A beautiful R107 420SL finished in Diamond Blue metallic with matching hard top, dark blue soft top and dark blue cloth interior. A very well cared for car that has only covered 98k miles from new supported by a full service history.

First registered in October ’86, shortly after the facelifted SL became available, by Mercedes main dealers, Reliance of Chingford. The original owner specified the car with air conditioning, cruise control, and rear seats amongst the equipment listed below.

Full service history comprising of 18 stamps (MB main dealer and specialists) and was last serviced less than 300 miles ago. To the tremendous benefit of this car, the last owner has spent well over £10,000 going through the car mechanically to ensure it is in excellent condition and thoroughly refreshed. This has included a top end engine rebuild, new fuel injection, new air conditioning compressor, brakes calipers and suspension dampers to name but a few items. A great reassurance for the new owner.

All original books and manuals come with the car along with a large folder of paperwork. HPI clear with certificate. Long-term, mature ownership.

Overall the car is in extremely good condition throughout and this one drives particularly well. The fairly rare factory air conditioning is a welcome addition in the recent heat waves.

Overall this is a lovely, very well-cared for example of a facelift 107 SL. Good options and with a sensible mileage too. A perfect classic to use and enjoy.
