FS: 1991 300SL 75k Miles

I am selling my well maintained, 1991 300SL Automatic with 73,406 miles asking $10,800.00 USD. The color is Pueblo Beige with a matching hard top and dark brown leather interior and the original dark brown soft top. The car is being sold as is with no warranties. The buyer is responsible for any taxes and shipping which are not included in the above price.

I am the second owner of this SL which I purchased in 2001 with 43,575 miles from Crown of Dublin, Ohio. The original local owner purchased the SL from Ed Potters and traded in at Crown of Dublin, Ohio on a new SL.

I have performed all scheduled maintenance and performed repairs as needed. I have kept a log and the receipts of all services and repairs performed since I owned the SL.

The plastic window in the soft top has a crack but the window is clear. All other systems and components are fully functional and in very good condition with normal wear. The AC has been converted to R134. The original manuals, tools, and first aid kit are included. The spare tire is original and has never been used.

Feel free to send me a private message if interested.

I have not had any interest in this 1991 300SL.

I would like to get some feedback from the forum as to why this may be.

Thanks.

Any time I see this stated in an ad my first reaction is PASS. I,m sure 99% of us know that in a private sale this is the case so stating it leads me to believe there is something wrong with the car. The color IMO is not the greatest nor is the mileage.

Thanks for the reply and comments.

I included the comments you referenced as an after thought since all Ebay cars contain such language.

This is a private sale and the SL is in very good condition.

The color is different from the normal red, black, silver, white SL but it is the original paint and in very good condition.

Thanks again.

My opinion

Color - Pueblo Beige is cool but it's still beige and there are not alot of luxury sports cars buyers dreaming of someday owning a "beige" sports car. That said I happen to like the color alot. The brown interior while "different" is just that different... I think people would prefer black.

Location - Dublin Ohio is pretty far away from either coast where people IMHO seem to have more disposable income (even in this horrible economy) I see people on my coast (NE) buying decent well priced cars. Ohio being in the middle of the rust belt might scare away some people. Maybe include photos of the underside of the car.

Price- $10,500. is a strong price for a beige 300SL in the middle of the country.

I would think 8500-9500 range asking might get more people to at least begin negotiations

Thanks for the comments.

This SL was never driven in the winter as the low mileage would indicate and only rained on when we were on a trip.

I think the color is great. The original owner had horses and I think she really like the dark saddle brown leather. The brown leather adds a bit of richness to the car.

For the age it is low mileage. What I find strange in general that MB SL cars often have very contrasting exterior-interior colors; sometimes to the extreme (not in this case though).

W210 1996 E320 Exterior Smoke Silver, Interior Mushroom, 159,999 miles as of 09/09/09, 170K as of 02/01/2011.
