About This Car
1989 Mercedes-Benz 300SL (R107)
Nautical Blue (929) with Beige Leather (275)
A super opportunity to acquire a well cared for SL in one of the most desirable colour combinations.
This car features cruise control, rear seats and leather, all expensive original factory options. Interestingly there is a 260 code within the build sheet for ‘deletion of type designation on boot lid’, although at some point in the history of the car the 300SL moniker has reappeared – whether the next owner removes it will be down to them.
Accompanying this car is a fantastic history file, including documentation and a magazine cutting. This car was displayed in Mercedes-Benz of Bristol’s showroom for 3 months as the same technician stamped the original PDI in 1989 and the service book in 2008!
The car has an aftermarket alarm system which was fitted in 2009.
It is a real pleasure to find the original correspondance from 1988 between the sales person and first owner of the car. Also present is the original vehicle invoice, stating the options of Cruise Control, Rear Child Seats and Leather Seating, as well as Metallic Paint, giving a total On The Road Price of £36,500, giving it an equivalent price of £ 100,999.92 in today’s money.
Every service invoice and receipt appears to be present from the day the car was new. This car is only 1 previous owner, always serviced by Mercedes-Benz main dealers until 2019.
A superb car for the collector, investor and enthusiast with all paperwork present and correct.
A delightful find.

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.
