Production of the Mercedes-Benz R107 spanned 18 years, and in that time the SL was available in no less than 17 different shades of green. Pine Green is rare, appearing only for the last three years of the R107 timeline. Being a metallic paint, this colour would have added £583.44 to the list price, or £1,539.04 in equivalent money today.

Pine Green Metallic is rare to find on an SL, but the addition of Fir Green Leather (276) makes this a colour combination we at SLSHOP have not come across before. The green scheme encompasses the carpets and lower dashboard, and unusually for a 107, the upper dashboard too. On many cars, green on green would be an odd combination, but with this R107 the result is fantastic.

Metallic paint isn’t the only expensive factory option that this car enjoys. Front Leather Seats (276) with Seat Heating(873) and Rear Leather Seats (565), An Outside Air Temperature Gauge (240), Paintwork Preservation (524), , Behr Air Conditioner (585) and a Fire Extinguisher (682) added a total of £4,941.91 to the list price of £32,750, giving a total ‘new’ price for this 300SL of £37,244.91 – equating to just under £100,000 in today’s money. A period Blaupunkt stereo completes the picture, with the grey head unit and gold typeface perfectly complimenting the green upholstery and wood veneer inside the cabin. The way the colours combine inside this car is just superb.

Interestingly this 300SL was ordered from Rose & Young in Caterham, Surrey. The site was once a beautiful Art Deco car dealership, which Surrey residents will know from local news. After the dealer vacated the premises, the building fell into disrepair and has been the subject of much debate over recent decades regarding the future of the site. An interesting connection to the past, and another curious feature of what is a very enticing Mercedes-Benz.

Ordered in March of 1989, this car shows a pre-delivery inspection date and stamp on 2nd August 1989, showing as Rose & Young. The original order form is present with the car, both in terms of the hand written dealer note and the printed Mercedes-Benz confirmation.

All three original dealer brochures are with the car, the complete SL brochure, colour pamphlet and interior finish booklet, all with original dealer stickers on the cover. A very nice addition to a very original car.

Also accompanying the car is the original manufacturers book pack in original Mercedes-Benz clear wallet, as well as the original Mercedes-Benz vehicle order conformation… detailing the unusual colour combination and confirming the factory options.

This is a fine looking car, inside and out, a certain head turner and one to be shown.

With just the mileage just about to click over to 42,000 and one previous owner, this well cared for SL represents an opportunity to get behind the wheel of a rare and prestigious looking car in an unusual colour.

We are unlikely to find another.
