The Mercedes-Benz SL series started out as the top of the line sports luxury tourer that offered both performance and comfort. The third generation SL was called the R107 chassis and is one of the most recognizable Mercedes of all time. Produced from 1971 all the way to 1989, the R107 lived a long and cherished life. The United States was an extremely popular market for the personal luxury coupe and almost ⅔ of all SL's were sold here. Unfortunately, US regulations mandated big bumpers, low power headlights, and emission choked engines. While not as quick or pretty as their European cousins, the US market SL's still represented the cream of the personal luxury car crop.

This great little roadster offered here was sold new out of Yorkville NY to Richard Davis back in 1981. The car remained in his custody till 2000 and was sold to the 2nd owner in Florida and remained in their possession till we recently acquired the vehicle. Vehicle was optioned new with the upgraded Astral Silver Metallic paint and the blue leather interior. Vehicle remains in it stock form outside of the upgraded stereo deck that was replaced a few years ago. Standard features include cruise control, auto temp, 4spd automatic, alloy wheels, rear defrost, hard top and soft top and much more.

This vehicle has enjoyed a open checkbook its entire life and the car showcases the care and love over the past 27 years of its life. Vehicle comes with all factory owners' manuals, 3 keys, original hard top, a huge file full of yearly maintenance and service records, clean CarFax and the original window sticker ($40,632.00). This car did have the timing chain, valve cover gaskets, crankshaft main bearing seal, both engine mounts and power steering pump all replaced.

These cars are the next up and coming vintage Mercedes convertibles…they are good looking, enjoyable to drive and still have the iconic looks. We have seen double digit price increases over the past few years on these and see no end in sight!
