This Signal Red Mercedes-Benz 300SL came to us with a simple brief… make it better than new.
Ordered by a customer with very high expectations, after an initial conversation the actual brief was established, with the end result intended to be nothing other than the very best R107 SL that could possibly be produced. It was a high bar to reach, but reach it we did, with outstanding results.
Over the following months this car was carefully deconstructed and the body sent away for blasting. Once returned, a lifetime of small imperfections were repaired ready for a fresh coat of that iconic Signal Red. Inside the process was the same, remove everything, restore what can be restored and replace what needs to be replaced. Arguably the biggest task was underneath the car. With a completely fresh shell to work with, the underside needed to be immaculate. Removing the original factory underseal revealed all manner of tasks for our fabrication department to carefully work through.
The finished item was quite simply R107 perfection – inside, outside and underneath. A fully restored car, in immaculate and better than new condition.
