Do not miss out on this opportunity and become the new owner of this timeless classic Mercedes convertible! This is a NO RESERVE auction.

Only 6,093 of this Mercedes-Benz convertible were produced in 1974. The R107 replaced the W113 (Pagode) in 1971 and was succeeded by the W126C in 1981 for the coupe models (SLC) and by the R129 in 1989 for the convertible models (SL).

This Mercedes starts instantly and idles nicely. It shifts smoothly through all gears and brakes properly. The interior is still in very neat (and original) state, also the dashboard is still intact which is unique for a car of 43 years. The soft top is still in fairly good condition. The car was repainted fairly recently and has very good paint. The previous owner replaced the exhaust in the past (from the manifold to the silencer). It comes with a new battery.

The car has some issues which need addressing: the bottom plates were repaired in the past but amateurish, to have it looking spic-and-span you should have new plates fitted. In addition, the hardtop has some dull parts.

The prices of these Mercedes convertibles are starting to follow the prices of the Pagode, certainly in this condition. So don't wait too long.
