Car History

This 420 SL is very unique with a mileage of just 1400 miles from new with just one owner.  The 420 SL was delivered new to a Mr S in Hornchurch  where it was supplied from the main dealer of Lancaster Europa Mercedes-Benz  registering in 5.2.1990  making this one of the last models built on a G plate. The service book has three main dealer stamps, during the period of ownership locally the car was maintained by a local garage in Cornwall where fluids and regular exercise was maintained. The condition is what is called out of the box in every aspect on the underbody, engine, interior, and coachwork, The factory seam sealer and underseal are all present as it left the factory in all the right places which is remarkable after 29 years, the engine decals and factory coloured markings are all present including the suspension and drive train which was displayed on the dealers PDi service. A R107 420 SL do not come up this often in this super low mileage very often with a driving experience to match. spare keys, plastic dealer wallet with service book, manuals, roof handle keys all present. The hardtop feels it has only been dismounted from the SL on a PDi which shows the black soft top is  factory new in condition. The original tyres are kept for the vehicle for show purpose and can be changed if decided to be a SL for the road enjoyment. The spare wheel, tool kit, first aid box have never seen daylight since new. This SL is a pure Classic collectors dream with a mileage and V8 to match.

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.
