FS: 1992 500SL with upgrades $7k OBO

1992 500SL black on black
100k miles
recently replaced transmission with new one from Sun Valley Mercedes Transmissions in Van Nuys, CA. Has about 1k miles on it now
(2 year unlimited mileage warranty)
5.0 V8 322 HP, 0 to 60 in 6.1 seconds

New parts:

Fuel distributor
Fuel pumps
Fuel filters
Front brakes rotors and pads, rears 60% left
Air filters
Spark plugs
New front tires 235/40, rears about 70% left 275/35
Vacuum switch distributor for HVAC


18" offset rims 8.5 & 9.5
H&R sports springs, lowers it slightly and handles better around corners
Bilstein B4 shock/struts.
Radiator cooling fan converted from fan clutch to electric (still have fan/clutch)
Kenwood stereo head unit, 3 pre-outs, USB/Aux/CD
Kenwood 6.5 door speakers
Alpine 4 ch amp 3rd/4th ch bridged for sub
Alpine 10" sub with sealed enclosure with Fishman aluminum chrome grill
headlight bulbs 100/80w
2001 LCD OD/Trip instrument cluster (Mercedes upgrade for earlier models)
Later model clear/amber front turn signals
Later model steering wheel (airbag dated 2002)


Paint very glossy though original, so etchings from bird dropping, minor scratches. Only seen when up close.
Dome over head map light does not come on with door(s) and only one of the two comes on with the switch
both door/foot lights come on when opening doors
central locking vacuum needs repair, so everything needs to lock by key
(the module works if I tap it, so I think the circuit board inside needs re-soldering)
Soft top canvass needs replacing and issue with control module or micro switches so does not operate with switch only manual
Powered antenna does not work, in fixed position (though I have a hidden amplified FM antenna connected to the radio)
Head rest motors work, but not gears to move them (powered memory seats do work)

Otherwise runs and drives excellent with cold AC
Very clean interior with no rips in seats
Carpet and mats in very good condition

Yes the transmission is new
have bloody knuckles and back ache to prove it
