A ONE owner  R129 SL500 that has to be one of the most original models we have seen in this outstanding condition. The original purchase receipt of £76000 is displayed in the presentation pack a hefty price to pay on the SL500 of that time. It was specified to have all extras optioned. The SL500 was in the ownership of a wealthy Family where it was part of Classic car collection in little use. We have now fully re commissioned it with all new correct Michelin tyres, fluids and  filters. The soft top is as good as the day it was installed on the car, with a interior that is factory fresh. The early period orange  indicator model are the pure Mercedes collectors dream in this condition which are very difficult to obtain this original. The driving is as positive as they come for this model with a  silver and blue colour combination complements it very well with a matching silver Hardtop. One to park alongside the past or present model.

Bulkhead Corrosion

Although the R107 is renowned for build quality, there is one chink in the armour – the bulkhead. Many cars that present well from the outside are hiding internal rust. Water from outside the car should drain out through specially designed channels, but over time, these become blocked forcing water inside the car. Once water has breached the blower motor cover in front of the windscreen, it slowly wreaks havoc from inside out. This delicate area did not have rust protection from the factory, and as the metal deteriorates it the water ingress can lead to faulty electrics, damp carpets and musty smells inside the cabin.

All our cars come with a 36 month bulkhead warranty.
