Mercedes Benz 300SL

I saw this car recently in Hyde outside a Garage/MoT Test Centre.
When people mention the Mercedes Benz 300SL I immediately think of the Gullwing W198 model produced between 1954 and 1963 with the straight-6 2,996cc M198 engine. This, though, is the R107/SL model that Mercedes Benz made from 1985 and 1989 and has the straight-6 2,962cc M103 engine.
The registration number starts with 'F' and was therefore originally issued to a car first registered between 1 August 1967 and 31 July 1968.
