About This Car
1989 Mercedes-Benz R107 300 SL
Diamond Blue (355) with Mushroom Sports Check (075) and Black Fabric Soft Top (9001)
Diamond Blue is a very popular colour for a late model SL, complimented best by a light beige or grey interior. This car features Mushroom Sports Check, an ideal material for touring in warmer climates. Further evidence that the first owner intended to use this car for long distance travel is the presence of cruise control and headlamp wash/wipe, both of which were expensive optional extras on the 300SL. This car also features the boot spoiler more commonly seen on 500SL models.
Cruise Control, Headlamp Wash/Wipe and Rear Seats, adding an extra £1018.73 onto the original list price of £32,750. That would give it an equivalent purchase price in today’s money of over £89,000.
This car has been known to us for some time, showing 14 stamps in the service book including our own. We have recently serviced this car including renewing the all important suspension bushes, fluids and tyres, all of which is documented in the extensive history file.
It is now ready for a new owner to use for continental touring – just as the first owner intended.

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.
