"A well-maintained car with a low chassis number makes for an interesting collectors car.
There's a lot of documentation, and as far as I can tell, it doesn't require any fixes and can be enjoyed this summer."

This car was sold new in Sweden in 1971, and it is the first year model in a nice condition that is rare to see early models. The car was repainted in its original color in the 1980s by owners who took good care of it and only used it occasionally.
The car was purchased by the current owner's uncle in 1989, and he only drove it during the summer months.
The current owner purchased the car from his uncle in 2014 and has only driven 1000 km per summer since then. In 2017, he decided to have the seats reupholstered after they had become a little worn out. The car comes with a hardtop that matches the color of the car.

Facts about the model

Mercedes-Benz R107 är en gran turismo, tillverkad av den tyska biltillverkaren Mercedes-Benz mellan 1971 och 1989.

350 SL presenterades i Genève i april 1971. Den konstruerades vid en tidpunkt då skärpta säkerhetskrav från de amerikanska myndigheterna förväntades ta död på den öppna bilen. Men Mercedes konstruktörer byggde en så kraftig vagn att den klarade lagkraven. Bilen kallades internt "Der Panzerwagen" på grund av den kraftiga konstruktionen. Medaljens baksida var den höga vikten och det krävdes numera en V8-motor för att uppnå företrädaren 280 SL:s prestanda. I mars 1973 introducerades USA-motorn på den europeiska marknaden i 450 SL. Anledningen var ökade avgasreningskrav även här och Mercedes motorer hörde till dem som tappade mest effekt när de utrustades med dåtidens reningsteknik. I oljekrisens spår kom den sexcylindriga 280 SL i juli 1974.

I mars 1980 introducerades nya V8:or från den nya S-klassen och i september 1985 gjordes den sista uppdateringen av Mercedes allra äldsta modell där bland annat 280 SL ersattes med 300 SL som fick en treliters sexcylindrig motor från den nya motorfamiljen M103. I övrigt gjordes ett antal tekniska chassieuppgraderingar som bland annat innebar 15" hjul och större bromsar.

107:an pensionerades slutligen 1989 efter en produktionscykel på 18 år och 237 287 stycken tillverkade bilar.
