FS: 1991 R129 500SL

Looking to sell my beloved 500SL. I've had her since 2007 after importing her from Japan with 79,800KMS on the clock. I got this car through Mark at BraveAutoInternational, and those of you who know him know that he comes highly recommended in the import business, and is probably one, if not the best, exporter of used vehicles from Japan.

-133,900 genuine kilometers
-Metallic black/blue with black leather interior
-No liens / clean title
-No accidents
-Body is beautiful and in fantastic shape; ZERO RUST on body and undercarriage
-Does NOT leak or burn oil
-Leather is in fantastic shape but the driver's side bolster needs to be replaced due to a developing hole
-Soft-top works 100% (no leaking at A-pillars) but the rear plastic window does have a small crack in it that needs replacing
-Soft-top system does NOT leak hydraulic fluid
-Air Conditioner works 100% -- AC is ice cold
-Blower motor works 100%
-AirCared (Canada emissions requirement)
-Engine runs very strong and equally solid idle (no idle hesitation)
-I have service papers from Japan and all import documentation for your reference.
-Vehicle is entirely stock (no after market modifications) other than a DVD/GPS system that was installed by previous owner
-VIN Data card: 500SL DataCard_VIN Decoded.pdf

Recent work includes:
-Tie rods including drag link
-New steering damper
-Alternator (and serpentine belt)
-Fuel filter
-Brakes and rotors from R1 Concepts
-Struts, strut mounts, and boots
-New control arm bushings
-Idle Control Valve was replaced with an original MB OEM unit
-Valve cover gaskets and chain guides (both left and right)
-Vacuum lines replaced
-Hydraulic cylinders for soft-top re-serviced by our BenzWorld friend Dennis Ficken.

I am open to fair offers.
Feel free to email me at nik.infra@gmail.com or message me and I'll be happy to answer any questions you might have.
