R129SHOP.COM: Thé specialist for your R129
Our love for Mercedes Benz started more than a decade ago. The beautiful lines, the chrome and especially the technique in which Mercedes Benz was progressive for years drew our attention. After a decade of experience in selling and repairing Mercedes Oldtimers, with our company Mercedes Oldtimers Bladel it was the R129 that arroused interest.
Obviously the R129 is a beautiful and timeless car, but also the technique of the R129 is on point.The last couple of years the question for the Mercedes SL R129 has risen enormously and therefor the demand for R129 parts as well.
Tell me what is more comfortable than driving your convirtible with nice weather! Well driving a convirtible of an increadible reliable brand like the Mercedes SL R129. The prodessesor of the R129 was the W107, this was a nice model but very basic. The R129 was introduced in 1989 at the fair of Geneve.
The R129 was a real tour de force for its time and ahaed of its time as well. All electrical gadgets were an enormous luxury, the demand for the R129 was so high, that even Mercedes could not keep up with production and the waiting lists were up to a year! The lucky few who got the car within reasonable time, could sell the SL directly with a profit of 5000 Deutsche Mark!
