SOLD. Going on top of an SL74!
Pano hardtop for 129 chassis SL Mercedes (1990-2002).
I am trying to sell my 1997 SL500 with this top. I have had quite a few inquiries about selling the top by itself. After careful consideration, I have decided to sell the top and lower the price of the car to move it quickly. I am not really interested in taking any standard hardtops on trade. In my opinion, this is the single best cosmetic upgrade for a 129 chassis SL. I would really like to see it go to an enthusiast who will really appreciate it.
As you probably know, these are EXTREMELY rare, highly sought after, and typically command $2,000 -$3,000 used from a salvage yard and I've heard stories of $10,000 brand new at the MB dealership. I already have one potential buyer for the top from LA who says they're going to buy it but can't make it up until this weekend. So, in order to cover my bases I am also posting it for sale here in case that sale falls through. If you wait until this weekend, it will most likely be gone.
PLEASE NOTE: I am selling the pano roof only for $1500 firm. This price does NOT include the 1997 SL500 in the pictures.
The top is in good condition. It is silver with black interior. The only defect that I can find is a very small paint defect where the top meets the windshield on the passenger side (pic included).
Can probably meet up with buyer in the SF Bay Area as I am in Modesto. I would also be willing to take the top to be crated and shipped at the buyer's expense.
$1500 - again, this is firm. Rather than do $XX OBO, I'd rather cut to the chase and have no negotiation and just state what I want for the thing. I am willing to accept payment via cash (if picking up) or Paypal (if being shipped).
