1990 Mercedes-Benz S-Class 420 SEL Description

Selling 1990 Mercedes-Benz 420 SEL with rare AMG Front chin spoiler, European bumper and headlights, AMG Rear spoiler and ///AMG badges.
** This is not a real AMG Mercedes, and does not include paperwork from AMG **
Getting into the particulars of the vehicle, it's a good running and driving Mercedes Benz 420 SEL with some Genuine AMG parts thrown into the mix to add that extra wow factor. The great part about it is you can drive this representation for a fraction of the cost without any guilt. It's a cruiser, something to improve on and make your own. It's a great start for someone looking for that driver as the black leather interior has been kept in excellent condition by the tinted windows and factory rear power sunshade. The carpet is in good condition with only slight fading of the instruments and dash wood trim that could easily be polished out. There has been a professional repair to the left drivers side interior door panel that almost blends seamlessly. The seats are firm, and the fronts have power memory controls with the rare orthopedic controls to increase comfort. The air conditioning blows cold and works well always, the heater blows hot but does at times cool under hard acceleration until fully warmed up. The wipers work and this vehicle has heated side view mirrors, spray nozzles and windshield washer tank. All lights work including turn signals, brake lights, fog lights, marker lights, and third brake light. All of the power seats and controls work, it has dual air bags and a functional massive moon roof. It also has the rear power sunshade however it only raises by itself, as you must manually lower it. Has working power antenna with Pioneer AM/FM/ CD player with 3.5 aux port.
The powertrain runs out smooth and it shifts nice into all gears including reverse without issue. The engine bay is clean and is only in need of nothing at this time. Newer fuel distributor and EHA valve with K&N air filter installed. Tires are Pirelli and have wear on the inside edges on all four tires due to the fact the vehicle is lowered and has that cambered in look. I purchased the car lowered this way and wasn't sure about it, so I have a set of factory springs I am including incase you want to change it back to stock. The front end is worn, but not loose. I'd recommend ball joints if you changed out the springs. Car is fun to drive.
The exterior body is in pretty good shape. Original paint on the body but the AMG bumper is flaking as shown in the photos. There are also a few rust spots here and there on the body such as the front lower part of the fender and one on the back deck lid area that have been treated that were the size of a quarter, but clean underneath and everywhere else. Has a few dings, no real dents but a few scuffs here and there that always fade away with a little polish. If you keep it waxed it looks good, even up close. It's black, so obviously this will be a constant effort to keep in such a state while driving daily.
I hope all of this best explains everything and I welcome anyone to come view and drive the vehicle prior to purchase as the vehicle is being sold AS-IS, no refunds and all sales final. This is considered a classic and can be plated and insured as such in the state of Michigan, you'll have to check with you state for classic car eligibility but this can save a lot of money on plates and insurance as the car sold new for almost $60,000! I only mention the MSRP because in this state they use MSRP to determine registration fees, regardless the age! This is why classic plates can save you big bucks with these upscale luxury cars. Vehicle is 27 years young and qualifies as a classic.
Please feel free send any and all questions. I am available at most hours of the day to take calls or schedule appointments for you to inspect and drive the vehicle. Delivery and or pickup of the vehicle is the buyers responsibility.
