Collector Class: 1991 Mercedes-Benz 300SL

The R129 Mercedes-Benz SL roadster is destined to be a Pebble Beach concours classic in the future (when we have self-driving flying cars) and might be tempted to get a monster V12 version…but those were always mated to a recalcitrant slushbox…so you should consider a manual gearbox equipped inline-6 version. Find this 1991 Mercedes-Benz 300SL offered for $23,995 in SF Bay Area, CA. Tip from FuelTruck.

The sad truth is that you can get about 3 to 4 examples of the R129 SL in running/driving condition for the asking price of this particular example, but when looking for one that could be a standout in a few decades, it almost always pays to have the nicest example…and this one is nice.  Expect the 3.0 liter M104 inline-6 to produce 228 silky smooth horsepower for years with minimum fuss.

See another blue car? I like blue.
