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 450 SL was produced until 1980. Starting in 1980, US cars were equipped with lambda control, which varied the air/fuel mixture based on feedback from an oxygen sensor. The smaller engined 380 SL replaced the 450SL from 1981 to 1985. The Malaise era 380 SL was the least powerful of the US market R107 roadsters.

 

The Mercedes in question was purchased from a collector in Stanford in 2017. The current owner resides in Europe so the vehicle was only used on holiday visits back to SA. She  has a Full Service History with an original beige interior complemented by the silver exterior.  The car has been resprayed during its life but the paint presents well. The like new soft top is in great condition and the front tyres were replaced in 2021 which holds great mileage ahead. The brake system on the vehicle was overhauled in 2021 which gives you great confidence when hitting the highways (Invoices are available).
