    Description: 1993 MERCEDES BENZ 400SEL This is a very low mileage, very well preserved car. One owner, only 71,600 Kms since new. It was sold new in Vancouver, BC Canada and it has lived pampered life, always garaged, always serviced on time. The paint, interior, everything is in excellent condition. Everything works, including the AC, windows door locks, etc. The tires are Michelin and the thread is deep. It drives great powerful and smooth. Service history from Mercedes-Benz dealer is available. A few thing of note - the wiring harness was replaced by Mercedes dealer, the throttle actuator was replaced as well. As it can be seen from the photographs, it is excellent, well-preserved condition. By Appointment.

    Looks great in photos but I wonder about the 500SEL trunk badge.

    This looks like a car that can get crazy money on Bring a Trailer. It seems there are a handful of sellers there that find nice examples of non-collector cars and then sell them for collector car prices.

    There is one that's been on local CL for a while and keeps on popping up @ half the miles of this one. Been tempted to go and have a gander.

    You made me look on Vancouver's craigslist where I found a post for the car at Splendid Auto with a price -- CAD $11,900. So about USD $9,100. That doesn't seem crazy for a low mile example like this.

    Yup we seem to have some nice ones pop up. Function of rich Asians owning tons of property but spending very little time here and then also driving short distances.

    V140!!
    Silver with black guts, WITH the optional ASR and front seat heaters (both were optional on the 400/420 at that time). Indeed, the trunk badge is unusual. Most trunk badge "upgraders" just went all the way to the 600. Doesn't matter, all right-thinking people remove the badges altogether...

    All models, or all 140 chassis? I saw a 107 at the golf course last night (where else?). Red over Tan, top down, sheepskins showing on the seats... a 380SL. I wished it had no badges. I as SO looking forward to seeing 560...

    Id say that about 70% of the time when I see a 107, its either a 380 or a 450 depending on the color. I always look anyway, looking for that 560 badge.

    Beautiful. You look at this and you see why people plunked down major money for these when new.

    The interiors look very robust.
    No wonder it is easy to believe the myth that these cars were equipped with bullet proof glass.

    Indeed they did. And that photo you singled out right there? That is PERFECT industrial art to me. Not one thing there simply to impress the innocent, unless you count the wood simply for being there at all. An argument can be made that it diminishes aggressiveness. Works for me. No words how much I love that...

    For my personal preference, that’s for all models, all badges, all the time. No exceptions. Well, OK, here’s an exception: I would not try to de-badge one of the models that attaches the badge via holes in the body panels. I would just leave those alone unless I was already doing a relevant body work that made such a thing easy. The comment was just me being a wise ass and over expressing myself on the topic. Now, are all of mine de-badged? No. The reason? Just laziness and inertia. But one day, oh, one sweet day, they will all be badged no more...
