This car is a completely original and an unrestored example, a very rare thing. Most of these SL’s have been restored with some even on their second restoration, but not this example. The last owner had this vehicle for 20 years having bought it from the original owner. The service history file is fantastic, original service book stamped by main dealer and specialists. The 5 litre V8 is spot on, pulls very well and gearbox is smooth. As you can see the car is stunning and I think red is one of the best colours on this era of Mercedes. It certainly gets a lot of attention. The black leather interior is lovely. I don’t think the passenger and rear seat have ever been sat in they are un marked and feel like new. Under the factory hardtop is the hood in great condition in black. Car was fully serviced in August 2018 along with an mot. Everything works as it should, even the cassette player and eclectic aerial. There are a few rust scabs but no holes – worst being the passenger door, but please remember this is an untouched unrestored example that has not been on the market for 20 years. Please come and view the car and of course go for a test drive, I love driving this thing.
Please see eBay listing to bid!
This is a private sale no warranty given or implied. It is 30+ years old so do not expect a brand new car but this is the only unrestored SL500 on the market that will be sold with no reserve to the highest bidder so you might grab yourself a bargain.
