About This Car

1981 Mercedes-Benz 280SL (R107)

63,747 miles

Inca Red (581) with Beige MB Tex (135) and Dark Brown Fabric Soft Top (8023)

A fantastic looking early car with punchy 2.8 litre straight six engine and beautiful coachwork. Early cars are getting hard to find in this condition. In recent years we have seen a resurgence of interest in early style cars with ‘period’ colour schemes, oranges, yellows, browns and greens all seem to be in much higher demand than we’ve previously experienced. This car boasts a rare and fantastic colour combination, with just 63,747 miles from new.

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.
