1972 Mercedes-Benz 350SL R107 Roadster Production number 137 !!!!!!! Here is the chance to own one of the most beautiful roadsters and history changing models that Mercedes-Benz ever made -1972 Mercedes Benz 350SL R107 Roadster!!! What makes this particular 350SL stand out from the rest is that this Mercedes was one of the VERY FIRST R107 cars built!! It was born in July of 1971 as a 1972 model!!! It is a production number 137 which makes it one of the first R107 Mercedes that rolled of the production line and offered for sale. right after production of famous W113 Pagoda ceased. making it a great piece of Mercedes-Benz SL History!!!! When you think about it. about first 50-60 cars were destroyed as they were used for crash testing and various research and development. some cars were given to very important MB people and customers. so being production number 137. it is one of the first R107 SL’s that was ever offered for sale to public!!! You definitively can’t say that for many R107 cars!!! Every car collector knows that most valuable cars are usually very first. and very last models produced!! This baby is one of those highly desirable cars!!! 1971 was the first year of R107 body style. and R107 chassis of the 280. 50. 80. 50 and 560SLs was one of the longest running production bodies in the Diamler-Benz AG's line spanning from 1971-1989!! Although most R107s are extremely well built and collectable. the most desirable and collectable of the R107’s are the early production cars with its features – mainly short or “Euro” bumpers. and higher horse-power than its latter cousins. It is also the first V8 powered two-seater to be built at the Stuttgart. Germany factory. Early Mercedes R107 cars are becoming next highly collectible SL after the pricey and very famous W113 280SL Pagoda Mercedes!! Part of what makes them so desirable to Collectors and Mercedes enthusiasts is the increased U. S. emissions and safety requirements starting in 1973 causing later models to be fitted with special crash bumpers and emissions control systems resulting in reduced overall look. performance and horse-power. Beside more powerful engine. this beauty also features more elegant European style “short” bumpers. and they make this Mercedes look absolutely stunning! Another rare and very desirable detail that his SL features is even though it is labeled as 350SL. because it is built for US market. it comes with larger 4. 5 V8 engine. where European 350SL’s featured 3. 5 V8 engines!!! Only handful of very early cars were “mislabeled” by Mercedes. and later 1972 USA models were correctly labeled as 450SL’s to match the 4. 5 V8 engines that were in them. This Beauty was born in July of 1971. as a production number 137 and sold to its very first owner on December 22nd of 1971. making it an amazing Christmas Present to someone!!!! Original temporary registration is included with this beauty!!Documentation shows that this beauty was a 3 owner vehicle. and love of its previous owners really reflects in its condition! It only has 106. 00 documented and well cared miles (only about 2. 00 miles per year!!!!) Owning a Mercedes SL gives a person a real driving enjoyment and pride of ownership. When these cars were first manufactured. Mercedes-Benz adhered to construction methods that resulted in a standard that was the envy of the automotive industry. Every Mercedes-Benz model shared a build quality second to none. About the car: Its very rare and desirable Dark Olive Green (paint code 291 – Dunkeloliv) paint has a beautiful shine and luster. and it makes this Beautiful German Roadster look stunning! Chrome is in great condition. complete with healthy luster. and this beautiful roadster is a head turner and conversation piece everywhere it goes. This car was always loved and garaged. so it is very solid. and its undercarriage is all original. unmolested and most importantly it is rust free! Body is also very straight and solid. and all doors. hood. and trunk are operating with ease. with everything lining up as it should. It has been always garaged. pampered and kept away from rain and bad weather. Factory VIN # stamping on the front radiator support is another sign of originality of this car (Please see pictures). There is not a lot of 350SL’s out there in this solid and amazingly kept and preserved condition. especially after 44 years of life on the road!! It comes with both soft top. and the hard top! Parchment (Light Tan) Canvas Soft top is like brand new. in excellent condition. and it is very easy to operate. Back Plastic windows are crystal clear! Very interesting fact. that makes this beauty rare. and stand out in crowd of other R107 SL's is that Only very early production R107's used to come with Parchment Canvas Soft top as a soft top color option. beside Black. Dark Brown. and Dark Blue colors that Mercedes also offered! Mercedes stopped offering Parchment color by March of 1972. and only continued to offer Black. Dark Brown. and Dark Blue colored soft tops for the rest of the run of R107's which ceased in 1989. Original Hard top is also in excellent condition. including all original Sekurit glass. and the headliner which is clean. and rips and tears free!!

Automatic Transmission shifts smoothly and effortlessly through every gear. This German Roadster handles great at the high speeds. and it is very comfortable. Highly Polished Aluminum Bundt Wheels are wrapped in four new matching Goodyear tires. They are in excellent condition. with plenty of life left in them. and they make this car float on the road. Lightweight Aluminum Bundt wheels where an upgrade option over regular steel wheels with color coded hub caps on early 107 cars. same as on its predecessor W113 280SL Pagoda's. Air Condition works as it should. and this car is ready for some topless fun!!!! This beautiful roadster comes complete with all of its original books and manuals. original production data card. original temporary registration card. as well as its original tool set. neatly wrapped in green canvas Mercedes pouch. like in W113 Pagodas. as later cars were fitted with tool set in red canvas pouch. ORIGINAL Dunlop spare tire is still in the trunk. and when you take a look at it. you will notice. Original Red Markings on the tire’s tread. and ORIGINAL green dots on both the tire and the Mercedes Steel Wheel (please see pictures). which indicates that this spare tire NEVER touched the road. nor it was ever mounted on the car!!!!!
