History of the 420 SL
The vehicle was built in 1986 and was purchased by me in 1989 with very few
kilometers. In 1989 the vehicle was brought over to South Africa and has since been registered in my name. All import documents and the original German registration papers are available.
Service and repairs were done at ABERG, a local Mercedes-registered workshop, (German/Austrian. Owner). After the sale of the company, service and repairs
were carried out by the former specialist mechanic in charge there. In the last year, within the scope of a complete overhaul, some rust spots were removed as well as the exchange of the inner side plate in the engine compartment on the left. Reason for this was that leaking brake fluid had attacked the metal causing it to rust. With this state of affairs it made sense for me to restore the body as well, where great care was taken to keep the car as original as possible. Removal of the engine, overhaul of all agregates, dismantling of all movable parts - doors, fenders, hoods etc. The complete painting was done in the original color by a qualified workshop.
The interior is in a good and well-kept condition according to the age. Also the carpet inner lining has been renewed (although it was still in good condition). For this purpose I bought new, imported carpet material. The softtop is, except for small open seams, in good condition, black on the outside, cream on the inside. The hardtop is complete and in good condition. With the vehicle, -a second softtop, black/black. The general condition can be described as Good +.
