HIGHLIGHTS: Low-mileage, well-kept vehicle from a private
collection! This gorgeous white and gray 500SL is in great shape
and ready for a new home!
BODY OVERVIEW: Clean and straight 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 the classic
Arctic White with gray cladding. The paint appears to be original,
and is in excellent condition overall with only a few minor defects
to be found. Most notably, there is a small area of damage on the
rear bumper as shown in the photos. White looks great on these
cars, and makes it look far more modern than it is!
INTERIOR CONDITION OVERVIEW: Step inside, and you'll be transported
right back to the 1990s when Mercedes-Benz was cranking out some
seriously modern, luxurious vehicles. The interior is finished in a
soothing gray material with the ever classic and tasteful Mercedes
wood trim.. The interior is very nice, clean, and complete showing
only minor wear on the driver's seat outer bolster.
MECHANICAL OVERVIEW: The engine runs smoothly and quietly; this is
a beautiful example of German engineering inside and out! The 5.0L
V8 is a great powerplant for this car, and provides plenty of pep
while also pumping out that sweet, subtle, Mercedes-Benz V8 exhaust
note. This car comes complete with a variety of service records
going back to the 1990s, further bolstering its well-maintained
WHAT YOU'LL LOVE ABOUT THIS CAR: The color, condition, and the

or be enjoyed on the open road.

well-preserved example of this modern classic!
