Although the first W116 S-Class in the 1970s established Mercedes-Benz as a global leader in safety engineering and technical prowess for sedans, it was the next W126 S-Class, beginning in 1979, that saw this model become a top-tier luxury good, a true flagship, and a lasting symbol of affluence throughout the 1980s.
The smoothed-over styling of the W126 S-Class signaled a newfound focus on aerodynamics and fuel-efficiency. With a coefficient of drag 14 percent better than the previous model. Safety and occupant protection were also unparalleled, with a driver airbag offered through most of the model run. Traction control was also introduced, as were seat-belt pretensioners.
For the U.S., W126 Mercedes-Benz S-Class models can be split into two groups: 1979-1985 and 1986-1991. SEC (coupe) models were offered in 380 and 500 form for those first years and 420 and 560 form after the mid-cycle refresh.
In addition to the more powerful lineup of engines the W126 received with its mid-cycle update, these 1986-91 cars can be picked out cosmetically by their flush-face halogen headlamps and integral headlight wipers. Inside, these updated S-Class models include electronic automatic climate control, an electronically adjustable steering column, and leather steering-wheel and shift-lever trim, among other additions. Heated front seats were included in the 560SEL and 560SEC and optional on the rest of the lineup.
In general, powertrains for Mercedes W126 models are quite bulletproof and last well past 320,000 kilometres with no issues. Most typical repairs aren’t any more labor intensive than in other European cars of the era.

This 560 SEC with 90.000 miles on the clock is a fully optioned example. The Carfax is without any accidents. There is no rust presented as it spent the whole life until 2017 in sunny Florida.
The car is completely unmolested in original condition and looks amazing in the Blue-Black metallic over Grey leather.
