BaT Auction: 1993 Mercedes-Benz 500SEL at No Reserve

https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1993-mercedes-benz-500sel-2/

This 1993 Mercedes-Benz 500SEL has resided in California since 1994 and was acquired by the seller earlier this year. Finished in black over black leather, this long wheelbase sedan is powered by a 5.0L V8 paired with an automatic transmission. Maintenance performed within the last 1,000 miles included new spark plugs and wires, distributor cap and rotor, and new ignition coils. A California emissions test was passed in October 2018, and the car now shows just under 70k miles. This W140 is being offered for sale at no reserve with a stamped maintenance booklet, handwritten service log, a clean Carfax report, and a clear California title in the seller’s name.
