1990 Mercedes-Benz 560SEC with 29k miles


The R107 SL was the icon of a generation for Mercedes-Benz. Introduced in 1972, it’s popularity was such that it carried on strong through the end of the 1980s, bringing with it popularity that it’s larger sibling, the C126 SEC just couldn’t match. The SEC was released as a replacement for the R107 based SLC hardtop, which brought the big four place Mercedes coupe within the design language of the newly released W126 S class sedan. AMG would have their way with the SEC throughout the years, creating some really butch looking variants designed specifically for left lane Autobahn antics. The SEC would carry on until 1991, when the larger W140 based SEC would appear, bringing with it design details that were a bit more brutal in nature.

Towards the end of the run, the C126 SEC came equipped with the same 5.6 liter V8 as seen under the hood of the 560SL and 560SEL, but this two-door pillarless coupe would turn out to be the road less traveled for the high end Mercedes customer. Restrained styling, smooth power and impeccable build quality were the order of the day. These cars have a look that doesn’t look terribly outdated today, which is not something you can say for many vehicles from the 1980s. This second to last year 560SEC for sale in New Jersey is one of the lowest mileage examples we’ve seen here at GCFSB with an asking price that is sure to raise a few eyebrows.

This is a stunning 1990 Mercedes 560 SEC Coupe. It has only 29,219 miles on it. This car is just out of a collection from California. It is a piece of jewelry. This is the second to last year for the 126 chassis coupe. White is the best color for this car. These cars are becoming very scarce. They are appreciating every month. This is one of the best ones you will find. It runs and drives as new. Please read my feedback and call Jay for your best 201 232 4040

I’ve never seen a C126 SEC with an asking price this high, barring the best AMG examples out there or a car that might have historical significance. As nice as an SEC as this may be, this is yet another case of a car being a bit too ahead of the market. In this condition, I’d assume you could get plenty of interest around the $20,000 to $25,000 territory, as that is where the last low mileage 560SECs that we featured last year wound up selling for. In fact, back in September, we featured a similar 1991 560SEC with just over 47,000 miles that sold for $16,600. The market since then has not shot up that much for these coupes. And that, frankly, is a good thing because it still makes good examples of these grand touring coupes accessible to collectors of more modest means.

    The price is silly but in some distant corner of my mind I can justify it that way so many other cars can’t. As Mercedes-Benz continues to move infinitely farther and father away from the Bruno Sacco era, you get a unique blend of nostalgia AND immense quality with this thing that is just nowhere else to be found. It still turns heads, commands respect and can be driven daily. Begs to be driven daily.
