This is every guys dream car: classic white 1971 350SL convertible 3.5litre V8...

The ultimate cruising car, perfect for top-down trips to Mission Bay or Ponsonby Road or to make a great impression on a first date..

This is a connoisseurs car.

She has a wonderful low rumble, the seats fit like a well worn glove, and of course she turns heads everywhere you go..

Car can easily be viewed in Grey Lynn or Westhaven any time that suits you. I can work with you to get it shipped wherever you are in NZ.

Good bits:

- new oil / leads / filter

- very straight
- no rust / dents /dings
- new tires (inc spare)
- polished rims
- 4 months of WOF/Reg
- half price Reg
- just drove Nelson- Ak without missing a beat.

Improvements you could make:

- interior has a few nicks/imperfections
- roof needs a repaint (but who uses the roof anyway?). Structurally sound.
- soft top has a 1inch tear, probably from being folded wrong. Easy fix
- paint is not 'concors' but polishes well
- stereo could be upgraded
- speedo spins the first number for some reason. It in in the 100s for certain though.

Impressive car, great fun to drive.

Feel free to test drive any time (weekend/after hours/lunch hour) but be warned, once you have driven it, you won't want to give it back!
