1987 MERCEDES SL500 – 124,000 miles – £24,950
From its launch in 1971 the SL soon became the standard all other Grand convertible touring cars aspired to.
By the end of production in 1989 there had been very few major changes just mild developments and enhancements.
This beautiful Blue/black example was purchased in 1987 by Saatchi and Saatchi and pampered from day one with regular servicing carried out including recent more work at the renowned SL specialist Roger Edwards.
Valve guides and other consumables have been dealt with over the past few thousand miles and she feels like she will easily cover another 100k miles with ease.
The original handbooks, service books and years of invoices are in the history file.
With only eight owners, she feels and smells like a true 80s Mercedes and confirms the reputation of one of the worlds greatest car manufacturers.
The hard and soft tops are in great condition and these 1980s SL’s look very similar to the original 1960’s pagoda icon at a fraction of the price.
On the road she is a fine GT tourer with lusty performance from the superb V8 engine allied to the smooth 4 speed auto gearbox.
You could set off and tour the South of France tomorrow in style and guarantee you would get there with utmost reliability.
Supplied fully Inspected, serviced and with a comprehensive 12 month warranty.
