Car History

This 420 SL has been with the same owner since 1996. The car has been part of static collection where little use has taken place, local servicing of fluid changes throughout its life. The colour of Willow green is very period of its years which complements a beautiful mushroom leather interior. The mileage of just 26000 miles is demonstrated in with original paintwork from new. we have carried out a full re commission of all fluids, new soft top, wheels and tyres, all bushes, a overhaul of the injection system, thousands have been invested in all the right places to bring this 420 SL in the condition you see today. A great car for a collection of low mileage and a beautiful to drive and enjoy. The service book has early stamps, the brown leather wallet and manuals are all present followed with roof handle keys to match.

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.
