Dark Blue Fabric Soft Top (5010) with Arctic White (147) Hard Top
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, plus it’s a very hard colour to match should paintwork be needed. A poor quality white car can be spotted from a distance.
This car is beautifully presented, with the white paintwork being complimented by the attractive ‘sports check’ fabric interior. These fabric interiors are hard wearing and comfortable in hot or cold climates, making them ideal for touring with SLs.
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.
There are invoices on file detailing almost £7,000 spent in recent years with SLSHOP, including the all important rectification of the bulkhead. Also present within the documentation is a letter on file from a previous owner detailing some notes on the car from his time of ownership.
This car is in wonderful condition and is ready to be enjoyed.
