For Sale: 1997 Mercedes-Benz 320SL in Mooresville, North Carolina


Vehicle Description

HIGHLIGHTS: Low-mileage, well-kept vehicle from a private collection! This rare 40th Anniversary Edition Mercedes-Benz SL320 is in great condition and is ready to be enjoyed!

BODY OVERVIEW: Clean and straight are is the only way to describe it! This Mercedes appears to have always been kept as a "fun" car, and has clearly been pampered all its life. One glance down the side of this car tells you all you need to know!

PAINT CONDITION OVERVIEW: The exterior is finished in a brilliant purple/blue/silver color called Quartz Blue Metallic. This was a special paint color reserved for the 40th Anniversary SLs. The paint is in remarkable condition that suggests this vehicle was garaged and kept out of the elements. With just 55,424 miles on the odometer it is no wonder that there are very few imperfections in the paint.

INTERIOR CONDITION OVERVIEW: Step inside, and you'll be transported to a completely different place. The interior is finished in a soothing gray material with special 40th Anniversary Edition wood trim on the doors, steering wheel, dash, and console. The interior of this car is strikingly lighter and more calming than the interior of other contemporary Mercedes-Benz products. The special Royal Maple wood trim is sure to catch the eye of any discerning Mercedes enthusiast. The interior is very nice, clean, and complete showing only minor wear on the driver's seat bolster.

MECHANICAL OVERVIEW: The engine runs smoothly and quietly; this is a beautiful example of German engineering inside and out! The M112 3.2 L 18-valve SOHC V6 is a great powerplant for this car, and provides plenty of pep. Additionally, the presence of the original owner's manual and supplemental documents suggests the level of care this car has received.

WHAT YOU'LL LOVE ABOUT THIS CAR: The rarity, the way it drives and the convenience of having both a soft top and hard top. Plus how can you not love this interior!

WHAT YOU MIGHT HATE ABOUT THIS CAR: This Mercedes is squeaky clean. So, for some buyers it might actually be too clean to enjoy it. Also, the original CD changer has been upgraded, although the original is included in the sale.

DOES IT NEED ANYTHING? Nope, this car is ready to join a collection or be enjoyed on the open road.

WHAT BUYER IS LOOKING FOR THIS CAR? Any buyer that doesn't want a run of the mill SL and to own a rare mercedes future collectible.
