The combination of Air Conditioning, cruise Control make this a very good contender for a collector as it becomes very desirable with this specification. This was a factory collection car on the very last of production  run August 1st 1989 G plate. There are a display of 16 service stamps and most all MOT certificates present with the dealer package of manuals, maps, spare keys, two roof handle keys, service booklet and plastic wallet.

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.
