1987 Mercedes Benz 420SL

This wonderful late model 420SL is in completely original unmarked order throughout and has covered 40,000 summer miles in the hands of two owners, the first of whom owned the car until 2018. 

The first owner ordered the car from his local Mercedes dealer, Caffyns in Eastbourne, in October 1986 to replace his earlier 380SL model he had similarly bought new in 1986. This is all detailed in the original order form on file. He finally took delivery of his new model in April 1987 as noted in the original stamped service book. The car was then perfectly looked after and only driven on dry summer roads as noted in a letter from this first owner in the history file. It was returned to the supplying dealer for servicing as required and as stamped in the service book and detailed in invoicing with eighteen services completed in the 40,000 miles covered up to 2018.

In 2018 a private collector with a love of the Mercedes marque discovered the car and bought it immediately upon viewing it. It has remained in his small but perfectly formed private collection to date in a dehumidified garage and has covered very few miles, again on dry summer roads only. Following purchase, he had the car fully inspected by The SL Shop and any areas requiring attention were dealt with as detailed in invoicing on file. Last year the car was serviced by his local Mercedes Benz dealership in Wakefield. 

So here we have a factory fresh facelift SL with the desirable V8 engine, just two owners and a full Mercedes service history. It comes with a complete book pack in the correct wallet, all MOT certificates, service invoices, correspondence, toolkit, keys, Blaupunkt stereo with manuals. Even the original number plates, tax disc holder and key fobs remain! As good as it gets really.
