If you are a Mercedes Expert...pass over this paragraph.
If you've been looking for a R107 560 or a W126 560 they share the same engine and both vehicle really share the sameinherent issues. These are some of the best built cars ever, reliable, durable, rugged, quick, smooth...any really have a lot of class! Now, they are not without fault. Truly, theAchilles heel of these engines is the timing chain and timing chain rails. Regardless of miles, thetiming chain guides are made of plastic and with the youngest examples approaches 30 years old...they are all becoming time bombs. These engines are interference, and well, when one of those guides breaks...and they all break with regular use, you can send your engine to the recycling yard. It blows my mind that there are so many "time bombs" driving around and being sold on eBay. It's a very straightforward fix. Replace the chain and guides with updated units, and they are bulletproof. The problem lies in the fact that most owners see these cars as "they run fine" so leave them alone. Please, if you are in the market for one of these cars, do yourself a favor and buy one that has some paperwork that this $2,500 repair was done, or at least budget that into your cost when considering one.
Aside from that, please...do aCarfax report, these odometers are notoriously unreliable and make sure you have a nice linearaggregation of miles. Secondly, maintenance records arenice to have to back up that aggregation. Moreover, these cars came with a "maintenance book" that should be stamped...with the service and servicing Dealer...make sure you have that.
Alright...now on to this car!
1989 Mercedes 560SEC, 100% original paint, no accidents,garage kept, non smoker car. The exterior is a very rare "Green BluePoly" which cleans up great for being 30 years old. No clearcoat or corrosion issues.
Interior is also excellent for a 89K mile car, no tears, rips, excellent veneers, no tacky aftermarket stereo systems, stained carpets, ect. The floor mats are the originals, with some superficial staining.
Engine runs great, recently serviced with a new radiator, timing chain, guides, front seal, ect. Trans was recently serviced as well. Brakes were rebuilt as well in the last few years. About $4,000 invested in bringing this car up to "drive anywhere" without worry status. Battery is new OEM Mercedes.
I have the 3 original keys, stamped maintenance book, (no window sticker). Car was originally from CA, Spent the past 27 years in OH then to IL
