The vehicle was purchased new in 16. 5 1989 by Mrs S Jones until 1992 where Mr N Kinsley purchased it again from the supplying dealer Normans of London and drove the SL all the way to Portugal for their Honeymoon covering a distance of over 2000 miles. Mr Kinsley until this day kept this vehicle in his possession until The SL Shop took out a full comprehensive service and maintenance plan to bring this car back to the condition you see it today. It still smells and looks as fresh as the day it was purchased, the period Telephone was left for authenticity from the 80’s time. The interior seats look totally brand new as they were covered with seat covers from the time of purchase. The interior wood and carpets all follow the same the condition. The service book displays early days of servicing from MB dealers only until the vehicle was stored due to working overseas. The dealer supplying pack of manuals etc is all present. Just a beautiful car to own..

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.
