Description for Mercedes-Benz 500-Series 1980

Here is a really rare optioned car. The vin# is correct but ebay wont take Euro Vin so I had to put 1980 but it is a 1983 model. It started out as a 1983 European (higher horsepower) 500sel Mercedes Benz w126. I am not sure if the AMG modifications were done in AMG Germany or AMG importer O'Gara in California. The car was done in 10/1983 and delivered to Schweinfurt Germany. It has a import tag from O'Gara Coach Company who were the major AMG early modifier. The car was supposedly owned by a celebrity who eventually kept it at his house in Arizona. The car was ordered with a TON of extra features in 1983. I think someone checked ALL the boxes. I bought it from a guy had the car for 10+ years in a stored environment. I bought it because it was RUST FREE. Being from Chicago unfortunately most of the older Mercedes have rust (many times lots of it hidden) this car is clean which is why I trekked it (yes folks I drove it almost 1300 miles ) home. I meant to restore it but I just do not have the time. I am working on a Mercedes coupe project that is taking up all my time, nd money. Th car came with some cutting edge options for 1983: electric and heated both front seats, ear back rests and headrests, lectric sliding roof, ruise control, nti lock brakes, lectronic outside mirror right side, automatic antenea, ighted vanity mirrors both sides, ir conditioning, eated rear window, url walnut root wood, nd rear mount loud speakers. The car has real AMG sideskirts, ront spoiler ( the early AMG non dogear style), t has a Lorinser glassed in rear spoiler which I had redone and have never seen another with the spoiler done like that. It has Centra body colored wheels. But the crowning piece is the power rear recaro manual seats. THEY ARE UBER RARE. They slide back and forth via the switch on the door, hey are leather look and have a middle armrest. See the pictures, his was a very custom job many unique trim pieces went into it but looks factory. The car needs work! I drove it besides the 1300 miles when I got i, aybe a couple hundred miles since then. It has lowering springs maybe H&R or non marked AMG? To fit the rear seats the wheel wells have been modified. The car has Centras rim, ut one is missing a center cap, got the correct star for it but no center cap. The car has 247K on the odometer which I was told is correct. The previous owner said the engine was rebuilt but I have no records on the car save for a german owners manual. The engine pulls well so I would believe it. The trans will need attention for although once going it is fine it lags when 1st put into reverse or drive, hich is a sign that it is nearing a rebuild. The car is as tight as my other w126 sedan with 100K so I assume the suspention has been rebuilt at some point. I don't see any major body damag, t looks as though the front drivers corner had a ding (all factory weld spots still on inner fender) and but has a crease in back by license plate like was backed into something protruding. Although in the pictures the paint looks good IT IS NOT it will need a repaint. At some points the paint is peeling, nd has cracks in it. I had someone tell me can be wet sanded off but I do not believe that. I am a member of all the AMG and Mercedes boards, am not trying to hoodwink anyone. I had intentions of stripping the whole car down for a rebuild. To me the appeal of the car is that it is rust free and that there cannot be more than a dozen of these with these options worldwide (look on google I have found only 2 showcar 500SEL's with the recaro rear seats) Questions please cal, ive close stop by take a test drive! I can take more pictures and answer any questions. Bob (630) 903-9877. Can deliver with 400 miles you pay gas both ways. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO COME OUT A SEE THE CAR FOR YOURSELF. I took these pictures last Sunday when the temperature was -10 degrees in Chicago, ook the cover off, ar fired right up I backed it out of the garage and took these pictures.
