1985 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class



  • EXTREMELY SOLID BODY/UNDERCARRIAGE...purchased NEW in Atlanta (see original window sticker at right)...would be $100,408 in 2015 dollars!
  • HIGH QUALITY BASECOAT/CLEARCOAT FINISH...in the handsome original Anthracite Grey Metallic color
  • NEW CONVERTIBLE TOP...beautifully fitted and complements paint color
  • UPGRADED WITH ENGINE (5.6L) AND TRANSMISSION FROM 1988 MERCEDES 560SL WITH ONLY 80,000 MILES...gives much more robust acceleration and highway confidence than the much smaller 3.8L engine
  • UPGRADED SONY AM-FM-CD AUDIO...with (theft deterrent) removable faceplate

GENERAL OVERVIEW...if you are looking for a very solid bodied SL with proven southern origination (see original Atlanta dealer price sticker images) that drives great and looks great...look no further. Very handsome in its original color Anthracite Grey Metallic basecoat/clearcoat paint and new tan cloth top. Inside the car, he famed Nardi wood-rimmed steering wheel and Sony AM-FM-CD audio unit are nice upgrades.

The car is a true pleasure to drive...smooth, owerful, uiet exhaust system. Even after 30 years, ou know this was an expensive car that was very well engineered. Of course, here have also been advancements in the past three decades, o be realistic in your expectations. For instance, odern rack & pinion steering is extremely precise, nd this Mercedes has a recirculating ball steering box of a much older design with a bit of the familiar (to vintage classic car owners) "play" common to older cars.

The car needs nothing to enjoy driving, ut the AC is not working, he horn button needs a little "encouragement" to work, nd the clock, dometer, indshield washer are inoperative.

IMPORTANT IMAGE NOTES: To fully illustrate this iconic 1985 Mercedes SL, here are well over 100 images. The first 21 images are intended to give a quick overall presentation of the car from a variety of vantage points.

ABOUT ME: I am an avid car enthusiast. After retiring from 30 years of sales and marketing in a Global 100 company, formed Murphy Endeavors, LC and began buying and selling classic cars as a collector and for friends and clients. This classic Mercedes belongs to a friend and fellow classic car enthusiast.

Please note that I have had 2,594 eBay transactions with happy folks and have sold classic cars to eBay customers in Brazil, weden, witzerland, rance, ermany, ustralia, ussia, anada, apan, nd throughout the United States.
IMPORTANT FINAL REMARKS, ONDITIONS OF SALE, nd VIN NUMBER DETAILS...the Buyer will receive a Notarized Bill of Sale and Georgia Registration document. IMPORTANT NOTE: The state of Georgia does not require vehicles of model year 1985 or older to be titled - as is the case with this Mercedes. Instead, "Non-Title" registration document is issued - and the registration itself then becomes proof of ownership to the current registration holder.

Though this nicely maintained 1985 Mercedes has been exceptionally well-cared - it remains a 30 year-old automobile. Therefore, his sale is strictly on an as-is and final basis with no warranties or liabilities expressed or implied.

ODOMETER NOTE: the odometer is inoperative, nd stopped at 219,955. The actual mileage is therefore not known. However, he engine (5.6L V8) and transmission in the car came from a low-mileage (80,000 miles) 1988 Mercedes 560SL.

Every effort has been made to present this car completely and accurately to the best of our knowledge and resources, ut errors and oversights are possible. Therefore, re-purchase examination of the vehicle (if desired) is welcomed before the listing's end and can be easily arranged by appointment.
