1998 Mercedes-Benz SL500. 145k miles. Dark Blue over Tan leather interior. Clean title, just passed smog, and tags paid for another year.

I bought this car planning to keep it forever. But plans change, I have a baby now, and the car is for sale. This is the perfect car to cruise up the 101 in, and it’s great on road trips. I did a ton of preventative maintenance, and it’s clearly been looked after by its previous owners as well.

Everything works, even the clock and thermometer! New convertible top and completely rebuilt top hydraulic system. HID Headlights. All the vacuum stuff works great: the doors and trunk unlock quickly, the HVAC vents open and close, etc.

The color is called Black Opal, though it’s really more of a dark blue. It’s a great color.

Work done over the last 2 years: All fluids and filters replaced at least once. Cam oil tubes upgraded, with valve cover gaskets. New water pump, belt, and belt tensioner, breather hoses, and hood pad. Went through the vacuum system, replaced all of the lines on top of the engine that crumble due to heat, replaced blocks and actuators.

Car had a Mercedes factory remanufactured transmission installed circa 2008. Rearview mirror, and interior trim replaced. Alpine head unit, comes with the factory head unit and CD player. Comes with color matched hardtop.

Newer Michelin tires with 80 - 90% tread.

I have a ton of spare parts and extras that can go with the car if desired.

Contact me for a walkaround video including top operation.
