Description for Mercedes-Benz SL-Class 1978

For Sale is a nice 1978 Mercedes-Benz 350SL R107It's a euro which has been in the restoration process for 3 years now bringing it up to show quality appearance. This production year only produced 743 examples and almost all of these stayed in Germany. The paint was done this year and many man hours put fourth to making this panzerwagen drop dead gorgeous! No rust. California car living in a garage. I have also installed an aftermarket radio and speakers which work well as does the factory antenna. Body and tuning done by the factory in Germany. Lorinser Classics. BBS Mahle wheels are paint matched and period correct! Motor is verified M116(very hard to find!) with high compression and CIS fuel injection. 3-speed automatic. Passes California emissions with flying colors. Interior was the last thing on my list which isn't finished. The carpet is not as black as it should be. The seats are genuine Recarro with sport bolsters as such built for BMW E24 M6 and E28 M5. No tears or rips on the seats but they need conditioning. The steering wheel is AMG/Lorinser and needs some attention as the sun killed the top portion. Dash is cracked and wears a dash cap. The canvas top has not been taken out in 20+ years I would guess so the condition is unknown. I have factory radio Becker GT and manuals with recent paperwork detailing the paint job and OEM trim pieces all ordered through MB. unlike the UNRELIABLE 380SL's this model 350SL will outlive them all. Email me with Questions I 'll be happy to answer. Ladies and Gents. Reserve has been lowered!!! Thanks for looking!
