About This Car
1982 Mercedes-Benz 380SL (R107)
Light Ivory with Brazil Brown MB Tex and Brown Fabric Soft Top
Finding a high quality ‘early’ R107 (pre-1986) can be very difficult indeed. Finding one with low miles in a rare colour combination is another task entirely. This Light Ivory 380SL sports the Brazil Brown interior, a fantastic combination of colours and textures that makes it a very unusual car to behold. The colour combination can impact the way a car looks and feels. The metallic paints of the 1980s combined with the Beige interiors make the late cars look newer than they are, but the colour scheme of this 380SL dates it back to the Pagoda era… With interest in cars of the 1960s at an all time high, there has never been a better time for a ‘coffee and cream’ R107 SL.
These early R107 cars are growing in popularity as the unstoppable rise of the Pagoda continues on to even more dizzying heights. As people see the 1960s cars heading off into the distance of financial obtainability, eyes turn to the most classic looking for the model that followed. With the painted hub caps and elegant stance provided by the narrower front wheels, these pre-86 cars are appealing to an all-new generation of R107 buyer.
Where traditionally the post-86 cars have been most in demand, we are now seeing the beginnings of a rising wave of retro leaning. The older an R107 looks, the more a certain enclave of the R107 community seem to appreciate it. We find it’s wonderful to see new buyers entering the market, and look forward to demonstrating this rather rare SL to a prospective owner.
Showing just 22,000 miles, this car is an exceptional find. The original manufacturer book pack is present along with the original punch hole build card.
The service book shows stamps at 989 miles, 5,623 miles and 22,268 miles.
