Black Series 2 of 4 1984 Mercedes Benz 500SEC AMG 6.0

Part 2 of my Black Series, this 1984 Benz is the rarest of all four of my selections. This car features the high output AMG quad cam 6 liter V8 similar to the one found in the famous Hammer. What is particularly great about this 45,000 mile car is that it still has the work order with it documenting the AMG conversion. Since AMG records for cars like this are so scarce it is an added bonus to have a copy of the sales sheet.

The conversion process from plain 500SEC  happened  in 1988 at AMG Central in Westmont Illinois. This car had the stock 5.0 pulled at 15,000 miles do to a problem in favor of the big 6.0 block.  It had headers and exhaust added and a modified transmission out of a 560. The car has the 2.65 rear diff.

The engine was rebuilt under 10,000 miles ago and should be good for 400 horsepower and plenty of torque.

The buy-it-now is $30,000, but bidding is up to a reserve not met $22,000. The ask isn’t unreasonable, these are collector cars now. This car would get a little more for the seller had it not been a later conversion, but not by much as this still is a genuine period AMG vehicle not a backyard special with bolt ons.

The car comes with a lot of recent service and a very nice rating from me.

    Man, using up two AMG motors in 35,000 miles says something about AMG or the owners – not sure which.

    I was surprised at that as well. It may say something about that particular owner, since AMG engines have shown that you can hoon the hell out of them and its usually something else downstream that breaks before they do, even with significant miles.

    This car ended at $22,050 with the reserve not met. The seller is smart to hold onto the car at that price. As much as I hate to inflate values of these AMG cars as someone in the market for one, I truly believe these will become the equivalent pricewise of what the w112 and w108 Benz convertibles are seeing today.
    The seller did respond to us letting us know the original conversion work, which included a modified 5.0 was done by AMG in Germany. The work in the states added the 6.0 quad cam. Having all the history on this car really makes it more desirable.

    Relisted with a buy-it-now of $25,000.
