When it comes to the specialty car market, most would agree the option that best enhances most cars is the drop-top. Ask any convertible owner and they will tell you “As the top goes down, the fun goes up!” or something like that right? But let's be honest there is nothing like the feel of the wind in your hair, the warmth of the sun on your face, and a 360-degree unobstructed view of your surroundings as you cruise your favorite drive. If you want to capture that in your future driving experiences, this is the right car for the job.
Garage Kept Motors is pleased to offer for sale this 1997 Mercedes Benz SL500 roadster. This clean 2-door luxury sports convertible is originally from the south and is very clean. Painted in Black (factory code 040) the paint presents with a few minor chips on the leading edges as would be expected over the course of 25 years of light use. The paint has been well kept and treated with GTECHIQ Ceramic coating to preserve, protect and enhance the paint's luster. This SL500 includes both the removable hard top as well as the soft top. The soft top is in very good condition with no rips or tears and little if any sun fade.
The black leather interior with simulated wood trim exudes luxury and is a classy combination with the black exterior. The seat upholstery shows little if any wear and is free of any rips or tears. The carpet has been well maintained and the factory carpet floor mats have kept the wear and color fade to a minimum. The interior is well-optioned and features full instrumentation and a factory clock framed by a simulated leather-wrapped steering wheel. Other options include air conditioning, cruise control, power windows, and power locks. The factory Bose speaker system fills the cabin with the soundtrack for your drives, and in fact, dig out those old mix tapes you have been saving as the sound system features a cassette player. The factory AM/FM/CD/Cassette player is in place ready to play those classic tunes in Dolby noise reduction. Another cool retro feature is the OKI car phone which our research indicates can still be activated.
Under the hood sits the spirited factory 5.0 litre V8. The engine compartment is very clean and well kept with many of the factory decals and markings intact. Power is transferred through a four-speed automatic transmission to the independent rear suspension. Underneath this car is very clean and original with many of the factory assembly paint marks still present and it's doubtful this car has seen much if any inclement weather or dirt roads. The chassis features the ASR traction control and ABS four-wheel disc brakes and rolls on the factory 10” alloy wheels with Goodyear Surrance 225/55R10 radial tires.
The 90's SL500 roadsters have a classic look that remains fresh today. This amazing touring car is sure to catch more than a few admiring glances on the road. This car represents great value for someone looking for a fun weekend getaway car at a reasonable price. Please call if interested or e-mail with specific questions. Thanks for looking.
