About this Mercedes 350SL Convertible

First registered August 1971, this must be one of the earliest surviving 350 R107 series SL’s Finished in the enduring Bright Red with Black leather interior, possibly one of the best colour combinations to be seen is on this stunning example of the iconic SL, a name that has been with us for some 65 years and that has been residing on the rear of some of some of the greatest motor cars Mercedes-Benz ever built. This example has recently been the subject of an extensive restoration with a new aluminium bonnet, new boot, wings, valances, doors, new chrome, four new tyres with refurbished Mexican hat alloy wheels, a brake overhaul, engine and gearbox service, new exhaust and many hard to find and expensive seals and rubbers . The car features a couple of tasteful additions, including later style alloy wheels and a rubber boot spoiler from the '80s variant along with body coloured chin spoiler with black lower lip. The car’s brightwork and paintwork shine in equal measure and it runs as it should, the automatic transmission dropping into gear nicely. The factory hard top is also present and correct as is the black mohair soft top which is in very good order. The car’s history file includes the V5C, owner’s manual, numerous old MOTs, old invoices which support the mileage of 114,000. With some cars just getting better looking with age the R107 Series Mercedes-Benz SL is definitely amongst them. Overshadowed for a long time by its graceful ‘Pagoda' predecessor, it's now becoming better appreciated for what it is - a beautifully built sports roadster that is totally dependable. To this day, no car door closes with a more reassuring ‘thunk' than a Mercedes SL, and everything about the car suggests solid engineering. Fast, comfortable and discreetly understated, the SL has a matchless ability to munch up the miles for year after year without ever seeming to falter. No wonder it remained in production, fundamentally unaltered, from 1971 until 1989 - the longest production run of any Mercedes car to date. Market behaviour suggests the R107 is good news at the moment, with strong demand and prices reflecting this as they chase after the earlier Pagoda series of SLs which achieve over £100k on a regular basis. Very well built, usable and great fun to drive, especially when fitted with a big lazy V8 as in this 3.5-litre version.
