The long-wheelbase body of this flagship S-class is finished in Arctic White (147) with matching lower cladding and retains its original US-market lighting and bumpers front and rear. The lights show normal fading and clouding in clear plastic areas. The sunroof shows small paint chaips along with a spot near the rear license plate that's showing minor surface rust. Features include a power-operated sunroof, headlight washers and wipers, and bright trim and badges. Wear marks on the jack-hole covers and a ding in the rear driver side door can be seen in the gallery below.
Factory 15″ Gullideckel alloy wheels are mounted with Michelin Energy MXV4 tires showing consistent dry rot and cracking. Tires will need to be replaced before driving. The car is equipped with power-assisted steering and four-wheel disc brakes.
The cabin is trimmed in Gray Leather (268) upholstery with a matching lower dashboard, door panels, and carpets. The leather wrapped steering wheel and upper dash are finished in Black. Original Burl wood trim veneer accents the dashboard, center console and door panels and shows cracking around the shifter panel veneer. Imperfections and normal wear in the cabin are highlighted in the gallery. Additional equipment includes automatic climate control, cruise control, a Becker Grand Prix AM/FM cassette stereo, power-adjustable heated front seats, heated rear seats, and power windows and locks.The original leather presents well with no tears visible. The Becker head unit is noted as non-operational and AC will need to be recharged.
The leather-wrapped airbag steering wheel fronts VDO instrumentation consisting of a 170-mph speedometer, a tachometer with an inset analog clock, and a combination gauge indicating coolant temperature, oil pressure, instant economy, and fuel level. The six-digit odometer shows 78k original miles.
The fuel-injected 5.5-liter M117 V8 was factory rated at 238 horsepower and 288 lb-ft of torque when new. Recent service includes a fuel tank cleaning and two new fuel pumps. The seller notes this car does run but should receive a complete mechanical check before being driven on the road. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a four-speed automatic transmission.
