This beautiful low mileage car comes from just four careful owners, with a fully documented history file that explains in detail the story behind each owner.
With a delivery note dated 3rd February 1989, this Diamond Blue 300SL cost the first owner DM 82,822.20 as stated by the original build sheet. It was ordered in Germany and driven back to England, with the first owner covering just 1,200 miles before selling the car in August of 1989.
The second owner saw this car advertised in the newspaper and purchased it for his wife, who enjoyed this car for some 22 years. During this time it was used sparingly, and serviced by Mercedes-Benz main dealers. 23,800 miles later the car changed hands once more, this time being sold to a gent who would only cover 2,000 miles, taking the total mileage to 27,000 from the first three owners. It was then sold by a Mercedes-Benz main dealer to a gentleman who was looking for an exceptionally good 300SL with very low mileage. In his ownership the car has done just 395 miles and that is exactly how it appears in our showroom today, showing 27,395 on the odometer.
This Diamond Blue car is once again being offered from a small private collection and represents an excellent chance to acquire a low mileage car in a highly desirable colour.
A detailed history file accompanies the car, with the key service stamp dates shown below. What makes this car an even more alluring prospect is the presence of the original Sunday Times Motoring Newspaper page dated 27th August 1989.
