SL Hardtops
Hey Guys!

Well, it has come to my attention that we have over 20 vintage SL hardtops in our storage facility that have gon unclaimed for 5+ years. Please, if anyone needs an SL hardtop please let me know. We have hardtops from 1970's up to the late 90's. All different colors. I do not know if we will sell them or give them away, but I thought I would give you guys a shot to see who needs anything. Even though I work for corporate, I am just offering some help. Please don't flag, this is not for the financial interest of Mercedes-Benz USA. I will try to get pictures as soon as possible.


PS- I am going to take stock tonight and list what we have.

If this is legit?????, I could use one for a 1982 380sl. I'd like to see a picture first. Also, how about a phone number.

SL Hardtops
Yes, it's legit- at this moment I am waiting on the full inventory. I am aware of a hardtop that would fit your car in signal red that is in storage. More details to come guys. I am just waiting on the go for specifically what we are doing with them. As you can imagine, we are in manhattan, and most people have no room for their hardtops in the summer, thus we stored them as courteousy. Over the years, i guess people just forgot about them...

Wouldn't have a panoramic top for a 129 would you?

Pano Roof
Yes, I saw one in white back there- but i am SURE an employee will walk away with that one...

Even if you don't NEED a hardtop, it might be worth getting one as a spare. I know this because I've priced the "little parts" on the hardtops - the brightwork on the bottoms of the windows, the locks...a few hundred here, several hundred there, and pretty soon, you are talking about money. I'm driving 600 round-trip miles to get a hardtop because I got a good deal on it (bad headliner) and I need two pieces of brightwork.

Hi Mike - I just got my first SL last month and it's been off the road for the Winter, sign me up for a Pano too.

I have a 83 380Sl and would like a hard top too!! My car is silver.

My car W107 is silver too, but I would live with a blue hardtop is you don't have a second Astral Silver one going spare

Have an 81 380 SL with dark blue exterior.Would be interested in one with this color or anyone available.Thanks,Lou

Hi Mike,

I could use one of those hardtops,too, ideally in black, but I'd be willing to have one painted. I could also pick it up in NYC, which would save you the problem of shipping it out.

Thanks in advance.

matthias08 01-19-2008 03:26 PM

... actually... we could use one as well :)
its red... but the car is going in for paint... so it doesn't matter.

I would want a panorama hard top for my r129 silver if possible...

droederer 01-25-2008 02:23 PM

I need a 1986 560SL Black would be Great.
