The SL of the 1970s undoubtedly represents an icon of the SL history of Mercedes-Benz: The R 107, which came onto the market in 1971. With its long production period, which lasted a full 18 years, the 107 is the longest series built by Mercedes-Benz. This led to a great variety of models and at the same time to an incredible number of over 237,000 roadsters. In addition, it is the first SL which no longer gets the "W" for wagon as type code, but an "R" for roadster. Safety continues to be a top priority in the 3rd generation of the Mercedes-Benz SL:The
belt whips disappear, ABS is available from 1980, even a driver airbag is optionally available from 1982.

According to the seller, the previous owner had driven this 300 SL regularly and only in good weather and always put it in a specially ventilated garage afterwards. The so-called Matching Numbers are no longer available, a rich history is however given after consultation with the salesman with this 300 SL.
Optically above all the color tone of this Mercedes Benz R 107 sticks out to the viewer: "signal red" (color code 568) is called the lacquer color of the Roadster. According to the seller's statements, no inconsistencies on the body or rough damages can be found - moreover, all add-on parts such as trim elements and bumpers are in a well-preserved condition. The seller lets mention that the soft top - although extremely rarely used - shows its age and the side windows have cracks. According to the master saddler, who looked at this soft top, it is in original condition and since the vehicle will probably not be moved in the rain, it would be a pity to replace this Mercedes-Benz original soft top, which is actually in a healthy condition considering its age.
The further optical appearance is provided by so-called Mercedes-Benz "Gullideckel" aluminum rims, on which Nexen tires are mounted
Neither in the area of the brake system nor at the chassis of this car deficits can be enumerated after consultation with the salesman.
