About This Car
1989 Mercedes-Benz 300SL (R107)
Astral Silver (735) with Mid Red Leather (277) and Black Fabric Soft Top (9001)
With just over 51,000 miles showing on the odometer, this striking car is an unusual find. The combination of Astral Silver paintwork with Mid Red Leather interior suits a late R107 perfectly. It is the sort of colour combination that one would expect to find in Mercedes-Benz showrooms today, a contemporary looking style for a car three decades old. Many of the cars that come through our showrooms feature black, blue or grey leather – mid red leather, although beautiful in it’s own right, is a rare option to find on a late model R107.
This car benefits from the addition of rear seating in matching mid red leather, an expensive option back in 1989.

Where will your Mercedes-Benz take you?
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.
