I am selling the car for my friend, (my solicitor) who has two R107 SL’s and is thinning his collection down a little.
This car was previously owned by an experienced mechanic who was drawn to it because as he stated “it is very solid.” The usual weak areas on these cars are good, including the bulkhead, sills, arches, hood recess and boot wells.
This is a good solid unrestored car that has age related blemishes. It is not a recently blown over car designed to cover up what horrors may lurk beneath. The foot wells are dry and the interior does not smell damp. That speaks volumes for a 107 SL.
I collected this car for the current owner as he wanted me to inspect it before purchase. I liked its integrity and also what the seller had to say. I drove it home for 300 miles from the Newcastle area to Essex and it was absolutely fine with no issues whatsoever.
I currently store the car and use it regularly. It starts first time and performs very well. It’s a classic that can actually be used everyday in modern traffic with no problems like poor performance or overheating etc. I love the 80’s Mercedes build quality. They really were ‘engineered like no other car’ back then.
Having owned a 1983 280SL myself, I believe that this car is as good as it gets in this price bracket. Very few of this value have had over £5K spent on them in one go plus a brand new soft top at £750! The all important (and very expensive) chrome bumpers and bright work are excellent and the bodywork is nice and solid. It’s a useable turn key classic that you can enjoy and rely on, but most importantly, it is appreciating in value. Your money is safe in this R107 SL.
