UK-supplied, right-hand drive Mercedes-Benz 280 SL showing just 92,401 miles from newDelightfully presented ingleaming Signal Red paintwork and matching factory hard-topSuperb interior with black half-leather and MB-Tex cloth insertsSmooth, fuel-injected straight-six producing 182bhp and 176lb/ft. 4-speed automatic boxAccompanied by an interesting history file with the original handbooks and service recordsOffered here is a rather lovely,UK-supplied, right-hand drive R107 280 SL with 92,402 miles showing at the time of cataloguing. Specified in Signal Red paintwork with black half-leather and MB-Tex cloth centres, a timeless and well-suited combination for this model. First registered on 06th April just in time for Spring 1983 and supplied new to a local business owner by Mercedes-Benz agents Alexandra Motors Ltd. ofGrimsby.Today, this example looks almost as good as the day it left the Mercedes-Benz garage back in 1983, the Signal Red paint retains a deep gloss finish, the brightwork all presents very well, the 'Mexican Hat' alloys appear in good shape and the interior only shows thesmall amount of wear that you mightexpecton a 37-year old classicat this mileage. The build quality of Mercedes-Benz from this era was a benchmark to all other prestige manufacturers and this particular SL has clearly been very well looked after over the years. The car is accompanied by a box file containing itsoriginal book-pack and most importantly the original maintenance booklet with supporting service records up to 88,762 miles. Importantly, this example also retains its matching colour coded factory hard-top which also presents in fine order.The history file also contains a number of supporting invoices for regular maintenance over the years, the aforementioned Mercedes-Benz book pack with original Data Card, current up-to-date V5c, a number of old MOT Certificates and other supporting documents.Good, well looked after examplesof the 107 are becoming increasingly difficult to source and, offered at a very realistic guide, we believe that WWB 600Yrepresents superb value for money and, at the very least, will offer its new owner many years of enjoyable motoring.You can now book a one-to-one appointment (up to one hour) to view this lot at our central location Monday to Friday between Thursday 29th October - 12th November.
