Here’s a W126 we’ve had both the pleasure and privilege of seeing in person and we can say with confidence, this is how a 560SEC should be brought to market. It can be found here on Bring a Trailer with a just over a day left under auction. The car is located in Atlanta, Georgia and is offered with solid maintenance and provenance.
This 1986 560SEC is a two owner example having parted ways with the original family in 2016. It shows only 87k miles on the clock and the full set of books, keys, tool kit, and even the original spare tire are included. If that isn’t enough to tempt someone, all the original glass remains intact as well.
Finished in Black Pearl Metallic (199) this SEC sports a sharp Palomino interior swapped from the original grey leather in early 2020. We were able to see this swap take place and we can say between the owner and Blue Ridge MB, every nut and bolt are torqued to exact spec in this car. In fact, Take a look at the long list of maintenance items below and it’s easy to see just how meticulously this car has been kept and maintained. All the work was performed by Blue Ridge MB, just outside of Atlanta, GA.
While the car is the star of this listing, sometimes the technician, shop, or team behind the success of the vehicle needs to be addressed. It's not often you come across a car like this that's been breathed on so heavily by Blue Ridge MB. When these cars do pop up on the public market, pay attention because they're all going to be about as good as it gets.
It’s typical we take the time to make suppositions about the listings we find but given this cars ownership, history, and extensive maintenance list we'd rather say check out the listing, the photos, and let us know what you think this car will sell for.
