Offered at No Reserve, this handsome and desirable early model R107 Series SL is finished in the eye-catching combination of Yellow bodywork matched to Brown MB-Tex interior trim and Brown hood. Its specification includes: righthand drive, automatic transmission, wind-up windows, rear seats, and alloy wheels. A sill plate confirms the supplying dealer to have been T H Bennett of Warton in Lancashire, while the displayed mileage of 82,930, though unwarranted, is certainly wholly credible. 'EPY 453' comes complete with an excellent history file containing an operator's manual and service and dealer books, plus MOT certificates dating back to 1990, as well as a current one valid into June 2020. The 350 SL was available from 1971 to 1980. It produced some 200bhp at 5,800rpm and 211 lb ft of torque at 4,000 rpm, which was sufficient output to endow the model with swift, effortless acceleration and a top speed of a whisker over 130mph.
