About This Car
1988 Mercedes-Benz R107 300 SL
Signal Red (568O) with Mushroom Leather (275) and Dark Blue Fabric Soft Top (5010)
This 300SL is a top specification, carefully chosen car.
The first owner of this car ticked the boxes for Cruise Control, Air Conditioning and Rear Seats, three hard to find and expensive options that are not often found on six-cylinder cars. The addition of Mushroom Leather would have further added to the list price, making this one of the most expensive 300SLs of 1988.
This Signal Red car also features a Dark Blue Fabric Soft Top, which is an unusual choice. Owners would usually specify a Black soft top with a Signal Red SL, however the Dark Blue is an excellent choice – it gives the car a somewhat royal appearance when the soft top is in place.

Where will your Mercedes-Benz take you?
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.
