3,100 miles since rebuild

This car was built by SLSHOP then secured by a private collector who owned a ‘full house’ of Signal Red R107s… An early 500, a late 300 and the SportLine. It is now offered for sale direct from this collection.

This is a completely restored, upgraded and modified 300SL complete with 5-speed manual gearbox. It is quite simply thrilling to drive. For further details and to discuss a test drive, please contact Bruce.

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.
