The Mercedes-Benz R107 SL model was launched in 1971 and continued a tradition of two-door sports tourers from the world famous German manufacturer that dates back to 1954. The car featured a two-door monocoque bodyshell with independent all round suspension. The success and popularity of the model is borne out by the 237,287 units that were produced during the cars impressive 18 year build run.
This handsome 300SL presents well in Arctic White with blue sports check seats and a blue fabric hood. The car is described by the owner as a very user friendly model that drives beautifully. We are also informed that this SL has recently benefitted from a significant amount of preparation work that included attention to both the cosmetics and mechanics.

Also present is a significant folder of paperwork and invoices dating back to the early 1990s. Offered to auction with a V5C registration document and an MoT test certificate valid until January 2021, this car will deliver enormous fun for a relatively small outlay.
