This delightful 300SL was built in May 1989, placing it amongst the last of the 13,742 examples of the 300SL that left Sindelfingen between 1986 and 1989.

Finished in the rare colour of Midnight Blue, it is complimented by a grey leather interior, along with rear passenger seats. Leather and rear seating were cost options, along with headlamp wash and wipe – standard fit on the 420SL and 500SL but £309.13 on a 300SL. The list price and options would give this car a ‘new’ price of £34,566, or £91,181.50 in today’s money.

With the Dark Blue fabric soft top, this is a fantastic looking car, with the dark paintwork allowing the bright chrome to really shine.

The car comes from long term ownership, having been cared for by the same keeper for the last two decades. During this time it has covered less than 10,000 miles, and been looked after by Weald Garage. The history file illustrates a picture of a well cared for car, used sparingly and taken to the local garage whenever servicing or maintenance has been needed.

Prior to being presented in our showroom it has undergone a refreshment program with SLSHOP, addressing some of the key areas and of course updating the service record. This has included a new Blaupunkt Barcelona car radio with new speakers inside the car, whilst underneath has seen some attention to the jacking points and beneath the ABS pump. A new timing seal was fitted, along with new brake hoses for the rear of the car.

With 86,000 miles from new, this is a superb opportunity to get yourself into a rare car in a very desirable colour.

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.
