For Sale - well maintained 1990 500SL

$7,000 or best offer:

I am selling our 500SL that has been in the family since 1992. The car was passed down to us 3+ years ago and has undergone extensive work on most major components.

A daily driver in San Diego it came to Texas in 11/09. It has 279k miles but before I acquired the car with 272k miles a new engine and electrical harnesses were installed at 193k. I installed new brake pads and Michelin Pilot Sports, battery, PS pump, coolant, trans. Fluid & differential fluid. Headlights upgraded to Euro spec, and resprayed the front bumper and A-pillars replaced engine hood pad.
Suspension (Springs, lower ball joints, struts, tie rods, motor/trans. mounts, idler arm, center link, stabilizer links/bushings, wheel bearings) and coolant system (Radiator, expan. tank, fan clutch bearing and hoses, thermostat, water pump, vacuum lines, O2 Sensor & plugs) has been completely overhauled. The hard top headliner, leather seat upholstery, center console leather and vinyl around seat retractor and seat base were replaced 32 door dings accumulated over time were removed but a couple near the Tourneau top remain.

In 12/12 left rear roll bar sensor and roll bar solenoid were replaced and found slight leaks in four soft-top hydraulic cylinders. All 12 cylinders were rebuilt by Dennis Flickin/Top Hydraulic and the top now works flawlessly.

There is some seeping or leaking from a few spots that is considered normal for a 24 year old german car and none of seeps leave spots on the ground. We are seeing seepage from the transmission pump o-ring and seal, the trans selector shaft seal and side covers. The Left head gasket is seeping as are the power steering cooler lines and gear box . The oil pressure sender is leaking and the radiator fan clutch is bad.

Prepurchase inspections are welcomed so your mechanic can offer an opinion if any of these issue require immeadiate attention. The primary work on this car has been done by Autoscope of Dallas.
