Just arrived and undergoing full showroom preparation. Please contact Joe for further details and photographs.

This beautiful and rare Black 300SL comes from long term ownership, purchased in 1991 when it was just five years old by none other than the then director of Argos. Much as we’d like to make a joke about filling in a small order card with a blue pencil and taking it to a cashier, the car was actually bought at Hughes of Beaconsfield. This Mercedes-Benz dealership then cared for the car for 10 years, between 1991 and 2001.

Present in the history file is documents which detail the transaction between Hughes of Beaconsfield and Mr R of Argos, including a magazine cutting which highlights some of the Hughes of Beaconsfield inventory with this and one other SL circled, presumably by Mr R prior to the purchase. The car was first registered in Mr R’s name, but only from 24th May 1991 until 8th July 1991. The registered keeper was then changed to Mrs R, with whom it would stay for some 20 years.

Prior to arriving at SLSHOP this car has undergone significant preparation, including a refresh of that delicious black paintwork. It now presents as a ready to use, on the button car in a rare and desirable colour combination and with an interesting and comprehensive history.

Another black SL, one of only a handful of 300SLs we have seen in this 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.
