This beautiful Mercedes SL is available for a negotiated sale around £12,995 which is in the middle of our estimated sale range. See TradeClassics.com for a full write-up and over 200 images and videos. EXTERIOR This really is a stunning example of the gorgeous R230 body shape and in excellent condition in line with the low mileage. You’d be very hard pressed to find a better 500SL in as such original condition as this car. Wheels & Tyres Original 18in AMG alloy wheels are fitted and wrapped in 255/40/R18 tyres. The alloys are in really good condition as can be seen in the media pack. Bodywork The bodywork is exceptional on this car. We found no obvious parking dents and the panel fit all looks visually correct. The doors, boot, bonnet and convertible roof all open and close perfectly. Paint The paint work is also exceptional on this stunning 500SL. The silver colour is even and deep on every panel, even in direct sunlight. We also couldn’t see any difference in colour on the bumpers. We only found a few small stone chips on the car. These have been highlighted in the video footage. I think these could be easily remedied by a professional chip removal expert. There is a very small paint bubble on the lower section on the NSR wing where it meets the sill and another one just up near the wheel arch – please see the videos and images. Again these can be corrected easily. Glass and Trim The glass and trim are both in excellent condition – no issues were noted. INTERIOR The interior is simply beautiful quality as expected by the German manufacturer and in excellent condition. The cabin really is a lovely place to be with no issues noticed during our visual inspection. Seats and Carpets The leather seats are in excellent condition with hardly any wear, even on the driver’s seat squab and bolster. Dashboard The dashboard and gauges are all in the condition expected with such a low mileage and well looked after car. Steering Wheel / Gear Stick The car has its original steering wheel and gear stick and both are in excellent condition. MECHANICS We didn’t take the car our regular ‘on the road’ run as it was not insured at the time of our visit. However, Rob confirms to us that it drives perfectly without a problem, along with starting on the button. Please review the video footage to see the cold start we performed in the garage. Engine and Gearbox Rob confirms there are no issues with the engine or gearbox. Suspension and Brakes Rob also confirms the car has no knocks or rattles coming from the suspension. As mentioned, the car has always had the best care in the last three years of Mark’s ownership, and you’ll see receipts for all work carried out.. The Drive Not actioned on our visit due to the car not being insured to be on the road. Electrics and Other We checked all the main electrics and they performed without fault – you can see the electric windows and roof all working in the videos. A battery conditioner is fitted when the vehicle is not in use to maintain the levels of the battery.
1986 500SL Automatic Finished in blue black metallic with cream leather interior 57,700 miles from new Specification includes factory hard top, cruise control, driver airbag, rear seat, outside temperature gauge, headlamp wash wipe, 15 hole alloy wheels. Delivered new by Reliance of Chingford on 6th May 1986 to a local owner. The car changed hands a few times early in its early life to owners all residing in the London area, all of which is documented in the vehicles extensive history file history. The last owner, a lady also from London, purchased it in 2007 and when she relocated to the Cotswolds in 2014 took her beloved SL with her. The original service history book is present and backed up by a most comprehensive history file. This contains old MOT certificates dating back to the very first in 1989, service invoices and old tax discs. A very desirable flagship V8 R107 finished in a most desirable colour combination.
