1986 Mercedes-Benz R107 300SL with Medium Red (077)

Arctic White (147) with Medium Red (077) / 300SL

Principal Facts:

A striking car in a rare colour combination with verified service history and benefitting from significant recent works.

Condition Synopsis:

A rare car in an unusual colour combination, this Arctic White 300SL looks the part. Although we usually find Arctic White paired with Blue Fabric, we can’t recall seeing another with the smart Mid Red fabric that’s matched to this car. The optional rear seats make it a very usable classic, and the recent works that have been undertaken are impressive. SLSHOP completed a rebuild of the bulkhead in 2023, fixing and repairing rust and giving it our very own seal of approval. With the mileage on the sensible side of 80,000, this is an appealing SL that can be used and enjoyed whilst the major jobs have already been completed. With a black fabric soft top and that red interior, this is quite a special SL and would make an excellent companion for long distance touring - or showing at your local cars and coffee.

History File:

This car has a well documented service history, with the most recent significant works being the bulkhead, which was done at SL SHOP. Amongst the plethora of documents within the file we also find a receipt from Nigel Mansell Sports Cars… This 300SL was sold on 7th August 1992 for the sum of £18,500, with an Opel Manta GTE 2 litre taken in part exchange against it. Funnily enough the typewritten document spells the word Opel wrong, written as Opal. We’d expect better from Nigel Mansell….!

SLSHOP Summary:

This car features optional rear seats in matching mid-red fabric, its hard top, and the seller also has a roof hoist which can be included.

I have followed SLSHOP with interest for some years now and recently took the plunge and purchased my dream car – they did not disappoint!
The whole experience from start to finish was superb. Their communication was excellent and they kept me
informed every step of the way. Thank you and I look forward to my next purchase!

I have just purchased a 280SL from SLSHOP. I have already purchased several parts from SLSHOP and have found all members of staff most helpful and it is more like dealing with a club than a commercial enterprise I would highly recommend using SLSHOP for cars, parts and most importantly impartial advice.

They put up with my indecision, inexperience and last minute demands and my car is the best thing I’ve ever bought. The most impressive thing about them is the after care though. Nothing is ever too much trouble and they’ve given me the best advice to make sure I get the most out of my car. Can you tell I’m obsessed with them all?
