This ’98 SL320 has had just one lady owner from new and covered just 45k miles from new.

 

Finished in Azurite Blue with Mushroom leather interior and a blue hood. It is equipped with rear seats, half-wood steering wheel, heated seats and headlamp wash/wipe along with the usual electric seats and climate control. Complete with original hard top.

 

Bought new from Hughes of Beaconsfield in ’98 as a fiftieth birthday present, the car was maintained for most of its life by the supplying dealer.

In 2019 we carried out a full inspection and refresh of the car totalling nearly £7000, carrying out all jobs required to ensure the car was in A1 condition. This work included replacement of the cylinder head gasket.

The car has all original books/manuals and 11 services recorded, plus a folder containing all associated receipts from new. Two keys and HPI clear.

 

Generally the car is in really lovely condition. Free from corrosion with very nice original paintwork, a perfect roof and truly superb interior. The car also drives beautifully.

 

Note, we are selling the car ‘as is’ on behalf of the lady who has owned it from new. We have carried out an inspection on the car and there are a few minor items that could do with rectifying, including the air conditioning not cold, hard top head liner sagging, 3x tyres are cracking and a sticking driver’s door lock. 

 

Being a ’98, this is the last of the straight six models; a desirable version as it combines the more characterful six with the five-speed auto, no wiring harness issues and improved climate control.

 

Given its mileage, provenance, colour combination, general condition and recent expenditure, this is a very desirable SL with a little scope for improvement.
