Hello and thanks for taking the time to check out my wife's mighty Mercedes 500SL.

Before you read further please be aware that our intention is to place the car in the Anglia Car Auctions classic sale on the 22nd of June. They are in Kings Lynn and hold around three or four classic sales each year.   

I am a classic car fan and have been to a couple of their auctions. picking up an old Mini van last time I was up there (not the Clubman estate pictured) and decided to sell through them this time around.

So the reason for this advert is to show any prospective buyer where they can go if they fancy having a bid - it's a fun afternoon out if you like classic cars even if you don't want to buy one!


The Mercedes was registered in August '91 and was originally on a J plate. The previous owner added the F8MUM plate. which the DVLA have valued at £1000. and it will stay on the car.

The mileage today is 58. 49 but we may drive it between now and the 22nd and the drive to Kings Lynn will tip it over 59k.

There have been just four owners in total - the last three being ladies and there is a good amount of history including the service book with 12 stamps. a good number of MOT certificates and various invoices.

It was recently serviced and MOT'd (with no advisories) and to rectify a misfire they replaced the plugs and distributor caps.  While they were investigating they mentioned that the terminals on a couple of the HT leads were corroded so I asked them to replace the set also.

There is stacks of tread on all four Michelin tyres and the wheels are in pretty good condition with only some light kerbing on the fronts - none of the normal lacquer peeling that I've seen on lots of other Mercs.

The bodywork. in my opinion. nbsp;is in all round excellent condition. It's a 22 year old car so of course there is the odd mark but nothing. in my opinion. nbsp;that warrants attention.

The interior. likewise. is very good. As you probably know. the outer bolster on the driver's seat often wears through - this one has some cracking in the leather (patina) but is not split and is kept supple with hide feed. The roller cover on the centre armrest box is missing but I have sourced a replacement that I will leave in the car.

Unfortunately we very rarely use the Mercedes (being a 3rd car) and have driven less than 1000 miles in the last two years especially as it only comes out on sunny days!

Of course. nbsp;opinions will vary as to the condition and value of a 22 year old car.  I subscribe to Practical Classics magazine and they estimate the 500SL R129 as Concours/dealer £13k. Condition 1 £9k. Condition 2 £5k. I would say the Mercedes is a very good condition 2 and close to 1. Earlier this year I was offered £6250 in a p/ex with a classic Mini by a Mercedes specialist. I'm waiting for Anglia Car Auctions to come back to me with their opinions as to its value and will be guided by them as to reserve prices etc.  In their last sale a 1990 300SL with around 35. 00 miles went for £8. 37 so I'm guessing they may say somewhere between £6 - £8k but. like I sad. I'll be guided by them.

Included in the sale will be a roof hoist and matching hardtop (pictured). roof stand. wind deflector (and number plate).

Feel free to ask me any questions but as we are not desperate to sell the car (and will probably regret it if we do) we wont be considering any silly offers. Thanks for looking

Unfortunately we are not around much this month so viewings at home would be difficult but I will aim to drive it to Kings Lynn on Thursday 20th  .
