1982 Mercedes-Benz 500 SL Pre-AMG Merger Roadster


Here are the differences between RM Sotheby’s Miami car which sold for $291k and this example:

The car comes with the original BBS basket wheels and the correct 5-star wheels which are currently on the car. The original sun visors, rear floor mats, tools and spare are included as well.  The exhaust is not original to the car.

The only changes that have been made under current ownership are the wheels and the seats which were replaced with restored, AMG-correct Recaros.

Los Angeles AMG expert, Henric Nienimen, once told the current owner that the steering wheel is from a later, possibly 1985, AMG Mercedes.

Based on paint meter readings, the current owner believes the passenger-side front fender was once repaired and resprayed.  Paint is spider-cracking (see pics)

I can provide pictures of the original convertible top which has significant wear over time.
