FS: R129 Panoramic Glass Roof Hardtop Pano

Hey All,

I originally posted this add for sale under my fathers user accout as I was unable to recover my password for this account. I have since done so and here I am! Please ignore the other ad with a similiar title, it is for the same item listed here.

On to the top!

I have a black panoramic glass top with black headliner for sale. Here in AZ I never use the hard top and see no need to keep it.

Its black non-metallic and in excellent condition. It has spent the majority of its time in the garage on the stand. The top is perfect. Shade works well and the frame has no dents. Rubber weather stripping is good.

I will post up some pictures this evening as I am about to head out the door for work. I am asking $3500 OBO.

The top is located in Scottsdale, AZ for local pick up. Shipping could possibly be arranged but I suspect might be quite a hassle. Either way Im willing to look into it should the buyer be too far to pick up.

Sounds like a lot of money to me but than again looking at some of those MB parts maybe not??????

I think you are within the "ball park" with your asking price. But, there are two major set backs in selling it. 1) color combination to match the buyers car and 2) the location (distance) between you and the buyer.

Good Luck!

Thank you! I agree that the color combination might pose a problem but frankly the anount of metal that there is to paint to match the car is not a whole lot. The frame rails of the top are much narrower than the normal top and the glass will remain black regardless.

Ill be happy to help arrange shipping so I can't see too much of an issue on that front.

How does one safely ship an all glass top to Alaska?

Anyway, here is a recent one in Tx I think that was available a few weeks ago...

These are kinda rare items, but a few come up for sale each year, seen them go as low as $1500, high around $3000 or so..

A good avg price somewhere in the middle, all depends on the seller and buyer needs.. (how badly you need to sell or purchase)

But if your driving down from Alaska, your total cost is going up, nice to bring back a Pano though...

I think the seller in this post was looking to trade for a metal hardtop plus cash, have you PM'd him yet?

If the Pano in this thread is gone, or you can't come to terms, I'd look for one in CA if I were you, a shorter trip and a lot of nice stuff to see if driving down from Alaska..

Got lucky with mine, came as an option on my SL, and was a deal swinger as I hadn't intended to get another black car... but the deal was so sweet I couldn't pass it up,

Good Luck...
