The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms.

Classic Car Overview

Sport Leicht Auto Gallery is pleased to offer this 1988 Mercedes-Benz 420SEL !

VIN ID# WDBCA35D8JA410773   ///   Production Date: 04/88

Exterior Color: Black (DB-040)

Interior: Palomino Leather

Mileage: 150,000 (original documented from new)

California lifetime very well preserved and fully documented 126 example that was originally purchased at Gregg Motors Mercedes-Benz of Santa Barbara. With 2 owners since 1988, it has a book of service history. We have a clean Carfax documenting miles, services, emissions and dates of service / registrations. 

The body is straight as an arrow having never been hit and never been painted still wearing its original black factory paint. Other than normal wear, minor scratches and blemishes to be expected with age, the paint still shows nice deep shine. Every body panel still has the original VIN tag in place. We had the bumpers refinished upon acquisition to bring back the original fresh look. All original MB glass all around. Still retains original issue CA license plates.

We are super keen on this palomino leather interior that’s been kept out of heavy west coast sunshine. That can easily be seen with the original unblemished leather dash pad, near perfect wood consul and excellent door cards. Original carpet throughout the interior still has vibrant color. Headliner is excellent. Equipped with 2 way power sunroof.

AC is fully operational, through all vents, on all speeds and blows cold.

The engine bay is ultra clean as is the trunk.

Still retains its AM/FM Becker Cassette radio that sounds great. 

Wears 15 inch Gullideckel alloy factory finish wheels with correctly sized new Michelin tires.

A few of the refurbishments done in preparation of sale include new headlamp bezels and a brand new hood pad. A recent service was done by prior ownership addressing brakes, steering tire rods and AC.

Drive quality is exceptional on this vehicle and is exactly as Mercedes Benz would have intended it to be with current mileage if you were to follow the Maintenance book to the mark. Equal only to an example with 1/3 the miles, just excellent. I would describe it as an overly serviced example owned and operated by meticulous keepers. A highly compelling reason for our acquisition. 

Comes with complete service history from prior 2 owners since 1988 new purchase at Gregg Motors in Santa Barbara, California.

Complete with factory issued handbooks and manuals, original spare, jack and MB tool roll.
