1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL


The Mercedes-Benz 560SEL was the definitive über sedan for more than a decade beginning in the early 1980s. They weren’t particularly eye-catching or glitzy but had a refined, tasteful appearance in a way only a classic Mercedes-Benz could pull off. With a rear seat that was almost five feet wide, passengers were treated to the utmost comfort and the driver had adequate power at his disposal with the M117 V8 under the hood. Want to look like a diplomat for a day? This 1987 560SEL in Desert Taupe for sale in Illinois is a good way to do just that. For those thinking a classic S-class in good condition with low miles is out of reach, read on.

I am a Mercedes collector and enthusiast and I looked through eBay to find a fair price for this car and boy was I amused to find finely detailed pigs in lipstick selling for 11-12K and a underused 25k mile examples for 20k plus. This car is a excellent low mileage example that has been superbly cared for and spent its’ first 13 years in Florida and the rest of its’ life in a heated Illinois garage.

This car has never been abused and still retains its’ original Becker Grand Prix cassette player which works great.

If you are looking for a perfect Carfax all original “real” 560…this is it.

Call me with any offers or questions!

I guess I am a bad salesman insofar as I use a iPhone to take pictures, pull my car out of the garage in lieu of having it detailed, ect.

However, a very honest car.


Considering where prices are trending for the R107 560SL, the ask here for this flagship sedan counterpart represents a solid value for a Mercedes of this vintage. This car has yet to cross the 60,000 mark, which is barely break in territory for a W126. You still see plenty of these S-classes on the road today so it’s encouraging to those looking for a usable classic. If this car is as described, has full records and passes a PPI inspection with flying colors, someone is going to get a deal.

    Nice! I think desert taupe works well on the W126 but not necessarily on other Benzes. I was just looking at a W201 online in this color, and I couldn’t shake the sense that it looked like turd brown on that bodyshape. But here, it really works.

    If there were no 124s to chase after I would be right after this car.

    The interior alone is sheer heaven. MB wishes it could make such an interior now.
