Its Original and very rare Aqua Blue (#917G aquablau) paint has rich shine and luster, and it makes this SL look timeless!!!
Chrome is in beautiful condition, complete with healthy luster, and this beautiful roadster is a head turner and conversation piece everywhere it goes.
This Mercedes spent its whole life in California and Sunny Florida! Being a dry climate car its whole life, it is very solid, and its undercarriage is all original, unmolested and most importantly it is rust free!
When you remove the dust in the wheel well area, original factory paint is revealed! You can find this on only handful of these cars as majority of them had been undercoated time after time trying to prevent or cover up the rust!!!
Body is also very straight and solid, and all doors, hood, and trunk are operating with ease, with everything lining up as it should. It has been always garaged, pampered and kept away from rain and bad weather.
Factory VIN number stamping on the front radiator support are another sign of originality of this car. (please see pictures)
All glass is correct and original, including the windshield!!! Again, found only on handful of cars, and mostly on ones that have been loved and cared for its entire life!
Like they say â€œOriginality is king when it comes to classic carsâ€!! Not only does finding a 40ish year old car that has not been altered by numerous past owners add to your enjoyment of the car; the more original features that you can substantiate the better when it comes time to sell your treasure!!!

This SL comes with both soft top, and the hard top! Dark Blue Canvas Soft top is like brand new, in excellent condition, and it is very easy to operate. Back Plastic windows are crystal clear!
Hard top is also in excellent condition, including all original Sekurit glass, and the headliner which is clean, and rips and tears free!! Another sign of originality of this beautiful car is stamping mark on the Hard Top (2096) which reflects the last 4 digits of the vehicles original Data card number!!!
