Exceptional 1997 SL600, highly optioned and upgraded. The most highly sought after year for the R129 SL600 is 1997 for several reasons of which I will only highlight a couple, the 5 speed transmission was a great improvement, it also was the last year of the R129 models to be Daimler exclusive as Mercedes bought Chrysler and all further Mercedes were then designated as Daimler/Chrysler until 2008/9. Pioneer DVD/CD Blu tooth stereo, focal and JL speakers and alpine high end amp. Chrystal turn signals, Xenon Head lamps New Burl/Leather Brabus steering wheel, custom front grill and many more upgrades to numerous to list. Car will also come with OEM stereo, side lights and grill.

The soft top is in good condition, however the windows have yellowed and I will replace prior to going to new home. I am not replacing them until new buyer notifies me if they want the tinted grey or clear windows as this is a personnel preference or will credit new owner for windows if they prefer.
This car has been maintained exceptionally and all items have been addressed immediately and no expense has been spared. All work has been performed by Walters Mercedes Benz Dealer in Riverside, CA, no work has been performed by third party mechanics. All records since I have owned the vehicle are available for the new owner.
The car is driven occasionally, mileage may differ slightly.
