A good Benz convertible at this price is always a great find. After all, this triple-black 1993 Mercedes-Benz 500SL is sleek, loaded, and comes with the right extras - including both tops. It all makes for a V8 grand touring machine that will always make people assume you paid much more than this value price asks.

The R129 era of the Mercedes SL is arguably its best. It takes its predecessor's lessons of building a hardy luxury convertible, and then it adds in a unique and sleek style all its own. But because it keeps the bright/wide grille and big tri-star up front, it's also an unmistakable part of over a century's worth of lineage. A sleek black is an outstanding color combo when you want to look timelessly upper-class. The odometer is believed to reflect the full actual mileage, but this also has been given good investments, like a respray later in life. So the car continues to have the look of well-respected quality. Plus, flared fenders, polished 16-inch alloys, and panels that retain a precision fit are all part of a package that gives this both sporty style and prestige. And speaking of prestige, the optional color-matched hardtop gives this the distinctive look of a sports coupe. Even the power-folding soft top has a nice look as the black canvas looks good against the black paint.

If you like the way either black roof looks, then you'll certainly love this with no roof at all. In fact, the trio of the black paint, roof, and interior delivers the ultra-desirable triple-black. The condition of the supple leather seats reminds you of the enduring quality of a proper Mercedes-Benz. Plus, nice wood on the center console and doors all make sure this lives up to your expectation for a coddling Mercedes. This also has all the best features, including power seats with driver's memory, power windows, power locks, keyless entry/alarm, tilt/telescope steering column, rear defroster, cruise control, and the fully automatic A/C climate control system. They even upgraded the factory stereo to an AM/FM/CD unit with a USB and Bluetooth for the best in modern driving music. This one straddles the line between a true classic age and a more modern machine, and so you also get the best safety features. It includes dual front airbags, anti-lock brakes, and a roll bar that automatically deploys when it senses danger.

We also love these Mercedes for what's under the hood. The 5.0-liter V8 is a fuel-injected 32-valve DOHC unit, and so its 315 horsepower has a versatile delivery that's both quick off the line and has big legs at highway speeds. This all-around powerful player is mated to a four-speed automatic transmission. This has been geared for both smooth kick-downs into performance as well as easy overdrive long-distance comfort. The fully-independent suspension, power steering, and four-wheel disc brakes are all engineered to accompany this versatile feeling. So you're at home on both twisty back roads and highways you want to treat as autobahns.

The sale comes complete with the owner's manual packet and maintenance records. There's a lot to love about this loaded V8 Mercedes SL... and what you'll love the most is the affordable price. So don't miss your chance, call today!
