Item:283827932227One of the most important factors to consider when buying a classic car is to make sure it is in good condition, free from rust and mechanically sound, the issue is that some very poor-quality cars are priced at the same as a perfect car and without good inspection or proof to know the difference you can end up with a car that will need a lot of money to be spent on it to make it good, everyone knows the saying; you can’t shine a turd, a crap car will always remain a crap car no matter how much money you spend, the simple key is buy a good car from the outset. This car is Mint and will be hard to find a similar car. Nine years ago, I was in the same position and it took me almost two years before I found this vehicle which I purchased from a car dealer in Wales, I had it fully tested and proof from a BIMTA AA inspection was provided to show that the mileage was correct, this reflected the immaculate condition of the car inside and out. This left-hand drive car was manufactured in 1986 and delivered in Arctic white, imported from Japan about ten years ago from the original owner who was a car collector who used it only for special visits. Being an enthusiast I set about improving whatever I could to make this car in to a show car. Engine / Gearbox The 5.5 V8 engine was fully serviced and runs perfectly, starts immediately. There is more than enough power to spin the wheels at take-off. The gearbox had a full Pan off service with all filters changed to make sure it remained reliable. For those who know about these cars, this one still has the original under bonnet foam still in immaculate condition. Bodywork / Wheels / Suspension / Exhaust This beautiful 560SEC is finished in Arctic white paintwork on absolute laser straight unmarked body. The body was re-painted by Auto Body Technic at considerable expense about 5 years ago and remains unmarked and impeccable with a glossy shine that is breath-taking and impressive, it really is an outstanding one of a kind example. The wheels were replaced to enhance the look, they are now 3 piece AMG rims with Gold studs which were fully refurbished and cracks free, another example of its condition, a new set of low profile tyres installed to enhance the stance. The suspension was upgraded to improve the drive ability and stability. As this car was purchased for life long ownership I even had the anti-roll bar and suspension bushes changed which are extremely expensive to have changed. The vehicle has a full manifold back stainless-steel exhaust system built for performance and delivers the most beautiful deep sound enhancing the driving experience. Interior The vehicle came with the original blue interior which I had completely re-upholstered at considerable expense in white leather seats contrasting the blue sections, the sound system was upgraded with Kicker speaker system which has 16 speakers. The door cards had custom built speaker pods made to give an OEM look. As you can see from the pictures it is extremely impressive. The AMG steering wheel is another rare item and has been re-upholstered in matching white with blue cross stitching. Underside This is what sets this car apart from all others it is totally rust free, yes, rust free, I had the under arches wiped clean and was amazed at the condition of the original protective coating which is all intact this alone is a reflection of how well kept this car is. A new fuel pump was also replaced, no expense was spared. Summary This is an excellent one of a kind example of a low mileage car which had done only 89000Km (55,000 miles from new), original parts that were removed will also be provided with the car, this includes, wheels/tyres, interior parts, self-levelling pneumatic suspension are also available to go with the car should you want to put back to stock. It will be sold with an up to date MOT, as it has been in dry storage with a SORN certificate. I welcome any inspection and if assistance is required to ship the car abroad. I have the original hand book, service record and other documents too. The car has been priced to sell but even in the last ten years I have not found a better example and would go as far as to say this is the best rust free immaculate car I have ever seen. I have lots of higher quality pictures which I can email a link to view to serious buyer, better still call me to arrange viewing. Serious buyers can contact me for further information, I can also send you a link to view high quality images. The car is based near Heathrow airport and priced to sell and ready to drive as a show car.Condition:Used, Model:560 SEC, Colour:White, Drive Side:Left-hand drive, Country/Region of Manufacture:Germany, In-Car Audio:AM/FM Stereo, Interior/Comfort Options:Air Conditioning, Service History Available:Yes, Fuel:Petrol, Year:1986, Exterior:Alloy Wheels, V5 Registration Document:Present, Manufacturer:Mercedes-Benz, Transmission:Automatic, Doors:2, Mileage:55000, Seats:5, Previous owners (excl. current):1, Body Type:Coupe
