About This Car

1989 Mercedes-Benz 300SL (R107)

Diamond Blue Metallic (355) with Grey Leather (278) with

Diamond Blue Metallic Hard Top (355) and Dark Blue Fabric Soft Top (5010)

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.

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.
