This 1986 Mercedes-Benz 560 SEC (VIN WBCA45D2GA257242) is offered by its second owner, who reports it to be all-original with fully documented history from new. The car seems well-kept throughout as well, with a nice color combination, Euro headlignhts, and what look like period Carlsson wheels. Mileage is given as 107k, and the seller further reports that the car “runs and drives perfectly.” Find it here on eBay in Kings Park, New York with a $10,900 BIN.

There isn’t much else said in the listing’s brief description, but the car looks straight, shiny, and clean. We’re unsure of the wheel choice–they look great from some angles, while from others the front pair look to have too much offset. Euro headlights are easy to appreciate however, and otherwise the car looks to be all stock.
The interior shows well too, with very good leather and no dash cracks. Carpets look clean too, and wood trim appears to be free of cracks, fading, or tired varnish. There’s an aftermarket head unit fitted, but again, everything else looks to be factory.
Here’s a look at the back seats. All four show evidence of use in the form of some light wrinkling, but nothing approaching neglect or abuse.
There aren’t any specifics regarding upkeep, but full records from day one are on hand. It’s bone-stock looking under the hood however, and though intolerant of deferred maintenance, these cars last and last with proper care.
We miss the days when good looking W126 coupes were plentiful at $4k, but times have moved on, and prices aren’t likely to come down anytime soon. Still, $11k isn’t much considering what these over-engineered, over-built luxo-tanks went for new, and this one looks to have a lot going for it.
