About This Car

1988 Mercedes-Benz 300SL (R107)

Signal Red (075) with Beige MB Tex (075) and Black Fabric Soft Top (9001)

40,453 Miles

A beautiful R107 SL in the iconic combination of Red with Cream. Over time, some cars become closely associated with certain colours. Blame Dallas if you like, but Red and Cream will always be synonymous with the R107.

This low mileage example has documentation within it’s file dating back to 1992, and servicing paperwork covering the bulk of the car’s life.

Fitted with desirable rear seats, this is an excellent car for anyone searching for a low mileage six-cylinder in just the right specification.

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.
