1978 Mercedes 350 SL Auto 132,288 (Not Warranted) £12,500.00 + buyers premium


Beautiful 350SL Mercedes, up for sale due to owner reducing his classic car collection.
It has been owned for the last 10 years by the owner. The soft top has been replaced using a mohair soft top. This car has been regularly serviced regardless of cost. The interior is in superb condition and includes a very expensive after market steering wheel. This Mercedes is amazing to drive, faultless!! This is an appreciating classic, that will only increase in value – better value than money in the bank and better to look at!!

Auctioneers notes: This iconic R107 350 SL is presented in truly excellent condition.  The vendor has owned her since 1.3.14 and, of course. She is now tax exempt. The folder has new and old V5C’s plus a spare key. The history file contains MOT history from 2011 and recent invoices from Mercedes Benz main agents plus an invoice from Keysham Auto Engineers – a renowned restoration company – for a complete repaint.15 lits of paint were used, the work was carried out in 2014 and we are told by the restoration company that she was taken back to the bare metal, and the underside has been wax-oiled.  We think this superb car, by the way the interior is excellent, all leather front and rear, is outstanding.  Please come and view. This car has only come to market as the vendor is 85 years young.
