  • The Mercedes-Benz W126 was a series of flagship vehicles produced between 1979 and 1991. Previously underappreciated, these cars are now increasingly regarded as the pinnacle of Mercedes-Benz build quality. The imposing S-Class models are gaining respect and recognition among the classic car fraternity, and leading the pack is the range-topping 560 SEC produced from 1985 until 1991.

    The updated S-Class models, including the example offered here, includes electronic automatic climate control, heated seats, an electronically adjustable steering column, and leather steering-wheel and shift-lever trim, among other additions. Regarded as the ultimate luxury Mercedes-Benz of the day, it was one of the world’s most expensive cars when produced and came comprehensively equipped as standard. At the same time, coachbuilding, tuning, and a-la-carte customization had experienced a new resurgence during the eighties, particularly across continental Europe. However, a smaller group of well-heeled Americans proved just as eager to outfit their rides with one-off modifications. This 1990 560 SEC is a testament to the blank-check philosophy which endeared in-period coachbuilders to their discerning clientele.

    The magnificent 560 SEC Convertible featured here is finished in stunning Diamond Blue Metallic over Palomino leather. This incredible motorcar has been modified to convertible specifications by renowned American coachbuilding firm, R. Straman Coachworks of Costa Mesa, California at an astronomical cost! Ordered via Mercedes-Benz of Newport Beach, California, this 560 SEC was delivered directly to Richard Straman’s facilities when new. The conversion has provided this attractive S-Class with a power-retractable convertible top of matching Palomino-colored cloth, complete with a quick-snap secured cover. Single-family ownership until 2018 was recited in a private collection since.

    Incredible opportunity to acquire what we believe to be one of the very best examples of this limited production flagship Mercedes-Benz, for the most sophisticated collector, investor or enthusiast who understands and appreciates this great German classic. Classic cars have proven to be among the most resilient and rewarding investments in recent years with the Historic Automobile Group Index (HAGI) jumping 39% in 2013, 16% in 2014 and 17% in 2015 while posting gains of 467% over the last 10 years.

    Financing

    Finance rates as low as 5.9%.


    We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.


    We work closely with many banking institutions that understand and recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.


    Terms available up to 144 Months


    If you have any questions, feel free to contact us, (314)291-7000 or credit@schmitt.com
