I talked to John (original owner) and stopped by this morning.
Triple black with pano roof. Pano roof also in black leather (true EXCLUSIVE BLACK LEATHER (561A) option, not vinyl).
The car had a host of small issues (but easy to fix for me) that would detract wary lookers. 140K-ish miles and a lot of deferred maintenance, nothing catastrophic and the low entry point would make this a real bargain to someone willing to take the time to make it great again.
Starts, runs and has that original MB body panel fitment (so tight). I wish I could offer some help like I did with the silver SL500 earlier this year that sold through Streetside Classics, but it really should be the next owner that oversees the recovery.
I hope it goes to a good home, it has A LOT of enjoyment left to give.
