About This Car

A classic Mercedes-Benz SL (190SL, Pagoda or R107) – Restored To Your Specification

Have you always dreamt of owning the perfect classic Mercedes-Benz SL?

One of the finest in the country, a car that doesn’t just look superb, but drives, handles and feels superb? A car that’s built to your own desires, put together by expert enthusiasts and painstakingly crafted to be your pride and joy?

Let SLSHOP turn your dream into a reality, let us build you a Pagoda, 190SL or R107 the calibre of which led Mercedes Enthusiast Editor David Sutherland to state ‘I’ve just driven possibly the best Pagoda I’ve ever come across‘.

Join us for an automotive adventure, a collaborative project between you, your dreams, your aspirations and our expert restoration technicians. Sit with us to discuss the options, the colour, the trim, the finish, the fine details on everything that’s required to build the Pagoda you’ve always promised yourself.

Together we’ll embark on this restoration journey, starting with a bare shell and gunning for nothing but perfection. We intend this car to be a complete, concours quality SL that can be driven with confidence. When it comes to your involvement, it’s not just the colour of the paint –  there is a raft of options for exterior and interior finish – this is a chance to express your creativity and share with us the SL you see in your minds eye.

SLSHOP have been restoring classic Mercedes-Benz SLs for over a decade, producing some of the finest cars in the world. From the delicate curves of a 190SL to the distinct lines of a Pagoda, to the arrow straight style of the later R107, our restorations are nothing but perfection.

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

At the SLSHOP, not only do we know what an SL is capable of but we believe in the cars we sell.

We want our customers to have the confidence to get out and use these iconic classics, to enjoy them for trips at home and abroad.

That’s why we offer a 2 year ‘no quibble’ mechanical warranty with each car sold, as well as a 3 year bulkhead warranty.
