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.

-Mike

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...

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 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.
