I'm just curious as to what the MSRP of an '82 500SL was when it was new (preferably in comparible US dollars). I have a book with an article which says it was a little over 20,000 pounds in 1982, but I don't know what that would have converted to into equivalent 1982 US dollars. I have a 1982 Consumer Report car review book, but it obviously doesn't list European models. Mine has the optional ABS which I think I read somewhere, and I could very well be wrong, was a $1000 option just by itself. Just curious....
