1985 Mercedes-Benz 500 SEL

Price: USD $9,950

Mileage: 93,430
1985 Mercedes-Benz 500SEL W126 Sedan (VIN: WDBCA37D9FA182299), anthracite grey met / light grey leather interior, 4-spd auto trans, 93,430 original 1-family miles. It's hard to imagine a 1980s car that was better-built and more over-engineered than the majestic W126. Its one of the last true hand built Mercedes-Benz sedans. Introduced in 1980, 1985 was the last year this car was available for the U.S. market, but continued in Europe until 1991. This 500 SEL was built in 07/1985 and was purchased new in New Jersey by Don and Kim Mattingly on 09/25/1985. This was the same year that Don won the AL MVP award. It is in excellent condition inside and out and the CarFax shows no accidents. It was owned by Don until 08/11/2009 when ownership was transferred to his son Taylor, at 85,190 miles. The car was driven by his son from then until about 3 years ago when he started driving a Suburban and the Mercedes was parked and used only on special occasions. In the Fall of 2017 we retrieved the car from their car barn and sent it to local marque specialist Foreign Performance where the fuel was drained from the tank and the car was completely inspected and serviced, incl. a new water pump, belts, hoses, etc. We brought it back to our shop and installed a new set of Michelin tires and completely detailed this W126 inside and out. The car is pretty much stock except for a set of aftermarket chrome 16 rims, it has been lowered to Euro ride height and has a cat-back dual exhaust system installed. It runs and drives very well and is cosmetically excellent! If you are a baseball fan the new owner can receive some autographed items from Don, a photo of him with the car, etc. Overall an extremely nice example of a W126 with low original mileage and 1-family sports celebrity ownership. Asking $9,950.00 / obo.
