1985 Mercedes-Benz 500SL (R107)

Astral Silver Metallic (735) with Grey Fabric (078) and
Nautical Blue Metallic Hardtop (929) and Black Fabric Soft Top (9001)

85,000 miles

This beautiful ‘late early’ R107 SL was built just before the 1986 facelift, giving it the benefit of the character of the early car with all of the finesse that a decade of development afforded. These early cars have a distinctly different feel to the later R107 SLs, being somehow rawer, more visceral and a little less refined… Obviously ‘less refined’ is a relative term, this is after all a highly luxurious and comfortable car for it’s day.

Finished in Astral Silver over Anthracite Grey with Mexican Hat alloy wheels, this really is a superb looking car. It offers the true SL experience, whilst being a little unusual in it’s styling.

Arriving at SLSHOP in 2021, we had been aware of this car for some time before it landed as a staff car, squirrelled away by the sales department to be used for various events during the summer. Amongst the achievements that this car boasts from this year alone are two trips to London, a place on the Brooklands event and a full day of driving through Wales on location scouting duty for our forthcoming driving tour. We can attest that it performs exactly as a high grade SL should, and the rear seats make it a very usable classic car. Just lovely, and one to be driven.

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.
