This is quite a rare find. This 1976 R107 350SL was supplied when new in the Netherlands. Besides this fact, it also happens to have the most delightful colour scheme. The buyer specified a “735 Astralsilber” external finish with a red leather interior and the optional seating in the rear. This car has only acquired 160,000 km of experience ad is still in great condition.

The bodywork has been meticulously looked after over the years and still finds itself in an original and fine condition. The silver finish has been resprayed for cosmetic reasons and bar a few light blemishes also is still fine. The easy to operate hood closes securely. The chrome bumpers, hubcaps and other brightwork are all in good condition.

The interior colour forms a striking contrast with the silver-grey paintwork. The original red leather of the seats has been extremely well looked after. The seats not only look good, importantly they are very comfortable too. A fine detail is the optional fitted rear seats. Whilst this option was not very popular back then, it does give you to opportunity to treat a couple of (small) children to an unforgettable ride. The original carpets and dashboard have similarly been kept in exemplary fashion, with all controls in correct working order.

Mechanically the car has been splendidly maintained over the years. The 3.5 litre V8 engine always supplies more than ample power. It has 3-speed automatic transmission. Both suspension and brakes are in great shape, making driving this 350SL a pure joy. The comfort and simplicity this car can devour the miles at speed and just as easily lend itself to relaxed touring is still amazing.

This is a very fine Mercedes-Benz 350SL in good condition with a striking finish.
