This well maintained, 3-owner SL in rare color combination of burgundy (MB Desert Red) with tan interior has been in the desert its entire life. With less than 50k on the clock, it's always been garage-kept and has a clean CARFAX. The matching hard top includes a top stand & cover. The brown soft top looks new and was replaced in 2003.

All paint appears to be original except the hood which was just repainted to correct a blemish that would not polish out. Paint meter readings for all other panels are consistent

All service records since new are included as are the original jack, tools, books and Pirelli spare. Factory A/C blows cold. The original, correct chrome alloy wheels are free of curb rash and equipped with brand new top-of-line Michelin tires. A major $3k service was completed in August 2016 by local MB experts noting no additional work is required.

The original owner was a well-known auto industry executive. This is a private party transaction and comes with a clean AZ title in the owner's name.

This is a great opportunity to acquire one of the last of the classic 107-bodied SLs that are appreciating fast.
