Any discussion of personal luxury coupes from the late 1980’s and early 1990’s would be incomplete without including the Mercedes Benz 560 SEC. The W126 series chassis was introduced for the 1979 model year, with the coupe debuting in September 1981 for the 1982 model year. A variety of drivetrain options were available, including six cylinder and eight cylinder gas engines, six cylinder diesel engines, automatic transmission and four-speed and five-speed manual transmissions.
This excellent, low-mileage 1986 Mercedes Benz 560SEC represents the first year of the second series of the model. The car was first owned in Florida, and it spent time in Arizona, Wisconsin, Illinois, and New York prior to its acquisition by the selling dealer in April 2019. Finished in black livery and grey lower body cladding with a tan leather interior, the car presents nicely with no evidence of rust. Power is derived from a 5.5L gasoline V8 backed with a four speed automatic transmission. All of the power accessories one would expect from a luxury car are present, including a power retractable sunroof. Safety features include a driver’s airbag.
All mechanical systems and instrumentation appear to be in good working order. The power retractable radio antenna is stuck in the “up” position. The car is in overall excellent condition for a 35 year old vehicle and drives out as one would expect from a luxury vehicle of this vintage. While we believe the odometer reading of just over 36,000 miles to be correct in accordance with Missouri statutes regulating automobile dealers the car will be sold mileage exempt due to age.

Because of the number of vehicles we represent we cannot drive every vehicle for long distances. These vehicles have been part of static displays for long periods of time, in some cases for decades, and are subject to the flaws and imperfections consistent with that. While we do our best to disclose all issues we known about a vehicle in our advertising, these are old cars and something that has always worked in the past might not function properly today. Please check the requirements of your state regarding the licensing and registration of classic vehicles and make sure the vehicle you are looking at meets those if applicable. Unless otherwise noted, all vehicles represented by Evergreen Digital Showroom possess a clean (non-branded) title which will be provided the new buyer when purchase funds clear our financial institution. Virtually all our vehicles are sold as mileage exempt due to their age. We do not warranty any vehicle, nor any part of the vehicle including air conditioning systems, brake systems, electrical systems and gauges, fuel systems, accessories or powertrain components.
These are old vehicles and it is very common for them to require certain maintenance and upkeep for them to be operational. In many cases issues with leaks may develop when being driven after a long period of not being used. This is common, as classic cars at some point will leak fluids. For this reason, we do not encourage buyers to attempt driving their purchase home as we cannot guarantee functional reliability of these vehicles. We strongly encourage prospective buyers to be sure they are comfortable with these issues before purchasing a classic car.
Descriptions of vehicles represented by Evergreen Digital Showroom are intended to be informational in nature and do not in any way constitute any sort of warranty, expressed or implied. Again, these vehicles are presented “as-is, where-is” without guarantee or warranty. Vehicles manufactured prior to 1981 will likely not be included in the databases of companies such as CarFax and AutoCheck that provide vehicle history information to consumers. If you have specific questions regarding a vehicle we urge you to contact us at 417-532-8000.
