PPW Motorcars is pleased to offer this stunning 1972 Mercedes-Benz 350SL, which was exquisitely ordered in the Special Order Silver Grey Metallic with a beautiful brand new Black top over a powdery Black MB-Tex Interior! Being the only one we have come across in Silver Grey over a Black interior, this is one of the rarest and best possible combination that could have rolled off the factory floor! As a gentleman's car, this is one of the few that was ordered in classic, understated, and elegant colors. The stunning and timeless colors are both period correct and still fashionable today whether it be a trip to the country club or country home with understated elegance.

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. 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.

Setting this vehicle apart from nearly all others is that it was a European ordered car and thus, has superior drivetrain from all US vehicles. The Euro cars came with a 3.5L V8 that produced slightly more power but what is important is how they do it. The car revs much faster and higher for a significantly better sportscar experience but still retains all of the comfort you would expect a Mercedes SL to have. The engine, unlike the 4.5L engines of the other cars is also much lighter for a almost 911 like driving experience unlike the heavy and sluggish 4.5L cars. The lighter engine significantly improves handling and acceleration. If you have been looking at an SL but wish it performed more like a 911, this is absolutely the car for you. Also, do not be confused by other 1972 and 1973 examples that have European bumpers, they are not European cars, only cars with the vin 107043 are European vehicles, all cars with 107044 are us cars with the heavier, more sluggish 4.5L engine. Further, this vehicle just underwent a major service and is ready to be enjoyed today! During the service we changed the oil/filter, spark plugs, plug wires, installed brand new tires, ball joints, belts, air filter, fuel pump, fuel filter, and even went as far as to remove and send out the fuel tank to be professionally refinished inside and out, further, we also installed a new soft top and have replaced all body rubber. We have not seen a better car, at any price. Offered for the true collector, investor, or enthusiast who understands and appreciates the investment potential of this extremely rare, low mile, top of the line, correct, and European Ordered Mercedes-Benz 350SL! Bid with confidence-you will not be disappointed in this truly amazing motorcar!
