For sale. EURO 1977 Only one in the country!!! Factory number matching 4 speed manual with AMG features. tow package from factory. no A/C. no sunroof from factory very rare even in Europe in this configuration. If you want to find a 6. 9. you can after looking for an hour on the internet. I bet you will not remember the last time you found an AMG featured SE. This Mercedes-Benz is in outstanding condition. I own the car for a few years now and I personally took care of the shipping of the Mercedes just about two years ago. I do not have to tell you it cost me an arm and a leg. and some money too. My buddy owned the SE in the past 20 some years over in EUROPE. He is the craziest car owner I've ever known as he constantly was improving the car up until about 7 years ago when he parked the car in his heated garage and almost never drove it again. (might be 100 miles a year. previous years of his ownership he drove it about 500-1000 miles a year to car shows and some pleasure drive) I purchased the vehicle from him about 3 years ago and the car was not driven until I shipped it here to the USA. After the car arrived to New Jersey it was professionally checked in a shop because I wanted to drive her to Colorado where I live. The car got brand new front brakes. oil. oil filter. thermostat. new coolant liquid and new brake fluid. After it was prepped I drove it all the way to Loveland. Colorado without a problem. She drove better than some new cars. I titled the car in my name and than I went for a licence plate. when a huge surprise came along. they told me I need an emission test to get the plates. It was a huge bummer since I checked all the applicable laws before I made the decision to buy the car and the law said the car is exempt from any testing in the whole USA since it is more than 25 years old. The whole country except Larimer county. Colorado. Not the whole state of Colorado but only a few county. including the county I live in. So I had to go through all the loops to get the original emission limits from Germany. After all that the car failed the emission test by . 2 on high CO2. They said it is nothing serious. but rich mixture of air and fuel. Since that happened we replaced all the injector heads and put back the original air filter housing. and the car sits in my heated garage since. never tried to do the emission test again. why??. #1 I bought the car on an impulse as it was a big part of my younger years and while it is a dream to drive and one of the most comfortable cars I've ever driven long distance. while I was driving it home to CO I realized it's not my style. I'm an Audi-Porsche guy and driving the Merc is just not for me. so the car sits in my heated garage ever since. Do not get me wrong I love to look at the car and I love the way it looks. but. if you're a real car guy you know exactly what I'm talking about. I would have to take the car to an expert to do the adjustment on the fuel-air mix. or might need the K-jet rebuilt. but I won't. If car does not sell I will have to do that down the road but not for now. We did a compression test on the car and all 6 cylinders were around 160 and there was no more than 2 of psi difference between cylinders. If you buy the car you're more than welcome to check it before you pay for the car just for the piece of your mind. The biggest problem could be with the car is the infamous K-jet system. Also possible that the valve guides seals are hardened as car was sitting basically in the past 20 years. Other problems are the front door card are a bit loose need some door panel plastic pins. Car sometimes blows the radio and rev meter fuse. (same fuse). Tire treads are OK but same tires since about 1997. Some chips on windshield. Engine runs well. tranny is smoother than anything else I ever drove. seriously. Suspension quiet. no problems there. Brakes are new. I stated any known problem with the car. Please check the pictures. but they're still not going to show the real beauty of this car. The paint is 10 out of 10 no comments on that. No paint chips. not one!! Car has been painted 15 years ago with the highest quality paint and while original color code were used the car was given a show quality paint job. Please check reflection picture. Please do not offer anything low as I will not sell it for chips. At the same time I'm ready to sell or trade for a Porsche 944 turbo or Porsche 968. Please just be reasonable. as you will see you money back if you ever want to sell it down the road. Dash board has no armor all or any shine solution on pictures. Car has the original first aid kit. Raid steering wheel came with AMG features. Just to give you an idea I have around $12000 in this car. how much is worth. ? I have no idea as she is the only one in the country in this condition. I know one thing: some of the 6. 9 sells for $25000 - $30000. and some are asking $60000 for them. This car is very unique in it's presence and it will not lose value ever. and she was always loved and pampered. If interested call me at 808 628 0523Adrian
