This Mercedes 420SL carries a covering letter from the original owner who used the car sparingly until he passed it over to the next careful collector in 1999. It has been passed through a few collectors hands over the past few years where now it has been returned back to us from Mr Stevens where he has cared for it since 2014. The condition of this well presented Classic 420 SL is displayed in our showroom now awaiting another custodian to enjoy it for seasonal use or touring Southern France region, a low mileage SL in this colour combination carrying a V8 is a nice place to be.
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.
