THE SALEWe have consigned this iconic classic 1987 Mercedes 420 SL in a classy Champagne finish.***This car is for sale at £13,795 all inc. as a private sale.***If you're interested in the car then please get in touch with us directly to negotiate a deal.You can visit the link below to see over 300 images and videos of this special car and also watch an interview with the owner:https://www.tradeclassics.com/auctions/mercedes/1987-mercedes-420-sl/OUR CLIENTDev really does love the Mercedes. In the Meet the Owner video he talks about the smooth ride, soft-top and chrome platings the car possesses. He has owned this fine example for almost 4 years taking great care of it throughout his ownership.During his time with the car Dev has given great care to it. He used the vehicle in dry months (May to October) and has run up 1,000 miles a year in it. He loved going to the pub with its soft top down and his sunglasses on.Dev is now retired and has just recently left his restaurant business and will be spending more time in Cyprus hence he will have to sell his beloved 420 SL. He wants the new owner to have a passion for these iconic classics so they can care for it as much as he has and perhaps do minor repairs to it.The main reason for me to sell the car is that I have retired from my restaurant business and will be spending more time in Cyprus now hence little time left to spend on my much loved Mercedes SLTHE EXTERIORThis iconic classic is sprayed with the Champagne Gold that youre prone to see with Mercedes. All credit goes to Dev who commissioned a paint restoration on it. Since Devs owned it he has installed a brand new soft top which he absolutely loves. Please watch the exterior review video as Glyn our consigner does a great job in reviewing the car.Wheels & TyresThe car is fitted with 205/65/15 tyres that are one year old with excellent tread. The original wheels are still looking in good condition.BodyworkAs we worked our way around the vehicle we were really impressed with the condition. There is slight defects at the edges of the front chrome plating and a little surface rust on some underside areas. Please watch our extensive review of the exterior in the video that details each body panel meticulously.PaintThe Champagne Gold looks stunning on a sunny day it will look even better. As we work our way around the car we see the paintwork to be in excellent condition. There is a slight defect on the nearside rear wheel arch please see all photos.Glass and TrimAll trim is in good condition upon our visit. We would recommend the new owner to check the seal by the offside A-pillar as this could do with replacing.THE INTERIORAs you make your way to the interior of the car you really start to get that eighties style around you. Anyone who loves R107s will love the interior presented with brown leather and the brazil check cloth. Please read below detailing the condition of each part as well as looking at all the photos and videos.Seats and CarpetsThe original seats are in a condition that you would expect of a car this age. There is a rip in the leather of the drivers seat and wear to the pattern. We would recommend the owner repairing the seats if they desire excellent condition.DashboardAll gauges look to be original and in good condition. The overall dashboard is finished in black with wooden trim descending to the gearbox.Steering Wheel / Gear StickBoth are in good condition with no issues. The handbrake module has a crack which we would recommend getting remedied.MECHANICSAs we go around Devs local area in Leicester we were really impressed with the smooth ride this 420 SL has to offer. The gearbox is a 4-speed automatic allowing you to leisurely cruise through the British roads. The car is fitted with the original 4.2L V8 engine some examples around the world are known to have completed in excess of one million miles.Engine and GearboxPlease watch the On the Road video to see the car start first time from cold (6 Degrees). The gears change without any rejection or unwanted noise.Suspension and BrakesThe brakes are responsive as you would expect after Dev has replaced the brake pads. The suspension works very well, a smooth drive.The DriveDev mentions the power steering works well but there is a little play when centred. Glyn was impressed with the ride.Electrics and OtherAll electrics and gauges on the dashboard and lights work as expected apart from the clock and Dev mentions there is a defect with the heater motor that will need to be repaired. The horn also does not work. It is fitted with a DAB/USB modern
