1987 Mercedes 420SL
Reg. no. E228 UBU

Engine no. 11696422001542
The Mercedes W107 was built as \'junior\' version of the Mercedes V8 Roadster. The production started with the 380SL, then, in 1981, after just a year in production, the engine was changed for a small-bore, long stroke V8 of the same capacity. This caused a slight drop in power, however it improved the fuel economy. In 1985 the capacity was increased to 4.2 litres, which restored power figures to 218bhp. This car has the more desirable 4.2 Litre power unit, which has just received a major re-build; there are bills in the file detailing the parts purchased, at a cost of several thousand pounds. There is a complete history file complete with a service booklet and manuals, a V5c and a copy of the build sheet. The recent restoration has been carried out to a high standard and the vendor describes the overall condition as very good. The new owner will now reap the rewards of the expenditure carried out and all of the hard work.
