About This Car

1987 Mercedes-Benz 300SL (R107)

97,407 miles

Anthracite Grey Metallic (172) with Grey MB Tex (178) and
Anthracite Grey Metallic (172) Hard Top with Black Fabric Soft Top (9001)

A fantastically smart looking R107 SL in rare Anthracite Grey, perfectly complimented by the grey interior. This is a desirable and very sharp colour combination, a car that looks a million dollars without turning a wheel.

Sold by SLSHOP in 2018, this car has covered very few miles over the last two years and now returns to our showroom for a new custodian to enjoy. Perfectly presented in grey with grey, this is an excellent opportunity to get behind the wheel of a tried and tested 300SL that’s ready for international touring.

This car has had an odometer change, all of which is documented within the history file. There is a receipt and a note on file from Mercedes-Benz pertaining to the speedo change due to a faulty speedometer head.

Where will your Mercedes-Benz take you?

Bulkhead Corrosion

Although the R107 is renowned for build quality, there is one chink in the armour – the bulkhead. Many cars that present well from the outside are hiding internal rust. Water from outside the car should drain out through specially designed channels, but over time, these become blocked forcing water inside the car. Once water has breached the blower motor cover in front of the windscreen, it slowly wreaks havoc from inside out. This delicate area did not have rust protection from the factory, and as the metal deteriorates it the water ingress can lead to faulty electrics, damp carpets and musty smells inside the cabin.

All our cars come with a 36 month bulkhead warranty.

SLSHOP Unique 2 & 3 year warranty
