1990 benz price catalogue

Hey, i thought i would post this up and add it to our benz catalogue libary ( if there is even one)
Its a Canadian 1990 pricing booklet for all models of the 1990 year

This book has a interesting story because it was in a car i didnt really want to buy, but once i saw the car i couldnt let anyone else have it.

One of my good friends his brother in law unfortunetly passed away, and his wife began getting rid of his assets. My friend new i was a super duper car guy and wanted to know if i was interested in his brothers benz. I told him i wasnt interested in it but i would come by and do a once over for him so he knew what he was selling. One weekend i pull into his driveway, and there sat a absoulety mint black on grey trim with palomino/tobacco? Interrior 1990 560 sel. I though my 420 was in decent shape, this car took the words "fantastic shape" to the next level. So after a quick spin around the car i dug into the golve box. It was FULL of mb goodies! All service records from new up to its current 360,000km, original manuals, and this awesome price book. He told me his brother bought it new in 1990, and loved the car every day hew owned it. Never winter driven, always mb service and parts. And this car showed it!

So after he told me what his sister wanted for it, i didnt even second guess it. The car was mine.
Now theres a long story about this car ( a good government political story behind it)
Heres the cool tidbit. I suppose when MB canada back in the day sold cars they transfered the car into mb canadas name as the inital owner/importer, then into the buyers name. Well looks like my friends brother never went thru and transfered it into his name, i dunno how this happened... Soo i am actually the first documented owner of this car.

Heres some book pics

$120,000k for 560 sec .. Ouch! In the 90's
He paied the full pop 108,000k$ for the sel with a few goodies added ontop of that

Finding old documents on marketing and sales of cars are always fun to read. Thanks for the great pics and write-up.
