1984 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class european import

This is a very special car and you will never see a similar one. It was built very very well and has been maintained well. The body was modified with a Lorimar body molding kit all around and thepaint is a very special genuine candy apple red. The interior was replaced with white leather, the wheels are AMG and the tires are Z rated and almost 100%. This fine machine looks beautiful and runs beautifully and everything works as it was designed to work. The stereo was replaced and is new with a large screen and CD player with removable face for security with a velvet bag to hold it when removed. This car was over $60,000 new and had over $22,000 additionally added to it so it is not just a nice 500SL made in 1984 in Germany but one modified spectacularly here in the USA when it arrived in 1986. It has been garaged and maintained very well always using Amsoil european synthetic oil and is ready to turn the heads of the people you see around it as we do. This car makes people smile and comment or wave every time it is out of the garage. Non Import VIN# WDB1070461A010441 (this will not come up on USA searches as it was imported after manufactured)My wife says anytime I want to sit out onour new patio, I can go sit in this carbecause it represents the funds for the new patio. So it is for sale :(

Ron Gaubert from Lafayette, Louisiana, wrote to let us know that "The 1983 to 1985 Mercedes 500 SL is somewhat neglected in the press because some do not realize that this was a limited-production car, with only about 11,000 made." Ron is right. There's never much written about these special automobiles, perhaps because, besides the emblem on the trunk lid, there's nothing that identifies it as such.

end island Ron writes: "The difference in the 380 SL, 450 SL and even the 560 SL is the engine size. Most of the 380, 450, and 560 SLs had only 185hp while the Euro 500 SL put out almost 250hp, with this huge V-8. For a roadster, this is significant. While the body styles are similar, the engine makes this a unique car."

The VIN number on this car is WDB1070461A010441 which will not come up in American car searches because it was brought from europe after manufacture by an individual (called a gray market car).
