1979 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class Additional Info:


Are you physically, mentally and emotionally ready to own a German classic???

Are you ready to buy a car “new” to you, but still be able to drive it yourself, rather than have these silly, Big Brother contraptions drive it for you?

If not, move on…..BUT, if you are, get ready for a life-changing experience.

First, the anticipation of its arrival. Then you get the call from the car shipper…..”We’re close.”

You have already cleared a spot on your property for this baby. But one last sweep before she arrives.

Wait…..there she is, riding up on a hauler, as if she were a homecoming queen candidate in the annual parade. BREATHE! Don’t forget to breathe. You patiently wait for her to be backed off the hauler. Then it happens…..the driver hands you the keys. You stand back to get a look at what you have added to your life. German technology at its finest. Then, that feeling when you grasp the door handle…..and the gate to ultimate satisfaction is opened to you. You slip your bum into the driver’s seat…..and you feel it. Whether it’s your first time, or a repeat performance, you are sitting in a classic German convertible. SAVOR! Run your hands around the wonderful classic steering wheel. Oh, yes! Fight the urge, but you cannot win. Your eyes find the rear-view mirror. “I look good!” Slide a key into the ignition and S T A R T Y O U R E N G I N E! The sound of that German engine is intoxicating. You gear to drive and move your foot from brake to gas, feeling the front rise as if you were lifting from a runway. Oh, what a feeling!

All under-the-hood restoration invoices/documents included. All work performed by a German-educated Mercedes technician…..works on nothing but Mercedes. His contact information will be provided to buyer on request. When new tires were placed, tech said she has new brakes…..and no rust. That’s right. RUST FREE!!!

All original books and Mercedes tools included.

Insured for $30,000 with State Farm. Bidding starts at $16,000.
