Built in December 1988 and first registered in 1989, this Nautical Blue 300SL is one very fine example. A blue SL always looks fantastic with a beige interior, and this car does not disappoint. The MB Tex interior is in superb condition, and this car boasts some choice options. With Cruise Control, Factory Rear Seats, Paintwork Preservation and Metallic Paint, it would have left the showroom at £33,460 with options, or almost £90,000 in today’s money.
Nautical Blue was available from October 1984, replacing Lapis Blue Metallic as a softer, richer, more luxurious shade to take the SL to the end of production in 1989.
Known to SLSHOP for a decade, this car first arrived for service work in 2013. We have continued to maintain this car in the years since, including the last two services and the fitment of four new tyres and shock absorbers in August 2019. The service history file that accompanies this car is exhaustive, featuring all but one MOT certificate since the car was new. The MOT mileage shows a car that has been used sparingly but consistently, covering only a little more than 30,000 miles in the last 30 years.
The service book contains 22 stamps from 5 specialists, most of whom are Charles Sidney Mercedes-Benz. The two most recent stamps were inked by SLSHOP.
