This 1991 Mercedes-Benz 300SL was sold new in Pennsylvania in June 1991 and remained in the state until the seller acquired the car in 2021. Finished in Signal Red (568) over Anthracite (271) leather, power is provided by a 3.0L DOHC 24v M104 inline-six backed by a five-speed automatic transmission. Equipment includes automatic climate control, power-adjustable front seats with memory settings, power windows and mirrors, a black fabric top, rear “kinder seats”, acceleration skid control (ASR), and a matching removable hardtop. Recent service since April 2022 includes a new convertible top main cylinder, head gasket, fan clutch, water pump, radiator flush, and an oil and filter change. This R129 now shows 38k miles from new and is now offered by the selling dealer in Ohio with original manufacturer’s literature, two original keyfobs, a clean Carfax report, and a clean Ohio title.
