1983 Mercedes Benz 1000SEC By SCS

“Styling Garage Special” were a German based company in the early 80’s that produced highly modified Mercedes Benz SEC’s & SEL’s. These cars were the most expensive Mercedes to be sold at that time, featuring “Gullwing” Door Conversions and elaborate gold-plated packages for the discerning buyer. The interiors featured state of the art Mac audio/Clarion systems, gold plated Eagles Head Shifters and Exterior Gold-Plated Emblems and Wheels.

German engineer and coachbuilder / tuner Chris Hahn's Styling-Garage (SGS) was the first to make an attempt at the concept of fitting Gullwing doors to an SEC. In 1982 Styling-Garage made big news when they introduced their Gullwing-doored 500SEC Mercedes, named 500SGS Gullwing. This car was based on the 500SEC Mercedes and had undergone major work to make the Gullwing-doors possible. Styling-Garage had strengthened the roof and they also added steel beams in the doorsills so the car wouldn't bend as a result of cutting away parts of the original SEC roof. As you can imagine this was a very costly operation and so Styling-Garage would charge you with a bill of 83.000 DM in 1985 for converting a standard Mercedes SEC into a Gullwing, all extras not included. Just to put into perspective. 83.000 DM was about the same as the price of a new Mercedes-Benz 500SEC at the time. Styling-Garage is rumoured to have made 57 of these cars over the years.

The 1000 SEC offered by Worldwide Auctioneers is believed to be the lowest mileage example known to exist covering a mere 12,754 miles in the past 35 years. Chris Hahn of Styling Garage contacted the present owner of this example and he confirmed this.

This is a fabulous opportunity to obtain one of the most prolific Mercedes Benz made in the 80’s with price of the new car being matched by the conversion itself! Finished in high definition Gloss Black Coachwork, the bodywork was cleaned and polishes only after its emerging from such a highly long storage term. Light Tan Leather interior in superb condition, no rips or tears, just what you would expect from such a low mileage car. The engine runs beautifully, and the car sounds like back in the day. Factory fitted power windows, power mirrors, power steering and brakes. The transmission is the factory fitted 4 speed automatic unit. 

A rare opportunity to acquire not only a 1000SEC, but the lowest known mileage survivor car, not to be missed!!!
