About This Car

1986 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL (R107)

Smoke Silver (702) with Black Leather (271) and Black Fabric Soft Top (9001)

52,000 miles

A wonderful early 1986 C registered 300SL in Smoke Silver, complimented by rear seats all in full black leather. Features heated front seats.

This highly desirable and timeless colour combination looks like it could have been chosen from a 2019 Mercedes-Benz brochure!

The first owner of this car opted for Leather Interior, Heated Front Seats, Rear Seats, Cruise Control, and Headlamp Wash / Wipe, which would have cost an additional £2,469 on top of the £32,750 list price. That gives this car an equivalent ‘new’ price in 2019 money of almost £93,000, making it one of the most expensive 300SLs to purchase ‘new’ of all the 300SLs currently offered in our showroom.

This car has undergone all relevant SL shop testing and inspection, and as with all our sale cars, carries a three year bulkhead warranty and one year mechanical warranty. In the interest of longevity, this car also benefits from a stainless steel exhaust.

A superbly presented and top specification 300SL in a beautiful colour. Not to be missed.

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.
