Overview of this Mercedes-Benz

1988 300 SL (R107) Light Ivory (6230) with Mid-Red Leather (277)

& Dark Brown Fabric Soft Top (8023)

SLSHOP are delighted to bring this exceptional 300 SL to market. Following long-term ownership, this 300 SL has been cared for by a small number of owners since being registered in 1988. Ordered new from the factory by a P. Sheehan in the factory correct Light-Ivory Metallic (623O), choosing to pair this oriental colour-scheme with a beautiful Mid-Red Leather (277).

Presented in low mileage state and with an immaculate paint finish, this 300 SL stands out from its UK and foreign R107 SL counterparts. Where the R107 SL is commonly found in reds, blues, greys, and browns, a 300 SL from the second-to-last year of production in Light Ivory Metallic (6230) is an unusual find.

Inside, the Leather is plush and absent of any rips or stress – this is testament to the commitment its previous keepers have made towards preserving this beautiful vehicle. The Burl Wood central console glistens and is presented without any cracks. The current keeper has added an aftermarket head unit to give driver and passenger added driving pleasure.

This is a chance to own a grand tourer with distinct character, prepared and ready to be used and loved by a discerning enthusiast.

Optional Extras:

Launched in 1986, the 300 SL replaced the 280 SL. At the same time, a range of improvements made by Stuttgart were introduced to the whole R107 SL lineup. These included, a wider track, the addition of a front valance and the addition of 16” flat face alloy wheels. This was accompanied by changes to the interior central console, as well as an array of new optional extras.
