It’s not everyday that one gets to drive a legend. With a lineage of design and production longer and more distinguished than that of most other products of fine auto makers, the SL design owes much of its character to the carefully crafted and race inspired SLs which have fostered the mystique of Mercedes automobiles for generations. The one-year-only 350SL was a total makeover from the Pagoda cars of the 1960s. It offered V8 power, plenty of options, a refined design and interior. They were indeed cutting edge, as SL's always have been.
!! It spanned 18 model years in the United States and abroad without body panel changes of any kind. !! Since the 1950s, the SL designation represented “Sport” for S, and “Light” for L. !!
As it can be said with most makes and models, the first year of anything has certain importance, especially if it remains well-preserved and indicative of the manufacturer's original design and intent. The 1972 350SL offers purity of an original design and a new beginning. The example offered here is a very nice and mostly original 1972 Mercedes-Benz 350SL roadster. An extreme rarity, this 350SL has lived a privileged life of care and enjoyment.
Finished in a rare, Reed Green exterior with well cared for Two Tone Brown vinyl interior, this increasingly uncommon icon of the early 70's is well equipped with an original Black soft top and removable hardtop. The 4.5 liter V8 is matted to a smooth shifting 3-Speed Automatic transmission with just over 80K miles. Present are books, tool set, steel spare tire and the original jack. The Becker radio is still equipped and operational with an upgraded bluetooth connection. A/C blows cold. Interior condition is superb for a 47 year old vehicle, no foul odors, Non-Smoker. No rips, tears or cuts in the seats. Carpets look brand new.
!! 14" Pressed Steel Disc Wheels w/Matching Reed Green Full Wheel Covers Wrapped in Michelin MXV Radials All-Around !!
The “350” designation all U.S. 107s wore for the first model year was technically inaccurate, since it did not reflect the 4.5-liter V8 under hood. What it did represent was a 3.5-liter V8 created for European models, and Mercedes-Benz’s desire to maintain name continuity among continents. It has been reported a short-lived bulletin from Mercedes headquarters in ’73 directed dealers to replace 350SL badges with 450SL ones on any ’72 models that came in for service. Pictures show the 450 badge but has since been reverted to the 350 badge.
!! 2 Keys !! Owners Manuals w/Case !! Various Literature !! Becker Audio Manuals !! 2-Piece Factory Floormats !! Hard Top !! Convertible Top Hardware !! Temporary Steel Spare Tire w/Jack and Tools !!
All things considered, this 107 presents a unique opportunity to acquire a well-kept Mercedes-Benz SL that is on the cusp of being a true collector car. Original books and manuals, finished in handsome colors and offered with both of its tops put this 107 in a category all its own.
