1978 Mercedes Benz 350SL 95172 miles

V8 Engine and Automatic gearbox. Drives as one of these should, slip into the springy arm chair of a driver's seat, grip the large bus steering wheel, which was actually a pre air bag safety feature, and enjoy this comfortable boulevard cruiser. Often seen crusing around Hollywood and in the rich coastal areas of California, normally driven by the Trophy wife or parked on the driveway of the mansion next to the Tennis court, or even next to the Ferrari at the yacht harbour or country club.

This car is a legend and icon around the world, like a Chanel designer handbag it was a 'must have' accessory and possibly the best shape of all SL's ever made, think Dallas and Hart to Hart. Guaranteed to turn heads as it is one of the most desirable roadsters of any make of any time.

The car has some service history, a hard and soft top roof and is finished in metallic Silver. As this is an early car it has the Mercedes colour coded hub caps (Pagoda style) which set the classic looks off far better than the 80's turbine type alloys seen far too commonly on these cars.

Tax and MOT exempt as the car is now 42 years old so there are a few age related marks, but this is far from a project car. It is a perfectly useable classic ready for the weekend.

These cars designed in the 60's flower power era were the epitome of the 70's and 80's financial boom, they were reliable and cheap to own in the main as many components were shared with the everyday saloon cars which are now million mile taxis used in third world countries. Common and everywhere for very good reason 237,300 were produced and scattered around the globe in their 18 year reign and deservingly so. They are too good to just be driven by the lady in your life. The only 2 seater sports cars to surpass them in popularity were the much cheaper MGB and Mazda MX-5.

Beware of rusty cars with bulkhead problems, this car is fine but rotten ones are normally a write off. Also beware of over priced cars from a certain English specialist, this car is priced sensibly to compete with the US imported rust free ones at the correct price for a quick sale.

Only selling as I have another one and need space. Again, this car is priced cheaply to sell so no time wasters or stupid offers. Please call the phone number provided, if I don't answer leave a message. No texts or emails as I am a very busy man.
