1988 Mercedes-Benz 420 SL For Sale by Auction

H&H Classics Limited - Imperial War Museum, Duxford Auction Viewing Day: Tuesday 18th June 2019 Auction Day: Wednesday 19th June 2019 @ 13:00. Estimate: £30,000 - £40,000 Registration No:A8 RHU Chassis No:WDB1070472A082344 - 16,923 miles from new in the hands of one family - Offered with original book pack with service book and handbooks - Both hard and soft tops The 1988 420 SL now offered is a very tidy-looking example, as well it might be, having covered just 16,923 miles from new in the hands of one family. It is finished in a pleasing shade of Light Metallic Green that's matched to a Cream leather interior. It was fitted with a new battery last year and is currently considered by the vendor to have 'very good' bodywork, paintwork, upholstery, V8 engine and automatic transmission. The Benz comes complete with both a Black soft top and colour-keyed factory hard top, plus its original book pack, collection of invoices, pre-delivery check list and a large collection of old MOTs. A fine-looking example of popular breed that's barely yet run in! Mercedes have been producing an SL (Sport Leicht) model or range of models since 1954, when the landmark 300SL was unveiled. The similarly styled, but mechanically unrelated, 190 followed in 1955, completing the first generation of cars. The second generation SL (W113) began with the 230 of 1963. It was distinguished by its lower waistline, big curved screens and a distinctive optional hardtop that earned it the nickname of 'pagoda top'. The larger, third generation model (R107) was launched in 1971. The newcomer featured a two-door monocoque bodyshell with independent suspension all round. The power assisted steering was Daimler-Benz's own recirculating ball system. Braking was by discs all round - ventilated on the front. Over its very successful 19 year production span the R107 featured no less than two straight-six engines and six V8 units. The 420 SL variant is understood to be the rarest of all the 237,287 R107 SLs made, with just 2,148 leaving the factory between 1985 and 1989. Its 4.2-litre V8 produced some 215bhp at 5200rpm - sufficient output to endow the big Benz with effortless acceleration and a top speed of 130mph, while remaining more economical than its bigger-engined siblings.
