Vehicle Description

This cream 500SL was supplied new in February 1981 with the optional rear occasional seats in place of the standard luggage deck. The car has its original maintenance booklet, owner’s manual and pre-delivery inspection sheet. A number of MOTs from the life of the vehicle are available as well as servicing and maintenance records.
The car has undergone recent restoration of which the boot lid, boot springs and soft top horseshoe have been replaced. The off-side rear inner and outer wings have been replaced. The-off side boot floor has been replaced as has the petrol tank bulkhead. The off-side front footwell has been repaired with a replacement kick plate. The car displays some rust bubbles on the front off-side wing and rear off-side bumper. The speedo has been subject to refurbishment. The car was recently serviced including replacement spark plugs and new shock absorbers. The engine runs very well and provides the power one would expect from a V8!
The interior is original and in good condition. Supplied with an MOT valid until September 2017 with no advisories recorded, it also comes with a good soft top and a satisfactory hard top.
