WORD LIMIT PROHIBITS. 1991 Mercedes 300SL One Owner Since New! 71,363 Miles 5-Speed Manual Transmission Black Exterior / Tan Leather Factory Hardtop CONSIGNMENT SALE VIN: FA61E8MF025315 Paint & Upholstery: Black Paint (040), Creme Beige Leather (275) Optional Equipment: ASD- Auto Locking Diff (211), LF Orthopedic Seatback (404), Black Soft Top (740), Electric Heated Front Seats (873) Evolve Motors & Chicago Car Club are pleased to present this 1991 Mercedes 300SL! We are selling this lovely ‘91 R129 300SL on behalf of the family of the gentleman who owned it since new, who recently passed. The car is unmodified, adult-owned, and will come with full documentation from new, including the original $81,055 window sticker from Arenson Motors of Center Point, Iowa. That’s $145,500 today! The car had an inspection and subsequent servicing in mid-2015, and is ready to be enjoyed by its next owner. Exterior: First off, paint. Black paint is original, with the exception of a resprayed front right fender (confirmed with an elcometer) and shows very nicely. We really like the two-tone black/grey color scheme on these cars, particularly over the beige leather interior. There are a couple very minor chips scattered about, as would be consistent with a car with 71k miles, as well as a couple spots on the hood where the clear coat is showing its age. However there are no significant scratches. The body is in nice shape, though there is a ding on the front lip of the driver’s side of the hood, a couple dings in the plastic front grille, as well as a couple very light door dings on the driver door. All glass is clear and crack free. Factory hardtop is in excellent shape and is easily removable. Interior: Creme Beige leather looks great, and is far less common than the black leather so many of these cars were optioned with. This particular car was optioned with an orthopedic driver’s seatback, as well as seat heaters, and is extremely comfortable and supportive. The interior is nice and ergonomic, dogleg 5-speed gear lever is exactly where you’d want it to be. There is little wear in the interior; there are no tears or scuffs, though the shift boot shows its age a bit, and there is some discoloring on the center console where your elbow would rest. Both front seats are in nice shape, with just light, regular wear. All lights and signals are functional inside and out, as are powered seats, seat heaters, mirrors, and locks. R134a air conditioning does kick on, but the blower motor is not functioning, so air does not blow out with any force. Original head unit is in place, though not currently functional. Speakers, however, are good. Under the Hood / Underbody: The car’s 3.0L DOHC 24-valve 6-cylinder suits the car nicely. The car doesn’t feel quite like a straight-line weapon like the 500SL and 600SL of the same vintage, rather, it feels well balanced and light on its feet. With that said, the car is plenty quick, and the manual transmission allows you to wind it out and get the sweet, subtle exhaust note. Suspension feels great; this car has no problem hammering through pothole-ridden streets and over speedbumps. The c
