This superb R129 Mercedes 500SL is finished in Metallic "Blue Black" with with Cream Beige Leather Upholstery and has covered just 45,494 miles from new. This is actually my own car from my small personal collection and is a truly fabulous example throughout, with the original leather wallet and handbooks all present as well as the original service booklet and even an original sales brochure. Supplied new on 3rd January 1991 by Robinsons Mercedes of Norwich to Alan Bowkett, chairman of Boulton & Paul and later Norwich City football club, the car is an original UK car with comprehensive history in the way of invoices and MOT's across it's life to verify the mileage as correct, as well as 13 stamps in the original service book, most recently serviced by Mercedes-Benz of Bury St Edmunds at 45,376 miles in December 2018. Having covered only covered limited miles (2,000) in the past decade, in my ownership the car has also received a transmission fluid and filter change, as well as new coolant, brake fluid and fuel filter, all using genuine parts. It is as good underneath as you would expect of a low mileage car that has lived in dry storage. The car has also had all four alloy wheels professionally refurbished and really is as good as it looks in the photographs. The roof mechanism works perfectly and the (black) fabric hood and perspex rear window are in near perfect condition - I would guess the hard top has been on the car most of its life. On the road the car drives superbly with good oil pressure, no smoke and no creaks or rattles, quite amazing for a car that is coming up to 30 years old! The car is a 1991 "H" registration but currently has my "500 UYP" registration on the car which is available by separate negotiation. Ready for the next owner, the car would make perfect Goodwood transport or simply for summer trips to the coast or touring holidays!
