About This Car

1986 Mercedes-Benz 300SL (R107)

Diamond Blue Metallic (355) with Blue Sports Check Interior (072) and Dark Blue Fabric Soft Top (501)

53,000 miles

Back in 1986 this superb looking Diamond Blue 300SL would have cost a little over £30,000 – or marginally less than the £34,931 average house price of the same year.

This 2 owner 1986 Mercedes-Benz 300SL was registered in 1987, with a Pre Delivery Inspection stamp showing 20th May of that year.

In that first year of it’s life it covered 10,000 miles, before settling into a three decade pattern of adding around 2-3000 miles per year to the odometer. In the last 5 years it has covered less than 5,000 miles.

Also accompanying this car are three folders of paperwork, two of which comprise the service history and maintenance and one contains the MOT certificates. The original PDI sheet and data card are also present, along with the plastic document wallet and all of the original manufacturer books.

The documentation paints a picture of a superbly cared for car, but more than that, it shows a car that has been in use consistently from the day it was built until very recently. What we have here is a well loved, well cared for classic that has enjoyed a cherished but appreciated life, a car that has been loved and adored but also used and enjoyed. To drive this car one wouldn’t know that the mileage was 50,000, it certainly feels a lot less – testament to a lifetime of careful maintenance and proper storage.

Diamond Blue will always be a desirable colour for the R107 SL, and this example has to be one of the finest we have seen at this price point.

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.
