One of the reasons the R129 Mercedes are so sought after, especially the later models, is there mechanical reliability and build quality of the highest standard. The SL500 is, in our opinion, the best of the breed with such effortless power, reliability and great soundtrack. The gearbox is seamlessly smooth and a joy to use. There are no warning lights on the dashboard and no undisclosed mechanical faults. Premium Dunlop Sport tyres are fitted all round in excellent order. Brakes are in excellent order with very recent discs on the front stopping the car promptly with no pulling. There is no vibration or pulling from steering wheel or knocks from suspension. Any inspection or test drive welcome.
This car is gorgeous looking and in exceptional cosmetic condition. The subtle AMG styling with the 18 inch wheels means this car has a real presence in the flesh. There is no rust or corrosion on bodywork. The wheels are in original order and maintain their polished lip. The wind deflector has never been fitted and by the look of the black electric soft top the hardtop has never been removed as the soft top still looks like new. There are no scuffs to bumpers or damage. Due to the cars originality there are some marks to front end as you would expect but they taken nothing away from the cars presence.
A beautifully built and specified interior with fantastic lumbar, heated, electric seats. This car has never been smoked in and maintains its original Mercedes aroma. All the electrics including soft top are in full working order. There is no wear, dirt or stains on the carpets or MB over mats. The boot area looks like it has hardly been used with no marks or stains and the full size wheel and Michelin space has never been used. The wind deflector looks to have never been used. All the door shuts and under the bonnet is exceptionally clean. Original book pack, 2 keys etc all included.
