Overview of this Mercedes-Benz

1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SL (R107)

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

21,465 miles

This superb USA specification 560SL first resided in Arkansas, USA until it was imported to the UK in 2018. For the first three decades of it’s life it was cared for by just one owner, covering a mere 20,000 miles between 1987 and 2016. Interestingly an original Arkansas registration document states that the license plate for the car was ‘SOHAPPY’, a lovely anecdote in the history file of what is a very fine car indeed.

Finished in the iconic shade of Signal Red over Beige Leather, this 5.6 litre SL is every inch the Hollywood icon. USA specification cars were generally very high specification, and this car is no exception. Insider the is the optional Outside Temperature Gauge, Rear Spoiler Delete, Steering Wheel Airbag, Heated Mirrors on both sides, Automatic Antenna, Folding Arm Rest, Illuminated Vanity Mirrors, Air Conditioning, Paintwork Preservation and the Becker Mexico Radio… A huge specification that would have equated to ticking almost every option box on a European order form at the time.

These Left Hand Drive 560SLs have a foot brake instead of a parking break, which means the centre armrest came as standard on export cars. This is a nice addition to an R107 SL, making a big difference to occupant comfort when touring long distance.

This car must have looked a million dollars cruising the streets of Little Rock wearing it’s SOHAPPY license plate.

Since arriving in the UK it has seen very little use, and is a car we are proud to offer from our showroom. The largest displacement R107 SL in the finest colour combination, boasting incredibly low mileage and a verified history. A lovely cruiser for cross continent blasts, or simply popping to the shop… wherever you take it this car is sure to be a show stopper.
