Mercedes-Benz 350 SL 1980 (W) Red
This lovely R107 Series Mercedes 350SL Automatic Convertible was supplied new by Lancaster in Colchester and was first registered on 1st August 1980.
It is finished in its original colour scheme of Signal Red with a Beige cloth interior, Beige carpets, Black Mohair Soft Top, Factory Hard Top in Red, 3499cc V8 Fuel injected Engine, 3 Speed Automatic Transmission, Power Assisted Steering, manual Windows, Stereo/CD Player, front fog lights and refurbished 14" 'Mexican Hat' Alloy Wheels.
It has been owned by a Mr John Bidwell from Lowestoft from 1990 until 2020 and was he only covered 5,000 miles in the car during his 30 years of ownership!
He had a complete engine rebuild carried out @ 73,327 miles back in August 1998 including a full bulkhead restoration and other works at the same time costing £10,183. The car was MOT'd every year from 1990 until 1998 covering just 4,000 miles when it was put into storage until 2007.
Since 2007 it has been MOT'd every year up until 2016, but only covering a further 1,000 miles during this time and not used for the last 3 years and the car has now only covered a genuine 74,300 miles from new!
During his ownership Mr Bidwell spent in excess of £17,000 on the car having various servicing, mechanical works and restoration works carried out and this car really is in beautiful condition throughout and it drives superbly and has only covered just over 1,000 miles on the completely rebuilt engine!
There is a a good history file with the car including all MOT certificates from 1990 up to 2016, invoices for all the works he has had carried out + its original maintenance book and MB Data Card record and the car is clear on all HPi registers including the National Mileage register.
We are just preparing the car for sale and will be giving it a new MOT and lubrication service before sale and it will come with our own 6 Month Mechanical Warranty.
