It came fitted from the factory with the sought after options manual transmission and Kuehlmeister AC as well as in the most desirable convertible color of red. This particular 230SL has been a South Carolina car for it's entirety having been with it's most recent owner for almost 40 years. It is an all numbers matching car with all of those specific essentials like engine compartment spot welds and fender indents. This is not a restored car, but one that has been well maintained and prized by both it's previous owners. Paint was done in the early 80's and shows as if it was done very recently with hardly a significant blemish to be found. Interior has also been updated along the way and still shows very nicely. An aftermarket radio has been installed but the working factory Blaupunkt radio is included. Comes with Original Owners manual, Service Booklet, Workshop Manuals and likely all service and maintenance parts ever replaced.
