This well-presented example is offered in burgundy metallic coachwork over a beige Tex interior and has been treated to much renovation work with Mercedes-Benz specialists, the cost of which totalling circa £16,000. The works consisted of an extensive brake overhaul, a major service including gearbox, differential and engine oils, a new belt, water pump, starter motor, battery, distributor and a new ECU. Also renewed at this time was the interior wood veneer and central locking system. Dry stored for the past 10 years, this Mercedes has been used occasionally and maintained where necessary. The paintwork retains a deep shine and presents well and the interior is in superb order sporting an upgraded Nardi steering wheel. The vendor reports that the 350SL is a pleasure to drive and runs very well indeed although the interior heater unit will require further attention to bring it back to its best.
Showing 100,558 miles on the odometer, this example comes complete with a sizeable history file including photos and invoices detailing its older restoration undertaken in 2003. Invoices relating to the recent maintenance work totalling circa £16,000, sundry invoices, old MoT test certificates and a UK V5 registration document. Presented with its desirable factory hardtop, this delightful example is offered without reserve and is an opportunity not to be missed!
