This 1991 Mercedes-Benz 300SL was ordered from the Mannheim Branch and sold new in Germany. It was imported to the United States in 2020 by the selling dealer and currently shows 135,534 kilometers (84,216 miles). Finished in Midnight Blue (904) over Royal Blue (272), this 300SL features a leather-trimmed sport wheel, manual transmission, removable hardtop, and a fully automatic power soft top. Power comes from an M103 straight six and is transferred to the rear wheels via a 5-speed manual transmission. This triple blue R129 is currently offered with factory literature, four keys, and a clean Florida title.
The factory 8-hole wheels are free from any rash or blemishes and measure 16x8 on all four corners. The wheels are wrapped in Bridgestone Potenza tires up front and Laufenn S Fit EQ tires in the rear measuring 225/55 all around and reportedly have more than 80% tread life remaining.
The 3.0-liter M103 straight-six was rated at 188 horsepower when new and 192 ft-lbs of torque when new. It’s mated to a 717 manual 5-speed transmission and features an automatic limited slip differential (ASD). Recent service includes new brake pads, rotors, and a fresh battery. A slight noise from the differential is noted by the seller as being audible with the top up under acceleration. The differential has not been flushed.
This Midnight Blue R129 is offered with factory literature, an original tool kit, four keys, a matching hardtop, and full spare tire. Some records are included from the previous owner. A complete walk around video has been included by the seller and can be found below.
