"The car runs fine in the engine and gearbox. The paint is sun-bleached and the clearcoat has partially released on the roof / hardtop. For the most original paint. No rust and nice overall impression."

"The car runs fine in the engine and gearbox. The paint is sun-bleached and the clearcoat has partially released on the roof / hardtop. For the most original paint. No rust and nice overall impression."


The car was sold new in San Diego in 1986 and has had owners there and in Palm Springs, until it came to Sweden in the spring of 2020. Nicely well-kept car, in intact original condition. Original paint all around, but hood and tailgate repainted in Sweden due to clear paint release. Whole and nice interior. The original convertible top has a couple of damages (see photos). Original rims with good tires. As the car hasbeen in a dry climate, it has never had any rust.

Facts about the model

Modellserien R 107 har fått smeknamnet "Dallas-Moppe" eftersom bilen spelade en huvudroll i TV serien Dallas. Serien sändes på 1980 och 1990-talen i sammanlagt 357 avsnitt och blev en megasuccé. En av seriens mest kända kända rollfigurer hette Pamela Ewing- som spelades av Victoria Pricipal - och denna skönhet gled omkring i en 450 SL. Just beteckningen SL stod från början för "Sport und Leich" (sportig och lätt). Men den beteckningen passar mindre bra på
R 107-serien som ju är allt annat än sportig och lätt. Men likafullt en läcker och stilig klassiker med fantastisk komfort. En riktig "glidare" som andas hög status.

  • At this auction, many vehicles have been included in car collections and have been stored (mothballed) for a long time. For this reason, they are described from a collector's perspective and may need technical reviews and maintenance service - oil, battery replacement, new tires, brake review, etc. - before they can be used. .
  • During the auction days information about a vehicle may be updated up to the day before the auction ends.
