Being a Mercedes guy, I’ve always liked the 560sec and its siblings of the same body style. Here are several all up right now on eBay.
The body on this one has 292,390, but it has only 50,000 since a full restoration. The ad doesn’t say much about the 6.0, but the valve covers look genuine. Seller says all the documentation from Renntech is available. Pretty subtle for having an AMG engine, transmission, headers and rear end.
Here we go, this is a GREAT opportunity. Rarely do you find a decent vehicles listed on eBay at a low opening bid AND no reserve. A 55,000 mile 560 that looks amazing up for sale with the public setting the market price. This is fantastic if it was a standard 560 SEC, but this is a grey market car with an AMG body package. So you get the nice Euro headlights and the sculpted bodywork. Don’t miss getting a bid in on this one, someone could snag a real deal if this one goes under the radar on eBay. Probably not the smartest move for me to post this here since I’ll probably throw a bid in on this myself, but I’d like to see what the market sets itself at. If this was a later model, year I’d say if it didn’t breach $10k it would be undersold.
Here is a white one that the seller claims is a multiple show winner. I’m sure it is nice, but a 100,000 mile, 1991 model year car, in stock form must not have much competition in its class at whatever shows he’s entering it in.…

quote from eBay listing:
This is the one! Anthracite gray with black leather interior, 5-speed manual with the higher horsepower, higher compression european spec engine.
There really isn’t much to say about this eBay oddity, other than it has to be overpriced.
The seller says:
Only 2 cars were authorized by BMW to be custom modified to pick up version.
I’d like to know more about what exactly that means. I’m not sure I can see the fine folks in Bavaria back in 1984 thinking “You know Rolf we really need to compete with the Subaru BRAT segment”.
It has some nice goodies from Hartge and Schrick, but I really can’t explain what they were going for with that paint job.
If this can really be documented as a factory BMW project its rarity might give it some added collector value. It is going to take a special someone to want to take this one home at $25k. Besides, I know Mercedes already locked up the German El Camino (or would that be Die Straße) bragging rights. Below photo from my archives.
There are several Mercedes 300 Wagons in our neighborhood. I often think that if I had one I’d want to lower it an inch, put on period AMG monoblock rims, color match the lower panels, and upgrade to European spec headlights — which would make for a great family ride.
But this 300 wagon takes it to another level. It has the AMG 6L motor, 3 piece rims, and very rare body kit, to name a few of the tasteful and rare upgrades. Here is the majority of the seller’s listing from the eBay ad for this 300 AMG Wagon:
quote from seller’s listing:
987 Mercedes 300 Wagon with AMG 6.0 litre twin cam motor, complete AMG car in excellent condition. I have owned this car for 13 years, originally from Canada a built for Mr Feingold I aquired the car through Renntech from Hartmuth, the car was in for a major service and Mr. Feingold decided to sell me the car after a $17000 complete service.
The exterior of the car is finished in a blue similar to Ferraris Tour de France, it has a complete AMG body kit including the 3 pc AMG wheels color keyed to the body, these wheels were recently refinished and sits on new Pirelli tires, Complete amg Mods, suspension, Exhaust, header, adj transmission, it is a real 6.0 motor and has had all services to date it runs outstanding has 44,000 kil. it has the 320 AMG speedo. The car has never sustained any damage, the paint is excellent with the acception of the front spoiler that has some minor rashing at the bottom corner, the front spoiler has air intakes for the cooling of the front brakes, it has never been tracked or abused I use the car once in a while when I need to take the kids somewhere and I need the seating for 7 it has the rear folding seat.
Evan answered my cry for help in the last post and I’m so super grateful for the help! Here is his quick and dirty bio:
I’m a major gear head and German car fan. I did my first engine rebuild in 7th grade and was hooked from then on. Though I appreciate fine design and engineering regardless of make, Mercedes Benz is my marque of choice. I particularly enjoy the big power German sport sedans, a niche I filled with the purchase of Euro spec 1979 Mercedes 450SEL 6.9. From autocrossing BMWs at Indianapolis to hauling in a Mercedes down the autobahn, from the RUF Porsche factory to Watkins Glen racetrack, I’ve tried to engage in a variety of experiences to further my knowledge of the German cars I appreciate. I hope to help bring fans intriguing sales listings I uncover, along with some anecdotes and info.
Welcome aboard Evan! Looking forward to your posts and expertise; and I very much appreciate the assistance in growing this blog!
With a clientele that included Sophia Loren, Crayford conversions on 1970s Mercedes are an exclusive beast. These costly vehicles came warrantied by Mercedes and were the way customers who wanted an estate wagon for their fancy sedan could have the best of both worlds. This particular car interestingly shows the ugly U.S. market safety bumpers, but has avoided the recognizable, though inferior U.S. market quad circle sealed beam headlights in favor of Euro spec H4 beams. The seller, presumably using the register of Crayford Mercedes found here: http://www.crayford-benz.org, claims this to be one of only two or three in existence.
I may be mistaken, but I believe that this is not the only Koenig Special Benz once owned by baseball legend Ken Griffey Jr. in existence. Koenig epitomized the Miami Vice over the top bad ass look when it came to mid 80s Mercedes. This later 1991, has the same flavor with the in your face widebody kit, but I think the look is actually better pulled off by slightly larger W126 bodied Benz coupes like the 560SEC. Occasionally you will see the widebody kits in metal, but more often they are fiberglass and after nearly 20 years it may show some spiderweb cracking up close. It is hard to say what the premium here is for the owner provenance, but it safe to say this asking price is a significant discount from new. A new owner of this Koenig Special vehicle will need to remember that, though most mechanical parts won’t be any harder to find than standard 3 liter Mercedes fare, replacing the massive 315 size tires on the rears will be a cost. Fortunately with a 6 cylinder engine, instead of the torque of a 5 or 5.6 liter from a 126 bodied car, burnouts should be easier to avoid.…
1987 MERCEDES-BENZ 190E 2.3-16 EURO 5SP MANUAL, 185HP. 165K kms. If you are reading this add, you will know what this is. It has been owned by a enthusiast – all the usual and required updates and repairs have been done. No rust! New Brakes, Suspension, steering components etc, all done. Fully inspected and serviced. Rare!!
Suppose that is $11.9k US dollars, seems like a fantastic deal considering the obvious condition of this car. If CAD dollars, even better, snag it for $10.5k! Of course you’ll either have to pony up the serious coin to federalize this car, or put it in storage for 3 years until it passes the 25 year rule.

Typically I prefer to post discovered examples for sale that are in better condition and/or lower miles. But as I scrolled through the pics, the wheels on this car jumped out at me. They look like either original Momo 5 star or perhaps even Fittipaldi rims. Take a look at this 1987 Mercedes 190 2.3-16 on eBayMotors:
Please take a good look at the pictures, and then make a bid on this very special and rare car that is fun to drive and a pleasure to own. The amazing leather interior, front and rear bucket seats, 5 speed (dog leg) racing gearbox, stunning factory original ground effects kit. These cars don’t come up for sale very often so don’t miss this one.
As a young man in high school many moons ago, these were the rims to get. Can you help identify them?
The owner states that this AMG Hammer is the ‘real deal’, which is to say it has the 6.0L with 4 valve heads. This translates to 375hp and 5 second zero to sixty times — in 1987! That beat the Lamborghini Countach, the Ferrari 288 GTO, and the Porsche 911 Turbo in top speed!
Original AMG Hammer, I have owned this car since 1993 it has 19000 Miles on it and is in exceptional condition. The black original paint is flawless, no accidents, no track time, the Original AMG body kit is unmarked no cracks, no missing paint front spoiler is excellent, The original 17 inch Aero wheels are not curbed, and the tires are good. All factory stickers are present in the jams of the doors and trunk. The car is always stored inside my garage in a climate controlled enviroment.Original in every way…
