1988 Pearl white AMG 560SEC Widebody - Listed for Sale US$120k

Mario who i know and lives in Canada has put his very unique and rare widebody up for sale after it took out the "legends of the Autobahn" 1st prize trophy at the Pebble Beach Concourse D'Elegance annual event at Monterey CA late last year (2017)

https://www.hemmings.com/classifieds/ca ... 51593.html

There is a lot of documented history to that WB coupe and its build by AMG division in Canada at that time despite them fitting a Gen1 kit to a Gen2 coupe which was a bit of a mix-match of parts they had in stock in 88
This is an AMG spec 16valve 560 engine in this coupe

It cost him a lot to prep and transport the coupe down from Canada to Monterey for the Pebble beach event and then on to Florida so i guess he is selling it on a high to re-coupe his investment seeming it will no doubt be a garage queen from now on to avoid clocking up mileage/wear & tear etc, so some collector will no doubt put it in his garage

Not bad , but you need to see Drews one sometime, it's the red AMG coupe which did the rounds of the car shows back in the 1980's and has a lot of AMG goodies including a full instrument set up , steering wheel, sill plates ,Pentas and a few engine mods. I suspect it has the wrong EZL though as it hunts when idling and doesn't come on cam until way up the rev range :laughing6: . But for a few grand purchase price you cant beat owning the real thing . :occasion5:

Beautiful car that many of us would only dream of owning!

Nice to know that Drew got some goodies other than a load of rust! There was talk when he got it that the rims might be worth what he paid for it so he was nit about to lose out. Did he ever discover and AMG engine mods?
It is easier to ask forgiveness than it is to ask for permission!
