Not too often you see the CL / S600 come up in this sort of condition, with only 36,550 miles on the clock. Immaculate in and out, we spotted this one on ebay USA in October 2019. A real museum piece and future classic for sure. The last of the Bruno Sacco Benz cars. The seller made the following comments at the time of sale, asking $26,000 USD:
"Mercedes 1996 S600 Mint original, garage kept, 36,000 miles. Concours condition, no dust on car, inside , or engine.1 of a kind condition, everything works. Serviced and kept in great condition"
This one was spotted on Craiogslist.com in October 2019, and is in a very sad state. One of only 8,500 Bertone designed cars built, the majority of which were sold in the USA. The Bertone 780 is a substantial advancement from the earlier Bertone Volvo Coupes built on the 240 series chassis - and in my opinion is a very refined looking coupr for its time, blending in well with other European coupes of the time. Let's hope this one finds a loving new home and has a bit of trim work done.
Lovely combination, this rare 420 SEC is finished in white with contrasting red cloth interior. This example was spotted for sale on trademe.co.nz in Sep 2019, and seems to be a well looked after example with (relatively) low ks. The car is noted on carjam as an aftermarket import. Like Australia, it's hard to find a NZ delivered car with the cloth seats like this. This one most likely came from Hong Kong or Japan.
Spotted for sale in 2019, this imported SEC would have likely been from Hong Kong or Japan. Needs a little work and has some rust in the corner of the rear screen.. I don't think Australian SECs were ever optioned with cloth, so this is rare to see. The airbag option was also rare in Australia. The seller noted the car has some other rust - and was unregistered. Bids starting at 8500 AUD in Sep 2019. A bargain under 10K, and a nice way to get into the classic Mercedes market.
We spotted this rare Brock Fairmont Ghia B8 on Ebay in September 2019. Looks to have a bit of rust, but not too bad. A great project and probably a good investment. There are a few of these that come up for sale each year which is surprising considering there were a couple of hundred of the B8s built. This particular car is number 84, Finished in Rosewood red / burgundy. There are quite a few Brock Fairmont Ghia and Falcons here on Classic Register. Some of the others are listed below.
This one was spotted on Ebay Australia extremely cheap - unbelievable for such a low mileage example. It's VERY hard to find these cars in late model form (1996-1998) - most are the earlier S500s. Hard to say how many would be about but estimate only a few hundred C140 CL500s on the road in Australia (maybe a couple of thousand cars if you include the earlier S500 coupes and the 1992/93 SECs.
Found on Ebay USA in Sep 2019, with a buy now price of $8,750! It;'s never been a better time to buy one of these future classics. At the time of the sale the seller noted: Very well maintained garage kept it's whole life ,interior extremely clean like nobody ever sat in..119k miles runs and drives excellent AC ice cold with all the power options of its time and every button functions like it should,... I don't think it can get any more luxury than this back of its time just wonderful vehicle cleanest one I have ever seen
