Tuner Tuesday: 1983 Mercedes-Benz 500SEC AMG

Back in October, I wrote up a Euro-market Mercedes-Benz 380SEC AMG that was a bit of a poser, but in great condition available for a relatively low price. It looks like no one was really interested in that particular model, though, as it still remains available today. Perhaps that’s because it lacked many of the real-deal AMG components; well, to rectify that I enter into evidence Exhibit B. Today’s near twin of that car appears to be the real deal, complete with AMG suspension, ATS “Penta” wheels, the full body kit and some nifty drive line components. With only a few hours left to act, will this period-correct Bahnstormer be the car that you desire? Take a look at all of that white:

It certainly is a lot to take in, but it looks the part for sure. I’m a bit confused by the advertisement; no documentation about the AMG parts – or, importantly, whether this was an AMG-built car or a car assembled from AMG parts, is provided. I would guess that, in part, is why the bidding is so low currently, sitting below $10,000. For that amount, you get the great SEC look in a bit overdone but correct “dipped” white, some fantastic looking wheels and Euro goodies, and a host of AMG upgrades. The package is about as perfectly 80s as you can get, minus Crockett and Tubbs. The white over blue is a nice combination, though I’d probably change the wheel color to either silver or matching white to complete it. I also liked on the 380 how the AMG badge was black – even if it wasn’t correct. These cars aren’t for everyone, but show up to a meet in this and you’re sure to draw an appreciating crowd. What a neat car!

  1. IMHO an interesting car, with an ad that screams “run as fast as you possibly can.” All caps with ridiculous grammatical errors that makes me feel dumb just for reading it and doesn’t bode well (in my biased opinion) for the kind of previous owner I’d like to buy a car from. No original AMG documentation, no papers from importer that guarantee authenticity, no correspondence with either of those entities in an attempt to check = probably not legit. Around the 5th time in 2 minutes that this ad made me laugh out loud I copied and pasted the text (up to the enumerated list) into MS Word and it computed it as “Grade level 7.5 – It should be easily understood by 13 to 14 year olds.”

    That doesn’t even take into account the fact that it’s 2013 and he’s still hooked on the caps lock key and uses sentences like, “IT WENT THROW CALIFORNIA BUREAU OF AUTOMOTIVE. THEIR IT PASS US AND CALIFORNIA EMISSION TESTS AND GOT STAMP ON THE DOOR JAM.” This was another favorite, “NEEDS REPLACING OR FIXING A LISTED ON CONDITION DESCRIPTION.”

  2. yeah I’m thinking someone who got messed up on “coke” from the Miami Vice days is trying to sell this car……
    still IF is really an AMG car……..nah chances are service records are as rare as this guys grammar.

  3. Sold for $13,100. Maybe a great deal?
