The W107 model Mercedes Benz SL is an absolute classic which lasted in production for almost 20 years. The W107 was in production from 1972 replacing the iconic Pagoda roof model which came off the production line in 1971.
This very smart, original 280SL has a recorded mileage of 73000. The car has been with its last owner for two years and has covered several thousand faultless miles. We don't have early history with the car but the mileage does fit with the excellent condition of the running gear and general original condition of the car. The SL has been thoroughly enjoyed, used without the hard top roof over the summer for touring and occasionally used with the top on during winter months. The car has proven to be a superb, reliable all year round classic that offers excellent performance and reliability.
B88 CPU is a very smart, honest example with a well kept, original upholstery. Seats, carpets, dash and door cards are in good original condition and the interior represents a car that has been well cared for and maintained. The leather upholstery has aged well and is commensurate with the recorded mileage. The body is particularly good with excellent wings, superb wheel arches and beautiful straight panels. The paintwork is of an excellent standard with a high quality finish that really gleams. The chrome work is bright and the wheels are superb and very bright having being re-painted. The engine bay and boot areas are clean and the hood and hard top are both in very good order.
The Mercedes is a superb driver and has been driven to us from Ripon on two occasions. The last owner has used the SL on a regular basis, often driving it up to Scotland touring. Our SL has a smooth gear change, strong, quiet engine with lots of power offering impressive performance. The 280SL handles superbly and brakes are efficient and the car pulls up perfectly straight. This example has been very well maintained and offers excellent value.
