This Astra Silver with blue leather Mercedes-Benz 350 SL, registered in June 1979, comes with a matching hard-top. Its soft-top was new in 2016, with a new radiator fitted in 2017, new water pump in 2019, and new battery in 2020. New wheels have also been fitted at some point. The vendor, who has owned it for five years, describes it as running well with no issues. 78,961 miles are indicated on the odometer and the MoT is valid until September 2023 although, as an historic vehicle, the 350 SL no longer requires annual testing. Paperwork with the Mercedes includes the V5C, most MoT certificates back to 1985, quite a large selection of invoices and photocopies of some sections on the owner's handbook. There's also some old tax discs plus the service book, which has entries up to December 1982 and 30,918 miles.
