A beautiful 420SEC finished in Smoke Silver with Mushroom leather interior. It has covered 126k miles backed up by a full service history.


First registered by Vikings of Canterbury in February 1988, this SEC was specified with air conditioning, 15-hole alloys, cruise control, electric seats and electric sunroof.


All books and manuals come with the car, plus two keys, along with a full service history, with 21 stamps in the book.


The last owner of 11 years lived between Salzburg, Austria and Bath in the UK. He used the car for driving between his homes and maintained the car exclusively with Mercedes-Benz, both in Bath and Salzburg. All of its MoT tests were also carried out by Mercedes Bath too.


There is a large folder of receipts containing all bills from MB and previous MoTs.  Recent work has included a complete new exhaust system and replacement brake calipers.


Recent MoT, HPI clear and will be serviced again by ourselves on point of sale.


The bodywork presents beautifully, the bumper chromes are unblemished and wheels unmarked, wearing matching Goodyear tyres all round.


Similarly, the interior is in very good order with beautiful leather and woodwork, plus a period correct Becker stereo. The air conditioning is blissfully cold.


The underside of the car is in superb order, being free from corrosion and any previous repairs.


Thanks to the last owner’s long distance use and thorough maintenance, this is a well-sorted SEC that drives beautifully and looks glorious. What better car for long trips across Europe?
