This Mercedes-Benz glass panoramic removable hardtop is finished in Black (040) and was built for use on 1990-2002 R129 series cars of the era. The top features a steel frame, a glass panoramic roof with a retractable sunshade, glass windows, and anthracite vinyl trim. This R129 SL hardtop is now offered from the seller in New York with a rolling hardtop stand and fitted hardtop cover.
The top is finished in Black (040) and features a panoramic glass roof and glass windows with painted steel bodywork along the frame. The original Alarm Code stickers from the factory are present on the side windows and visible in the gallery below. Each glass panel retains its original factory insignia and no chips or scratches in the glass are present according to the seller.
The interior of the top features a retractable sunshade and grab handles on both the driver and passenger sides. The sunshade operates smoothly and extends/retracts as designed without issue.
The non-glass interior surfaces are trimmed in Anthracite vinyl and present in good condition with no separation from the frame. Additional photos showing the condition of the interior surfaces are provided in the gallery. The top has been tested and all latch points operate correctly when mated with an R129 chassis vehicle. Rubber and felt trim points appear in good condition with no major deterioration or obvious wear. The seller reports that the top is free from any dings, scratches or other notable imperfections.
The glass panoramic hardtop option was an expensive, but worthwhile option on the R129 SLs. Cars with the pano roof regularly trade much higher than their peers and, given the fact that a new one from Mercedes-Benz will cost you over $20,000, their scarcity on the used market is obvious. If you have an SL1/SL2 R129 that's missing a pano roof, here's your chance to make it the perfect spec SL. Note that, with so little body paint on these hardtops, a simple (and cheap) wrap or paint job can allow this top to match your SL with little cost and effort. This Pano top comes with a fitted protective cover to use when not in use as well as the movable stand. Act now because the used market for these Pano tops is starting to outpace the cost of some high-mileage SLs as a whole.
