Overview of this Mercedes-Benz

1986 Mercedes-Benz 500SL (R107)

Anthracite Grey Metallic (172) with Beige Leather (275) with
Anthracite Grey Metallic Hardtop (172) and Black Fabric Soft Top (9001)

27,000 miles

On the 1st of February 1989 and Mrs E Finn drove her 1987 Austin Montego Vanden Plas to Mercedes-Benz Bramley. The Vanden Plas might have been the Crème de la crème of British saloon cars of the late 1980s, but with a part exchange allowance of £6,250, there was still quite a gap between the value of her four-door Montego and the £39,619 sticker price of her chosen Mercedes-Benz.

After the bankers draft had cleared, Mr and Mrs Finn left the dealership in their two-year old 500SL, the second owners of the car. The odometer reading on the day was just 8,500 miles.

Seven years and 10,000 miles later Mrs and Mrs Finn were still the custodians of this fine 500SL, although the paperwork demonstrates that a move from Surrey to Scotland has taken place. With the mileage showing 19,013 on the odometer, this 500SL attends Murray Motor Company in Glasgow in December 1996 where it undergoes a full service.

100 miles and 2 years later, the SL once again returns to for it’s annual service in February of 1998

In December 2006 with the odometer showing 20,164 miles the car attends Parks of Hamilton for an annual service, then again in December 2007 barely 300 miles later, at 20,478 miles.

Another three years and 300 miles pass before the next service, once again at Parks of Hamilton, now known as Bentley Glasgow. The odometer shows just 20,714 miles.

The final document from Bentley Glasgow details the fitment of two new fuel pumps in 2011, with the mileage stated as 20,746.

Between 1989 and 2016 Mr and Mrs Finn cherish and adore this car, using it sparingly and always ensuring it was maintained to a high standard.

In 2016 the car was sold to the current keeper, at which point it first appears on the SLSHOP radar. Since 2016 this car has undergone a complete transformation, with the owner choosing SLSHOP to embark upon a comprehensive restoration to turn this into one of the finest R107 SLs in the country. All of the work is documented on the file that is present with the car, with a summary sheet showing a total spend of £60,000.

Since the work was completed the car has been used and enjoyed, proudly displayed alongside a collection of Mercedes-Benz cars including one of the finest 560SECs in existence.

A simply wonderful 500SL with an excellent story, an ex SLSHOP restoration car, cherished and adored since new.
