This is a very interesting Euro 4-speed 350SL ...
Do I want it - Yes, but no where to park it and wifey would kill me !!

Looks good. Ironically one of my driving 4-speed SL was also mug night blue and repainted some other color. Why would anyone change the color on a midnight blue car?

That's a nice looking car. I don't know. Midnight blue looks like a nice color to me. It goes well with the Palomino/Tan interior too.

Currently on BaB and looks like a proper and well kept '87. Not in the market but if as represented worth a look:

VIN- WDB10704612000802



Hello all,

Yesterday I was driving to Costco when I looked over at Mercedes Benz dealer and saw euro headlights and bumpers on a 107 staring at me. I stopped in. I went back today to give it another look. I’ve driven it both times.

The car is dark blue with creme interior. I did not look for a data card on the radiator mount. There is not one on the door frame and there was no a visible VIN that I observed.

Details:
1981 500SL R107046
Tri-y’s and dual exhaust all the way back- factory with resonator.
4 speed gear box- though selector does not have the “B-1” switch my ’83 500SL has. It has an “S”.


211,6— miles.
Slightly worn drivers seat. For the miles, not bad at all.
There is a slight horizontal crease in the driver quarter panel underneath the tail light and above the bumper.

Heated driver and passenger seats- both work.


Aftermarket alpine cd player. Antenna seems to be always up until car is turned off.

Has security system that must be activated before car will start.


There is some minimal paint chipping on the driver door lower corner.

There is no visible signs of rust or presence of rust.


WHEELS AND TIRES

225/50R16 on all four Ronal R9 (looks to be) 8 1/2 wide. ET11. ( I am estimating on the ET judging from how the sit compared to my R9’s I personally own on my C107).


ABS-

Have not inspected timing chain as of this writing.

Has white smoke on start-up and on acceleration.

Smooth idle at 700rpm.

Car clunks into reverse or drive. (Vacuum setting.) Pops down a gear when driving very easily on acceleration.

Same Lorinser body kit that was on my 1985 280sl 5-speed when I bought it. I removed both parts (front and rear) and added a 1986+ front air dam. A 380sl chin spoiler shouldn’t be too hard to come by if you want to go back to stock.

I've got a tongue from an 80 and a chin from an 83. I have always liked the side bolsters but not the rear end valance. Car runs like a jealous girlfriend chasing your ex!
