Vehicle History

Stunning, rich, and delicious, our taupe convertible was purchased new in Everett, WA.  Always garage kept, she shows her timeless beauty and when the sun comes out, her Son gives the family SL a shine.  All original, except for a few tasteful additions, she is a family heirloom.  A clean and clear WA title, in our Owner’s name, follows a wonderful CarFax report.

Stunning and original Desert Taupe sets our shapely beauty to a stunning stance. Aftermarket chrome wheels, while brilliant, only just accent the beauty of an SL. Chrome and stainless brightwork classic to Mercedes show clean and in excellent condition. Her convertible top is reported as original and in very nice condition. Chrome rims really dress the exterior.


Rich tan leather are standards for Mercedes, she is reported to be in original and very good condition with just a little wear noted. All her gauges are reported as functioning proper as are the window operations. An aftermarket stereo accents the interior and added speakers in the back did not require any interior modifications. All panels and console are solid and in grand condition. When you sit in this luxurious sports ride, you are in the lap of luxuriousness.

5.6 litre fuel injected V8 she’s Mercedes through and through. A new timing chain was installed at apprx. 60k miles. More recent were belts, hoses, and a new radiator. All stock and original running gear including her 4-speed automatic transmission. Brakes were refurbishing in 2000. She is missing a resonator at the rear of the original exhaust system.


A thorough and exhaustive review of the car was performed by Lemon Squad and was found to be in very good, original condition. She indeed shows light wear and simple exterior conditions very consistent to an original, stock, low mileage 33-year-old garaged car. Really, the only major items were not that, just minor, including a errant climate fan switch and a potential seepage (read – not a drip) of engine oil.

The gold standard for sports convertibles is the Mercedes SL. Yes, there are platinum cars, but they are measured around that German Leicht unit. They are timeless, historical, consistent, and built to a quality standard like no other. Cars of the 80’s were rebounding in power and performance. Quality control and style were significant, and ‘the best or nothing at all’ establishes MB SL’s ahead of other sports convertibles.
