Here we have a nice early R107 Series SL. It is a 1972 Mercedes-Benz 350SL, Automatic, finished in Metallic Red with Black Interior, it is an early car, with Wind Up Windows and the basic interior, these are getting harder to find now and are becoming incresingly desirable. Our car has covered 100k Miles from new with a huge history folder with nearly every MOT from new. Much recent work has taken place and it drives very well indeed. It comes with it correct colour Hardtop, although this would benefit from some remedial work. The Black soft Top is in very good condition and she presents very well for her age.

 

Although larger than their predecessors, the 350SL convertible and 350SLC coupé retained the overall look of the long-running 230/250/280SL family and were the first of this line to use a V8 engine, the latter's 200bhp more than offsetting the increase in bulk. All-independent suspension ensured superb ride and handling, while four-wheel disc brakes (ventilated at the front) helped restrain the 130mph-plus performance. Luxuriously equipped in the finest Mercedes-Benz tradition, the pair were more sports-tourers than outright sports cars, a fact that did nothing whatsoever to harm sales that totalled in excess of 29,000 units between 1971 and 1980.

 

This is a lovely useable example that can be used daily and improved upon as you choose, she has a new MOT and is Historic Tax Free. Possbily the cheapest entry into classic SL ownership, a very good honest example in a lovely colour scheme that will not hang around long at this price.
