1972 Mercedes-Benz 350SL V8 (R107) #2193 Early No Headrest Model For Sale

1972 Mercedes-Benz 350SL (R107)

Beige Metallic (462) with Contrasting Bamboo MB Tex Interior (167)

The first stamp printed in the service book of this splendid 350SL is dated June 7th 1972, making this one of the earliest R107 examples we have hosted in the showroom. It was registered on 17th August 1972.

Sitting in it’s period correct and original chrome wheel trims, the car looks markedly different to the later post 1986 cars with their flat face alloy wheels and revised valances. These early cars are gaining in popularity, and it gives us great pleasure to re-homing early cars at a greatly increased rate than we have done in recent years. As Pagoda values and demand have increased, collectors, investors and enthusiasts are now starting to look at the early R107 and the more ‘1970s’ the colour combination the better…!

With it’s beige metallic paintwork and two-tone tan interior, there can’t be a colour swatch that better suits an early R107 than this.

Finding an early R107 SL of this calibre is a difficult task. Early cars in any condition are getting hard to source, so a 1972 car with such a pleasing interior, no headrests and both door mirrors intact is really quite the find.

An original book pack accompanies the car, being notable different to the style usually found in later years. A tan leather contains the original instruction books for the car and for the audio equipment. The car does benefit from a modern CD player head unit by Blaupunkt, a tasteful modification.

Service stamps indicate this car was cared for by Jacksons of Jersey up until 1989 when it showed 28, 584 miles, then by Falles Garage until 1998 when the car indicated 46, 500 miles. After this the car moved to Ireland, with a service marked at 51, 848 miles in 2015 but with only a signature and no stamp. Maintenance between 2015 and the present day is detailed by receipts and invoices within the leather folder.

Prior to it’s arrival in our showroom this car has undergone significant work, with bills on file reaching almost £10, 000 for tasks completed within the last 6 months. This work included waxoyling the bulkhead area, inspecting the timing chain, new exhaust components and a refurbish of the original power steering pump. The car is presented ready to be used and enjoyed by the next owner.
