Completed in October 1988, WDBCA39E5KA442634 was purchased new on December 16, 1988 through Robert Schmitz European Motors (Mercedes-Benz of San Francisco) by its first only owners Mr. and Mrs. Scherer of Novato, California. The SEL would reside in Novato for the next 32+ years with selective exercise, care, and meticulous preservation as it presents today. With just 15,200 recorded miles, the Mercedes remains remarkably original throughout, including the vast majority of original Artic White paint (see paint meter readings), over Gray trim and Saffron leather upholstery. All glass retains their factory etchings, as well as radio alarm warning decals on the rear quarters. In fact, ALL factory placed decals, plaques and VIN stickers remain adhered to the designated areas of the vehicle.

The cabin displays supple factory seating paired to immaculate carpeting and upholstery. All electronic equipment appear to be in proper working order, including the instruments, courtesy lights, safety restraints, electric steering column, mirrors, sunroof, heated seats, and much more. The experts at Becker Autosound performed a 2021 restoration of the car's original Becker Grand Prix radio. Above the rear seat, an untouched first aid kit is stored within the rear parcel shelf. Driver and passenger's airbags were replaced by Mercedes-Benz in December 1998. All floor mats and optional rear footrests remain fitted. A period cellphone mount and antenna complement.

Both the engine and luggage compartments appear orderly, unmodified and exceptionally clean with correct and almost entirely factory installed original equipment. Original hoses, Continental belts, clamps, markings, and auxiliary details are photographed. A new Mercedes-Benz hood pad has been installed, as well as a new battery.

An original spare wheel assembly is neatly stowed the rear, along with a tool roll, jack, an original tire replacement instructional tag, and VIN decals. Likewise, the 560's underside displays original Cosmoline, markings, zinc coatings, exhaust, PAPER identification decals and components. It is of note the car still rides on its factory original 205/65VR15 Michelin MVX (West German manufactured) tires, dated 1988. An unremarkable preservation throughout.

In addition to the aforementioned emergency equipment, the 560 SEL is complete with what appears to be all original matching owner's books, DataCard, pamphlets, cards, keys and manuals in vinyl folio, clean Carfax and AutoCheck reports. This spectacular one-owner, low mileage, and preserved W126 surely represents one of the finest examples of this grandeur and iconic model.
