Retford, Nottinghamshire  

Mercedes-Benz 380SL (R107) 87,000 miles Original Cream leather seats and interior with Walnut console. Dark Brown Fabric Soft Top which was renewed in 2006. This car also comes with a hardtop which has been fully restored when the restoration took place. A superb example of this model from 1985. The timeless combination of the perforated stich Cream Leather seats and the classic interior gives this car an incredibly luxurious look. The powerful 3.8 litre V8 engine coupled with the stylish and spotless interior make this a car to be desired. Finding an early V8 car in this sort of condition is getting extremely hard. The car itself has been subject to a very high-quality restoration in 2005 by a very well-known classic car restoration company in Retford Nottinghamshire (Barry Roberts) The attention to detail is something to be admired and can be seen in some of the photographs provided. If a potential buyer would like to see in more detail the restoration completed there are over 100 pictures and numerous videos of the restoration work that was undertaken. The private registration plate which would not suit everybody!!!! B20 KOP will be removed from the car prior to sale. The previous registration mark is B755 KUX. A delightful opportunity to acquire an SL that is an absolute prime example of a car that has been restored to a very high standard. When I purchased the vehicle in 2004 it had been neglected by its previous owners and was in a very poor state of repair. This vehicle has undergone a full transformation and been taken right back to the original steel to locate all areas of rust which have been cut out and restored professionally. The vehicle has been fully inspected prior to priming and has been completed to a very high standard. To fully appreciate the restoration, you would need to see the pictures that were taken throughout this process. The attention to detail is second to none and the painstaking work that the car has seen is none other than fantastic. The car is dream to drive and certainly a ‘head turner.’ The engine fires at the first turn of the key, the car feels responsive and ready. and has no mechanical issues. It has flown through all MOT’s and services and continues to drive well. There is a file full of paperwork relating to the car and this will be passed on to the new owner. The next owner of this car will benefit from the time and dedication shown over the last 21 years. Due to ill health I can no longer get the use out of the vehicle that I would like to This SL is longing for a new owner to take the wheel and aim for the horizon, a new owner with which to share many more miles of happy driving.
