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 380SL has covered 92,000 miles from new with a comprehensive service history. The car was supplied new to a lady owner in Northants and the first nine services were all with the supplying dealer, Castles of Churchgate Ltd, Leicester. Castles Mercedes maintained the car until 1993 and from 1995 at 55,131 miles Normand Mercedes, City of London Ltd maintained the car for eight years with five services up to 84,000 miles. Since 2003 the Mercedes Benz has only covered 8,000 miles and MOT records support this.
YRP 252W is a very honest example with a well kept, original upholstery. Seats, carpets, dash and door cards are in lovely original condition and the interior represents a car that has been well cared for and maintained. The body is particularly good with excellent wings and straight panels. The paintwork is of a very high standard and chrome work is bright. 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 with a smooth gear change, strong, quiet engine with lots of power giving superb performance. Our 380SL handles superbly and brakes are very efficient. The car stands very well and represents good value for such a well looked after, open top sports car.
