About This Car

1982 Mercedes-Benz 380SL (R107)

Light Ivory with Brazil Brown Leather and Brown Fabric Soft Top

22,307 miles

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, 5623 miles and 22268 miles.

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.
