The Mercedes-Benz R107 and C107 models were manufactured from 1971 through to 1989 and were the longest running production models after the G-Class. They were sold under the SL and SLC model names as the 280SL, 280SLC, 300SL, etc. up to the 560SL. This 300 SL variant manufactured in 1989 has come to market from single ownership plus one. Showing a genuine reading of 5,500 miles on the clock, this family owned German classic is in absolute time warp condition and surely the most original 300 SL to be offered for sale in many years . To say the car is perfect is an understatement, this example is truly breathtaking in every respect, a potential concours candidate. Mechanically as good as it is cosmetically. A once in a lifetime opportunity to acquire the best and most original Mercedes 300SL on the Market .
