This is an amazing and simply gorgeous condition Mercedes 450 SEL that sat in storage for the last 15 years. Finished in Anthracite Grey with black leather interior there is virtually nothing on this example that is not simply immaculate. The best way to describe this S-class is to pretend you are in 1980 and you are buying a well-kept certified 1976 Mercedes from the authorised dealer.  Even though this was a Wisconsin car its whole life, the underside of the car is clean as a whistle. Absolutely without a spec of rust anywhere. Please review the underside pictures to see just how clean this S class is.  The car was owned by 2 meticulous owners who, clearly, used it in clear, warm weather only. When I got the car, we rebuilt the fuel distributor and she fired up like she was started only the week before. I am assuming this was the reason the car was originally “parked”. From the moment we started her, everything worked. Even the A/C started blowing cold air! Notwithstanding, we went right thru the car, updating all services. Everything works as it should and as pictures show, is in immaculate presentation. Mechanically the car is fantastic with no known issues. Just a quick look under the hood is testament to how well this Mercedes was maintained. The mileage of 83,400 is not verifiable but clearly from the condition of the car there can be no question of accuracy. In fact, if someone was to say it had only 40,000 miles, you would most certainly believe it! All features and functions work as they should; electric windows, door locks,  antenna, original Becker radio, A/C, heater, interior and exterior lights, horn…. the complete list (mind you, the clock has a mind of its own and works when it wants to. Repair is about $200). The car has Euro spec headlights fitted because I deem the US spec ones as simply ugly and beyond redemption!
