1991 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class

This car runs and drives excellent and won't need much to make very nice again.It was just Virginia safety inspected in April of this year and is good until April of 2018. The rare light blue metallic paint is niceand there are no rust holes anywhere including underneath. I just drove this car over 700 miles round trip last week and would jump in it today and not be afraid to travel anywhere and back with it.It also has expensive 18 inch AMG wheels and fat tires all the way around that give this car exceptional corner grabbing skills and a great updated aggressive look.This is not your grandpa's SL500 It also has the AMG hydraulic suspension/shocks. Although it is ready to drive right now there some issues as most 27 year old cars will have. The seat skins are worn and have some holes and the interior in general is a little beat up.The rear center brake light needs repacing because the seal is no longer keeping the rain out .There are stains in the carpet,thedoor panel doors and console doors are brokenish and the power seats do not work.The cars drivers side lock is NOT working. It has to be unlocked and locked from the trunk or passengers side door lock and also has NO REMOTE and only one key. I would suspect the seat controls are faulty but it could be the seats or motors themselves are maybe just wire contacts or just fuses or there contacts.I also bought this car with no hard top removal tool and I have never removed the hard top so I have no idea how hard it will be to get off or if there is a soft top and frame once the top is removed .I bought it from an auction and got no history with it. I suspect the hydraulics of this car will need servicing. The roll bar switch and top switchdon't respond at all when trying to use but the light does come on the top switch so maybe the hard top has to be removed before the switches react?. The check engine and roll bar light do come on and off occasionally also but the 322hp engine in this car runs cool and very quiet, starts immediatelyEVERY TIME YOU TRY TO START IT. The engine NEVER runs hot EVER and the automatic transmission has no shifting problems and no slipping problems at any time.PLEASE CALL WITH ALL QUESTIONS BEFORE BIDDING! 571-502-2407 and leave a message if no answer.

This car also qualifies for historic plates in Maryland. This means no inspections are required forever and tags and registration is much cheaper than regular plates. There are driving restrictions with historic plates though.
