Car Details:


230SL Pagoda | Midnight Blue | Cream Leather | Show winner.

This outstanding car comes with a thick history file detailing the extensive work undertaken since 2007. In that time it has had a full engine, interior and bodywork overhaul evidenced by bills totalling over £18,000, resulting in the show winning example you see here. In 2011 the car was awarded first prize for Best SL at the Newby Hall Concours, and the winner's trophy is included in the sale.

Naturally we are selling the car fully serviced, with a new MoT and 12 months warranty.

We turn down many, many vehicles to arrive at the selection you find here.

Each SL that we do offer for sale undergoes a thorough inspection by our team of experienced Mercedes-Benz technicians to ensure that it matches the quality that our customers have come to expect. and every car has the following:

Mercedes-Benz SL and SLC R107 Bulk Head Plenum Chamber Corrosion...

One of the biggest issues associated with SL 107’s is the well documented Bulk Head or Plenum Chamber corrosion issue. This can effect almost all cars as even the youngest cars are now towards 25 years since they left the factory. We have an unparalleled understanding of this issue and correct many, many cars in our restoration facility as customers own cars are brought to us suffering from this issue. We have created this short video to demonstrate what happens to these cars and what we do about it.:
