1985 One of the finest 500SLs available For Sale

This car has been entrusted to Investor Classics to restore to former glory. The car belonged to a prominent family and the partner of the previous owner wished for it to be restored to near new levels of finish.

The car was suffering from cosmetic corrosion to every panel and the interior had begun to decay, however, the chassis and bulkheads were rot free.

Upon stripping the car down for a full cosmetic restoration, we realised that at some point in its history, the SL had been resprayed a much darker blue than the original Diamontblau that we found inside the door cards and on the VIN plate. The decision was made to return the vehicle to the original factory colour.

In addition to the exterior restoration (as seen in the photographs), the interior leather has been completely sanded back and recoloured. The exhaust manifold gaskets and brake lines have been changed, the 'Mexican hat' alloys have been refurbished and a full service has been carried out.

This car is now one of the finest available in respect of body condition and is available for viewing immediately.

ABOUT THE MERCEDES R107 SL

The R107 SL was a 2-seat convertible/roadster with standard soft top and optional hardtop and optional folding seats for the rear bench.

Volume production of the first R107 car, the 350 SL, started in April 1971 alongside the last of the W113 'Pagoda' cars; the 350 SLC followed in October.

From July 1974 both SL and SLC could also be ordered with a fuel-injected 2.8L straight-6 as 280 SL and SLC. US models sold from 1976 through 1979 used the Bosch K Jetronic system, an entirely mechanical fuel injection system.

​In September 1977 the 450 SLC 5.0 joined the line. This was a homologation version of the big coupĂ©, featuring a new all-aluminum five-liter V8, aluminum alloy bonnet and boot-lid, and a black rubber rear spoiler, along with a small front-lip spoiler. The 450SLC 5.0 was produced in order to homologate the SLC for the 1978 World Rally Championship.

​From 1981, the 107 series continued as the 280, 380 and 500 SL. At this time, the V8 engines were re-tuned for greater efficiency, lost a few hp and consumed less fuel- this largely due to substantially higher axle ratios that went from 3.27:1 to 2.47:1 for the 380 SL and from 2.72:1 to 2.27:1 for the 500 SL.

​From September 198 Bosch KE Jetronic fuel injection was fitted. This system varied from the earlier, all mechanical system by the introduction of a more modern engine management "computer", which controlled idle speed, fuel rate, and air/fuel mixture. The final car of the 18 years running 107 series was a 500 SL painted Signal red, built on August 4, 1989; it currently resides in the Mercedes-Benz museum in Stuttgart, Germany.
