About This Car
1986 Mercedes-Benz 300SL (R107)
Arctic White (147) with Blue Sports Check (072) and Dark Blue Fabric Soft Top (5010)
This vehicle has been known to The SLSHOP for many years, having been with the last owner since 1999. Finding high calibre cars in white paintwork is always difficult – they show blemishes and road scars all too easily. Being free of these, this example represents a superb chance to own your own slice of 1980s prestige. The combination of white and blue gives this SL a somewhat Naval look, giving it a commanding presence no matter where you choose to take it.
This 300SL benefits from Cruise Control and Rear Seats, two factory options that were not standard for the 300SL at the time. Both of these options would have added a significant sum to the original list price back in 1986.
This car is in wonderful condition and is ready to be enjoyed.
Note: The SLSHOP own a 300SL in this exact combination, a car that is used for hire and magazine purposes. Our own Arctic White car has covered well over 100,000 miles and shows no wear or tear on the Blue Sports Check, meaning we are certain that this 44,000 mile example has many years of pleasurable motoring to offer the new owner.

Where will your Mercedes-Benz take you?
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.
