** Last 2 photos show minor surface rust bubbles around rear wheel arch (applies to both rears) and the rear edge and N/S/R corner of hard top bubbling. Wheel arches very easy to fix. Hard top will need a repaint in next few years but would be fine for another few seasons without being 'unsightly' - if hard top is in storage for the Summer, then it doesn't really matter. Soft top is slightly worn at corners and but the black colour is as new - not faded etc so looks good. Could be replaced in a few years but not urgent.
This is a well restored example of the ever popular SL, fit for another 30 years on the road. Buy in time for the Summer!
