About This Car
1987 Mercedes-Benz 500SL (R107)
Astral Silver (735) with Royal Blue Leather (272) and Dark Blue Fabric Soft Top (5010)
A beautifully presented SL in desirable Astral Silver with Blue Leather interior. Combining silver coachwork with dark blue interior and fabric roof gives the SL a royal or naval appearance, a smart and imposing colour scheme.
Finding these V8 engined cars with less than 50,000 miles showing is becoming an incredible feat. To find a silver one, UK registered and Right Hand Drive really is something impressive. These cars were capable tourers, with a fantastic ability to eat miles. We have seen a great many of these with astronomical miles on the odometer, and rightly so… But for the astute buyer, the investor and the serious Mercedes-Benz enthusiast, it must be a V8 and the mileage must be respectable. The combination of colour, provenance, condition and mileage make this 500SL an excellent choice.
Having had just three owners in it’s 32 years, this low mileage car presents a great chance to own a fine looking motorcar.
This SL was purchased new by a Mr R on 1st August 1987. He adored this car for 23 years, passing it to a Mr D on 14th October 2010. Two years later in May of 2012 it was acquired by the 3rd owner, a Mr H, who purchased it from The SLSHOP.
Cared for by The SLSHOP for the last 9 years, this SL is well known to us and is a car we are very familiar with.
It comes with an impressive history file, including a well organised folder of receipts and invoices as well as almost every tax disc ever issued for the car.
