Chassis No: 1070462A018141
MOT: February 2021
Finished in white with dark blue check interior and dark blue hood, this attractive example of Mercedes' flagship 500 SL model was purchased by the previous keeper from Peter Jarvis Cars in 2005 with 84,000 miles recorded. During that ownership it was maintained by Summit Cars of Tadworth from whom the vendor, a Mercedes enthusiast, acquired it in 2019. The mileage was then 86,000. It was driven to his home in Scotland (performing faultlessly) and has recently had some £2,000 spent (invoices available) on the fuel and braking systems, removal of the immobiliser, new mats from the SL Shop and replacement of an electric window. Benefiting from cruise control and Bluetooth it now registers c.89,000 miles. Offered with Owner's Manual, maintenance record with 20 stamps up to 85,000 miles, old MoTs since 2001, invoices from 2000, hard top in white with stand and cover, original spare tyre, emergency triangle, original jack and tools, it is only available for sale due to a lack of garage space. Said to look and drive "very well", a fresh MoT and Waxoyl application to the underside are expected by the time of sale.
