Mercedes 107SL was introduced in 1971 and continued along the same basic design principals as the 113 Pagoda, but was a little bigger and wider than the Pagoda. The disappearing hood mechanism, with the removable hard-top, remained and the engine options now included the 3.5 litre V8, which powered the new saloon range. The 107SL was a hugely successful model, which remained in production for 18 years, largely unchanged. Engine options expanded to include a 2.8 and in 1986 a 3.0 straight six and V8's, which expanded to 5.6 litre by the end of the production run in 1989, when it was replaced by the new 129SL.
This car was first registered in Texas and only used very occasionally. When the first owner sold it in 2002 it had covered only 13,200 miles, and when the vendor purchased the car in Atlanta it had covered 35,000 miles, and there are documents supporting these mileages. Since importation to the UK in 2017 the following work has been carried out: new lights to comply with UK law, new stainless steel exhaust, new tyres, new rubber seals and hoses, new steering joints, new rear drive shafts, only necessary because of split boots. To the vendors knowledge there is no rust, which would most likely not be the case if it was a UK car. The car is complete with original books and records. The car drives very well with no known issues.
