This fine lady is a 1987 Mercedes 420SEL V8 with automatic transmission and power everything. The interior is nearly flawless. showing only regular wear. but with essentially intact seats and upholstery. She was originally owned by famed Oscar winning actress who appeared in films like The Music Man. Oklahoma and TV series about a singing family. She belonged to the wonderful and famed lady throughout her life until I bought her and she was serviced at Hollywood Mercedes Benz. She is one of those cars where people stop you and say "nice car" or "what a classic".

Last year I replaced the engine with a newly rebuilt motor. along with water pump belts. radiator etc. so while the odometer shows around 150k. the engine only has about 30k on it (i have receipts for the installation of the new engine. ) I added high end slotted disc brakes and pads. I have all the manuals and information kits from the Hollywood showroom where she was purchased. She also has nice Michelin tires.   The only thing that does not work is the antenna. and the tach sometimes doesn't register (its an easy fix and affects nothing - after all she's and automatic - so it's just for show). As I said above. I would expect to spend around $500 to fix the small things and get her "shiney". If you wanted to go further. I would trade out the wheels.

I have a clean title and she was just inspected and registered last week so she's good until May 2017.

Keep in min this is a 30 year old car. She can be a wee bit finicky. When you hit the gas she waits for a nanosecond  then roars. with almost head snapping power. but treat her gently. This is not a car you want to take on long summer road trips across Texas. rather you want to keep her covered (I have a new car cover I am throwing in) and when its time to go to out for a night in style you bring her out. When people ask you about her - you have a story. I get nods and smiles and asked about her all the time - as will you. Just say "I call her The Shirley. "

From the books;
These luxo-cruisers from the 1980's had a very elegant body design and offered pure luxury inside the cabin and impressive performance on the road. The interior is fine leather and equipped with all luxury features from cruise control and climate control. electric: sunroof. windows. seats (also heated). locks. mirrors. antenna and rear defogger to factory 4-speaker AM- FM/cassette stereo system. alloy wheels. fog lamps and a full leather interior with polished wood dashboard and trim. Safety features include twin airbags and ABS anti-lock power disc brakes. (upgraded to slotted discs last year)

The Mercedes-Benz W126 is a series of S-Class automobile manufactured by Mercedes-Benz between 1979 and 1992. The W126 was the second generation to officially bear that prestigious designation. an abbreviation for the German Sonderklasse or "special class. " The 116. 965 engine was introduced in 1986 for the revised S-Class. It featured 9. 0:1 compression and had from 204-231 PS (150-170 kW; 201-228 hp) depending on year and export market. All engines were mated to the Mercedes-Benz 4G-Tronic transmission.

(These are real pictures of her. I them myself. )
