Mercedes-Benz 500 SL 1985 (B) Blue
SPECTACULARLY RESTORED MERCEDES 500 SL AUTO (107 SERIES)
Supplied by Alan Day in London and first registered on 16th April 1985 and finished in the beautiful Nautic Blue Metallic with Blue check cloth trim including rear child seats with seat belts, Blue carpets, Tinted & laminated front windscreen, electric Windows + Passenger Door Mirror, Headlamp Wash/Wipe, new Blue Mohair Soft Top, body coloured Hard Top, 4973cc Engine, Automatic transmission, Power Steering, Cruise Control, ABS Brakes and original Mercedes 'cookie cutter' Alloy Wheels.
This car was purchased from us by the current keeper in 2011 for £10,000 and was then the subject of a mechanical restoration by Mercedes specialist Colin Ferns in Richmond, Surrey totalling just over £5,500 and then a major body restoration by Hilton & Moss in Stansted, Essex during 2012 costing in excess of £26,000. The list of parts replaced is too long to list here, but all of the invoices for the works are contained in the file.
In total he has spent almost £33,000 on the car (not including purchase price) and it is now in almost "as new" condition throughout.
The car has only had 4 former keepers from new and copies of all the previous ownership details are contained in the history file. It has now covered 93,000 miles with a Full and comprehensive Service History including its original Pre delivery Inspection Sheet from Alan Day, a copy of the Data Card, its original Handbook pack and manuals and invoices for various works carried out on the car over the years.
Upon completion of the restoration works, the car was inspected by the Mercedes Benz Club in August 2012 and given a valuation of £24,500, but since then of course the prices of 107 series SL's have increased significantly and this example would certainly now be valued in excess of £30,000, so for a car of this quality, it represents excellent value for money.
The car is simply stunning in every respect, drives superbly and really must be seen to be fully appreciated. It will come with our own customer care package including 12 months MOT, HPI/provenance Checks, 55-point pre-delivery inspection and 6 months mechanical breakdown Parts & Labour Warranty which can be upgraded and extended at additional cost if required.
