This particular 560SEC apparently was imported from Japan in about 2005 as an online Australian advertisement appeared in that year.  The first Australian owner was a Sydney lawyer, followed by three South Australians, most notably Allan Scott of Scott Transport Mt Gambier who owned a notable vehicle collection.  Following Allan Scott's passing in late 2008 the car was sold by a Mt Gambier dealer (Carlin & Gazzard?) and stayed in SA until October 2010 before being purchased by a Queenslander.  He retained the car until late 2012 and sold to a Brisbane dealer, prior to relocating to an island, and I purchased from that dealer in July 2013.  Of course, we would welcome anyone being able to fill in the history gaps as much documentation has been lost by the most recent owners.


This 560SEC is in quite good condition for its age (1989 model) but this is due to having low kilometres of approximately 132,000 when purchased.  Colour is Pajett Red exterior with Orion Grey leather.  Wheels were non-original, but apparently rare, AMG Aero 1, 17"X8".  These have been changed to an excellent set of original 15" wheels to restore the original comfort.  Also non-original, but a worthwhile addition, is a Kenwood integrated entertainment system incorporating GPS, Phone compatibility, reversing camera etc.


Now sold.  Owned for eighteen months but I would like to have the option of experiencing other interesting cars before 'they' take my licence away.
