Description:

1985 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class

This vehicle is in great mechanical order. Lots of money spent in recent years to get a mechanically solid and safe to drive daily. Starts every time and runs like a top. Needs paint and right work needs refreshing. Front seats were reupholstered. Rear jump seat was reconditioned and recolored. Has brand new soft top. New tires recently fitted. New brakes all around. Tracks and brakes dead straight. AC blows cold. All buttons and switches are in good working order with the exception of the film light. This is a perfect car to take your time restoring while driving frequently or even daily.
After them doing some research on the car, this car appears to have started life as a euro spec 500sl that was imported to the US in 1986 through the grey market, and converted to meet US safety regulations - the most noticeable being the US spec headlights. You can see evidence of this in the pictures of the plaques in the engine compartment seen attached. Therefore it has the more desirable - faster - 5 liter V8 as opposed to the heavier, slower 5.6 liter engine designated for the US market.
