About This Car

1989 Mercedes-Benz 300SL (R107)

Signal Red (568) with Beige Leather (275) and Black Fabric Roof (9001)

11,313 miles

The R107 SL is an icon it’s own right, an elegant silhouette that stood the test of time. As a classic car, this generation of SL has remained popular and desirable ever since production ceased in 1989. Throughout the 18 year production run of the R107, there are colour schemes that became the signature for the model – Signal Red with Cream is the ultimate swan song of the world’s favourite automotive status symbol.

This particular 300SL is a car that is well known our staff, as it counts amongst previous owners one of the non executive directors of SLSHOP. After deciding to move into a Pagoda, we sold the car on his behalf in 2017, and are now proud to offer it for sale once again.

Showing just 11,313 miles, this is an exceptionally low mileage 300SL. What makes this car so attractive is the clear evidence of careful ownership under the hands of 5 previous keepers. The service book shows maintenance work at 835 miles, 1942 miles, 5073 miles, 6132 miles, 6277 miles, 7138 miles, 10559 miles, 11234 miles – all correctly timed to demonstrate a cherished life.

Cosmetically and mechanically this car is exactly as a good R107 should be, something we can attest to owing to the fact we have cared for this car for the last four years.

An excellent opportunity to acquire a low mileage, Signal Red 300SL with verified SLSHOP ownership history.

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.

SLSHOP Unique 2 & 3 year warranty
