1984 280sl R107series.


Specification: 1984 280sl R107series.

Details:

This superb 280 SL Roadster was supplied new to the UK in May 1984.  It is presented in a stunning colour combination of Lapis Blue metallic with matching factory hard top, navy blue soft top and complemented with navy check sports cloth interior. The milage is 92164 and comes with a good service history with fifteen stamps to the original service book with 90% of them being carried out at Mercedes-Benz main agents. The car has just been serviced and a recent exhaust system was fitted. The car is in excellent condition throughout. The bulkhead has been inspected and found to be in excellent order with no signs of corrosion and has been wax-oiled to preserve its integrity. All other 107 usual problem areas have also been checked and found to be in superb condition leading one to believe that the car has been minded very well if not garaged for most of its life, the service history includes all the old MoT test certificates dating back to 1991 at 54,000 miles. This example is reliable, driving superbly and is a real head turner.
Factory options fitted:
Headlamp wash/wipe.
Electric windows.
Electric passenger mirror.
Fire extinguisher mounted in passenger footwell.
Wallnut dash facia.
Summary:
This is a fantastic example of the R107.  The Coachwork is stunning in this colour and the interior is unmarked. The engine and box are silky smooth as you would expect from the twin overhead cam engine that many feel was one of the best options and simply bullet proof. It is a joy to drive and we hope the next owner will mind it as well as the previous.
