1983 Mercedes-Benz 500SE

Motorcar Studio is pleased to offer this 1983 Mercedes-Benz W126 500SE. This is a European-market example that was sold new in Mannheim, Germany and imported to the U.S. in 1986 where it lived in dry Scottsdale, Arizona, until coming to Georgia last year.

In North America in the early 1980s, your only options for a short-wheelbase S class were the anemic 380SE or 300SD models -- this example with its 5.0 liter, 230 hp V8 was quite the hotrod in comparison. Fortunately this car retained its European headlights and bumpers when it was federalized. Finished in code 473 Champagne Metallic over Brazil Scala upholstery, this car is still wearing mostly original paint (with only very light clear coat fading on the hood and truck). Excellent original underside with no known rust issues.

This is an unusually well-optioned car that remains in largely original and unmolested condition; it was ordered with heated orthopedic seats and air conditioning. The interior is well preserved with an excellent dash, headliner, door cards, original Becker radio, nice wood, original fire extinguisher and first aid kit. There is some wear on the driver's seat; attractive brown sheepskin covers are included.

Service within the last few years has included Michelin tires, suspension bushings and exhaust. It runs and drives well with cold A/C and has made multiple long-distance highway trips recently without complaint. Owner's manual, tool roll and warning triangle are included. For more information about this 1983 Mercedes-Benz 500SE for sale at Motorcar Studio in Atlanta, please call 404-692-5250.
