Overview of this Mercedes-Benz

1988 Mercedes-Benz 300SL (R107) – Former SLSHOP R107 SL

Impala Brown Metallic (441) with Beige Leather (275) and
Impala Brown Metallic Hard Top (441) with Dark Brown Fabric Soft Top (8023)

Arriving just as the R107 SL was being phased out into the R129, the 300 SL pictured here falls into the category of the ‘late cars’ produced between 1986 and 1989. In today’s market, they are highly revered due to their revised handling, better braking, larger wheels, and a slightly revised interior over the earlier R107s. Equipment levels also increased, along with a smart new range of colours. Shades such as Diamond Blue, Almandine Red and Impala Brown were luxurious new metallic paints that have become synonymous with these late cars.

Any enthusiast who inspects this R107 SL will note the extent to which the former owners have documented every stage in the vehicle’s life. Accompanying the car is the original purchase invoice printed by Robinsons Autostar Garage Ltd. In Norfolk. It was here that the vehicle was collected by a Mr Dickinson, who opted for the following options: Metallic Impala Brown (441) paintwork with paintwork preservation, Beige Leather (275) upholstery, an outside temperature gauge and headlamp wash/wipe. These were expensive options in 1988, bringing the total bill to over £34,000 – almost £80,000 in today’s money.

Flick through the service history and you’ll notice primarily main dealer service records throughout the vehicle’s life; with Mercedes-Benz Mann (Isle of Mann) featuring in the service book since 2006. SLSHOP then took ownership of the vehicle in 2020, carrying out remedial works before selling it to the current owner who has sadly been unable to enjoy the vehicle.

A calibre of a classic Mercedes-Benz is not only measured in its physical presence, cleanliness, and operation, but the written history that comes in tandem with it. This Impala Brown 300 SL is the embodiment of classic car passion, simply because every single invoice and paper detail has been categorised to give future enthusiasts the opportunity to maintain its legacy.

This is a 300 SL ready for you to enjoy and preserve for another 34 years.
