Car was bought new in California, and remained there for about 25 years. Than went to a relative in Colorado, and than bought by a gentleman (Colorado relatives college roommate) in the current owners town in Pennsylvania. Then they pursued a purchase from him. This SL has an extremely solid body, and has spent most of its miles as a California car. The rest of the time appears that it has been kept out of the elements, so it has been well preserved. The contrast and color combination is very striking, with very nice quality chrome, paint, and body. Car has past ownership info, and many service records. Car had left front fender, hood, and other repairs after a collision. See copies of body, and major mechanical work in pictures. Engine was rebuilt, and new cylinder head was installed. We have no record, but last oil change was done in 2018-2019, and tires replaced approx 2 years ago per owner. In 2020 a new battery was installed along with new rear wheel brake cylinders and shoes. This couple have enjoyed car now for 20 plus years, and it is now time to find this SL a new home

Chad drove the car several times mostly around town, and it seemed to steer properly. The drive train does clunk a bit when you go from forward to reverse, or reverve to forward, but seems to work just fine. The brakes work well, and stop smoothly but the peddle seems a little low and there is some seepage of what looks to be brake fluid at the right rear brake. Owner is going to have this looked at. The engine seems to start easily, you do not have to put your foot on the gas pedal with fuel injection. It just cranks over in about a second or two. The car runs well overall.
