Wasn't this car sold? Yes, it was, about 6 months ago, to a good friend and customer. He recently bought a Bentley, a new M4, and a G63--and there is no space. So I was tickled to buy it back from him, and even nicer than it left.

This was a lucky find. The R129 SL's are are eally begininng to come alive in the market, and this is a superb example. It was sold new at Carriage House Mercedes in Atlanta (MB South Atlanta now), and has been in one family since new. Paint condition is remarkable and original, interior is super nice, dash, wood and trim are exceptional, as is the top. It appears this car was maintained with an open checkbook. She also has the period correct Nardi/BBS wheels, installed when new at the dealer, in excellent shape with new Continental tires (the factory wheels were awful at this time). Factory antenna (most are broken, do you know what this costs?). Rubber Mercedes mats on top of carpet mats.....you get the idea. Glass, plastic and trim are in super condition, ashtray and lighter unused,  I have the factory wind deflector (these are almost $900 at your dealer now, if you can find one). Oh, and she also has a new hi end Alpine CD receiver, with lots of functions, and Bluetooth too, freshly installed. Yes, I have the original in a box.  I also have the books and the original window sticker.

Yes, only 61000 MILES! We have put her through the shop, and she is ready! No top issues, hard top looks like new and has a new liner, AND she just had a new AC evaporator, receiver and drier--a common repair at this age. I also just had a full transmission service with new electrical connector last week, as well as replacing some sightly weak trunk shocks. BE CAREFUL ! Yes, you can buy SL's for thousands less. But the SL that you save $5000 on today will be the one that you're spending $7500 on next month. Make sure you are dealing with someone with the right experience and knowledge (yes, me).

Have you attempted to buy any kind of fun car in this price range? Most are junk, and no amount of money will make them nice. This is  a great place to land, and still worth something if you decide you want more car (or cars...). I have NOT seen an SL in this price range that is as nice as this one. 

Great opportunity to have fun and makes good economic sense. Cars like this will not be around much longer. Enjoy while you can!

Meet Allen

For over 30 years, Encore Motors has been providing individuals with unique, rare cars that have been hand-picked by Allen and his late father, RC Akin. They were constantly queried about what cars to buy, how to keep them looking so good, and where friends could find cars like theirs. To use their banker’s term, Encore Motors was founded to “legitimize” their car hobby, and Encore still continues to promote the concepts of honesty, integrity and fun in the buying, driving, and maintaining of fine cars.
