About This Car

1987 Mercedes-Benz 500SL

Signal Red (568) with Beige Leather (275) and
Signal Red Hardtop (568) and Black Fabric Soft Top (740)

74,830 miles

This beautiful 500SL is not only finished in what is arguably the most desirable colour;, but it is equipped with almost every option that was available to order back in 1987.

The list price of £41,700 was already impressive, considering the average house price in 1987 was just a shade over £25,000, but the Air Conditioning, Air Bag, Leather Seating, Rear Seats, Outside Temperature Gauge, Orthopaedic Back Rests, Seat Heaters, Sump Shield added more than £5,000 to the list price, giving this car a total ‘equivalent’ price of more than £118,000. We think this is the most expensive R107 SL to grace our showroom so far.

With a service history to verify it’s mileage figure, this impressive car has clearly had a cared for life. Comes with the correct factory book pack and an impressive array of paperwork. Finding V8 powered R107 SLs is getting harder and harder, particularly in the ultimate colour of Signal Red. This is an excellent opportunity to buy and drive the icon.

Where will your Mercedes-Benz take you?

Bulkhead Corrosion

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.
