Description for Mercedes-Benz SL-Class 1966

This is a Southern California car that I purchased four years ago in Beverly Hills. California and shipped to my home in Ohio by enclosed transport. The car was restored by the previous owner. with new high quality paint (color changed from white to silver). complete interior renovation (seats. door panels. dash surfaces. wood refinished. hard top headliner. carpeting. etc). new soft top (including headliner). and bumpers and wheel caps chrome plated. Floor panels. trunk bottom and fenders are original. and all body panels are entirely straight and have very good gaps European model with 4 speed standard transmission. European headlights. and metric gauges. Original engine and original glass. Four like new tires. Includes original owner's manual and complete service records from the 1970s to current. The paint is beautiful with no rust or scratches or scuffs or dents or chips. except one very small stone chip between the top surface of the front bumper and the bottom of the front grill (shown as a small dot in the photo of the front of the car) and one very small paint chip inside the car behind the seats where the top of the boot comes against the interior panel (shown as a small dot in the photo of that location). The chrome is all excellent. including bumpers. soft top struts. window trim. dash panel gauges and door handles. The car shows virtually as new. except that the underside and engine compartment have not been detailed. The car is strong and drives and brakes extremely well. with no engine noise or miss or smoke and with a very smooth shifting transmission and smooth clutch. There are no leaks under the car. I am a retired engineer and not a dealer. and all information is to the best of my belief and is based upon information from the previous owner who restored the car. I would conservatively rate the car as a 2 or 2+ condition based upon the Haggerty classic car condition ratings. Car is located in an eastern suburb of Cleveland (Russell Township).
