1991 R129 Mercedes 500 SL V8 32 Valve 306 Bhp
Full Restoration Just Completed
74000 Miles 14 Stamp History
Concours Example
100 + HD Images

Another sublime R129, emanating from the same home that our 300 SL-24 comes
from, beautifully restored with patience and enthusiasm, as mentioned in my
other advert, dismiss other examples you may have viewed or had assurances
on how complete they are, this is simply as good as it gets. Both
cars would win any shows they entered other cars are on the market. This is
a concours example, restored this year starting off with a very solid example
with no rot, once again being treated to meticulous standards (detailed in
full below), leaving nothing out. Seeking a person who shares equally high
standards and/or the serious collector looking for the very best pound notes
can buy.

J421 DYP
the 5.0 32 valve 306 bhp engine is the go-to engine of choice for the majority
of prospective classic SL buyers. The power is flexible, it drives like a modern
car with totally effortless performance in any gear at any time, whether posing
or cruising it’s a pleasure. First registered and pre delivery inspected by a
Mercedes dealer in Germany and brought to the Uk immediately.

Full restoration with barely a few hundred miles covered since. Completed to
an extremely high standard, the paintwork must be seen in the metal to fully
appreciate both the level of preparation and the quality of the finish. Equally,
the fine nappa leather is the best money can buy, and, trimmed to a very
professional standard.

Coachwork
Full body strip down and existing paint stripped back to the bare metal. A
Complete repaint to the highest standard.

Alloys
Carefully refurbished and repainted, matching Dunlop tyres.

New stainless-steel exhaust (full system)

Cabin

seats / rear seats and door cards. New Carpet mats.

Service History & Care
14 Stamp service record, as can be gleaned from above, this is ready to be
used showed or stored. Original service book, always maintained by recognised
specialists, no outstanding matters. Take note of the images of the underside.

Summary
There never was a car like the R129 in the annals of motoring history,
there probably never will be again. The market has woken up to what
these elusive examples represent, and this is a unique car fresh to the
market. The SL is the best example of substitution in the classic world,
meaning that those who are priced out of one generation automatically look
at a newer generation that is more affordable. The R129 s depreciation
finally bottomed out some time ago. I have probably overstressed the message
already, however, this is an outstanding Mercedes. The classic colour schemes
can only enhance the long-term residual of this enduring classic that should
now rightly be wrapped away being brought out on dry days, a superb investment.
Difficult vehicles to value, this is priced for what is the best
of cars.
