1988 Mercedes 420SE Auto

Classic cars sold: 1988 Mercedes 420 Auto. We have available a truly exceptional example of the iconic Mercedes-Benz W126 series. Our 1988 420 model boasts a seriously impressive Mercedes service and maintenance schedule with only 3 previous owners, 2 of which were the same person!

First introduced in September 1979, the W126 succeeded the earlier W116 line, and the second generation to officially bear the S-Class name. The W126 was initially offered in straight-6 V8, and turbo diesel saloon models. In September 1981, 2-door Coupe versions (C126) was introduced. In 1981, the Coupe version C126 SEC, was introduced with the 500 SEC model. The W126 had a twelve year production run between 1979 and 1991, the longest of any S-Class generation since the flagship models were first built in the mid 1950s.

Our car is a very impressive example, finished in Maroon with grey interior. Supplied new by Gerard Mann of Birmingham to a Mr Robert Taylor, who kept the car right up to 2015 (also registered in his company name) and only one subsequent owner. Having covered just 116,000 miles the car drives perfectly with super smooth ride and gear change. The car’s maroon paintwork is excellent for its age and the interior is very clean. It is evident that the car has been very well cared for and inside, it even comes with the original over mats still in situ. The maintenance history is impressive, with 24 stamps in the original service book, half of which were carried out by the same Mercedes dealership. The file is beautifully presented with a large collection of old MOT’s, invoices, hand written time-lines, original manuals and even the original Pre-Delivery Check Sheet from Gerard Mann.

The classic Mercedes have always been desirable with collectors and enthusiasts and this particular model represents Mercedes-Benz at their very best.
