About This Car
1987 Mercedes-Benz 300SL (R107)
Astral Silver (735) with Black MB Tex (171) and Black Fabric Soft Top (9001)
Proudly sitting in a very Germanic combination of Astral Silver and Black Interior, this low mileage 300SL looks completely timeless with the roof up or down.
Cruise Control was never offered as standard on the 300SL, it was a £300 optional extra (or £787 in today’s money). This car has Cruise Control, along with Rear Seats, adding a combined £1,800 in options in today’s money.
It is complete with a very comprehensive service history file which follows the journey of the cars life, from the delivery inspection until recently. We have carried out a very comprehensive series of works in line with SLSHOP standards, all of which is documented in the file that accompanies this car.
This fantastic 300SL is ready to be enjoyed by the next owner.

Where will your Mercedes-Benz take you?
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.
