1965 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class

Beautiful original SL by long time owner!
This beautiful car has NEVER been trailered it has driven to every show for the last three decades!
The current owner is into his seventies and is ready to let someone else take custody of this fabulous machine.
It has various small imperfections that I have tried to show in the photos. It has been maintained as needed such as replacing all the leather a few years ago. The convertible top is three years old and near perfect condition. The hardtop hasn't been used in the last 10 years and needs some minor attention to the leather trim at the bottom. I have that leather which is of course included with purchase. The bumpers still look new but the rest of the chrome shows some patina. The AC quit working about 10 years ago but it is complete if you would like to repair it. I haven't done so because I couldn't decide whether to upgrade to a more modern system.
I can say with certainty that there has been no damage that required repair in the last three decades, I can't speak for the first 16 years of it's life but I see no signs of previous damage or repair. I encourage you to inspect it for yourself here in Jacksonville Florida. The Becker radio is original as is the Kuhlmeister AC. The car runs exactly as it did 50 years ago and the transmission shifts the same way. I included quite a few photos and I'll be happy to email any other areas that you would like photographed. Feel free to contact the owner for info or to arrange inspections at 904-292-0881 between 9AM and 10PM EST.
I am offering this car at a very low price (please see Hagerty's valuations) but I will still deliver it within a reasonable distance such as to the Jacksonville port authority for shipment overseas. Shipping will be entirely up to the purchaser except for local or nearby delivery.
I will require a 10% deposit within 3 days of a sales agreement and full payment in real money before it leaves my garage. I will entertain offers accompanied by refundable deposits - no "would you if's".
