The Classic Car Gallery is proud to offer this stunning 1972 Mercedes-Benz r107 Roadster. Produced in July 1971, #137 is one of the earliest known of the R107 cars. She is amazingly original and has only 106,500 miles. 1971 was the first year of the R107 body style; a car that went on to become one of the most venerable and beloved cars of all time, and #137 was built in July of 1971! This car checks all of the boxes for collectability. Early 107 bodied cars are becoming very collectible; the lack of the american spec 5 mph bumpers and power sapping emission control systems gave these cars better performance then the later cars, while giving a much more attractive look. The car is one of the earliest production R107 cars in existence. These early cars has one more rare and desirable feature; the car has the 4.5 liter V8 that hiding under the hood. Even though the car is badged as a 350sl, these early American market cars are blessed with the bigger and more powerful 4.5 liter engine. This car is clad in her original Dark Olive Green (code 291- Dunkeloliv as verified by its original data card), has deep shine and great luster. Benefitting from a respray, the car is stunning.

The Mercedes-Benz R129 models were produced from 1989 through to 2001 and sold under the SL-Class model names. The R129 replaced the R107 SL-Class in 1989 and was subsequently replaced by the R230 in 2001. The R129 was based on the shortened floorpan of the Mercedes-Benz W124 saloon and featured many innovative details for the time. The R129 came to public attention in 1991 when Diana, Princess of Wales, sold her Jaguar XJS to lease a J-registration, metallic-red 500 SL, becoming the first member of the Royal Family to use a foreign car. This controversy sparked a media storm as it was questioned whether a member of British Royalty should drive a foreign car. The fifth generation of the legendary SL series, made by Mercedes-Benz, was known as the R230. It featured a fully retractable hardtop that was marketed as the Vario Roof- a first for the SL class although it had been available on the smaller SLK model since 1997. Supplied new to Mr. Dennis Senior of Henley-on-Thames by Motorworld of Oxford in 1979, this very collectable, two-owner, 350 SL has covered 59,000 miles from new and is presented in Navy Blue with a contrasting cream interior.
