I this description is HUGE but read it all, there are really amazing things to be here!!

This auction is for a piece of automotive art, a Mercedes Sl Roadster. This is the R129 Body-Style and boy, is it gorgeous. As many of you already the 1996 SL was refreshed quite a bit and several upgrades. As such, maintain the classic R129 but with a much more flare. They only the SL320 for two years after refresh (1996 and 1997) so are fairly rare by R129 So, this is sure to be a unique, car for its new owner! If you didn’t know already, an R129 is Mercede’s for any SL-Class produced 1990-2002.

I am a car (a hobby, not a business) and have a ridiculous amount of cars 60) and as of now this one is by far and away one of my favorites! As you can I have always been a car as such I know how to take of them and always give the proper care and respect they deserve. In fact, I am selling this as I have an to purchase another, unique This has been such a car, I would only it with another R129. else would do.

The car in question is Code 040, Black that is the factory Mercedes for this color, kind of a name) over a stunning, yet sporty Black leather It has nearly every single / option package you could get on vehicle (except the multi-contour When I bought this I selected it because of it’s original condition and darn flaw free appearance. I purchased this car, it was all original, right down to the Cassette Player! Every you will hear described I had professionally done myself! I get into the additions on this vehicle, let me explain my vision to I fell in-love with the Roadster right when came out in 1990. I pined for a one with all the right options. At point in time, it was far out of my price I never forgot about beautiful car. Years I bought my first Mercedes (a 2000 SLK Limited Edition). As as it was, it just wasn’t my car……an SL. So, I sold it and moved on to vehicles. Years later, I to visit a long time of mine at his job at a Cadillac / Mercedes While I was waiting for him to come I couldn’t believe when I saw they had an R129 on the pre-owned Mercedes centers typically sell a car over five old, this one was just nice. It was so gorgeous that I help myself……I bought it then and there, what an day. The car didn’t have all the that I wanted nor was it the exact I wanted (I really wanted a but I figured that I could care of all that later. bringing it home, I sat forth in it the cleanest, most loaded, SL320 around. I started off by additions to make it more the 99-02 model years as had a few cosmetic upgrades from years, So I made the following enhancements:

OEM 1999-2002 Style Taillights

OEM Style Side View (nearly $1,000 but I really them)

With the exterior now all of the 99-02 styling cues, it was to bring some fresh upgraded components and some personal touches to the interior. I with the same formula I on the exterior to handle the interior. does this interior amazing. With the interior looking nearly new, it was to complete the job! That said, here are the interior

OEM 1999-2002 Style Leather Wheel Air Bag

OEM 1999-2002 Style Gauge Rings

OEM 2002 Arrow Chrome Shift

OEM 1999-2002 Style Leather Knob

OEM 1999-2002 Passenger Interior Cargo Net

Having all of the 99-02 modernizations, I turned my to adding some very options and accessories. Here is I added and upgraded:

OEM Xenon (about $1,500 but the difference is

Crystal Clear Front Signal Lenses (they the xenon lights better)

the trunk lid (removed ‘SL320’ the trunk for a cleaner look, I have the badge though you want it back on)

New Soft-top (I didn’t care for the OEM grey liner, so I had it replaced with a one to better match the interior)

Heated Seats (nearly but well worth it)

OEM Audio10 (the stock cassette isn’t of grand quality, so I this OEM system. It was never in the USA and is quite a unique find. It is an In-Dash CD Player)

OEM Floormats (I brand new, factory SL Floor Mats)

3-Bar Matched Grill with Trim (truly adds a modernized image yet doesn’t from the stunning and classic looks of the R129)

Real Fiber Mercedes 3-Pointed Hood Emblem

I think is about it for Exterior and Interior I really wanted to keep it original, clean and beautiful. giving this car some looks, both inside and it was time to make the most R129 on the road. That some new Parts and Maintenance! is what has been done to stunning car during my ownership.

In the years since car was brand new, the car has only 152,000 miles. That out to just 8,000 miles a The national average is 15,000 per So, this car has less then of the miles that it should. It is absolutely fantastic. As I mentioned I have receipts for EVERYTHING I ever done to it. This has a surprisingly potent 3.2 Liter Six with again surprising of Torque. It truly is a zippy It sounds great and zips the road very pleasantly. It is an sensation to drive this rather at speed or in a relaxed and manner.

If you have shopping for an R129, I’m sure you seen a ton of ripped seats, roof headliners, missing pieces, cracked trim and carpets! Well you are not going to any of that in my car. This is immaculate! I have conditioned all of the every single month! The car gets washed every week and gets fully once a month. It has never parked outdoors. I have driven the car as a daily driver. It gets driven about every month or so. If I’m not driving it, I pull it out of the garage to detail it and pull it right back in.
