1988 Mercedes-Benz 420SL (R107)

Astral Silver Metallic (735) with Black Fabric Interior (071) and
Astral Silver Metallic Hard Top (735) and Black Fabric Soft Top (740)

Just over 2,000 examples of the 420SL were built in the last 3 years of R107 SL production, making these 4.2 litre V8 cars the least numerous of all models.

The silky smooth V8 offers all the power and acceleration of the 500SL, whilst being slightly more refined to drive.

This beautiful example boasts air conditioning, rear seats, cruise control, under shields, paintwork preservation, anti theft system and fire extinguisher, making it a very well specified car from new.

With it’s Astral Silver paintwork and perfectly contrasting Black Check Fabric Interior, it is one very smart R107 SL indeed and we can attest that it drives and handles exactly as a high calibre 420SL should.

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.
