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.

She feels and smells like a true 80s Mercedes and confirms the reputation of one of the worlds greatest car manufacturers.

This one was hand-selected by the  previous owner who purchased her in California as the best most original he could find for use at his holiday home in Southern Spain

Finished in Smoke silver with beige leather and brown hood still in superb condition she is a beautiful example far better than a European car which would have been likely restored by now whereas this one is original and you can’t beat that.

The specification is very high with auto climate control, outside temp gauge, rear seats, Becker radio, rear seats etc.

There’s a history file including handbooks etc.

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 a lusty performance from the superb V8 engine allied to the smooth four-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.
