About This Car

Ex-SLSHOP 1988 Mercedes-Benz R107 300 SL

76,538 Miles

Diamond Blue (355) and Royal Blue Leather (272)

Dark Blue Mohair Soft Top

Delivered new to Mercedes-Benz Bedford in January 1988, this well cared for and consistently cherished 300SL is now available for the next chapter in its motoring journey. Finished in elegant Diamond Blue (355) and paired with Royal Blue Leather (272), this blue-on-blue configuration blends neatly with the winter and summer months of the year. The desirable six-cylinder M103 pairs ample dependable power with economy, making the 300 SL suitable for both shorter and longer journeys.

Produced in the second to last year of production, the 300 SL offered an extensive array of standard features including electric windows, heated door mirrors and much more. Taking the car one rung further, the original owner elected for leather front and rear seats – an expensive option when new, adding air conditioning later. The addition of air conditioning makes this 300 SL particularly unique, as you would more often find this feature with the V8 models. Additional accessories for the vehicle include a retrofitted Clifford central locking device, an aftermarket Pioneer head unit, as well as a black wind-deflector and a grey hard-top cover.

Accompanying the vehicle is a comprehensive file detailing all servicing, MOT and reactive maintenance work carried out annually; with each invoice and corresponding service stamp documented in chronological order. The vehicle sailed through its first 19 years to 50,000 miles with no significant problems, as is evidenced by the service and MOT history.

SLSHOP carried out a full vehicle appraisal in 2020 before the vehicle was sold to its current owner who has completed less than 1,000 miles since. This is a beautiful 300 SL with a completely transparent portfolio of service and maintenance work, meticulously documented to give future owners confidence in its provenance.

To appreciate the calibre of this vehicle, we recommend a quiet moment perusing the maintenance history over a coffee in our Showroom.

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.

SLSHOP Unique 2 & 3 year warranty

At the SLSHOP, not only do we know what an SL is capable of but we believe in the cars we sell.
