1986 Mercedes 560SEL
1986 Mercedes 560SEL LWB Sedan, Fully Loaded, Reclining/Heated Rear Seat!
This week Canyon State Classics brings to market one of the best documented and best kept 1986 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL Sedans on the Planet.
This car is very special in several ways. It is a a low mileage car which has lived a very pampered life here in the dry Arizona desert shortly after being purchased in New Jersey. It also had a MSRP of over $60,000 when new and is fully loaded! This was THE big boy car to own in the 80's.
This car was bought brand new at Intercar Inc on August 29, 1986 by original owner R. Dascoli Bartholomew of New Jersey who brought it to Arizona in 2008. Included is a statement of origin detailing his ownership history on the car, which was titled in several of his business names during his ownership, which explains the car showing more owners than it actually had. This car was his pride and joy and always received the best care and service and by his own admission never saw rain or snow during his ownership. A few more owners in Florida and Washington took their turns babying the car till it made its way back here to Arizona. Don't miss your chance to own the nicest SEL offered on eBay in a long time!
The following is a list of options as this 560SEL is currently equipped:
-5.6L 8-Cyl Gasoline Engine
-4 Speed Automatic Transmission
-Ice Cold A/C
-Power Door Locks
-Heated/ Power Reclining Rear Seat
-Original Leather Interior

The body on the car is in very good condition and was extremely well maintained. The paint on the car is finished in its original color of Black and has a brilliant shine and not a ding to be found. All rock chips were professionally touched up by airbrush. The car has been completely inspected underneath from front to back and is solid as a rock and ALL ORIGINAL PAINT as any well cared for garaged lifelong car should be. All chrome trim, glass, and rubber seals are in great shape. Original windshield in chip free and has original stickers on it. The car looks as nice as the day it rolled off the Mercedes lot. It just had a full detail done at a cost of over $500 so this car looks spectacular! The car is accented by the original set of correct wheels which look great and wrapped in brand new Good Year radials.
interior is in very nice original condition all around. Its life long garage storage is obvious at close examination of the crack and fade free interior. The dash and door panels are in very nice condition with zero cracks or damage to be noted anywhere other than two small cracks on shifter console wood. The palomino leather seats are all in very good condition and look almost new, which shows the quality of leather used in this car. All wood grain is in excellent condition with only minor cracking visible around the shifter. The carpets are all very nice
are not worn or damaged. The car also has Custom Mercedes floor mats. All dials and controls function as they should, power windows and antenna also are fully functional. The sound system is
also very nice with the original Becker Grand Prix sound system. All lights,
gauges switches, and accessories work as they should. The trunk compartment is very clean and
does have the original jack, tools, and the spare tire and wheel. This car is all there and in excellent shape with all functions and accessories working as they should.
this SEL runs GREAT! I have owned nearly 20 80's and 90's era Mercedes vehicles, and this car blows the doors off all of them! The car starts right up and shifts smooth as silk. It drives as good now as the day it rolled of the lot. The 5.6L V8 is excellent. It is reliable, easy to fix, and parts are readily available. The receipts show a lot of major work done in 2008 and again at Park Place LTD in 2012 which total over $5700just spent of fuel system including new fuel distributor, new injectors/ wiring, new intake hoses, new fuel pumps,new injector covers and a full tune up. Transmission service, rear axle service, brake fluid and coolant flush, new brakes, and new Good Year tires top off the recent service! The suspension is very tight and feels solid even at autobahn speeds above 90mph. The car was always regularly serviced and shows it in how flawless the car drives. The car is tight and right as any low mileage car should be with no current mechanical issues. This car is
100% fully documented with EVERY service receipt going back to the pre-delivery paperwork from 1986!
The car will include all original books, huge stack of receipts, original spare, jack, tools, all original keys, as well as the CUSTOM 560SEL floor mats!
All in all, this is THE cleanest and nicest SEL that I have had the privilege of being associated with, and is surely the NICEST in the Country! It has been professionally maintained and truly loved by its previous owners. This Mercedes is a fantastic car for the price and includes every option offered in this car.
