1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SEC

Back in the late 1980s, the sun was setting on the R107 Roadster as one of the longest lived, most successful models Mercedes-Benz had ever known. But there was another, more incognito way to go if you wanted personal luxury: the SEC coupe. While not as sporty or flash as the SL, the SEC exuded the aura or wealth that so many up and comers were seeking in the eighties. Powered by the same 5.6 liter V8 engine in its four-door counterpart, the 560SEL, this big coupe was optimal transport for those long weekend jaunts not quite worthy of hailing the private jet for. This 560SEC for sale in California has covered a mere 42,000 miles and looks impeccably clean in the de rigeur black over parchment color combination.

The SEC model wasn’t the most flamboyant coupe design to emerge from Stuttgart, but it was a bit better proportioned than the SLC which preceded it and more lithe than the big bruiser of a coupe W140 that replaced it. The SEC has yet to gain traction in the collector market like the R107 SL, but when you find a good one like this, they can command strong money. The last low mileage SECs we featured were pulling in the $17,000 to $20,000 range, which is a little under where this car is priced. But with some mint W123s pulling near that price, is a similarly priced SEC that out of the question?

    Beautiful car but at the $20k price point it doesn’t do much for me and nor is there a lot of value here. 20k offers many alternatives or a big downpayment on much newer and equally impressive iron.

    If I didn’t have a low mile 500E in the garage, I would have already pushed the ‘buy it now’ button.

    Agree with Raymond. Classy and looks great, but at $23K, there’s way too many better choices.
