1995 MERCEDES-BENZ (R129) SL320

This 1995 Mercedes-Benz SL320 is a solid example of the marque’s refined convertible cruiser, presented in gorgeous Azurite Blue and in good overall condition. Its 3.2-litre straight-six engine produces around 228bhp and is coupled to a five-speed automatic transmission. The odometer currently indicates 72,503 miles from new, and the car is being sold at No Reserve.

This SL320 was first registered in March 1996 and is now offered for sale by a member of the motor trade. There are five previous keepers on the V5C.

The bodywork of this Mercedes is all in good shape, with flush shut lines, smooth panels and an attractive paint finish. The occasional stone chip can be seen on lower parts of the car, but the finish is in excellent condition and retains a consistent shine throughout. The electric soft top roof appears to fit very well, and has only slight age-related discolouration. While it left the factory with the standard eight-hole alloys, this SL has been upgraded to a set of 18-inch AMG ‘monoblock’ wheels, with a light kerbing graze on just one rim.

Inside, the beige leather upholstery is in excellent condition for its age, presenting with just some slight creasing. The vendor indicates there is some light water staining around the speaker grilles, though the interior will be valeted prior to handover. The walnut veneer which accents the dashboard has some light surface scratches, and the car was also specified with the wood inlays on the steering wheel. The car also features climate control, cruise control, and now has an aftermarket Kenwood head unit. All of the electrics work as they should and there are no warning lights on the dashboard.

The vendor indicates the car has been serviced regularly by Wards End Garage in Macclesfield since 2004, and there is a raft of paperwork in the history file covering previous maintenance and old MOT certificates.

The most recent MOT test was on 21 December 2020 at 71,783 miles, which resulted in a clean pass with no advisories. The tyres all appear to be in good condition.

Accompanying the vehicle are the original owner’s manual, guarantee booklet and security system guide, along with three keys and lots of paperwork as shown in the gallery.

This Mercedes-Benz SL320 is a clean and tidy example of the marque, which presents in highly original condition and with a handsome factory colour scheme. Fitted with a smooth straight-six engine and a slick automatic transmission, this modern classic convertible would make an excellent choice for anyone seeking a refined weekend cruiser.
