The SL or "Sport-Leight" (light) by Mercedes Benz is a grand
touring sports car that has been being built since 1954, however
the original SL was a race car built for Grand Prix racing in 1952
with no intentions of developing a street version. That all changed
when US importer Max Hoffman suggested a street version....Much
like the Porsche Speedster that we can thank Hoffman for. These
SL's have to be some of the most recognizable cars in the world.
When they are first sold they are a status symbol for the
wealthy....In fact, in 1987 when this car was sold it sold for a
staggering almost $60,000.00 which in todays market means
$150,000.00. Alright, I will cut to the chase on this absolutely
magnificent SL that GR AUTO GALLERY OF TC is pleased to offer. This
comes out of long-term family ownership being originally purchased
in Indiana, very rarely driven and sold to the current owners
father. This car still retains its window sticker, some service
history, keys, original hard-top and carrier. This is a very well
preserved low mileage automobile with excellent paint and interior.
The only interior flaw is some wear on the drivers bolster but not
bad. The hard top is in excellent condition, the soft top is
original and does have a hold. There is a Brand New top on order
and the buyer will get that top and if it comes in soon, the top
will also be installed and no charge to the buyer. Everything
appears to be in nice working order including the climate control
system, lights, locks, etc... These are fantastic automobiles that
have increased in value on all levels but finding a low mileage
example in this condition is really special.
