About This Car

1988 Mercedes-Benz 300SL (R107)

29,000 miles

Signal Red (568) with Black Fabric (071) and
Signal Red Hard Top (568) and Black Fabric Soft Top (9001)

This beautiful June ’88 300SL has covered less than 30,000 miles in it’s 32 year lifetime. Ordered in what would become the most iconic R107 SL colour of Signal Red, the combination of Fabric interior (often known as Sports Check) sets this car apart. Despite the sheer number of cars we see in Signal Red, it feels a little while since we had an example in the showroom with Black Sports Check, and it’s a refreshing change. This car looks, drives and feels just as crisp as when it was new. The Fabric interior offers cool seats in the summer and warm in the winter, without the shock of sitting down on burning hot or freezing cold leather! It’s a material that wears well, feels comfortable and airy over long distances and suits the era perfectly.

With a documented history file and an up to date service record, this car could be the SL you’ve been waiting for.

Present with this car is a detailed file of service and maintenance history spanning three decades. The original service book, book pack and manuals are present, along with an original brochure. All of the servicing and maintenance is broken down on a detailed top sheet, with all servicing and MOT mileages detailed since new.

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.
