The Mercedes R107 SL was introduced in 1971 and continued along the same basic design principals as the 113 Pagoda, but was a little bigger and a little bit wider. 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 R107 SL 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 1987 Mercedes 300 SL is presented in white with grey leather interior. The car has had 4 former keepers, with the vendor owning the car since 2018. The vendor states that the white paint looks good, but there are a some areas of rust. The car comes with a hardtop. The inside and leather seats are in good condition, which indicates that the low mileage is correct. The vendor states that it runs well but has had little use since he bought it.
The car has an MOT until August 2021 with no advisories.
