About This Car

1988 Mercedes-Benz 300SL

Blue Black Metallic (199) with Grey MB Tex (178) and

76,000 miles

This Mercedes-Benz 300SL is well known to SLSHOP, having been sold by us to the current owner back in 2015.

Built in April of 1988 and finished in lovely Blue Black Metallic, this car is perfectly combined with the grey interior – including rear passenger seats, an expensive optional extra.

Late model cars in metallic colours will always be in high demand, their smart finish forever associated with the pinnacle of 1980s motoring that the SL represents.

First registered in August of 1988, it boasts a full service history file all demonstrated in the stamped book. The manufacturer book pack is present, along with the spare keys and a folder full of receipts and invoices.

In 2018 this car attended SLSHOP for a significant amount of work, including clean down of all the brake pipes, adjustment to the steering box, new timing seal, crank seal, exhaust manifolds, a pillar seals, window switches, steering idler bushes, viscous coupling, soft top seals and rear light seals.

Prior to arriving in our showroom the car was given a full service as well as all new brakes at the front, including discs, pads and calipers.

This car is offered by SLSHOP with scope for some cosmetic improvement, a car that is mechanically very good and ready to be used. A lovely car and a great opportunity to get behind the wheel of an SLSHOP approved 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.

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.
