PPW Motorcars is pleased to offer this gorgeous first year Mercedes-Benz 350SL. This beautiful and highly correct 1972 Mercedes-Benz 350SL, which is showing beautifully in the iconic and period Champagne over a soft and supple Bamboo Interior is as good as they come. Being one of the only one we have come across in Champagne over Bamboo, it is our opinion that this is the one of the best possible combination for an early R107! As gentleman’s car, this is one of the few that exists in these classic, rare, and elegant colors (many were repainted another color). The stunning and timeless colors are both period correct and still fashionable today whether it be a trip to the country club or long drive to one’s country home.

What makes this vehicle truly worth owning is the level of detail and hand assembled craftsmanship that is present in no automobile currently produced. This magnificent motorcar was produced in an era when owning a Mercedes-Benz meant something significant. There was no such thing as a $299 a month lease on a new C-Class; ownership was reserved for just a select few. With an MSRP of over $11,000, almost double the price of a Cadillac. This vehicle was one of the most expensive and best overall vehicles available during its time; it combined the road holding ability of a sports car with the opulent appointments of the finest luxury cars. This was a vehicle for the most discerning individual to whom sacrificing any virtue of the vehicle for the sake of another was unacceptable.

This particular example has been ordered with nearly every option available; fitted with Climate Control Air Conditioning, Bamboo Interior, Power Windows, Hardtop, Right Outside Mirror, Becker Europa Stereo, Electric Antenna, and Classic Hubcap Wheels (Most all are Bundt Wheels). Setting this vehicle apart from all others, aside from mileage is the wonderful condition. Having been lovingly cared for by just two owners from new this example has been meticulously cared for with an ‘open checkbook philosophy’. This magnificent motorcar is incredibly correct! Further, we just performed a Major Service to ensure this magnificent motorcar is ready to be enjoyed by the next owner including a new timing chain, sub frame mounts, engine mounts, and much more! Retail cost on a service like this would eclipse $10,000. We are proud to offer what we believe to be one of the best example of the coveted first year 350SL Mercedes available anywhere. Offered to the collector, enthusiast, or investor who appreciates the magnificent investment potential of this magnificent motorcar! Bid with confidence-you will not be disappointed in this truly amazing motorcar!
