Mercedes 560 SEC Coupes, 6.0 AMG

Being a Mercedes guy, I’ve always liked the 560sec and its siblings of the same body style. Here are several all up right now on eBay.

The body on this one has 292,390, but it has only 50,000 since a full restoration. The ad doesn’t say much about the 6.0, but the valve covers look genuine. Seller says all the documentation from Renntech is available. Pretty subtle for having an AMG engine, transmission, headers and rear end.

Here we go, this is a GREAT opportunity. Rarely do you find a decent vehicles listed on eBay at a low opening bid AND no reserve. A 55,000 mile 560 that looks amazing up for sale with the public setting the market price. This is fantastic if it was a standard 560 SEC, but this is a grey market car with an AMG body package. So you get the nice Euro headlights and the sculpted bodywork. Don’t miss getting a bid in on this one, someone could snag a real deal if this one goes under the radar on eBay. Probably not the smartest move for me to post this here since I’ll probably throw a bid in on this myself, but I’d like to see what the market sets itself at. If this was a later model, year I’d say if it didn’t breach $10k it would be undersold.


1991 Mercedes 560SEC white
Here is a white one that the seller claims is a multiple show winner. I’m sure it is nice, but a 100,000 mile, 1991 model year car, in stock form must not have much competition in its class at whatever shows he’s entering it in. The car does look good and is nice that it has service records, but you can almost be sure that the ask for the car is going to be over priced just by the way the seller is describing it.


1986 560SEC 1 owner
I just put this one in because I always find older 1 owner cars intriguing. Being the 2nd owner on a vehicle that has a long history with its original owner can mean some neat stories and a chance to really know the car’s past. This 160k mile car is a California delivery vehicle so a buyer is going to want to look out for extra smog gear restricting the engine.

And this is for the handyman looking for a bit of a challenge. Chances are you can talk the owner down from the $1875 ask. Sadly I think you’d have to go down on price to find a taker, but then you get close to part it out territory as the parts become worth more off the car. Who wants to save this one?

  1. Great post Evan! All of these have their own appeal, but I think I’m most amazed by the one owner for $4750 — that’s a lot of car for under 5 grand! The no reserve car will be fun to watch too.

    Thanks again for all your help on this blog!

  2. The 1985 with no reserve sold at $8100. I’d say that is well bought.

  3. Wow, no kidding! Personally I’d get rid of the black-out lenses and aggressive rims — but at that price, there is lots of room to make things exactly as you want. Congrats to the new owner!

  4. Sounds about fair value to me
