This exterior of this 1991 Mercedes is in truly EXCELLENT virtually 100% rust-free garaged condition overall. The paint has a lustrous overall shine with only a few minor nicks, scratches and other light cosmetic blemishes. There is also one very small tear on one corner of the soft top which has some slight yellowing of the plastic windows. Overall this is one very well-preserved classic Benz Roadster!THE INTERIOR
As I hope is articulated in the photos, the interior of this non-smoker '91 Benz is in truly excellent condition overall with ALL systems in excellent working order! Being a nearly thirty year old car there is some expected light wear on this immaculate and still comfortable well-built German cockpit!THE DRIVING EXPERIENCE
This 1991 300SL starts easily with very good running engine, smooth shifting transmission along with excellent braking and tight yet supple suspension. While it won't keep up with a new AMG roadster, the engine revs willingly in all gears and is still a vault-like stately cruiser especially on a sunny afternoon! videos: https://youtu.be/vQyvDERl-and https://youtu.be/Bkk_ENHhQW8 THE DETAILS AND $$$$
