About This Car

1986 Mercedes-Benz 500SL (R107)

An excellent opportunity to get behind the wheel of a drivers 500SL.

Presented in the highly desirable combination of Nautic Blue with Grey Leather, this well cared for 500SL also benefits from some carefully selected options.

Being a late model car, cruise control, metallic paint and healamp wash / wipe came as standard, but the air conditioning, outside air temperature gauge, leather seating and rear seating would add £3,556.60 to the on the road price of £41,700. That gives a price with options when adjusted for inflation of £120,196.29 in today’s money!

This is a lovely specification car.

Regular visitors to the SLSHOP showroom will notice the retail price on this car puts it some distance from our usual showroom stars. What we have here isn’t a show queen, this isn’t the embodiment of SL perfection but it is an excellent running and driving SL, a car that can be used and enjoyed whilst following a plan of improvement over time.

At SLSHOP, our reputation is founded on supplying only the finest cars – we turn away more cars than we invite to the showroom, however the colour combination and specification of this car have earned it a slot on the website.

The ideal buyer for this 500SL would be someone looking for a car to get a lot of use out of.

It will be fully prepared for the next owner, ready to make some classic Mercedes-Benz memories.

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.
