Premiering for US sales in 1972, the 350SL was a total makeover from the Pagoda cars of the 1960s. It offered V-8 power, plenty of options, and a refined design and interior. The SL now had fuel injection, early engine management, and creature comforts of the sedans of the same era. They were indeed cutting edge, as SL models always have been. Today they are often noted as second or third in the hierarchy of collectible SL models. The 300SL/190SL leads the way with price trends, while the Pagoda offers a sporty car for a bit less and so it has easily achieved iconic status. The 107 however, has always remained in the shadow of its big brothers, until recently. As it can be said with most makes and models, the first year of anything has a certain importance, especially if it remains well-preserved and indicative of the manufacturer’s original design and intent. The 1972 Mercedes-Benz 350SL offers the purity of an original design, a new beginning, and with this in its contemporary setting, an opportunity for a car worth noting as investment grade.

 

The magnificent 1972 Mercedes-Benz 350SL Roadster featured here is finished in gorgeous and bright Signal Red over a black interior. This motorcar has been meticulously maintained by its one and only owner since new, and spent nearly all of its life in the dry climate of Arizona. This highly desirable 350SL Roadster, one of 4,778 made, has been driven just over 30,000 miles and can virtually not be told from new. Excellent documentation accompanies this beautiful convertible, including original manuals, tools kit, owner’s manual, and more! This 1972 Mercedes-Benz 350SL Roadster is among one of the nicest, lowest mile examples you will find on the market today. We are proud to offer this investment-grade Mercedes-Benz 350SL to the most demanding collector investor or enthusiast who will settle for nothing but the best!
