trip I have been driving it for 2015 miles, in 2 days and 19 hours.Right after that, I started my 8 hours work shift (I am a commercial driver).Sure I was very tired but it has been possible because of the confort I could enjoy while bringing the car home.I have been driving almost entirely on freeways, between 50 and 70mph mostly.I personally have been testing it up to 80mph a few times and to 100mph, and to my satisfaction it runs as smooth as it should when driving and enjoying this collector's car.This car is almost 30 years old, and though did not show any sign of problem.I personally agree with those that state Mercedes used to build their cars like tank, engineered to last longer, hundreds of miles. More over, these Mercedes are the very last that have not been propped with all the electronics (that use to fail so often and are expensive to have fixed) devices and screens, thus sparing unwanted trouble to the owner.
I nonetheless chose to have it checked for maintenance needs as soon as I got it home, because I cannot take the risk to let anything cause problems that could go out of control, and decided to have done everything that was needed, this costed several thousand dollars. I went to Alex's Autohaus, they specialize in German import cars, and use only original parts.I believe in order to get peace of mind for the years to come, it is always good to take care of one's own stuff. I personally did the filter and oil change about 750 miles ago, and flushed and changed coolant with Mercedes original coolant.For possible future use I also included in sale brand new unused weather strips and proper wurth rubber glue.All the maintenance documentation comes with car.
the external condition of the car is quite good, I got compliments from both man and women.I would rate it 8/10, mainly because of some at first glance mostly unnoticeable superficial small scratches.Inside of car is 7/10, this because rear right seat there is a light stain, which can be taken care with leather cleaning products.Still black leather is quite soft and not broken.the wood inside by the stick has sign of age, but it is not cracked or broken.The air conditioning works, the only main thing to fix would be the sun roof mechanism, wich should be replaced and lubricated. Still the electric motor associated with it works.
Even now that I put it for sale I don't change my mind on this, only I don't use the car enough to have it stay with me.I will accept only reasonable offers, thanks.
