1983 Mercedes Benz 500 SL R107 in Thistle Green Metallic with a Cyprus Green metallic hardtop, Dark brown soft-top, and Beige upholstery. Only 18700 miles from new. This cracking 500 SL has had just three owners from new and an exceptionally original example. Chassis number 002401 was supplied new by Regent Garage Gwynedd to local resident G. Thomas Esq on January 1st 1983. Befitting its status as Mercedes Benz's flagship sports car at the time the 500 SLs impressive specification encompassed a limited slip differential, cruise control, paint coat preservation, heat absorbing glass, headlamp wash / wipe, ABS brakes and rear seats. Sold by Mr Thomas to its next owner on June 1st 1995 for the princely sum of £27500 'NST369Y' its warranted to have covered just 18700 miles from new.
The engine bay has been sprayed with protective wax which has helped preserve various factory stickers on the 5 litre V8, while more Mercedes Benz stickers are visible on the exhaust silencer and one of the front brake callipers etc. This car has obviously not seen a wet road, and is beatifully preserved. A 'Regents Garage' sticker adorns the hardtops rear window and the unused spare wheel still wears its original Michelin XWX tyre. Obviously, much loved the 500 SLs appearance and condition belie it's thirty-seven years. It is amazing to think 2021 marks fifty years since the introduction of the R107 SL and there can be very few surviving UK supplied 500 SLs which are as original as NST369Y. This car comes with a V5, Mercedes Benz data card, history file and tool kit. The car is unmarked inside & out & is literally like it left the showroom. It is the best example we have ever seen. Turn the ignition key and the five litre V8 fires instantly and upon test drive the engine pulls through the rev range and acceleration is brisk with the four-speed automatic gearchange being effortlessly smooth. A real pleasure to drive. If the seventies styling ticks your box and you want a classic that combines a stylish driving experience with the ability to deliver you to your destination unflustered then this beautiful SL could well be for you.
