The SLs of this era (the 107 chassis) really established themselves as an icon of quality and success in on the Continent as well as the Americas. Unlike the previous SL range, these cars were rugged and durable and could accumulate high mileage and still remain reliable with just the most basic of care The first of the generation was the 350SL, a car that is now beginning beginning to occupy a strong place in the hearts of Mercedes-Benz collectors, it was the original pure design with no emissions equipment to speak of, small plated bumpers and manual windows.
Being lighter and unrestricted from an emissions standpoint meant the cars were lively performers as well as quiet and comfortable touring cars.
This lovely example in metallic peacock blue with matching blue interior and dark blue hood, is presented in excellent order throughout according to the vendor. The car comes with full history from delivery mileage to the present day and is showing 36,600 miles from new. It also comes with its factory hard top and the cloth/leather interior is in good condition. This car comes with a MOT which expires in November 2016 and is currently SORN. A fine example of this iconic and timeless open top sports tourer with its wonderful V8 engine, not to be missed.
