SOLD 97 500SL Sport White/Tan for $12.5 with hardtop Florida
SOLD *** 1997 Mercedes 500SL ***Why did I sell it for over 2x's over book value? Because it was worth it... It needed some TLC...but everything else was solid and perfect.
**For all of you that called**
NO - I did not replace the transmission/engine/heads etc within 160k miles...WHY? --> This is NOT an AMERICAN CAR. If I had to think about replacing major parts before 300k....I would not own MB's.
NO - It is not leaking anything on my garage floor...why would it? (read previous statement)
NO - I will not drive it 1500 miles (to meet with you half way) for you to look at it.
NO - I will not sell/unbolt/ship you parts off of it...buy it....whole.
Updated car for job in CAâ€¦plans changed and do not need two SL's in Florida. Spent the last two+ years in my airplane hangar (MLB) collecting dust.
Many new/replaced items: new heated tan leather seats, new top and rear window, Xeon Lights, keyless entry, tinted windows, new battery.
Replaced all pistons/hydraulics for top (including the two above windshield)
160k Good Condition - Runs Strong - Needs some more TLC and price is best offer (OBO)
Not a car nut (just love ragtops) and all work/maintenance was done by MB or certified MB mechanic.
East Coast Florida - USA
