About This Car
1988 Mercedes-Benz R107 500 SL
Arctic White (147U) with Royal Blue Leather (272) and Dark Blue Fabric Soft Top (5010)
White is a wonderful colour for an R107 SL, especially when combined with dark blue leather as we see here. This late model V8 would have been one very expensive car when purchased new, as it boats heated front seats and factory fitted (leather) rear seats. Ticking these two boxes added a significant sum to the list price of the car, making this a very high specification vehicle indeed.
A previous owner has taken the time to create a hand written top sheet detailing all aspects of the car’s service history. The box file that accompanies this car is extensive. After spending time browsing through the documents present with this car it becomes clear that previous owners have loved and cherished it regardless of the cost.

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.
