1988 Blue Mercedes-Benz 300SL

Oxfordshire, United Kingdom


1988 Mercedes 300SL R107 Series Auto - Father and Son owned, full MB dealer history every year, exceptional throughout

Presented in Diamond Blue metallic with Royal Blue leather and complemented by a dark blue fabric soft top, this R107 is in impeccable condition and comes with a full Mercedes Benz main dealer history with annual stamps from 1988.
With just the one family ownership, the father purchased the car new from Hughes of Beaconsfield in 1988 and then passed it to his son in 2009. Supplied with an astonishing service history by just two main dealers from new, Hughes of Beaconsfield and Mercedes Benz Oxford, with maintenance stamps each and every year since 1988 and with just 85,000 miles covered, this R107 has wanted for absolutely nothing.
Furthermore, listed for sale this summer at arguably the UK’s leading SL specialist based in the Midlands, the car was treated to some light restoration to sills and arches, a complete overhaul of the brake system including new calipers, pads and discs, and a full engine compression test and service. All this was at significant expense and in order that said SL specialist could confidently sell the vehicle with their own unrivalled 2 year no quibble warranty and 3 year bulkhead guarantee.
Equipped with remote alarm and central locking system, rear seat option, a hard top, its cover and stand, and wind deflector, we have great pleasure as friends of the owner in being able to offer this 300SL for sale.
Finished in almost certainly the classiest colour combination, with an exemplary service history and single family provenance, and with every MOT certificate present with the latest to October 2020, and taking into account the unrivalled standard this car has been prepared to, this R107 is a compelling example of surely the 1980’s most iconic automobile.
