This 1988 Mercedes-Benz 420SEL is finished in Arctic White (147) over Royal Blue (272) leather and powered by a 4.2-liter V8 paired with a four-speed automatic transmission. The car has been registered exclusively in Massachusetts since new, prior to the selling dealer’s acquisition in June 2021. Features include a sunroof, automatic climate control, a Continental headunit with Bluetooth capability, power accessories, headlamp washers, disc brakes, and 15″ wheels. Service performed in preparation for the sale included an oil change as well as replacement of the washer fluid reservoir and check valve. This W126 shows 78k miles and is offered with a clean Carfax report and a clean Pennsylvania title.
The long wheelbase body is finished in Arctic White (147) with gray lower cladding and features an electric sunroof with tilt function, an automatic antenna, chrome trim, and headlamp washers. The rear glass remains free from any signs of delamination and a black pinstripe adorns the body line on each side. Photos showing a paint chip below the right headlamp as well as bubbling near the tail lights are provided in the gallery.
Silver 15″ Gullideckel wheels show some paint chipping and minor curb rash and are mounted with 205/65 Pirelli P4 tires. Stopping power is provided by discs stationed at all four corners.
The cabin is upholstered in Royal Blue leather (272) with matching doorcards, dash, center armrest, and carpets. Wood trim adorns the dash, console, and door panels and remains original to the car. Amenities include power-adjustable front seats with position memory, automatic climate control, cruise control, an analog clock, power accessories, a Continental stereo with USB and Bluetooth connectivity, and a K40 radar detector.
A four-spoke airbag steering wheel frames VDO instrumentation including a 160-mph speedometer and a tachometer with a 6k-rpm redline. Additional guages for fuel level, oil pressure, coolant temperature, and instant economy are also present. The six-digit mechanical odometer shows 78k miles, a handful of which have been added by the selling dealer.
The 4.2-liter M116 V8 sends power to the rear wheels through a four-speed automatic transmission. Service performed in preparation for the sale included an oil change as well as replacement of the washer fluid reservoir and check valve.
Additional photos showing of the underbody are presented in the gallery.
