Here Are the Best-Preserved Older Mercedes Models for Sale on Autotrader

If you’re looking for a really nice older Mercedes, look no further. I’ve rounded up five excellent older Mercedes-Benz models, all beautifully preserved with surprisingly low mileage. And while they’re all from various models lines with varying degrees of collectability, each are perfectly preserved in near-showroom condition.

1984 Mercedes-Benz 380 SL

1984 Mercedes-Benz 380 SL – 8,172 Miles

The Mercedes-Benz SL from this era is gaining in value — and this one is particularly desirable, as it’s traveled just 8,172 miles from new. It still looks perfect, and it’s truly amazing how well-kept this example is. It’s offered by The Garage in Miami for $52,900 — big money, but probably a figure that will increase as these SL models become even more desirable to collectors.

1989 Mercedes-Benz 560 SEL

1989 Mercedes-Benz 560 SEL – 25,360 Miles

Although Mercedes-Benz sedan models are rarely as desirable as coupe or convertible versions, this era of the 560 SEL — known as the “W126” — is becoming desirable as one of the last great Mercedes-Benz sedans. This W126 is finished in white with a dark blue interior, and it’s gorgeous — and it’s the most desirable version of the car, with the big 5.6-liter V8. It’s offered with just 25,360 miles by Monaco Auto Collection in Wadsworth, Ohio, for $32,995. Find a Mercedes-Benz 560 SEL for sale

1990 Mercedes-Benz 500 SL

1990 Mercedes-Benz 500 SL – 26,633 Miles

The 1990s Mercedes-Benz 500 SL hasn’t gotten to the point where it’s appreciated by car collectors — at least not yet. But it’s likely headed there, and examples like this will be among the most desirable. This 1990 500SL is especially gorgeous, finished in bright red with a beige interior and just 26,600 miles on the odometer. It’s offered by BMW of Middleburg Heights in Ohio for $17,994. Find a Mercedes-Benz 500 SL for sale

1995 Mercedes-Benz E 320 Cabriolet

1995 Mercedes-Benz E 320 Cabriolet – 27,087 Miles

The “W124”-chassis Mercedes-Benz E-Class Cabriolet is starting to gain in desirability and value, and low-mileage examples like this one are becoming especially sought after. This W124 E320 Cabriolet is finished in gold with chrome wheels and a shockingly low odometer reading of just over 27,000 miles — and it’s offered by a private seller in Laguna Niguel, California, for $18,500. Find a Mercedes-Benz E 320 for sale

1998 Mercedes-Benz SLK 230

1998 Mercedes-Benz SLK 230 – 18,337 Miles

The Mercedes-Benz SLK isn’t yet considered a “collectible” Mercedes, and there’s some chance it never will be — but if it is, this is probably the one you’ll want. This 1998 SLK230 has traveled just 18,337 miles from new, and it’s finished in black with a black interior, both of which are beautifully preserved. This SLK is offered by Godspeed Motors in Charlotte for $9,595, which seems to be a bargain for such a nice SLK. Find a Mercedes-Benz SLK 230 for sale
