1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL with 50k miles

Like the Porsche 928 we featured yesterday, this 1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL for sale in New York brought up memories from my childhood. I remember coming back from an auto show and scanning the pages of the latest Mercedes brochure to come across a picture of a similar black on black 560SEL. The flagship of arguably one of the most revered luxury brands, this was a car with few equals. With a rear seat that measured almost five feet across, this was a conveyance for dignitaries and celebrities. While it started to seem a little bit dated towards the end of the production run in 1991, people still clamored to buy these über sedans and many are still pressed into service today. With only 50,000 miles on the odometer, this is one W126 that has lots of life left to give.

One thing about luxury cars from the 1980s is that you are sometimes left with the vestiges of old technology. It’s rather amazing how seamlessly integrated options such as mobile phones and satellite navigation have become. This car at one time had a mobile phone installed as we can see from the receiver on the dashboard and extra antenna on the rear decklid. Hopefully if these features, if removed, don’t leave too many marks or errant holes. I used to dream about the day I could go cruising around in a black W126 of my own. These were cars that just embodied everything I’ve always loved about Mercedes-Benz. Thankfully prices for good ones are still holding at a reasonable level.

The seller seems to think that this car might require a little bit of investment to become a “remarkable” car. It would have been nice if the deficiencies were listed, but it appears, at least, that the self-leveling rear suspension is in working order, as the car is sitting fairly level. If no engine or electrical gremlins lurk beneath the surface and all that is needed is a bit of cosmetic freshening, this 560SEL in a desirable color combination would be a great collectable for the S class enthusiast.

  1. Rare black interior is spectacular looking. Wouldn’t mind spending several hours of a long winter drive in there.
