This is one of the most classic Mercedes roadsters- undoubtedly familiar to you (unless you are my daughters age or younger). Built from 1971 to 1989, it is also one of the longest running production cars, ever. I can't count the number of placements this car had in TV and movies- but, Eddie Murphy's girlfriend in Beverly Hills Cop had one- making me want one (or was it Stephanie Powers, or the Ewings). The SL went through a-lot of mechanical changes over 17 years, however the basic profile really didn't change and it maintained the great big school bus sized steering wheel throughout. This is the last iteration made from 86' to 89'. The build and ride quality is amazing for something designed in the late 60's- and with the V8 engine- feels as powerful as you would expect of many modern luxury cars. And, it has an analog clock that ticks... and outside temperature gauge. Very retro cool. I acquired this in summer 2017 and it has been a favorite for myself and my two sons to drive in the summer.
