1987 Mercedes Benz R107 420SL with Anthracite Leather (271)

Signal Red (568) with Anthracite Leather (271) / 420SL

Principal Facts:

A beautiful 420SL in the iconic shade of Signal Red, purchased from SLSHOP by it’s current keeper in 2017 and now returning just over 2,000 miles later to find a new custodian of this superb car.

The Mercedes-Benz 420SL was part of the model range for only the last three years of production, from 1986 to 1989. Sitting between the three-litre straight-six and five-litre V8, the silky smooth 4.2 provides a different experience for drivers.

History File:

This car has been known to SLSHOP since 2017, having spent most of its life on Jersey. In our time working with classic Mercedes-Benz we have seen a number of high calibre cars with that distinctive Jacksons of Jersey stamp on the Pre Delivery Inspection page of the service book, and once again this is a premium example that began life on the island. The first 6 stamps in the book are all from Jersey, up until 1998. The record continues in 2007, with the car covering just 3,000 miles that decade before arriving at SLSHOP in the summer of 2017. Undergoing significant improvement works with us that year, the car has been in private ownership ever since and only used sparingly. Since it first adorned our showroom, the odometer has only gained 2,500 miles. Used and enjoyed sparingly by the current keeper, it is now time for this fine car to be enjoyed by a new custodian.

I have followed SLSHOP with interest for some years now and recently took the plunge and purchased my dream car – they did not disappoint!
The whole experience from start to finish was superb. Their communication was excellent and they kept me
informed every step of the way. Thank you and I look forward to my next purchase!

I have just purchased a 280SL from SLSHOP. I have already purchased several parts from SLSHOP and have found all members of staff most helpful and it is more like dealing with a club than a commercial enterprise I would highly recommend using SLSHOP for cars, parts and most importantly impartial advice.

They put up with my indecision, inexperience and last minute demands and my car is the best thing I’ve ever bought. The most impressive thing about them is the after care though. Nothing is ever too much trouble and they’ve given me the best advice to make sure I get the most out of my car. Can you tell I’m obsessed with them all?
