Accessories and comments
Herrn Schibli, who lives in Lucerne, Switzerland, ordered his new Sport Light from Mercedes-Benz Automobil AG in Schlieren on 06-April 1991. As the present, original sales agreement shows, it was agreed upon purchase that all plastic parts would be painted in body color. Furthermore, the following extras from the option list were checked:
261 Leder Schwarz
425 Getriebe-Automat 5-Gang
565 Sitze im Fond
652 Leichtmetallräder 8-Loch
New price at the time CHF: 127,720. The fact that Herr Schibli has kept and maintained the Roadster perfectly is not only apparent from the car, but certainly also from the available, almost unseen documentation. From the sales agreement, sales invoice and even the receipt of payment, all maintenance invoices, correspondence between Herr Schibli and Mercedes-Benz, the Swiss “Abgaseheft”, the stamped maintenance book and various other documents are available. In 2018, the SL was exported to Germany where she knew two more enthusiasts who further “hegte und pleghte” the car.
