This is a beautiful looking 1984 Mercedes Benz 500SEL with only 76,012 miles in Champagne Metallic with the Palomino leather interior. This isn't a show car, but it is a very clean and very presentable example of a classic European sedan, both mechanically and cosmetically. This SEL looks great, runs great, and drives great. It has been very well treated and maintained, and it came from the same owner for the past thirteen years who lived in an affluent suburb of Philadelphia. This car is all original except for the newer set of chrome Mercedes wheels, but we have the original wheels if interested. The radio was also changed to a CD stereo, which sounds great.

I didn’t meet the previous owner, but he was no longer able to use this car which is how we came to acquire it. Apparently, this was a rarely driven third vehicle, and the photos show this 500SEL as we received it. We are not vintage Mercedes experts, but I’ll tell you everything we know about it:

This Mercedes runs and drives very well, and I drove this car on a 14 mile test drive. The 5.0L V8 engine runs excellent. It starts easily, idles smoothly, and runs very strong without any noises or other problems. The automatic transmission shifts very nicely. This vehicle was fully serviced less than a month ago which included a complete set of new Uniroyal tires, all new brake pads & rotors (Mercedes), all new belts and new oil & filters. This is a fully operational vehicle that is ready to be put to use today, and I don’t see any reason why this SEL couldn’t be a daily driver.

The exterior of this Mercedes looks very nice. I believe all of the paint on this car is original and don't see any body or paint repairs. The Champagne metallic finish has the nice patina of an older vehicle. There are some scratches and a few rust bubbles under the paint on some edges. The rocker panels are original and very solid as are the jambs, door bottoms etc. The undercarriage is also in great condition. All of the exterior chrome trim and bumpers are bright and clean. All of the exterior rubber trim, moldings, lenses, etc, are intact and in great condition without any damage.

The interior is also in excellent condition. All of the seats are clean with only very minor wear on the left edge of the driver side. The other seats look like they were never sat on, particularly in the rear. The carpeting is fresh and clean throughout this car without any holes or wear marks. There aren’t any rips, holes or damage on any of the seats or carpeting in this Mercedes. The dash pad and panel are totally intact without any cracks or damage, including the wood trim. This was a non-smoker owned vehicle and there aren’t any smoke odors or burn marks inside this car.

We have the clear title in hand. This is a beautiful 500SEL, that should serve it's owner well.
