Hi All

i am about to purchase a 500sl 1991.

i was under the impression that the bumpers from 1990-1993 were different to the body color.

yet this 500sl is white and so is the bumpers.

were there 500sl's back then where the bumpers and body color where the same?

or has this been resprayed?

all that i look for sale online seem to justify my claim of the bumpers being different to the body color.

any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

Scroll down from here and look for the roadster section, then look for which chassis this 1991 500SL is. In that forum you will find more actual owners who are experts on this series of MB.

The bumpers were kind of light grey matt finish. If the one you are looking at is body color then it has been resprayed. I did that on a 1991 560SEL and it looked much better in my estimation.
