The Mercedes-Benz R107 and C107 are sportscar which were produced by Mercedes-Benz from 1971 through 1989, being the second longest single series ever produced by the automaker, after the G-Class. They were sold under the SL (R107) and SLC (C107) model names as the 280 SL, 280 SLC, 300 SL, 350SL, 350SLC, 380SL, 380SLC, 420SL, 450SL, 450SLC, 450SLC 5.0, 500SL, 500SLC and 560 SL.
The final 500 SL was produced on 4 August 1989. The SL (R107) variant was a 2-seat convertible/roadster with standard soft-top, with optional winter hardtop and only rarely ordered bench for the tiny rear cabin..
The Mercedes in question was purchased 5 years ago and has lived a garaged life in Hermanus. The current owner works abroad so the vehicle was only used on return visits back to SA. In the 5 years of ownership the front suspension has been done. The Seat covers and carpets were imported and fitted about 10 months ago. As well as a new soft top was fitted 2 years ago. She has partial Service History and with a cream interior complemented by the silver exterior she sure has the sleek and elegant look. The car has been resprayed during its life but the paint needs some TLC. The new soft top is in great condition and the tyres holds great mileage ahead.
