Chic, solid and a high number of standard features, MotoeXotica Classic Cars is pleased to offer this 1990 Mercedes-Benz 500SL (R129) Convertible. This example was made in November 1989 in Bremen, West Germany. We are selling this nice Mercedes 500SL for a local client of ours who has owned this car for the past 12 years and he mentions that the factory hardtop is also available.
Dressed in Dark Blue (code DB-904) with matching electro-hydraulic folding top, the paint and trim are in very good order, as are the windows, which are clear and intact, even the plastic rear windows. The car’s lights are in overall very good condition, including the headlights, which have their own wiper blades and washers for cleaning.
This car rides on AMG, five-spoke alloy wheels, surrounded by 245/45ZR18 tires in front and 275/35ZR18 in rear. The right front wheel has a blemish on the trim ring. Its body panels are all solid and straight, including the body-matching collapsible roof, and bumpers. Driver convenience features include security system, automatic climate control, cruise control, power steering, power four-wheel disc brakes with anti-lock, dual front airbags, power windows, power locks, 10-way power seats with three-position memory, power mirrors and power antenna.
Designed in 1984, the R129 was based on the shortened floorpan of the Mercedes-Benz W124 and featured many innovative details for the time – optional electronically controlled damping (Adaptive Damping System ((ADS,)) optional) and a hidden, automatically extending roll bar. The number of standard features was high, with electric action for the windows, mirrors, seats and hydraulic convertible top. Other exterior features were removable wind deflector and ASR (Automatic Slip Control).
Under the 500SL’s hood is a M119 5.0 L 32-valve DOHC V-8 engine. It had four valves per cylinder and variable valve timing on the intake side. The M119 offered the following features – the engine block uses asbestos-free gaskets and has better oil flow; the cylinder head was a four-valve aluminum unit with dual overhead camshafts; the connecting rods are forged and enable cooling of the pistons with sprayed oil; the pistons are iron-coated cast aluminum; an improved vibration damper system is used; the aluminum oil pan has bolted-on oil baffles to prevent foaming of the engine oil; the intake camshaft timing is adjusted hydro-mechanically up to 20°.
The M119 engine is linked to a Mercedes-Benz 5G-Tronic is an electronically shifted five-speed overdrive automatic transmission with torque converter lockup.
Other vehicle features include front suspension with independent struts with separate coil springs and gas-pressurized shock absorbers, triangular lower control arms with anti-dive geometry and stabilizer bar.
Out back is an independent five-arm multilink suspension with separate single-tube gas-pressurized shock absorbers and coil springs, geometry for anti-lift, anti-squat and alignment control and stabilizer bar.
Inside, the Royal Blue Leather (code 272A) interior is in very good overall condition. The bucket seats look fantastic. The matching carpet is in similar good condition while there is a light colored headliner that is in good order. The car comes with full VDO instrumentation and the dashboard looks great. The original four-spoke steering wheel is present and the door panels match the rest of the interior. The mirror glass, center console and shifter are all in very good order. Rounding out the interior is a factory AM/FM stereo with cassette deck.
Competition to this Mercedes in 1990 included Chevrolet’s Corvette Convertible, Jaguar’s XJ-S V12 Convertible, Ferrari’s Mondial T Convertible, Lotus’ Élan SE and Mazda’s RX-7 Convertible.

MotoExotica.comis a licensed bonded dealer through the state of Missouri. We have been in business since 1988 selling high end, special interest, pre-owned and exotic vehicles.
With the advent of the Internet and EBay Motors, we have found an avenue that allows us to sell cars we normally purchasedfor ourselves. We have owned just about every exotic and luxury car known to man;such asISO Grifo to Jaguar XKE, Lamborghini Countach and Rolls Royce.
In the past, these cars were sold primarily through Hemmings Motor News and through word of mouth. We would normally keep a car and enjoy it personally for 6 – 18 months. However, with listing carson EBay Motors, our turnover has tremendously increased. Now, the average time we hold a car is 4 – 6 weeks!
With the increase in turnover has come the increased need of fine automobiles. We are constantly lookingfor exceptional cars and travel the country coast to coast in search of the rare and unusual. We find our cars through individuals like yourselves as well as classic car and dealers auctions. Wedo not purchase vehicles that wewould not be proud to ownourselves.

Vehicle Pickup & Shipping General Terms
The vehicle is offered with a right to a personal inspection by any bidder or agent. If you or an agent upon completion of a scheduled inspection at our St. Louis location finds the car not to your liking, we will refund your deposit with no questions asked. Feedback MUST be left before the vehicle is released to the buyer/agent/shipper. If you are the high bidder and unable to inspect said vehicle before auction close, you or an agent will have seven (7) days to inspect said vehicle after the close of auction. I encourage a physical inspection strongly to avoid any misunderstandings or representations.
All disputes arising out of or resulting from this sale shall be finally determined by binding arbitration in St. Louis, Missouri in accordance with the commercial rules of arbitration of the American Arbitration Association. The arbitration shall be carried out by one or more arbitrators in accordance with said rules. Any award shall be enforceable in any court of competent jurisdiction in the same manner as judgments. This agreement to arbitrate shall survive the sale of the automobile described herein. Buyer and Seller hereby agree that Missouri law shall control for all purposes under this Bill of Sale. Buyer and Seller hereby consent to the personal jurisdiction of the state and federal courts of Missouri to specifically enforce the agreement to arbitrate and to enter judgment of and enforce the award of the arbitrator. All above terms and conditions are applied to vehicle sales, whether through EBay or otherwise. Fees and Taxes
Payment must be made by Cashiers Check, Money Orders or Wire Transfers payable in US Dollars. A Refundable deposit in the amount of $500.00 must be received within Twenty-Four (24) hours of the auctions close either by Master Card, Visa, Discover or PayPal (Credit Cards or PayPal for deposit only NOT for full payment). Purchaser cannot make any claims of ownership to said vehicle without payment in full. The buyer has seven (7) days from close of auction to inspect the vehicle. If an inspection or decision takes longer than seven days and you find the vehicle not to your liking, your deposit will be forfeited and the car will be relisted. Final payment must be received within ten (10) days of the auction close. The refundable deposit only applies if you or an agent inspect said vehicle in St. Louis and find it not to your liking.

We will not be responsible for buyer’s remorse or problems found to said vehicle once they have left our property. We are just being realistic; most of the cars we deal in are vintage and by their very nature will need TLC and some degree of attention sooner or later. These are not new cars and your expectation should not be of a perfect, new car. Once full payment has been received, Seller will email or fax a copy of clear title, Bill of Sale, Buyers Guide and additional DMV forms to the Buyer to sign and return via email or fax. The fully-executed forms must be returned to the Seller prior to the shipment of said vehicle. Original paperwork will be sent to Buyer via USPS Priority Mail within ten (10) days from date of final payment.
