Do not miss out on this opportunity and become the new owner of this timeless classic Mercedes convertible! This is a NO RESERVE AUCTION.

This Mercedes-Benz convertible only had a production of 4,778 units in 1972, the second year of production. In 1970, the Mercedes W107 was introduced as successor to the Mercedes Pagode (W113). The production started in April 1971 and the only ones available were the 350SL (BM 107.043) and 350SLC (BM 107.023) with a 3.5L V8 (M116), electronic fuel injection (Bosch D-jetronic) and a manual 4-speed or an optional 3-speed automatic transmission. The engine produced a power output of 200 hp.

Only 15,304 units were produced of this Mercedes 350SL making this car a true collectible.

This Mercedes is in good condition. The car starts immediately and idles nicely, shifts smoothly and powerfully through all gears and brakes properly. The car features the original vinyl leather and original matching numbers engine. In addition, the car was repainted by its past owner and this still looks very fresh. Also, the softtop has recently been replaced. The car also comes with all the original booklets and even the original build sheets (unique). Also, the original Becker Grand Prix Stereo is still present and even the original plastic mat still lies in the trunk.

The prices of these Mercedes Convertibles are starting to follow the prices of the Pagode, so don’t wait too long. Certainly in this state and with only 77125 miles on the counter these ‘early' R107 SLs with small bumpers are increasingly difficult to find.
