1984 Mercedes 280 SL R107 For Sale
The time has come to sell another one of my collection. This beautiful very original Mercedes 280 SL convertible with original hardtop. This SL has been cared for all it’s life, still with its original paint and factory soft top with no rust anywhere and looking as clean under neither as it does on top. I have owned the car since August 2015 and the previous owner had her for 10 years before that, she drives and look amazing, with electric windows, cruise control, headlight wash, wipe and removable wind deflector. Lovely original hardtop with stand and cover. The car has two sets of wheels, the original Mexican hat alloys, that have been refurbished at some time and a full 5 set of Mercedes steel wheels, with the correct brake cooling vanes, which were shot blasted, powder coated and have a set of correct Mercedes stainless steel wheel covers to give the car a lovely period look. The same tyres fit both sets of wheels, so its a easy swap back to the alloys if preferred, I just like the look of the old style wheels. The engine bay is very clean and original with parts correct, I have replaced both under bonnet heat pads, as these had deteriorated to far to save.The rear Mercedes brake callipers were rebuilt last year and new Girling braided flexible brake hoses fitted to the whole car. She always passes her MOT first time with comments from the tester about how nice she is underneath. Current MOT runs until 31/07/2020 and the mileage is 79,150 Can have a new MOT before being sold. Interior is a lovely place to be on a summer day with unmarked seats and carpets and all the wood still has good colour to it. Ribbed over mats throughout completes the original look and feel. Complete with factory tool roll. Loads of old paperwork, receipts, MOT’s etc. the previous owner was a engineer and kept lots of notes, a full Mercedes workshop manual and parts book is included with the sale.
