About This Car
1989 Mercedes-Benz 300SL (R107)
Black (040) with Grey Leather (278) and Black Fabric Soft Top (9001)
A fine looking 300SL in Black with Grey Leather, a highly desirable colour combination with optional rear seats.
Black is an unusual colour for an R107 SL, not one that we come across every day, more so with a 300SL. We have seen more Black and Blue Black cars in 420SL and 500SL form, making this 300SL a really rather alluring opportunity.
With the polished chrome setting off the black paintwork perfectly, the iconic 1980s shape almost has an air of 1960s dazzle.
Leather and rear seating would have been expensive factory options in 1989, and the first owner also specified the optional paintwork protection package.
This well cared for SL boasts a service book stamped at 6,161 miles, 9,883 miles, 14,316 miles, 25,186 miles, 31,809 miles, 36,195 miles, 42,423 miles, 54,839 miles, 61,107 miles, 65,624 miles and 74,505 miles. Present with the car is the original black leather folder with manufacturers books, along with the radio / stereo guide and details for the alarm and immobiliser. There is a folder of invoices and receipts demonstrating this is a well cared for car.
A superb chance to acquire a very Germanic looking car, a rare six-cylinder example in serious black.

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.
