1992 Mercedes-Benz 500SL

grn1

A new week, a new R129. This reason I chose this 500SL was of course this wonderfully 90s color of Teal Blue Metallic combined with Lago Metallic. It’s one of those love it or hate color combinations that are tied to an era. You don’t see a lot of colors like these on new cars, if any. But I think of it like the rainbow of colors from the 70s and 80s that were featured on the W115, W123, R113, and so on. These crazy color combos are now admired over the typical sliver, black or even worse, tan. The thing is, color combinations like this only work if they are taken care of. And this 1992 500SL for sale in St. Louis certainly looks like it was.

This is a fantastic opportunity to own a very well cared for Two Owner, 1992 Mercedes Benz 500SL Convertible with”Only 71K. It is the most rare after color combination there is the Beautiful Blue/Green Metallic with Tan Leather Interior.
Appears to be all Original Paint
Comes with both Tops
All Original a True Classic with everything right.
Books and manuals, all complete.This car was owned by an older women for the last 21 years. She only drove the car in the summer and it was stored inside under cover the rest of the time. This was only a toy she had several other cars.This is the right Car with all the right things that will make increase in value, a Classic for sure. It is the Right Color, is in Fantastic Condition,Low Mileage, the sought after rare Factory Color only offered for a short time. and has been very well preserved.
The 500SL option over the 300SL. It holds its value far better on the used market. It is far superior in performance and
It has the bigger Factory Wheels, more horsepower along with some other upgrades to the body and interior trim.This Mercedes is incredibly clean, with Very Low Mileage and spent it’s entire life in the garage. Every where you look this car is very clean.
It was always serviced at the Mercedes Dealer since new, with it last service March of 2016 which was around $2000.
These cars are finally getting some talk about how undervalued they are.
It comes with a clean Autocheck (No Accidents).These Cars are finally being to be sought after and are beginning to rise in awareness and value. A Completely Original BMW Convertible that is in this Very Very Good Condition, are getting hard to find and with the low mileage.This car could be an Everyday Driver or a Fun and Inexpensive Weekend Toy.The Exterior: is in very very nice condition. The Beautiful Blue/Green Paint, has great shine and depth with very very minor scratches or rock chips or very small door dings, visible only under very close inspection (Really None).
The car has never been in an accident comes with a “Clean AutoCheck”.

This car also comes with the Upgraded Factory Alloy Wheels with near new Michelin Tires.
The Power Convertible top works perfectly and the Soft top itself is still in fantastic condition the back window is crystal clear, with matching Hardtop

The Interior: is also in great condition with very little wear. Very good Condition and is completely stock. Still has the Factory Stereo that sounds fantastic, the carpet and Power Leather Seats show very little wear. The entire interior is in fabulous condition.

The pictures do not do this Mercedes justice, it is better in person.

This Car runs and drives Unbelievably Well. It comes with the 8cyl. 5.0 L.Engine that has the performance but yet the economy.
It has great power and drives tight. The Transmission shifts smooth, this makes this car a real pleasure to drive. The A/C works great as does everything works as it should.

There may be cheaper ones out there but they are not like this Mercedes Convertible.
This is a beautiful car that has been pampered its entire Life.

This is a very well cared for Two Owner Mercedes 500SL Convertible, with Extremely Low Mileage, and in Beautiful Condition, makes this a “DON’T MISS OPPORTUNITY”!

Outside of this color combo, the dealer only maintenance and repairs is a real strong point of this car. This owner sounds a bit clueless in the auction description with generalizations and even calling this a BMW at one point, so it’s often the best when someone like this takes their car to the dealer and just says ”fix everything”.  The paint pops remarkably well and the interior looks better than most of the ’92s I see for sale.

Asking just a hair under $10,000, this ’92 is priced is fairly competitively. Prices are generally all over the board on the R129 with the cheapest examples being on the wrong side of town for a few thousand bucks, to the baby boomers garage queen in his planned neighborhood who thinks his can sell his 60,000-mile 1996 SL500 for $25,000 because he paid a fortune for it new and ”it’s a Mercedes”. I don’t know what to make of these going into future. They made and sold a ton of these and outside of the M120 V12 cars, they aren’t rare at all. R107 values are trending upwards, but only for the most pristine examples. Having this generation span 12 years meant that almost every two years saw some sort of updates and by the time we hit the end of the generation, almost everything was updated from the original car launched in 1990. So if you fancy the early R129 with a bright color combo and factory service records, this one might be the right car for you.

  1. Count me under Love it

  2. Gorgeous, love it.

  3. Absolutely gorgeous color outside, but miserable interior color. It needs brasil brown or black inside.

  4. Love the car, hate the seller. Not only does he sound foolish but his ebay feedback is not the best with two people claiming he misrepresented cars in the past 6 months. PPI is a must with this one.
