Vehicle Description

This car is very special in several ways. It is a two owner car which has lived a very pampered life. This car is a very low production vehicle with only 5800 built worldwide in 1984. It also had a MSRP of over $60,000 when new and is fully loaded! This was THE big boy car to own in the 80's.

As Per US regulations, this car has a European 17 digit VIN, which their system does not recognize. It is as follows: WDB1260441A173203 and has been fully federalized, can be registered in all 50-states, and has a clean re-assignable Arizona title. This car was imported from Europe BRAND NEW in 1984 by original owner Samon Shaheri. This 500SEC was put through all US DOT regulations and rules. This car was his pride and joy and always received the best care and service. He sold the car to a close personal friend in 2001 who continued to show the love and care to this special car. Don't miss your chance to own the nicest SEC offered in a long time!

The body on the car is in very good condition and was extremely well maintained. The paint on the car is finished in its original color of Brilliant and is in very good condition and has had one high quality repaint in its life. The car has been completely inspected underneath from front to back and is solid as a rock as any well cared for garaged car should be. All chrome trim, glass, and rubber seals are in great shape. The car looks as nice as the day it rolled off the Mercedes lot. It just had a full detail done at a cost of over $500 so this car looks spectacular! The car is accented by a high dollar set of period correct AMG chrome wheels. They are wrapped in like new Performance Radials.

The interior is in very nice restored condition all around. The original cloth interior was recently upgraded to two-tone leatherette sport pattern. The carpets are all very nice are not worn or damaged. All dials and controls function as they should, power windows and antenna also are fully functional. The sound system is also very nice with the upgraded Kenwood sound system. All lights, gauges switches, and accessories work as they should. The trunk compartment is very clean and does have the original jack and the ORIGINAL spare tire and wheel. This car is all there and in excellent shape with all functions and accessories working as they should.

Mechanically, this SEC runs GREAT! I have owned nearly 20 80's and 90's era Mercedes vehicles, and this car blows the doors off all of them! The car starts right up and shifts smooth as silk. It drives as good now as the day it rolled of the lot. The V8
engine is very quick and responsive. It is reliable, easy to fix, and parts are readily available. The 5.0L V8 has been Mercedes workhorse engine for nearly 30 years, so you know it is just plain reliable. The suspension is very tight and feels solid even at autobahn speeds above 90mph, and is claimed to have a top speed of 140 MPH! The car was always regularly serviced every 4,000 miles and shows it in how flawless the car drives. The car is tight and right as any low mileage car should be with no current mechanical issues.

All in all, this is THE cleanest and nicest SEC that I have had the privilege of being associated with. It has been professionally maintained and truly loved by its previous owners. This Mercedes is a fantastic car for the price and includes every option offered in this car. Any further questions please call Jon at 480-703-2337. The car is located in Sunny Tempe, Arizona.
