Lot #404 - The 500SEC was the vehicle of choice in its day for many celebrities, pro athletes and car connoisseurs alike, and for good reason. It was fast, comfortable, technically advanced and extremely well built. The styling is timeless and the quality is unmatched. This car was delivered new to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar on March 20,1984.This was the year Kareem became the NBA leading scorer, and what better way to celebrate? The car was delivered in Europe and shipped to California, where it was legalized to US specs, and still wears its original blue plates. It has been driven an average of less than 5,000 miles per year. The Euro version is much more desirable, mainly because of its more powerful engine (231hp vs 185hp for US cars) and the smaller, more attractive bumpers. This SEC was ordered with just about every option available including climate control, heated power leather seats with memory, sunroof, rear headrests, Becker stereo, alloy wheels, headlight wipers, hydro-pneunatic suspension and driver side airbag. The car is all stock and original including the wheels and radio. It does not leak a drop and everything functions properly. Included are all the books, original warranty card in Kareem's name and the original title signed by him.
