Description

FOR SALE; EU Model // Matching Number // Nut and Bolt Restoration

EXTERIOR
Finished in a liquid shade of Silver this SL presents in stunning condition having been subjected to a 3 year full nut and bolt, frame off restoration culminating in 2016. The finished product is second to none with the paint work laid onto to perfection onto an arrow straight and smooth metal body.

The chrome work is fitted liberally as standard and does not disappoint in condition or beauty. Rubber seals have been replaced and remain soft and supple while lights and glass show as new, clear and crack free.

INTERIOR
The interior theme for this incredible drop top is blue, which contrasts with the silver exterior paint extremely well with a matching silver painted dashboard bringing the interior and exterior together. Having been fully restored and recovered the whole interior is as new with soft blue leather on the seats, door cards, sun visors and dash top complimented with brand new blue carpets, a blue soft top and a matching leather cover.

Chrome knobs and dials make up the classic dash with a modern but retro look radio fitted in the centre. A smooth Ivory coloured steering perfects the look and alongside the matching gear knob provides the subtle tactile connection to classic car motoring in style.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The superbly clean engine bay shows in the same vain as the rest of the car. Fully rebuilt and in excellent working order. It fires into life on the first turn of the key, idles smoothly and provides ample drive to propel itself and occupants through country roads or famous promenades alike.

The gearbox is smooth and easy in its operation.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Fitted to the steel wheels are sporting chrome centre caps and wheel surrounds, all of which show as new. Tyres are matching and courtesy of Michelin, fitted and date stamped in 2016 as the car finished its restoration. Brakes work as the should having been fully overhauled at the same time.

HISTORY FILE
