About This Car

1988 Mercedes-Benz 300SL (R107)

Astral Silver (735) with Beige Leather (275) and Black Fabric Soft Top (9001)

62,573 miles

This is a very late (November) 1988 car, being built towards the end of R107 production.

A beautiful looking SL in the premium colour combination of Astral Silver with Beige Leather interior.

With the full leather interior including leather rear seats, this would have been one extremely expensive 300SL back in 1988.

This lovely car also benefits from a central arm rest.

A superb opportunity to acquire one very fine feeling R107 SL.

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.
