Ordered new in Sweden

A Mercedes-Benz R107 SL with manual gearbox is a very rare car indeed, but to find a late model, six-cylinder 300SL with such a long list of optional extras makes this car a truly alluring find.

On top of the standard factory fitted equipment, this car boasts Heated Seats, Outside Air Temperature Gauge, Steering Wheel Airbag, Paintwork Preservation, Anti Theft Device, Folding Centre Armrest, Air Conditioning, Headlamp Wash / Wipe, Dark Blue Fabric Soft Top and deletion of the ‘300SL’ bootlid badge.

This is a beautifully presented car that is a credit to it’s former keepers. It drives exactly as a good 300SL should, with the added bonus of a manual gearbox, allowing full use of the potential from the three-litre engine.

A large amount of paperwork and invoices accompany this car, detailing a life of care and maintenance in Sweden.

Recently been imported to the UK and ready to be enjoyed.

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.
