About This Car

1983 Mercedes-Benz R107 280 SL

Labrador Blue (312) with Blue Leather (252) and Dark Blue Fabric Soft Top (5010)

19,000 miles

This unique SL boasts a number of unique and hard to find features, chief of all is the 5 speed manual gearbox. A 280SL is no slouch by any standards, but with a 5 speed manual gearbox full use can be made of the engine’s capabilities. This car also features ABS braking, full leather and leather rear seats, all of which were expensive factory options back in 1983.

Mercedes-Benz offered 16 different shades of blue throughout the production lifetime of the R107, with Labrador Blue only offered from 1982 to 1984 – making this a very special car indeed.

Showing just 19,000 miles and 13 service stamps, the car has with it all relevant dealer packs, manuals and service books as well as both roof handles.

Overall this SL represents a rare opportunity to acquire an extremely well cared for early car in a wonderful specification – a very collectible Mercedes-Benz.

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.
