Overview of this Mercedes-Benz

1981 Mercedes-Benz 280SL (R107)

*Potential LEZ ,TAX and MOT free in 2021*

Signal Red (568) with Beige Sports Check Interior (035) and Black Fabric Soft Top (9001)

60,560 miles

This all original early SL looks as good today as it did leaving the factory in 1981. With just 3 previous owners spanning it’s 60,560 mile history, the car is present with all original books and extensive paperwork.

Still with a complete set of matching hub caps, this Signal Red looks every inch the icon of the late 1970s. A fantastic chance to acquire an early car in what is arguably the most desirable 107 SL colour.

Purchased new by Mr R, it remained under his stewardship from 1981 until 2006. There are many, many receipts and documents on file including a 24,000 mile service receipt from 1986. The service record indicates that the car was stored from 1994 to 2001.

Over the last 18 years the car has covered a mere 6,000 miles and been carefully maintained.

Finding an early car in good condition is difficult, but to find one with documents dating back to the 1980s is virtually impossible.
