1955 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class 4 door sedan

Fully restored over 12 years ago. Excellent interior restored to its original Mercedes Benz classic interior specs. Runs excellent. Drives very strong with perfectly shifting automatic transmission. Adjustable height suspension for rough to soft ride set up for rough terrain. Everything works. Starts immediately if used often otherwise needs priming or takes several attempts without priming if car sits for months.
Exterior paint is respectable to be taken to any social event but not for Pebble Beach or other car shows. A new paint can make the car ready for a show if that's one someone wanted. We used it very sparingly for very selective events such as Academy Awards etc. Has few normal scratches and very small dings that do not prevent us to drive it to any type of social gatherings! Since we have several formal sedans including a Maybach, Rolls Phantom V James Young etc., but on very special occasions we drive this beauty with pride. Registration and insurance is always kept valid.
Tires are not steel belted radials but are the ones recommended by the Mercedes Benz. They are like new with less than 1100 miles driven on them in last 6 years or so.
Charging light comes on when idling but on choke when car's engine speed goes up a bit, charging light goes away. May need new belt or servicing the alternator.
Very respectable, sophisticated classic before Maybach or the classic 60's to early 70's Mercedes 600 Pullman or the non-Pullman came out. This car is a very respectable and an unusual car for someone who stands out among the Rolls Royces and Bentleys. This draws a far more respect and attention than my Rolls Royce Phantom V James Young!
Reducing the collection to move to Europe. All cars must go for a fair market price. Willing to accept sensible offer from those who know these cars! Not looking for top dollars but fair price so don't hesitate to make an offer!
