STUNING 1988 500 SEC - RECENT RESTORATION - £000'S SPENT SOLD
1988 MERCEDES BENZ W126 500 SEC
We are very proud to be able to offer to market this absolutely stunning w126/c126 500 sec coupe. Built in an era when a Mercedes Benz truly was something. No car since can hold a candle to the truly outstanding build quality that was evident in every Mercedes Benz of this era and none more so than the range topping SEC coupes. This is a very fine example that has just arrived in stock with us this week. Finished in period correct Signal Red with Pebble Leather ready to be enjoyed in the upcoming spring. Also comes with some very choice options including limited slip diff, electric sunroof and factory air conditioning.
Subject to a very costly and extensive restoration over the past few years, this car is in truly outstanding condition throughout. The bodywork has been treated to a full glass out repaint as well as a cavity wax/underseal at the same time so as to preserve its wonderful current condition for the future (I have photographs documenting this) . There is quite simply no marks, rust or corrosion on this car and no pitting to the brightwork either.
As you would expect with such a beautiful condition vehicle it has the service history to match and to also warrant its genuine 118000 miles from new.

TEST DRIVE/MECHANICAL CONDITION:
I have conducted an hour long test drive in the car since it arrived yesterday. It drives absolutely wonderfully as you would expect (save for a slightly crackly reception on the radio which I will attend to). It is everything you expect of a Mercedes benz of this era. Everything works and there are no creaks/rattles or issues that were apparent to me.
C126's are excellent purchases currently with 80's and 90's Mercedes of all descriptions faring very well over the last 12 months, none more so than the large engined car's (500's and 560's ) in both c/w126 and r107 format.
This is a car that can be enjoyed safe in the knowledge that a huge sum has been invested in it already to get it in to the best possible condition and will just require standard regular maintenance
