About This Car

1985 Mercedes-Benz 300SL (R107) Almandine Red with Mushroom Leather 

40,000 miles

Almandine Red Metallic (512) Beige Leather (275) and
Almandine Red Metallic (512) Hard Top and Black Fabric Soft Top (9001)

This beautiful R1o7 SL is finished in Almandine red with contrasting Mushroom Leather, a luxurious colour combination and a shade that changes with the sunlight. Inside it benefits from Rear Seats, Heated Seats and a Fire Extinguisher, all of which were expensive optional extras. Heated Seats is very rare to find on a R107 SL of any sort, imagine what a car this must have been back in 1989 – it’s still impressive today.

Catch this car in the orange evening glow of a low sun sky and it appears a rich maroon, whilst brighter lights show it as more cherry, leaning towards candy apple red. At SLSHOP we love this colour, and you will to.

It’s not just the paint code and trim that’s in order with this 300SL, the history file can only be described as enviable. This two owner car has been meticioulslcy cared for since the day it was built. Along with the original book pack, a folder of invoices going back to the 1990s and the fully stamped servie book, there is also a small ‘Black n Red’ notepad detailing 24 years worth of fuel spend. The only downside with this particular SL is that it might take a shade more than the £35.02 spent on 13th May 1996 to brim the tank…

To see photos of the book pack and documentation, please contact Bruce.

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.
