About This Car
1989 Mercedes-Benz R107 300 SL (R107)
Astral Silver (735) with Beige Sports Check (075) and Black Fabric Soft Top (9001)
This car has been known to The SLSHOP for a number of years, having first been serviced by us since 2012. It is presented in desirable Astral Silver, a luxurious colour that was available to SL buyers from 1972 to 1989.
Being a later car, this SL benefits from factory fitted ABS, better handling and better braking capabilities than pre 1986 cars. Astral Silver is a superb colour for an SL of any age, perfectly complimented by the beige interior.
This four owner car has a well documented service history file. The original books and manuals are present in the plastic wallet, with the service book showing an impressive 25 stamps. Even the brake fluid record is complete, fully stamped and up to date – no small thing for a car that’s more than 30 years old.
Cosmetically and mechanically this car presents exactly as an SLSHOP car should. It is a testament to it’s four owners, all of whom have shown dedication to the upkeep of the car inside and out.
As with all our cars, this example has been given the SLSHOP seal of approval and we can attest that it drives and functions just perfectly. Buyers shouldn’t be put off by the 94,000 miles, rather encouraged. Well cared for six and eight cylinder Mercedes-Benz SLs can reach astronomical mileage figures. Our experience with 300SLs showing this mileage is that the engine purrs freely and they feel eager to please. The Sports Check interior is a superb choice for an SL, not too hot in the summer and not too cold in winter – not only that but Sports Check doesn’t show the miles the way leather wears.
This car is set to provide many years and many more miles of enjoyment for the next owner.
This is a great chance to get behind the wheel of an SL that can be displayed and used without that underlying fear of adding miles to the odometer. A car to be used and enjoyed, to forge your own SL adventure.
