Car History

A late model 380 SL in a colour combination suited to the year build of the earlier model. A History file that displays all MOT certificates from January 1988 to 2015 clarifying the Mileage of just 80K miles. The previous owners have catalogued many bills and receipts over the many years with also Mercedes Benz Club Articles. The service books carries 9 stamps with the last one only just recently. The Bulkhead has been all rectified to the SL Shop Standard alongside a very comprehensive work Schedule. This now demonstrates a very compliant responsive drive following recent work. The binder of history complements Owner’s manual, Audio manual and two spare keys. The dealer factory Brochure from 1971 to 1980 that came with the car from new is also documented in the file. The Early cars now are rare finds in this condition and with a very attractive colour.

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.
