  • A really smart looking R107 SL in signal red (hell rot) paint with creme (beige?) MB-tex interior
  • Electric windows
  • Rear seats and fold-down parcel shelf; note that lap-belts are fitted and thus ideal for children
  • Mercedes over-mats
  • Black soft-top in good condition and clear Perspex windows
  • Sun-visors, vanity mirrors and lights
  • Front fog lamps
  • Factory hardtop in very good condition
  • Maintenance Booklet, Owner’s Manual and wallet
  • Original jack, warning triangle and wheel-wrench
  • Central locking and immobiliser fitted
  • Two sets of keys & alarm fobs

F958TLX is a strong driver on the road with good oil pressure (off the gauge at 3 bar+), low-normal temperature and slick gearbox in both Economy and Standard modes, positive steering and strong brakes which pull the car up nice and straight; all gauges and dash controls appear to work correctly

The bodywork is good with no signs of corrosion or damage, not even any small car-park ‘dings’, and also clean and tidy underneath (galvanised body). The paintwork is very good with a nice quality finish and deep shine, so too the chromework with just one small ‘split’ to the surface chrome finish on a front bumper. The alloys are generally good with little or no rim damage (easily refurbished for a top-class finish) and the car was fitted with new Avon ZV5s all round at the last service.

Overall a lovely, sensibly-priced Mercedes 300SL in the very attractive signal red and creme interior which should need nothing in the foreseeable future; be ready for summer touring in comfort and style or even for late winter use with the factory hardtop!

Price: SOLD
