1994 Mercedes-Benz SL500
Click on image for Fullscreen
A very pretty and attractively priced R129 SL500 with just 114k miles from new.
Finished in Polar White with navy blue leather and hood – a classic Mercedes combination that looks great on the R129. This is a very nicely specified car with automatic climate control, memory seats, rear seats and orthopaedic driver’s seat.
All books and manuals with 14 stamps in the service book and a folder of bills. Two keys, HPI clear. No advisories on the last MoT.
The car has had a new engine wiring harness, new hood windows and it was serviced less than 1000 miles ago.
Recent new stereo with Bluetooth and hands free.
This SL is very tidy and original. The bodywork is straight and wears majority original paint, still with its correct two-tone finish. Similarly, the interior is lovely with no tears or heavy wear to the leather. The hood has a little age to it but no holes and has new hood windows. The original 8-hole wheels wear a matching set of Dunlop ‘MO’ tyres. The radiator grill, which is often tarnished and damaged on these is in excellent condition.
The hardtop is no longer with the car, but most owners rarely use them as the cars are mainly for sunny Sundays these days. They also come up for sale regularly if the next owner did want one.
In summary, this is an extremely honest, original and clean SL500 that the next owner can drive and enjoy but also allows scope to make minor improvements. It has sensible miles, a good history and that desirable 5.0-litre V8 engine that sets it apart from the more common 6-cylinder cars.
