1988 Mercedes-Benz R107 300 SL with Grey Leather 278

Signal Red with Grey Leather 278 / 300 SL

Reserved

Principal Facts:

1988 Mercedes-Benz R107 300 SL

Signal Red (568) with Grey Leather (278) and Black Fabric Soft Top (9001)

Just 35,649 miles

This remarkable 300SL has been with the same family since it was just 6 months old.

The original purchaser carefully picked Signal Red with Grey Leather and Rear Seats, but then cancelled the order for reasons unknown. Enter the car’s first ‘proper’ owner, who had visited his local showroom intent on purchasing a Jaguar. After falling in love with the bright red SL, the deal was done and the car returned home with it’s new custodian – a family who would cherish this car from that moment on.

This car has been with the same family from just six months old until now.

Having always been used sparingly and kept in dry storage, it has seen very little use in recent years, and shows just a touch over 35,500 miles on the odometer.

Leather and Rear Seating were expensive options, and are desirable features of an any SL.

We have recommissioned this car and can confirm that it drives exactly as a 35,500 mile SL should.

Recent work includes new bushes, fluids, tyres and refurbished alloy wheels.

A superb opportunity to acquire a highly original late model 300SL.

INDUSTRY TRUSTED

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.

[RA]

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?
