Overview of this Mercedes-Benz
1987 Mercedes-Benz 300SL (R107)
Midnight Blue (902) with Blue Leather (252) and Blue Fabric Soft Top (5010)
This car boasts very low mileage of just 42,941.
An SL in a dark blue or black colour with luxurious leather interior will always be in demand, but the additional options enjoyed by this car make it truly a special find.
Leather, Orthopaedic Front Seats and Air Conditioning were expensive optional extras in 1987. This car would have left the factory at almost £45,000, or around £117,000 in today’s money.
Also present in the original book pack is the 1987 Mercedes-Benz Price List, showing the factory fitted options for the 300SL. There are pencil marks against the Airbag, Air Conditioning, Heated Front Seats, Leather Seating, Radio Equipment, Leather Seats, Rear Seats, Theft Warning Device and Twin Illuminated Vanity Mirrors…
Although pencil marks in a price list weren’t converted into ink on an order form, as heated seats, air bag and rear seating never made it onto the car. We can only wonder the reasons why!
Coming from long term ownership, this car has been with the current vendor since 2013.
Significant work took place in 2011, detailed in a plastic folder with paperwork dating back to the 1990s. The work was completed to a high standard, with the car presenting superbly. Inside the interior is all new, retrimmed to exacting standards to give the car an ‘as new’ feel.
This lovely SL is accompanied by the original Mercedes-Benz plastic book pack, containing the original sales guides, manuals and service book.
The service book shows a Pre Delivery Inspection stamp on the 13th April 1987, with services at 797 miles, 5,391 miles, 12,995 miles, , 18,022 miles, 23,878 miles, 29,968 miles, 36,760 miles, 40,03 miles, 42,398 miles and 42,696 miles.
A car that has been known to SLSHOP for some time, that starts and drives just as it did back in 1987, with the added bonus of recent work and all new interior trim.
A fine looking car that’s ready to be enjoyed.
