About This Car
1986 Mercedes-Benz R107 420 SL
Thistle Green (881) with Mushroom Sports Check (075) and Dark Brown Fabric Soft Top (8023)
A fantastic opportunity to acquire an exceptionally low mileage 420 SL.
Thistle Green appeared in 1980, available to SL owners until 1986. The colour of this early 1986 car is greatly complimented by the Dark Brown Fabric Soft Top as seen in the photos… The first owner clearly had an eye for the smaller details and opted for brown instead of black for the soft top. Further increasing the appeal of the car is the addition of rear seating, an expensive option in 1986 and highly desirable today.
Showing just 30,000 miles on the odometer, this car shows more than 9 stamps in the service book and has been known to us for some time.
In the past we have supplied this car to the two careful owners, and can now offer it to the open market for a new owner to enjoy.

Where will your Mercedes-Benz take you?
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.
