ONE FAMILY OWNED, WELL MAINTAINED, EXTREMELY CLEAN FOR AGE AND MILEAGE!
The best way to make a dramatic an entrance in the power-hungry '80s was in a Mercedes-Benz S-Class. Today a heavy hitter like this 1989 300 SEL long-wheelbase sedan is a great vintage way to still show that you're at the very top of the hierarchy. After all, a well-maintained example like this can still hammer the Autobahn all day at triple-digit speeds, coddling its occupants like no other car in the world.
Few cars have a more commanding road presence than an S-Class Mercedes, and you'll have no trouble cruising through traffic with this handsome sedan. The two-tone blue is the correct color combo, and we believe you are looking at the factory paint. It still looks great today thanks to Mercedes-Benz's exceptional engineering of their flagship sedan and careful ownership all its life. The executive-level transport has style in spades, with a formal profile and sleek lines that definitely announce that this big Benz takes no prisoners. In typical German fashion, the design is restrained and the clean lines minimize the car's size, but there's no denying that this is a lot of sheetmetal hammering down the road. A few bits of chrome, like the surround for the window opening emphasizes the car's best attributes, and there's just no mistaking the big three-pointed star up front that moves lesser traffic out of the way like a snow plow. So while you may find the occasional signs of this sedan being enjoyed as a luxury cruiser, it still knows how to make an entrance.
Inside, the S-Class got every luxury and convenience item Mercedes engineers could imagine in 1989. The power adjustable blue leather buckets are firm and supportive. Intricately stitched door panels feature a matching material, and the burled walnut here and on the center console warms it up inside nicely. Best of all the exceptional condition of the interior materials reaffirms this car's level of superior care. As a true luxury machine there are plenty of great features such as a sunroof, power locks, cruise control, the correct Becker Grand Prix AM/FM/cassette stereo, and provisions for air conditioning. Mercedes also utilized the S-Class as the showcase for their latest safety pieces, so you also get features not everyone got decades ago like the driver's airbag and anti-lock brakes. Big, clear instruments are a hallmark of M-B cars, and the whole experience behind the wheel is like piloting a first-class luxury liner.
Power comes from the original numbers-matching 3.0-liter overhead cam inline-six. It's as silky as a turbine and torquey enough to make the big sedan feel quick and light on its feet. It's also legendary for its durability, and thanks to proper maintenance throughout its life, it still fires up with the kind of vigor that makes far newer vehicles jealous. The engine bay is extremely clean and it runs with a soft purr from the exhaust that's befitting a vehicle of this stature. The four-speed automatic transmission is the perfect companion to flex its German muscles when it wants and then settle back into overdrive luxury immediately. The fully independent suspension that soaks up bumps like a hovercraft, and the iconic Mercedes-Benz alloy wheels hold touring Uniroyal radials.
Complete with maintenance records and owner's manual, this was a car designed to carry executives both in the front and back seats. So when this vintage luxury is at a mailroom prices, you know you need to act quickly. Call today!!!
