For Sale: 1985 R107 500SL Euro Model - 41,000 Original Miles

Available in Minneapolis, MN.

You guys may have seen this on eBay recently. After one deadbeat auction winner and a 'reserve not met' auction (reserve set at $21k), I suggested to the owner that I post the car to an enthusiast forum... so, here it is. The owner is a car guy, he's looking for $19,000, but he's reasonable and is looking to sell the car. The thing is pristine. His contact info is below, his name and phone number... more of a phone guy than email, he's happy to talk about the car.

Description from the owner:
1985 Mercedes-Benz 500SL European model, the real deal, grey market import, a true Mercedes-Benz “Young Classic” as recognized by the Mercedes-Benz Classic Center in Irvine, CA. Small Euro bumpers and Euro headlights. Red with Saddle leather interior. 41,118 original miles, although I’ve driven it a couple of times since these photos were taken on May 11, 2011.

I am the third owner (owned since 2000) and have only enjoyed it during the Minnesota Spring and summer months, for weekend getaways to the cabin or leisure driving. Never driven in snow, no rust on this car at all, anywhere. I store the car in a climate controlled garage (temperature and humidity regulated).

The third tail light on the trunk lid was added by a previous owner. Exhaust system meets U.S. emissions controls, speedometer is in MPH, these items were changed during federalization after import… .yet it retained its Euro bumpers and lights.

Call JACK in Minneapolis, MN if you want more details, see it, take it for a test drive, ask questions, whatever. Jack's phone number is (612) 385-8004.

Also listed for sale at "The Uncommon Garage"
