While 1990 ushered in a new SL roadster, the S-class sedan and SEC coupe would hang on for another two years before their replacements arrived. Considering all generations of S-class over the last 40 years, the W126/C126 is perhaps one of the most timeless. As with every new generation of Mercedes-Benz, new technologies became available and integrated bumpers eliminated the bad proportions which we saw during the crash bumper era of the 1970s. Toward the end, these cars were still a formidable opponent in the luxury class war, standing up in performance and luxury even against some new competition from Japan. This 560SEC for sale in California looks smart in black over palomino livery and has covered less than 80,000 miles in its lifetime.

We’ve seen a few clean 560SECs sell over the past for years, with most hovering in the $15,000 to $20,000 range. Considering this one has a well documented history with proper servicing, the price is right in line with the current market. As much as I love the R107 SL, every time I see one of these late C126 coupes in mint condition it has me rethinking what my favorite Mercedes might be. Looking at the current lineup of Mercedes with their excess of chrome trim and wild styling, I’ll go the classic route every day.
