Texas Classic Cars of Dallas is proud to offer this classic flagship Mercedes-Benz, the 1984 500SEL Sedan. We have a portfolio of maintenance records dating back to 1986 to current along with the window sticker & Mercedes Benz' 1984 book detailing the various models and options. This luxurious car is showing just over 220,000 miles and is still a pleasure to drive. These cars are quite reliable and this one is no different thanks to meticulous care & service over the years.
A well cared for example, this car was sold new in San Jose, California for just over $52,000 in 1984 dollars. We have receipts for thousands spent in maintenance through the years. The most recent work performed includes brake service & replacement and new Michelin tires installed 4,000 miles ago with verifying receipts. The transmission was also serviced at that time. The engine has been checked and given a mild tune up with new spark plugs and the throttle body serviced, all work performed in late 2013-14. The photographs were largely taken at the Dallas Love Field Frontiers of Flight Museum, located only minutes from Texas Classic Cars of Dallas' showroom. Be sure to visit our friends at the Flight Museum should you find yourself in Dallas, Texas.
This long wheel base Mercedes provides plenty of room for passengers front to back. The glass is tinted all around and the power windows are functional. The driver's rear bumper and quarter panel show minor damage, photographed above. The interior showcases the original black leather upholstery, in good condition throughout with some fade and wear from age, mainly on the driver's seat, altogether very presentable and serviceable.
The dash displays all original instrumentation including the Becker Grand Prix AM/FM Cassette stereo, There are two hairline cracks on the dash, near each speaker cover. The front and back seat upholstery shows well. Again, there is plenty of room for all passengers. Under the hood is the factory 5.0 liter V8 engine. This example runs out strong, paired with the 3-speed automatic transmission. Recent work performed includes replaced spark plugs, replaced front shocks and transmission service - filter & fluid replacement. The engine underhood insulation is missing. The engine itself features factory components and has been very well maintained. The engine compartment is in good condition, displaying original decals and marks along with the original sheetmetal throughout.
The door panels are in good condition and the door undersides are solid throughout. The trunk is clean and detailed, complete with the spare tire, wheel and jacking equipment. The front shocks were recently replaced. The factory chromed wheels are fitted with nice Michelin Primacy MXV4 all-season radial tires all around (205/65R15s) This Mercedes is excellent daily or weekend transportation
