Car description

1972 Mercedes-Benz 350 SL
First year of the R107 body style
I purchased this car as a fun driver about a year ago, however had a child recently and will need a 4 seater instead, so after having a lot of work done to the car, its time to pass it on now.
The car has zero rust which was my first priority, the paint although not original, looks absolutely fantastic - a real head turner with this deepmetallic blue and Palomino interior.Engine and transmission are excellent,runs and shifts smoothly, zero oilleaks .Replaced brakes (rotors, pads, lines, etc...)Replaced Alternator with a larger one in order to support modern stereo system w Amp, Bass, etc... as well as usb and phone chargers, etc...Replaced and repaired Air Conditioning system (new condenser, recharged system, hoses, belts, receiver dryer, new electric fan, etc..)Re-coiled and cleaned out original radiator, new hoses, thermostat, and belt for much cooler running carReplaced valve cover gaskets and tunes car for smooth running.Replaced all fluids, filters, had gas tank cleaned, all hoses and belts as well.Replaced all suspension bushings as well as all Shock Absorbers and Tires - all new for smooth, responsive and safe rideReplaced Steering coupler as it was worn out with new one for tight, responsive and safe steeringNew Battery and extensive re-wiring of electric system within the engine bayAll lights, interior and exterior, turn signals, etc... work well - it has the square EURO headlights which look a lot better on this car than the USA 4 headlight ones (in myopinion )
Have complete Retro Car stereo system including receiver - which fits perfectly in dash and original BECKER EUROPA faceplate can be used for original look- 4 speakers (they go in the original places for the car - dash and back), Amp, Kicker Bass Amp, all wiring, 2 USB outlets for iPod, phone charger, GPS, and any other aux you may need on the car without any holes or change to the integrity of the car.The stereo system has not been installed - in its original boxes - i paid $1,500 for the system and was quoted $300 for professional install with addedseparatefuse box for it. My priority was to have the carrunning smoothly and cool and everything working properly before the stereo, than life changed with the arrival of our baby and the stereodidn't get installed yet....
Interior has new Coco Mats and a vintage NARDI wood steering wheel ($2,000 item)- also have the original steering wheel in excellent conditionInterior in excellent condition as you can see in photos.
Convertible Navy top in excellent condition - looks brand new with tight fit - the side weather striping may need to be replaced for a tight weather proof aroundwindows - itwasn't a priority for me as only used the car with top down anyways... but its an easy replacement to do if wished.
Trunk is excellent, with original full size spare wheel + tire, original Jack and tool kit and owners manuals and troubleshooting manuals as well.
Hard top in excellent condition and includes storage dolly and cover -I removed from car and stored it in garage from day one.
The bumper kits are a German sport kit which was offered in the mid 1970's and 1980's all in excellent condition, also have theside skirts which were never installed on the car.I also have a set of original EURO style chrome bumpers if you rather go back to original look of the car - they are in fair condition and all components included for install.
Also a spare set of brake rotors are included.
My goal with this car was never as a "show car", but instead a reliable, saf, functional excellent looking driver to enjoy on weekends and sunny days to be able to drive anywhere including trips, and i have achieved that with it and it does get great positive attention whenever I do get a chance to take it out for a ride - brings a smile to my face from positive reaction of people as i drive by... good mood car i call it...
Ibelieve I described the car to the best of my ability in the above description and as many photos as I could think of, however feel free to ask me any questions you may have of course.
I do have the car for sale locally as well - my localvintage Mercedes shop has presented the car to some of his clients, so there may be some interest there as he knows the car well and is trusted by his clients... therefore I do reserve the right to end the auction at anytime should a deal be reached with one of his clients prior to eBay auction ending.
Winning bidder will need to make a deposit within 48 hours of winning bid and make full payment within 3 to 4 days as well as arrange shipping, etc... of course I will assist shipper to be sure the car is picked up from my location on Miami Beach with all the extra items as described above.
Good luck bidding on this fu, reliable, functional and great looking Classic 1972 Mercedes-Benz 350 SL.
