1979 Mercedes-Benz SL 350 V8

This beautiful 1979 Mercedes SL 350 is in excellent condition and it was restored in 2018.

It has a huge amount of service history including its original service booklet with stamps up to 105k, lots of receipts dating back to when it was new and more recent ones, MOTs that date back to 1984 and we have a current V5 that’s at hand to be transferred over.

It drives beautifully with all the gears working as they should, it accelerates well and the brakes are all working well.

The speedometer/cluster got change in 2013 hence why the milage was changed to 82k and now currently it sits at 92k. So the correct mileage all backed up by its history is 116,000 miles from new.

The Mexican hat alloys have all been highly refurbished recently and all the tyres are in good condition.

The body work is in excellent condition – good floor pans, bulkhead, rear valence and the boot floor is all good. There is only some small bubbling on the rear boot lid – you can view more detailed photos of this on our website and below this description.

As you can see the interior is in excellent condition for its age but it does have some notorious cracking on the dashboard and the boot carpets have discoloured due to age

It comes with the factory hard top that’s in excellent condition.

The soft top is in good condition with only some age related marks and the rear plastic windows have just been replaced

Overall this is a beautiful example of an R107 with very few remaining in condition such as this.
