I recently purchased a 1983 SL from my neighbor is sunnydry california. She bought it new and never had the soft top up until I got the car from her. She is in her 70s and is around 90lbs, so the drivers seat is exactly like the passenger seat, i.e. mint.
The car is white with black interior, and black soft top, automatic. It has a white hard top. My wife and I don't use the car like we planned and it sits in the garage. It was too nice to pass up, plus I told the lady if she ever was getting rid of it, please let me know. She got a new mercedes, so in a sense I had to buy it.
The original owner had new brakes and tires put on it, and it was always serviced at a San Jose California dealership. I still have the california blue-yellow licence plates to the car. I figured I would get some offers here before going to eBay to sell it.
The car is located in the chicagoland area, I had it enclosed trailer shipped from my home in california to my home in st charles IL.
I will post the high resolution pictures at my personal picture website for my car collection (this site said they are too large), click on the 83mercedes. I am into muscle cars and old corvettes, and this car is just going to sit, so I might as well sell it.
It has 73K or so miles, babied. Drives perfect. No dash cracks. This is a little old lady car from california. Best reasonable offer gets the car. I am familar with the NADA price guide for the car.
