It comes with its factory hardtop and looks sharp overall.
Resprayed in its current medium blue by a previous owner and fitted with a contrasting dark blue soft top, his r107 looks much fresher than its 185k miles would suggest. The traditional Mercedes “Bundt” alloys were refinished some years ago, ut still look good.

Black upholstery and carpets have all held up very well, hough the car does havesome minor modifications and updates from stock. The stereo systemhas been replaced with a Bluetooth-capable Alpine headunit and a pair of Eclipse speakers mounted in the rear storage area. The steering wheel is a newer Momo item, hough the original is included as well. The upholstery shows no cracking or seam splitting, All features, ncluding A/C, re said to work as they should.
The M117 V8 in this r107-SL has about 185k miles on it, ut features plenty of recent maintenance including tuning of the fuel injection, elts changed about 10k miles ago and a replaced muffler. Additionally, he transmission was rebuilt about 2k miles ago,the differential replaced, ilstein shocks fitted, nd the radiator and A/C condenser were serviced.
