When Mercedes launched the R129 at the Geneva Show in March 1989, their intent was clear with electric windows, mirrors, seats and a hydraulic convertible top, all offered as standard equipment. It’s a roomy environment with this particular model also offering the following factory options: 442- Drivers airbag; 580 – Air Conditioning; 592 – All-round Heat Insulating Glass, Heated Rear Window, Band Filter; 873 – Heated driver and passenger seats; 880 – Infrared remote central locking. All in all, the Anthracite (black) leather seats are in super condition, but do indicate now the usual drivers entry scuff marks. In terms of security, the second owner has fitted a very discrete immobiliser system along with a battery master switch, both of which are welcome additions. The original Grundig 5500 RDS Radio/cassette player sits beautifully in place within the immaculate Mahogany style inserts. The interior also offers four very different discrete storage areas. When the top is down, the windows are up and combined with the rear wind deflector, it is joyous, smooth cabriolet driving.
