1980 MERCEDES BENZ 350SL R107. LOW 79,000 MILEAGE. DRIVES GREAT. NICE COLOUR. GREAT PRICE £14,995.
This is a very good and original Mercedes R107 350SL that was first registered 11th April 1980. The car is now 37 years old and only 3 years away from becoming road tax and MOT exempt. With the price of the earlier Pagoda roof Mercs going through the roof the later 107 models are also rising fast so get one whilst they are still affordable. This particular car is a SL350 model which is arguably the model to have. It has the 3.5 V8 engine that gives you both performance and reasonable economy. With 195bhp and 127mph capabilities it is no slouch and the engine and automatic gearbox perform very well. The power steering is nicely weighted and the car drives very nicely on the road. The car comes with no less than 20 old MOT's that chart the mileage history of the car and the current very low mileage of 79,000 miles which is less than 2000 miles per year from new. The last owner had the car for 11 years but kept it off the road for most of that time doing only 10,000 miles in all that time. In 2014 he sold the car to the current owner who enthusiastically set about recommissioning the car to its current condition. He had the car repainted in the original shade of red, had the wheels refurbished, new tyres all round. The mechanical side was looked after by a local Mercedes specialist and finally a recent service. A long MOT with no advisories runs till July 2018. The car retains its original book pack and the service book shows 11 stamps. The car come with a matching colour hard top. The private plate shown in the pictures is not staying on the car and will be replaced with the correct age related plate.
