Question To good to be true? But, I've driven it!

'88 560SEC, US model, Black on Black, 172K, looks really good to me, overall: sunroof works, power windows too, the interior (leather & carpets) are very nice, paint is nice, body does indicate some repaint was done, perfect W8 style chrome wheels, very decent tires, good oil pressure, drives straight and true, shifts are very sharp &clean, starts right up, idles smoothly... Quiet, no rattles, clunks! or thumps! FAST.

In an independant ( I feel VERY reputable) MB-ONLY shop for A/C work: I believe them when they say it works OK, but they think it is just losing some R-12 from a suspected leak...

Owner (multiple MB & other cars) is asking $7,500.00 ??????????????????????????

I really don't need another car (much less another W126) but...

This is less than what the OPTIONS & the Gas Guzzler Tax & Destination charges are on the CLK500 in the December Road & Track!!!!!!!!!!!!

HELP ME!

Thumbs up Rails & Chain done?

Yep! At this shop, probably within the year...

Plates are good until October, too.

sounds like a nice car, good price, good indication of maintenance, and it dirves great? If I had $7500 laying around I'd but it. Always wanted an SEC, but chose the 300CE as my first benz.

"I see a benz..." CORRECT

"a Yamaha..." ? No, an XS-11 is an '80's Yamaha, a ZX-11D is a '93-'01 Kawasaki 1100cc 176mph Rocketship!

"a Subaru, two fords..." Well, an '84 Town Car was (still) the Lincoln product exclusively, vs. the Crown Vic=Town Car of the latter years. It had a EFI 302 with EEC IV Ignition, 4-speed AOD , really pretty modern for that era coming from the Big 3...

"and the last one's tough. A Kawasaki?" Yep! 1974 H2, 750cc 2-stroke Triple a.k.a. Mach IV
