This is a rare find in the US and a very responsive and lively 107 series SL.

The last service noted while in Germany was on 3-27-84 with 19,800km on the clock.

The next entry is on 3-17-89 indicating a service in Costa Mesa, CA with 71,961 miles.

So the car has certainly spent most of its life in CA.

The undercarriage reflects this and is absolutely rust free and still showing much original honey colored factory applied sealer.
