The Mercedes-Benz R107 SL model was launched in 1971 and continued a tradition of two-door sports tourers from the world famous German manufacturer that dates back to 1954. The car featured a two-door monocoque bodyshell with independent all-round suspension. The success and popularity of the model is borne out by the 237,287 units that were produced during the cars impressive 18 year build run.
This well presented example is finished in red with a mushroom interior and is showing a modest 91,000 miles on the odometer. Recently the car has been treated to renovation work including a reconditioned heater box and a restored and treated bulkhead preventing it from any further corrosion. The 300SL also benefited from a comprehensive service including a new radiator, new brake discs, pads, and brake hoses as well as a new soft top. Reported to be in good driving order the Mercedes is ready to be enjoyed by a new custodian.
