Description

The SLs of this era (the 107 chassis) really established themselves as an icon of quality and success 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 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. Following the discontinuation of the SLC in September 1981, the 107 series continued initially as the 280, 380 and 500 SL. At this time, the V8 engines were re-tuned for greater efficiency.

This lovely example is presented in black with black interior is presented in good condition throughout and also comes with its factory hard top. These timeless classic Mercedes Sports were built to last and needed very little in the way of maintenance. This model comes with the highly desirable V8 which provides effortless acceleration and touring ability matched by very few of that generation or indeed of today’s.
