420 SEL and ABS brakes

Did the 420's come with ABS brakes or was it optional???

Actually, model year '86 was the first year for the 420SEL in the US; the M-B website only has full specs back to '88, so I do not have official confirmation that the pre-'88 cars (i.e., '86 and '87 models)had ABS, but I would suspect they did.

look a couple of messages up for the link (that puts you into the 420SEL) -- once you're in the site you can maneuver around to other years and models

My 85 500SEL (US) has ABS, which was the precursor to the 420/560 engines in the states.
