About This Car
Mercedes-Benz 380 SL R107 1988 F plate.
Cream leather 275.
Dark Blue Soft Top.
Painted Chrome wheel Hub caps.
This is a Ex SL Shop car we sold back in late 2015 to a local classic car collector which has been used very little in his ownership. We have now taken it back into our custody to take out a new service schedule to our SL Shop standard. This is a very nice early period looking 380 SL with the pretty painted Hub caps that give it the Classic SL look. Petrol Blue with cream leather is a desirable colour combination combined with a nice V8 all alloy engine. The service booklet carries 14 service stamps four of those are SL Shop in which during its ownership we have maintained the vehicle. A very comprehensive service folder with MOT certificates, service receipts. The Vehicle was manufactured in 1984 but never registered until 1988 hence the F plate registration. The service booklet, wallet, manuals, spare key, roof handles are all present. This 380 SL V8 is waiting to be enjoyed which is complemented with a nice low mileage of just 54000.

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.
