About This Car
1988 Mercedes-Benz 420SL (R107)
Willow Green (568) with Beige Leather (275) and Black Fabric Soft Top (9001)
A wonderfully presented Mercedes-Benz R107 420SL in Willow Green with Beige Leather and Brown soft top. This is a superb colour combination which suits the later R107, a hue that is currently in high demand.
Regular visitors to our online showroom will know that any green is a rare colour for an SL. It is not often that we are able to offer high calibre cars in any shade of green, despite the fact that throughout it’s life cycle the R107 was available in no less than 17 different greens!
Willow Green is a Mercedes-Benz colour that’s synonymous with the late 1980s, appearing in SL brochures for the last 3 years of production from 1986-1989. As greens and browns fell out of favour in the early 2000s, many cars fell by the wayside. With these colours now more popular and in demand than ever, there could not be a better time to purchase a Willow Green with Beige SL. The colours are further complimented by the dark shades of wood within the cabin, resulting in a highly luxurious picture.
As with the 500SL, Cruise Control and Limited Slip Diff are standard options on the 420SL.
The factory fitted rear seats trimmed in matching Beige Leather that are fitted to this car would have been an expensive optional extra back in 1988.
Finding a 420SL in any condition is getting more difficult to do – this really is one special car to behold.

Where will your Mercedes-Benz take you?
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.
