Tuner Tuesday: 1985 Mercedes-Benz 500SEC “AMG” Convertible

We’ve talked before about how pre-merger AMG cars are a bit of a mixed bag; some are well-documented, fully built cars while others claim heritage without being able to back it up, seeming rather to just be a collection of parts. In the 1980s, there were a glut of aftermarket firms chopping the tops off of just about every luxury coupe you could imagine, and the SEC Mercedes was one of the popular ones as a base. Here’s one such car; a black with black leather 500SEC with AMG wheels and body kit. It’s claimed to be one of ten produced by AMG, but outside of the wheels and kit there doesn’t appear to be any other AMG pieces here – which is a bit odd. There’s also no documentation of the history shown despite the high asking price. Even stranger, this car appears on several sites – most recently Mecum Auctions, where it is recorded as being sold in the August 14-16 auction – but it also appears on another site much dirtier and with a period AMG badge on the right side of the trunk. Still, it’s an impressive looking car:

1985 BMW 535i – REVISIT


The E28 M5 is seemingly following in the E30 M3’s footsteps as the next hot commodity in the semi-vintage BMW game. If you want a lot of the M5 look at a discount, a 535i such as this is the next best thing. We featured this car back in November of last year and it is back up for sale at no reserve with a few hundred miles more on the clock.

1985 Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.3-16

While I often say that one of the first upgrades for a W201 owner should be the Euro headlight conversion, every now and again the domestic model units strike me an endearing. Kind of like a face you just have to love, even though it could be improved upon greatly. Perhaps it’s because even the lowly DOT-approved units featured yellow foglamps as standard with the ability to run the turn signal lamps and the foglights independent of the main headlight relay – a rarity on today’s domestic vehicles. All that aside, this looks like an honest example of a Cossie, and despite the seller’s poor eBay rating, the photos don’t reveal any immediate concerns. However, some detailed info on maintenance history should be required for any vehicle, particularly a rare model like the 16V sold by someone with a less-than-sterling reputation.
