Vehicle Story

This 1995 Mercedes-Benz SL500 convertible comes with a color-matched factory hardtop and a retractable black soft top, portraying a clean mechanical bill of health and having recently passed a Virginia state inspection. Power is provided by an M119 5.0-liter V8 paired with a 4-speed automatic transmission, and service records per the CARFAX show dealer-performed maintenance. Finished in Teal Blue Metallic over a perforated tan leather interior, this R129 500SL is now offered with a clean CARFAX report, service records, an air deflector, and a clear Virginia title in the seller’s name.

The R129-chassis fifth-generation SL first debuted in 1989 as a two-seat roadster with an automatically deploying rollbar. A facelift was rolled out beginning in 1994 that brought changes to the look of the front and rear lighting. This SL500 from the subsequent year is painted Teal Blue Metallic (888) and comes with a matching removable hardtop as well as the cloth power-operated retractable soft top. Condition according to the seller is unmodified, with the exterior featuring front fog lamps, color-matched lower cladding and bumpers, a power-operated antenna, and a trunk-mounted LED brake lamp.  

Factory 16” five-spoke aluminum wheels are shown in good condition, and according to the CARFAX report, the tires were replaced in 2014. Handling is assisted by power steering and power disc brakes, connected to an Acceleration Skid Control (ASC) stability system.

The cabin is upholstered with tan power-operated, memory-equipped perforated leather bucket seats with matching door panels, center console, and carpeting. Surroundings are accented in burled wood trim throughout, including portions of the leather-wrapped steering wheel. Power options include windows, door locks, cruise control, illuminated vanity mirrors, and air conditioning with automatic climate control, as well as a tilting and telescoping steering wheel. Audio comes from an AM/FM head unit with a remote 6-disc changer, and a satellite radio receiver has been added. An air deflector is included which mounts behind the seats.

Instrumentation is provided by a 160-mph speedometer, a 7k-rpm tachometer, an analog clock, and surrounding gauges for fuel economy, fuel level, coolant temperature, and oil pressure. The digital odometer reads 129k miles, which is a true original reading per the seller.

The M119 dual-overhead-camshaft 5.0-liter V8 carried a factory rating of 315 horsepower and 347 lb-ft of torque. The CARFAX report shows service items performed in 2015 by a Mercedes-Benz dealership in New Jersey, including a four-wheel alignment, an oil change, and replacement of the shifter bushings and drag link. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a 4-speed automatic transmission.

Additional undercarriage photos can be found in the gallery.

The CARFAX report shows no accidents or damage on record, and the car passed a Virginia state safety inspection in May 2021. The sale includes service records dating back about three years.

@firebird301 – No rust unless your talking about surface rust on the exhaust. I enclosed pictures of the underside from every angle I could . I will be glad to take pictures of any area you may have a concern about. Thanks for looking! ...

I’m trying Roger!

Just a quick comment from the owner of a 96 SL500 (and previous owners of a couple others). The prices on these SLs are more steeply influenced by miles than most other cars. This is a mistake in part because prospective bidders should be more concerned about the maintenance history of these cars than the miles. I'd feel better owning one of these with 130K miles that has had loving care throughout it's life than once with only 60K miles that had ownership by someone who would go years between oil changes and wouldn't fix problems as they came up.

@Deb – Hi Roger. Thank you for the updates. I’m watching the bids and I would love to own this vehicle! Perhaps it will be mine! Thanks. ...

I wish you the best! It’s really clean and runs excellent. I think you would enjoy driving it top on or off. If you have any additional questions please feel free to ask.😊

@firebird301 – I did a driving video this morning that I asked my representative to add. It will probably be tomorrow. I’d just like to say that this car has no issues, everything works as it should. The AM/FM/Cassette works perfect as well as the 6 disc CD changer and the Sirus Satellite Radio. All the gauges and lights function. Feel confident you can drive this SL any distance. Since I’ve owned it it has been serviced by the President of the Mercedes Benz club in Virginia. Thanks Roger ...

@Czerwonka – Pictures 25 -26- 27 -30 -36- 37 all seem to show deficits in the body / paint finish. Is the paint peeling or degrading on this vehicle? Has this vehicle been in an accident? Is there any rust on this vehicle? Are you the original owner? Thank you MichaelCzerwonka Louisville Kentucky ...

There are no blemishes in the paint anywhere. The paint job is like new. I can only summarize they are reflections of something in the paint. No accidents, Carfax confirms that. Runs great, everything works, Ice cold AC. Come and drive it and Im sure you will be amazed at how new this car rides and feels. Thanks Firebird301

Good morning, I’m Roger the owner of this Mercedes. I have never seen a cleaner SL. It’s clean everywhere and has always been garaged and serviced by Mercedes technicians. Please ask any questions. Everything on this car functions as new. No issues. Very rare color. Clean CARFAX. I’ve submitted pictures of the hardtop installed that should be posted soon. Drive this car any distance.
