1996 Mercedes-Benz SL 320
Zoom icon


For the 1990-2002 year models, the R129 platform iteration of the Mercedes-Benz SL was in full effect. With a few minor updates here and there, the R129 SL was so popular that Mercedes was actually able to keep it in production with minimal changes for 12 years straight! That just goes to show how lovable and popular these little cars were, even when new. Nowadays, these cars typically find their way into the hands of enthusiasts, and that's what makes this little red convertible stand out.

This example is of relatively low mileage when taking those on the current market into account as a whole. But don't let the mileage fool you; this car has received a new paint job and new interior within the last few years taking it back to almost new condition! Additionally, this car is wearing the original wheels which are styled in true Mercedes-Benz fashion, yet a nice break from the older designs that had been implemented on their products for many years. The exterior defects are minimal, and when the car was painted nearly all exterior black plastics were replaced. With this much recent exterior maintenance performed, the outside of the car hardly needs anything.

Step inside, and you'll be transported to a completely different place. The interior is finished in traditional Mercedes tan with classic wood accents. The interior of this car is strikingly lighter and more calming than the interior of other contemporary Mercedes-Benz products. The interior is very nice, clean, and complete showing only some minor wear on the steering wheel, seats, and on some buttons. This car is clean and complete, inside and out!

Overall, this car is in about the condition you can expect for a car with this mileage that has seen recent cosmetic maintenance. Top to bottom, this is a clean and cared-for example that won't last long at this price. The engine runs smoothly and quietly as any true Mercedes-Benz should; this is a clean example of German engineering inside and out!

We can assist you in delivery through our network of private and commercial carriers. Most of which can deliver the vehicle to your driveway. We assume no responsibility for damages or delays incurred once a vehicle is in a shipper's custody.
