SL500 FOR SALE! $7900!

Hey guys. If you look at the other posts, I listed that I won an SL600 on eBay, so with that said, I can now let go of my car without shedding any tears.

I have for sale, a 1991 SL500. It has 165,000 miles on it, but is still in great condition. It had a new Transmission, Water Pump, Timing Belt, and Tensioners put on it at 145,000 miles. The exterior looks great, and the interior is not perfect, as it is 17 years old, but still nice. The car has no major problems, just a few small cosmetic and convenience ones.

The most important ones are the power locks (vacuum lock requires you to manually lock the door), and the roof (a thief cut into it to steal the original radio over a year ago. It should probably be replaced, as the repairs aren't as pretty as I would like).

Please check out the photos, as well as a website that I made for it at URL: 1991 Mercedes Benz SL500 Convertible - V8 Roadster

This would be great if you have a friend or someone who wants one of these awsome cars! Email me with any questions!

Greetings,
Just out of curiosity if I may ask, what size Kickers are those? Eight or ten inch? Kinda hard to tell in the picture. Also, are there custom built sealed boxes or encolsures inside of the compartments behind the seats for your subwoofers or are the subs just mounted onto the cut out compartment tops? Oh, and you have mentioned you market your vehicles on Ebay. Have you ever considered "Autotrader.com" and/or "Cars.com"? I believe that they are great ways to tap in on the market based on internet sales. BTW, wish you the best of luck with your 600!

Ken

wtf is going on

I just got done reading all the posts related to this SL500, and the SL600 this guy apparently bid on but did not buy, and it is like a train wreck that you can't drag yourself away from.

It seems, at a minimum, that this guy posted a thread complaining about buying a car with 165,000 on the odometer that turned out to actually have 210,000 miles based on the carfax report. But then, just last week, this chris character lists his SL500 for sale (see first post in this thread) with the ORIGINAL FRAUDULENT MILEAGE in the ad. Am I missing something here? Wtf is going on with the world.
