Im selling my 95 SL500.
I put it up for sale locally, but am including it here. I have it listed for $6500
but will sell it to a Benzworlder for $5500, or best offer. - I promise you wont find a better deal. I am selling this to because I recently bought an SL600 and dont have space for two R129s.
This is the craigslist ad: 1995 Mercedes SL500
The engine and transmission have been rebuilt by the previous owner roughly 40k miles ago- no paperwork to support this, but ive seen his photos while it was with his mechanic. there was no reason for me to not believe him. I guess you have to take it as face value. - regardless, the price reflects everything except the rebuilt engine/trans part.
- Brand new xenon lamps- even the fog lamps are xenon (I may sway out the fog lamps with my 600... havent decided)
- Brand new oem r129 grille
- New Soft Top - also OEM
- Repainted same color code (was not in an accident. it was repainted because it spend most its life in palm springs and the pain oxidized)
- theres some others i cant think of, but will add them as they come to me
-The interior color of the hard top is the wrong color (tan instead of black)
-Radio and Amp have been taken out, and not included in the sale.
-Check engine light was on for about 2 days, but then it turned off on its own (may have been from fuel cap?)
-When looking at the car from a distance, you can see paint overspray on the exhaust- ill try to take care of that before the sale.
-On the drivers side right below the door a cylinder for the soft top has started to leak. I noticed a drip when I put the soft top down and put the hard top back on.- I will not fix this as I have no interest in the car any longer and winter is upon us and wouldnt be using it anyways.
The pictures I have uploaded are bad since they show little to nothing about the car. I will take new photos today and uploaded them shortly.
