About This Car

1989 Mercedes-Benz 300SL (R107)

Signal Red (568) with Beige Fabric (075) and
Signal Red Hardtop (568) and Black Fabric Soft Top (9001)

61,258 miles

A high specification 300SL with Outside Air Temperature Gauge, Rear Seats and Beige Fabric, a desirable car that benefits from a significant recent spend – and an impeccable service record.

This Signal Red Mercedes-Benz 300SL was first registered on 11th August 1989 to Gynwebb Ltd, before ownership transferred to a Mrs D, who owned the car until 2003. From there it was purchased from a Reg Vardy dealership by a Mrs B, another long term keeper who adored this car for 17 years.

For every year since 2010 it has attended Mercedes-Benz of Teeside for a visual health check and MOT, covering very few miles in the last decade. Maintenance records on file date back to 2003, with the history painting a picture of a well cared for, lightly used car that has always been driven consistently.

Recent works include all new discs and pads, brake fluid, subframe bushes, anti-roll bar bushes, timing case seal, oil filter and fuel filter, new bonnet pad, all new tyres, full wheel refurbishment, front and rear propshaft couplings and refreshed paintwork including the hardtop – more than £10,000 has been spent to present this car in our showroom, much to the benefit of the next keeper. All of this work is documented within the file.

An excellent opportunity to purchase an honest and well cared for car that’s been loved by just two former keepers – a car that has recently enjoyed a significant recommissioning spend after years of limited usage, now ready and waiting for a new owner to use and enjoy.

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.
