A LITTLE BACKGROUND:
Delivered new by Keeler Motorcars in Latham, New York on September of 1999, this SLK was cherished by its first and only owner. It was kept in a climate controlled facility for twenty years and used only on very special occasions until her passing in 2018.
The clean Carfax shows scheduled maintenance trips performed exclusively by Mercedes-Benz, regardless of miles driven between services. Money was not an issue to keep this beautiful 1st. generation SLK looking and driving like a brand new Mercedes-Benz.
This vehicle remains in concours condition and it presents as a *new* car would. The 040 Black paint is in amazing shape, just as it did 20 years ago. No dents or scratches are visible, anywhere on this vehicle.
The interior is immaculate with no fading or peeling on center console or dash. Seats show no wear at all. Factory SLK floor mats look new.
Engine bay is thoroughly manicured, grime and dust are non-existent.
Undercarriage looks as it did in 1999 and it retains all factory tags, stickers and torque markings. Its condition is consistent with a car that has never been rained on.
Fresh fluids, filters and new battery recently performed. Regular maintenance by Mercedes-Benz thru ought this SLK's life is evident; everything works as it should.
Smooth top operation (see videos), very cold AC and windows work as they should. The same applies to the electric mirrors and radio.
Plenty of power from the supercharged 4-cylinder engine and precise, crisp shifting of the 5-speed automatic as shown in the videos.
Zero vibrations or rattles. This 1K mile SLK drives like a new Mercedes-Benz.
