Quick Overview

1986 Mercedes-Benz R107 300 SL – Astral Silver with Cream Sports Check

Specification Includes:

Astral Silver with Cream Sports Check

About This Car:

This late model 300SL is from the last 3 years of SL production, which many consider to be the finest examples.

Cars built from 1986 to 1989 featured upgraded brakes with 4 pot callipers and larger discs, a galvanised chasis and improved suspension. These late model cars have improved handling over earlier variants, and feature faster changing automatic transmissions.

This 300SL was registered new on April 16th 1986, and stayed with the first owner for 8 years until 1994. After purchasing the car in 1994, the second owner cared for the car for 12 years until 2012. It moved to a third owner in 2012, who kept the car four years until 2016. We are now offering this car for sale on behalf of the current owner who has taken care of it since June 2016.

The service book shows an impressive 21 service stamps, including two from The SL Shop. We have known this car for a number of years - it had it’s first service with us in 2012.

WHY SLSHOP

See our web site for full details. As with all of our cars this example will be sold with a full service using correct filters and fluids, a comprehensive pre delivery inspection which includes multiple checks and extensive tests… anything that is found to be requiring attention is attended to or flagged for attention which is why our cars take time to come to market. The cars are then independently MoT inspected and come with a 24 month SL Shop warranty. Crucially ALL of our cars now come with a BULK HEAD warranty. As you may have learned this is the Achilles heel for SL’s and buying a car from The SL Shop means you will not have this issue which effects every car to some degree and can, in some cases be a very expensive repair see http://www.theslshop.com/bulkhead-repairs.

Why buy a classic Mercedes-Benz from The SL Shop

We take great pride in finding new owners for high quality, investable classic cars.

As Europe’s leading SL specialist, a wealth of experience in servicing and restoring classic Mercedes-Benz vehicles, so we only sell cars that we deem worthy to wear The SL Shop name.

When you buy a car from The SL Shop, you can be sure that you are buying one of the very best examples available.

We turn down many, many vehicles to arrive at the selection you find in our showroom.

1. This is an old car, will it be mechanically reliable?

We want you to enjoy your classic car from the minute you first turn the key and our reputation is paramount.

All of our showroom cars undergo a comprehensive pre-delivery inspection which includes multiple checks and extensive tests. During this process, anything that doesn’t meet our high standards will be attended to, which is why it can take some time for one of our cars to come to market.

2. How can I be sure this car is as good as it looks?

For added peace of mind, every sales car is subject to a road test to ensure that it behaves exactly as the factory intended. We test the car under load, idling in traffic, cruising on the motorway and ambling along country lanes in Worcestershire. We check the engine and drivetrain as well as all the controls, from the heaters to the adjustment of the seats.

3. Will my car be serviced before I collect it?

As with all our cars, this example will be sold with a full service using manufacturer correct filters and fluids. The car is then independently inspected and given a full 12 month MoT certificate.

4. Will my classic car come with a warranty?

Your classic Mercedes-Benz from The SL Shop will come with a full 24 month warranty, including the vital bulkhead, which has a 36 month warranty.

5. Why is the 36 month bulkhead warranty from The SL Shop so important?

The bulkhead was the achilles heel of the R 107SL, a weakness which can affect even then youngest of cars. A corroded bulkhead can be hard to identify - a car may look the part but be suffering badly under the skin.

Our work with the R 107 bulkhead has been documented extensively online, so we have an unparalleled understanding of this issue and highly recommend watching the video below to learn more about the subject.

We invested a significant amount of time and money into the research and development of our own bespoke panels to create a long term solution to the bulkhead problem. You can’t buy a complete bulkhead panel for an R107 anywhere other than The SL Shop, making us industry leaders in this particular area.

Our work with the bulkhead is more than just a repair, it’s a long term solution.

Our experience with the R 107 SL means you can rest assured that you are in safe hands with The SL Shop.

I’ve been looking at some of the cars on your website, but can’t find one that’s perfect for me, can you help?

In a word, yes. If you’re looking for a specific car, or a specific colour combination, do let us know. We come across cars regularly, and not all of them make it to our website
