Good evening I'm looking at a early 90's SL500

Asked by Apr 05, 2010 at 09:09 PM about the 1992 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class 500SL

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

What should I be focusing on or looking at? Any weaknesses? Where should the rust be, if any? Is the A/C reliable in them, transmission, engine? Any known problems eith them?

Thank you so much,

if there is any rust this usually start in the trunk area battery tray from the acid residue if the battery breather hose was not properly attach, antena seal if missing will ruin the rear cd player and result in water getting in the trunk.
