This 1992 Mercedes 500SL has been in the same family ownership from new and was brought to us so it could be restored with longevity in mind to be passed down to the next generation of family members in years to come.


Our appraisal of the vehicles current condition formed the basis for a work schedule which was carried out over a 10 month period.


The vehicle was stripped to a shell and all parts catalogued and either sent for refurbishment or replaced with new.


Whilst the body shell of the 500SL was in our Bodyshop the mechanicals were being prepared at our main site this enabled the timeline to efficiently meet again for the reassembly.


The level of detailing was done to original specifications this ensures the vehicle was every bit as good as the day it left the factory, if not better.


These early R129 models are fast becoming a Modern Classic and we are seeing a new trend of enquiries to restore them.
