This vehicle is being auctioned , closing at 8:45pm on the 15th OF January.https://www.trademe.co.nz/a/motors/cars/mercedes-benz/sl/listing/3943078471 . With a new Year upon us and New Year resolutions made, our client has instructed us to Sell, Sell, Sell !!! This fantastic Mercedes SL is now being offered in a $1 Reserve Auction!!!
Initially, the first 300 SL was a racing sports car built in 1952 with no intention of developing a street version. Replacing both 300 SL and 190 SL the 230 SL was introduced in 1963 with a distinctive concave roofline that earned the nickname “Pagoda “.
In 1971, the R107 was introduced with new design language and safety features that spread to the subsequent Mercedes-Benz models. For the first time the Mercedes V8 engine was fitted to the SL-Class. With the production from 1971 to 1989, R107 was one of the longest produced vehicles from Mercedes-Benz.
This unmistakably 70’s design has become iconic in TV Programmes and Movies around the world. As the Pagoda has done great things value-wise over the last few years, the SL 450 is tipped to be the next model to move. This car will represent fantastic buying at a level that allows for improvements to be made to the car without overcapitalising. As seen in photos the dash has cracking, and there are paint imperfections in a number of places. However over all this is a solid, presentable and very usable classic.
